The Elegant Resorts & Villas Collection
Learning and languid luxury
Here is a resort whose warm inner glow makes it hugely attractive on many levels. Nusa Dua is enclave with an excess of luxury resorts. However, the St Regis has carved out its own impressive niche. Stand out service begins at the airport; you are gently gathered up by a concierge, transported to the opulent entrance of the resort and delivered into the hands of a personal butler who oversees and anticipates your needs around the clock.
There is not a trace of minimalism anywhere in in any aspect of this graceful and sweeping resort. One stand out feature is the expansive lagoon. At night, when torches are lit, it conjures up images of the epic Hollywood sets. The lagoon flows amongst outdoor pavilions and luminous gardens and then draws guests towards a dazzling, sandy beachfront. If you are sensible enough to book a villa on the beach, your sunbeds and sunshades are “owned” by being numbered to match your villa.
Creative flair is what fires all of the handsome dining venues. Breakfast is a feast of bespoke delights; there’s a gourmet “deli” with a sensational collection of ice creams; breezy glamour is the soul of the beachfront restaurant and whether you sit inside or al fresco, the degustation menu is one of the hottest tickets in Bali.
Far removed from everything strenuous, the spa stands protected by a koi pond, a temple of temptation. Its beautiful rooms are adorned with cut-out butterfly screens that are backlit to perfection and glass domes imitate the ambience of silvery moons.
Bring the children. The excellent learning centre is a thought-provoking but also entertaining facility that provides half and full day programs that they simply adore.
Considering its grand scale, the St Regis still manages to feel intimate, especially when you are ensconced in your villa where astonishing attention to detail is just the beginning.
