There’s much to love about the St. Regis on Nusa Dua Beach in Bali. This spectacular 5-star resort offers the most divine beachfront accommodations, inspired by Balinese living and with all the luxuries of home.

While the whole experience is unforgettable, sometimes it’s the small details that really push me to LOVE a place. Believe it or not, with the St. Regis Bali, it was an Espresso Banana Smoothie I enjoyed at the resort’s renowned King Cole Bar that really blew me away! Seriously, anyone who knows me knows I’m an espresso aficionado, but even I didn’t know my favorite bean could deliver this level of deliciousness!

The comfortable lounge area is perfect for afternoon client meetings, or if you’re here for a girls’ getaway, a round of craft cocktails. Meanwhile, the patio offers an oceanfront breeze best enjoyed with your love. I also adored dropping by the bar with Glenn for a light dinner of delicious pizza and a fabulous bottle of wine.
