It’s that awkward time of year where the high of December’s getaway has segued into January’s deadlines and February’s festivities. Is it too soon to jet off on another vacation? Well, not if the universe provides. And in this instalment of Female Escapes, the beaches of Nusa Dua are calling.

The Westin Nusa Dua, Bali

Nestled in an enclave of Bali’s southern peninsula that’s a 20-minute car ride away from the well-known Kuta beach, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali spans 433 rooms — equipped with idyllic views of its pools, garden and the Indian Ocean, depending on the type of room you’re checking into — designed for that delicate balance of play and tranquility most head to Bali for. But whether it’s the resort’s Deluxe Garden (its entry level room spanning 38 sq metres) or Family Suite (117 sq metres) that’s your temporary abode, the resort’s modern take on Balinese decor, and views of its picturesque landscape will have you unwinding once you set foot within (did we mention there’s 24-hour in-room dining?). If that’s not enough, lounging by their three pools — ranging saltwater, fresh water and one for the young ones — to hitting up the spa, or booking yourself a meditation session with their Wellness Specialist, should do the trick.

For those who fancy staying active even while taking time off, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali’s two tennis courts and fitness studio are yours for the taking, with water sports such as wind surfing, jet skiing and scuba diving available for adventurous spirits — right on its beachfront. As night falls, take your sundowner by the sea to nature’s calming soundtrack of waves crashing, as the resort’s beachfront bar is up and running till one in the morning. Not forgetting the foodies, it is also home to multiple restaurants offering up a dizzying array of cuisines; sample Balinese, Indian, Mediterranean and Italian spreads to name but a few.

And for those with children in tow, dropping them off at the kids club for a little me time is not all you can do — the little ones are in for a treat if you book them into The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali’s kids spa. Services run the gamut of massages, facials, manis and pedis plus, nail art and hair braiding. Now that’s something else.
