Quality time in Nusa Dua, Bali with a 1 year old

Nusa Dua

If you’re a parent looking for a fantastic destination to enjoy with your little one, I’ve got a heartwarming story to share. My 3 days trip to Nusa Dua, Bali with my 1 year old toddler was nothing short of a dream come true.

The adventure began with a 3 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar. I was a bit concerned about how my toddler would handle the journey, but fortune favoured us – she slept soundly and woke up just in time for landing. How lucky was I?!

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua

When we landed there was a car waiting for us to bring us from the airport to our hotel, the splendid The Westin Resort Nusa Dua. A small tip from me: as a parent, staying connected is crucial, so I had pre-arranged a roaming bundle with my local provider for our 3 days in Bali, ensuring peace of mind during our solo adventure.

The 15 minutes drive from the airport to the Westin was smooth and upon arrival, we were greeted by the sheer beauty of the resort. Opting for a ground-floor room turned out to be a brilliant choice; it made stepping outside very easy, with no elevator waits – perfect for keeping up with an impatient and curious little toddler.

Meals made easy with a toddler in tow

Our first day in Bali was all about the sea. After a quick check-in around 4 pm, we headed straight to the beach, ordered some delicious food and just enjoyed. My daughter was eager to explore and she was trying to run around all the time. To make things easier for the upcoming days, I decided to order GrabFood in our cozy hotel room – a practical choice that allowed us to enjoy our meal while keeping a watchful eye on my inquisitive little one.

The next day, we started with a luxurious breakfast and I must say, the spread was impressive. The Westin Nusa Dua offered a wealth of dining options. After breakfast, we explored the resort, discovering several pools, including a delightful kiddie pool and a fantastic kids’ club with separate areas for babies, toddlers and older children.

Biking, views and more

One of the highlights of our trip was the complementary biking service at the hotel. We explored the island, and marvelled at the breathtaking views while biking to Pura Nusa Dharma and Peninsula Island. These places have amazing green parks and beautiful views of the sea. Really worth visiting.  We also visited a charming small market which is just outside the Melia Resort. Although I couldn’t get my hair braided with my toddler in tow, we did indulge in some relaxing foot massages. It was quite an amusing experience and my daughter seemed to enjoy it too.

In the evenings, we scoured the beach for crabs, shells and little fish. With the low tide, it was easy to walk around and we could also watch a good view of the sunset which is actually on the other side of Bali. And of course we sipped on refreshing coconut water, took dips in the pool and the sea multiple times a day, had some ice cream and found some downtime during my daughter’s naps.

The 3 days in Nusa Dua Bali, were truly remarkable. If I had the chance, I’d do it all over again. It was an adventure filled with endless memories, stunning views and quality time with my precious 1 year old.
