Eat, scuba, love at Bali’s Benoa beach

Instead of partying into oblivion at the usual spots like Kuta and Seminyak, hit up Benoa beach where you can go all out on water sports from jetskiing and snorkelling to seawalking and parasailing, and still enjoy succulent live seafood.

The 171-room beachside Holiday Inn Bali Benoa has just opened with a rather mind-boggling four pools (including an infinity pool and two swim-up bars) and tons of dining options.

The lush property has three restaurants including Nudi Beach Bar housed in a Balinese-style pavilion, Duke’s Pool Bar & Lounge, as well as the beach-fronting Pasar Market Cafe with live music. There’s also the Tea Tree Spa that comes with six treatment rooms using locally-sourced products. 

Here’s the good news. From now until Jun 15, 2015, there’s a special opening offer with room rates starting at US$99 ($133) per night. Head here to book.
