If you are looking to get away from the busy Kuta, Legian and Seminyak tourist areas. Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa are conveniently located only a 20 minute drive away!
Nusa Dua is an obscure strip of coast on Bali’s southern Bukit, with striking white sand beaches and two peninsular islets. It is located 40 km from the Ngurah Rai International Airport. Part of Nusa Dua is a closed enclave, or tourism district, that is located on the southeast side of the peninsula. Atmosphere in Nusa Dua is relatively quiet and relaxed. As a result, Nusa Dua is an official venue for International conferences, meetings and events attended by important figures from all over the world. The whole area has a postcard perfect clean, dream-like, tropical paradise feeling about it that makes the area popular with both huge international resorts and honeymooners.

Tanjung Benoa is the northern extension of Nusa Dua. Now that the main enclave of Nusa Dua is full, many international hotels are choosing to build in this area. Both these areas feature calm waters and a white sand beach perfect for sunbathing. Tanjung Benoa has always been an area popular for water sports. In addition, Tanjung Benoa has the dubious distinction of being the centre of Bali’s turtle trade.
Accommodation & Real estate
Nusa Dua is where you will find most of Bali’s International 4 and 5 star hotels. The area is set in a manicured, not traditionally Balinese, garden environment. Tanjung Benoa has begun to have this same level of hotel standard, but unlike the main Nusa Dua there are more mid market hotels also available.
There are some great properties in this area, including upmarket villas, land, and extensive resorts with huge pools overlooking the ocean or views across to the islands of Penida and Nusa Lembongan. It can be hard to find property that is next to the beach, but if you are looking for land to build a hotel then look to purchase land in Tanjung Benoa, or South Nusa Dua.
Essentials & Amenities
There is a Hardy’s Supermarket built not far from this area. This place is perfect for buying most of the weekly essential items needed. Convenience stores are also a common sight. However, most people choose to purchase high quality groceries at Bali Deli or at a traditional market. There is one traditional market located in Benowa village.
Medical services are quite easy to find in this area, there are a hospital and an international standard clinic built not far from here. There is no International schools built here, the closest one is located, a 10 – 15 minute drive away, in Jimbaran.
Traffic & Transport
The roads in this area, especially on the main roads, are high quality, well maintained and wide. Traffic conditions here are light. You will mostly get problems one you leave Nusa Dua and try to head toward Seminyak. You can walk safety around Nusa Dua without fear of accidents and crime.
Nusa Dua is known as an enclave of large international 5-star resorts in south-eastern Bali. It is located 40 kilometres from Denpasar, the provincial capital of Bali, and administered under Kuta South District. Nusa Dua means two islands (nusa ‘island’, dua ‘two’) - wikipedia
