Situated minutes away from Bali’s popular 18-hole championship golf course and local attractions, offering a variety of entertainment and restaurants, the new hotel is situated in a prime location for travelers. Bali offers a wide selection of goods to take home as souvenirs, from sculpture, traditional and modern paintings to ceramics and fashion. All of them are available in shops and galleries throughout the island.
The 250 deluxe guestrooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Bali are filled with local charm, featuring unique paintings by I Gede Putra Udiyana, a recognized Balinese artist from Denpasar. Each spacious room offers, either a private balcony, a garden terrace or a terrace with close to pool access that allows guests to enjoy the fresh air and soak in the natural beauty that surrounds them. Deluxe bedding, with minimum 32-inch LCD panel TVs and satellite channels ensure that guests are able to enjoy, relax and unwind. Six suites with oversized accommodations and double-sized balconies are available for honeymooners.
MoMo Café, Courtyard’s Asian culinary innovation, presents a menu that blends western dishes with local favorites. Fresh local ingredients blended with the chef’s creativity makes the quality food a delight for guests. The open kitchen and wood-fire oven produce delightful aromas that create a warm home-like ambiance. MoMo 2 Go is providing “on the run” guests with a “grab and go” kiosk filled with sandwiches, pastries and a wide variety of beverages. The pool-side bar allows guests to treat themselves to cold drinks and tasty snacks while lounging in the sun.
A picture-perfect setting for destination weddings and gatherings, the Courtyard by Marriott Bali has two ballrooms with the largest one accommodating up to 180 persons for a sit down dinner or up to 324 theater style. Both rooms are versatile and can be divided into smaller meeting space. A stunning landscaped courtyard separates the two function rooms and makes for excellent breakout space or cocktail receptions al fresco.
Exercising outdoors is a must in Bali and an ideal track for runners is the idyllic paved surroundings of Nusa Dua, where they can work out and explore at the same time.
