Conrad Bali (Resort Ocean Suite)
Located along the pristine beaches of Nusa Dua along Tanjung Benoa lies the luxurious 5 star Conrad Resort. The spacious resort lies along 350 meters of beautiful beach and has 409 rooms and suites located across 4 wings.
During my stay, when I first arrived, my room was not ready, hence I was ushered to the lobby restaurant "EAST" where I had my lunch whilst admiring the awesome main pool view (pictured above). I had a serving of fish and chips whilst waiting for the room.
After a wait of approx an hour, I was upgraded to the Resort Ocean Suite on the North Wing with panoramic views of the Benoa bay.
The 90sqm Resort Ocean Suites offer panoramic view of the Benoa bay and comes with spacious and luxurious design. My suite features a living and dining area, 2 balconies and 1 outdoor lounging area with my personal day bed and garden. The accompanying bathroom faces the Benoa Bay with an ensuite bathroom that features separate shower and deep soaking tub with luxurious bath amenities from your choice of Aromatherapy Associates, Shanghai Tang or Tara Smith.
With every Conrad hotel stay, be ready to be welcomed to your room with your own take-home soft toy and during this stay, it was an adorable monkey lounging at the mini bar.
As a staying Hilton HHonors Diamond members also grant me additional benefits as a Club guest which includes access to the private club lounge and adult only pool, not forgetting complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and canapes at various locations within the resorts.
On-top of the above benefits, the Conrad Bali also offers various picturesque shots such as the beautiful water edge chapel for that iconic wedding and also beautiful huts and day beds along the Tanjung Benoa beach.
It is time for high tea and evening cocktails hence I headed back towards "EAST" for the complimentary high tea, book reading and lazing.
Indulge in fresh juices, gourmet tea and coffee, sweet treats and savoury delights as one admires the setting of the sun is a great indulgence in life.
One great feature of the main pool is that it is opened 24 hours and suitable for those who like a dip in the pool during the evening or late night. I for one enjoys it as the pool is much cooler at night with much lesser people.
The resort looks beautiful at night too with its many fountains and landscaped pools around.
After a swim in the pool and back at my room, it is unavoidable to feel famished and staying a resort allows u access to room service! I've ordered a serving of grilled chicken with rice and a portion of fried drumlets.
With the end of every day, comes the start of the next morning and yes sumptuous breakfast spread awaits. Being a club guest allows you to dine either at the club lounge or the main restaurant. As I was staying for a few days, I had the chance to try breakfast at both locations. The club lounge offers ala-carte and buffet options which have better quality that compensated for the lack of quantity. The main restaurant however could get crowded during peak hours. The breakfast at both locations are pretty good but i prefer to dine at the lounge.

Before we know it, its time to bid good-bye. It was a great and luxurious stay at the Conrad Bali, the service was incredible, lounge offering was great and the property itself is simply awesome for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city-life. The greatest thing I miss from the property had to be waking up to the beautiful sunrise from the balcony as I enjoy a sip of Nespresso coffee from my personal coffee machine.
