Guide to Visiting Nusa Dua With Kids, Toddlers or Babies
Nusa Dua kid friendly hotels
Nusa Dua is home to a stretch of beautiful luxury hotels! From the Grand Hyatt to the Westin you are spoiled for choice of luxury hotels and all have private beaches and immaculate manicured grounds and pools!
While we were in Nusa Dua with family we stayed at the Grand Hyatt – the very definition of a Nusa Dua kid friendly hotels. The Grand Hyatt is located at the end of Nusa Dua closest to the shopping centre and off resorts restaurants. This meant that we could easily leave the resort and check out the shops very easily by foot even in the heat which was one benefit to staying at this property.
This property was exceptionally family friendly and has five pools on site (I must admit in our four days there we didn’t get to explore them all) making it in my opinion of of the best Nusa Dua family friendly hotels. One of the pools at the Grand Hyatt Nusa Dua also had a great slide area which the older children were going crazy for. There are also several great eateries with kids friendly food. My little girl particularly enjoyed the pool front Italian while I was very impressed with the on-site Indonesian restaurant.
We didn’t try it but I have been told that the Grand Hyatt has one of the best Nusa Dua Kids Club if this is something you are interested in using while you are in the area.
Overall if you are looking for a Nusa Dua kid friendly hotel this could be it!

Other things to know about Nusa Dua with toddlers, kids and babies
Is nusa dua with toddler a good vacation?
Yes Nusa Dua with a toddler is totally doable and actually a great vacation as we discovered. Most of the hotels will have specific toddler friendly amenities and food that can cater even for the fussiest toddler. The one piece of advice we would give anyone visiting Nusa Dua with toddlers in tow is bring your own supplies as nappies, formula etc. There are limited supplies in Nusa Dua and those we found were definitely more expensive than at home.
Where can I buy supplies for babies and toddlers in Nusa Dua?
There is a shopping complex at one end of nusa Dua with souvenir shops and restaurants. It also was well stocked when we were there with milk for those travelling with littles.
