Experience staying at Mulia Resort Nusa Dua, Bali

Experience staying at Mulia Resort Nusa Dua, Bali

When the last holiday, I stay at a five-star hotel, Nusa Dua region, for two nights in Mulia Resort Nusa Dua, Bali Indonesia, one of the luxury hotels in Bali. The hotel is located between St. Regis and Nikko. This hotel is more suited called the resort, because the area is very spacious with all the needs of vacationing there in Mulia. 

Mulia Resort Nusa Dua is a new hotel in Bali. The hotel is still very new. It appears in every corner of the building still feels the paint is still bright with no stains and crust. Plants were planted around serort also not growing well. The gardens surrounding the resort also has not seen the perfect green. However, the hotel can provide high satisfaction when I first entered the resort area.

Mulia hotel Bali was at the beach with beautiful white sand, the beach is named Beach Geger. Mulia consists of three properties, namely The Mulia, Mulia Villas, and Mulia Resort. Mulia distance of Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport about 14 km. So, with an average speed of 60 km / h, I could arrive in less than 15 minutes in Mulia Resort.

Entering the gate leading into the hotel lobby, as usual, and in general, security is a major, I had to undergo a security check process. From the gate already seen how magnificent lobby of Mulia, and the gardens are arranged beautifully, although many plants that have not grown to perfection. I went through security check run quickly and smoothly, not convoluted. Usually at another hotel, the security officer hotel guests sometimes ask, "What is your purpose, sir?". Even sometimes accompanied with a look of suspicion, I do not like to get a question like that, and sometimes even my desire to stay at the hotel immediately disappear instantly. But at Mulia I get a different experience from other hotels in Bali in general. At Mulia hotel Bali I do not get the odd question and suspicious gaze of security officers. Even after the examination process, I got a friendly smile and a thank you from a security officer. That attitude makes me feel happy and feel honored since entering the gates of the hotel.

On arrival at the hotel lobby of Mulia, I greeted the concierge and valet parking, with a smile and friendly greeting without gaze reluctantly, because I included a local, not a secret anymore if local guests tend to be ignored and not considered special, though not all like that. The concierge directed me to the location of the car park is very spacious and clean. Parking location with lobby is not too far away, just a few footsteps away. Until the lobby, I was greeted by the receptionist at the hotel. Receptionist were welcoming and friendly, no stares reluctant to serve local guests like me. We were making small talk just like new with a familiar friend, that's what I like, so I do not feel awkward.

The check runs fast, smooth and fun, and I was ushered up to the room, accompanied by an explanation of the room, and the number that can be on the phone if you need help.

Finally I got a room to stay with a spacious room, clean, and with modern facilities. After cleaning up, I pack up to go to a restaurant that is in the hotel for dinner. And dinner was held fun, there are several options ranging from Japan to western food. The food was delicious, the service is also very good.

If assessed, Mulia Resort is a very nice and pleasant. All facilities have been available in this place. Fitness center, spa, beach with sand pusih very clean, comfortable and clean. Service of the hotel clerk was also very satisfying. They are very friendly and always smiling to the guests.

One of the very unique and interesting in Mulia Resort is very Luat pool, with strange statues that stand at the edge of the pond. As if I was in the lobby of a great empire. Statues like to pay tribute to me.

Budget are disbursed Dreamfields Festival visitors are very large. It can be said that this festival is not for people who do not have a lot of money. At least someone who attended the festival should have as much money as $ 500 in order to fully enjoy this festival. That's because in the festival area, there are many booths that sell alcoholic beverages imported. In addition to ticket prices are relatively very expensive, as well as other needs, such as drugs, in order to survive to enjoy the music and danced until morning. Because dancing until morning without drugs, favors and will not be able to survive until morning.

Many people believe that music lovers of EDM (Electro Dance Music) is the rich. To enjoy the music as it is, must come to a party at the cafe, all-night clubbing and of course accompanied by alcoholic beverages, and perhaps also with drugs.

There are a few people say that the presence of drugs at these parties are very large numbers, and the resale value is also very large. Any required stop is always available, even no alcohol sellers who know the drug trafficking routes in the festival. Things like this is not a secret. Because these parties can only be enjoyed with alcohol and drugs.

Despite the excitement and pleasure underway at GWK, but criticism also emerged from several parties, and it is very reasonable. Some owners of Majapahit temple located in one area of ​​the pedestal, was disappointed with the organizers Dreamfields. Because of a Linga (a place of worship for Hindus) had to be evicted from the investor GWK of the Majapahit temple. Though there is no statue of King Airlangga who ultimately have to be evicted.

This event is not in accordance with the concept of culture in Bali. Vishnu statue magnificent and sacred should see the party scene in full madness. Even the circulation of drugs and alcohol ironically occurred at GWK area. While Vishnu statue pedestal is right, the figure of the god is sanctified by the Hindu community.

Upon hearing about Nusa Dua, then the mind will be flashed on the five-star complex of hotels with the best service and high security.

"Mulia" is an Indonesian word in meaning noble / glorious / precious / lofty. As the name implies, we become like a noble at this hotel, very pampered with the comfort and facilities. This hotel is very clean and spacious. Also the condition of the room very neat and attention to detail. If you are in the hotel, then you will not want to go out the resort area at all, because a lot of things that you require is available at this hotel.

On arriving at Mulia Resort, the distance from the parking lot toward the hotel lobby is very far away. So we had to take the vehicle provided by the hotel to get to the hotel lobby, and vice versa. Although the distance from the parking lot to the lobby is quite far, but the service provided to each newly arriving hotel guests is very good and satisfying.

Mulia hotel is very suitable as a place to stay for newlyweds on their honeymoon in Bali. One of the rooms is perfect for honeymooners is Mulia Grandeur. Our room was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and has a very good design. The bathroom is fitted with a large bathtub, with transparent glass as a separator with a bedroom (but can be closed when not desired). Each bathroom is equipped with monoblock premium with the latest technology, without touch, so anyone staying at this hotel will find it increasingly spoiled by Mulia.

Great expectations in this room is very nice, very clean private beach with white sand, the waves are not too big and quiet, the wind is not too tight and. If during the afternoon, from the room we can see the sun set, without having to exit the room to the beach. But if you want to go to the beach, you will feel the water is cool, calm, quiet shades, we can also rent kayaks on the beach, so no need to get out of the resort if you want to have fun on the beach.

While at the Mulia hotel, we will get Welcoming Drink (drink greeter as an appreciation of the hotel told us who had chosen Mulia, as a place to stay) which can be directly selected in the Sky Bar. From this bar you can enjoy all the dishes were given while enjoying the sunset (if you're here during the afternoon), with beautiful scenery. Thus, if the lovers were honeymooning in Bali will get a romantic feel.

We can try the fitness center, the tools provided quite the most complete of the other places in Bali. Various weight lifting equipment is also available. So if you need a gym, and was staying at the hotel Mulia, you do not need to exit the resort, to find a fitness center, as Mulia has provided all that is needed.

Mulia also provides a spa. You can try the spa there. If you are in the hotel lobby, and look for the spa at this resort, you will be escorted by buggy. But the price of a spa at this place is fantastic, there is above the average of the five-star hotel spa in other places. In the spa facilities, there is also a local therapist, couples rooms are available as well, but what you get will not be worth the price.

When talking about cleanliness, then Mulia is winner. Cleanliness of the resort is very well preserved. In every corner of the resort looks very clean, also the large swimming pool, the water is very clean and clear. Perhaps because the resort is still very new, so not visible stains of dirt carried by hotel guests.

Mulia Resort has a very good service. You will be spoiled by all the staff who serve you. All the staff and employees of the hotel would always say hello to you, wherever you are. Very friendly, so they are as your own family. This condition is very characteristic nature of Balinese people are very friendly to anyone who visits.

If you leave stuff in the hotel room that you rent, after you go from this hotel, then you will get an email from Mulia, even though it's only a soap, you will be notified by Mulia that you forgot to bring your soap. Very good service and classy. Very attentive to every detail whatsoever for your comfort and satisfaction.

Some tips for you who want to stay in Mulia:

- If your want to stay at this hotel in a few days, and spend all your time in the resort area, choose a room that is close to the beach, or a room overlooking the beach.

Kuta Beach shoreline continues to decrease

Kuta Beach
Kuta Beach is now in danger of disappearing from the island of Bali. The beach with the highest tourist arrivals and tourism became an icon of Bali island, is increasingly alarming. The threat of erosion continues to be a problem of the existence of this beach. Since time immemorial to the present, extensive shoreline continues to decrease. The sea water is getting closer to the mainland. There has been no effort by the government to this problem.

Abrasion on the beach is a major problem in disaster faced by Bali. Abrasion is very difficult to avoid, although it can be prevented, but it requires a very large cost, but no guarantee can survive in a very long period of time. Coastal erosion in the area of ​​South Bali and in the West Bali, has become a serious problem that must be faced by people, especially for people who live on the coast.

Kuta Beach, as an international attraction, wide lips beaches diminishing from year to year. This condition is recognized by the coast guard officers and rescue workers. Since they become a coast guard officer, they feel less and less extensive shoreline from year to year. They felt that the sea water has almost reached to the ground. Conditions pose a threat to this attraction, also for the people who are around the coast.

Kuta Beach
Changes in ocean currents are a major cause of erosion on the coast, especially in the South and West Bali. There has been no research on changes in ocean currents in South Bali. But many developing opinions is caused by reclamation and marine piling for various purposes. There is also a saying that changes in ocean currents due to global warming.

Beaches are already starting to disappear already occurred in the area of West Bali. The beaches in West Bali located in Jembrana, many are exposed to abrasion. Sand eroded by water and washed out to sea, this results in the loss of the beach, sea silting, damage to seabed biota, and the constantly changing flow of the weapon system.

The beaches in Jembrana were already destroyed by abrasion is Candikusuma beach, Pebuahan beach and Baluk beach, Pengambengan beach, Perancak beach, Penyaringan beach, Yehembang beach, and some beaches in Pekutatan. Not all beaches have in tangulangi by local governments to avoid abrasion. One of the most severe condition of the beach is exposed to abrasion in Pegambengan and Perancak. Many homes were destroyed by the waves.

Kuta Beach also experienced the same thing. Although can not be perceived directly by the citizens. However, changes to the beach can be perceived by the coast guard officers and rescue workers who have how in Kuta since decades ago. Diminishing shoreline, shortening the sea water to the mainland. Also the sea level is increasing rapidly, because the polar ice is melting much. It is estimated that sea level increases 1 centimeter every year.

If this continues to happen, the possibility of Kuta Beach a few more decades will disappear. The only remaining land will be submerged. The possibility Bali also will sink, if ti polar ice continues to melt the earth.
