Getting There & Getting Around

Most if not all hotels in Nusa Dua offer an airport pickup service, but you can also find shuttles and cheap taxis at the airport. (Be sure to take only the official blue-and-yellow metered taxis.) Bemos from Denpasar go to Nusa Dua by way of Kuta and Jimbaran.

These big resorts make it so comfortable, you won't have to leave the grounds -- but even the most starry-eyed honeymooners might want a break from expensive hotel meals. Most hotel taxis are rentable at a pricey US$11 per hour; but if you are going out for the day, it can work out to be more convenient and more cost effective to hire a car and driver from a private company such as Amertha Dana (tel. 0361/735406).

Driving around Nusa Dua is confusing, making walking and cycling (most hotels rent bikes) the best, and really only, way to get a feel for the lay of the land. The hotels are all set side by side and a beachside boardwalk takes you all the way down the strip. It's about a 5km (3-mile) walk.

Fast Facts -- Prima Medika Clinic, in Grand Hyatt Hotel (tel. 0361/771234), has general clinic hours from 9am to 9pm and a 24-hour on-call service. The staff at Kimia Farmacy, Jl. Bypass Ngurah Rai 890 (tel. 0361/774118), are generally helpful and can prescribe minor medication for most ailments. A doctor is on-site daily 4 to 10pm to consult for any minor ailments. The police office of Bualu/Nusa Dua is located at Jl. Bypass Ngurah Rai (tel. 0361/772110). Most hotels can send letters and post cards. For parcels and any recorded items the only post office in the area is Udayana, Bukit Ungasan, Nusa Dua (tel. 0361/771202).
