Ulu Segara Luxury Suites & Villas Hotel in Nusa Dua, Bali

by Santorini Dave • Updated: February 5, 2019

Review of Ulu Segara Luxury Suites & Villas in Bali.

Ulu Segara Luxury Suites & Villas – Contemporary, intimate, and elegant, with endless sea views.

Far smaller and less pretentious than neighboring mega-resorts, the Ulu Segara faces a narrow private beach that disappears at high tide. The villas are massive with modern décor, garden inside and out, and plenty of windows. They also contain a bathroom as large as the bedroom, plunge pool with gazebo, and comfortable living/kitchen/dining areas. In the curved six-level block overlooking the clifftop infinity pool, the suites feature stylish Asian décor, kitchenette, huge lounge area, and broad balcony from which the sea views are sublime. The regular shuttle bus to Nusa Dua (six kilometers away) compensates for the isolation.

Ulu Segara Luxury Suites & Villas – The Location

  • Address: Jalan Raya Nusa Dua Selatan road. Follow the signs from the main road south of Nusa Dua.

Restaurants & Bars

  • Being so isolated, the options close by are limited to the 2 neighboring resorts:

  • Bali Collection – Otherwise, use the resort shuttle service and visit the Bali Collection mall in Nusa Dua (16-minute drive), and try:
  • Coco Bistro – Always popular for tasty food and affordable prices 9-minute drive.
  • Gourmet & Café – Delightful shady setting at the main gate. 15-minute drive.

Shops

  • Nowhere to spend any money nearby, so hop on the shuttle bus to Bali Collection, a delightful and extensive outdoor mall in Nusa Dua, with department stores, cavernous souvenir shops, and abundant café/bars.
