rcBreakText rcBreakWhiteText

Breathtaking natural beauty, the opportunity to make a spiritual connection or the chance to escape the everyday draw travelers from around the world to Nusa Dua, Bali. At The Ritz-Carlton, Bali, guests can experience all three. Set along the white-sand beachfront in Nusa Dua, the hotel overlooks the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. This is a place where days can be filled with sunrise yoga, surf lessons or a peek into a local seaweed farm. Nusa Dua's lush volcanic mountains and verdant rice paddies provide shelter for beautiful ancient temples including Uluwatu, where sunset hosts a traditional Kecak dance each day. Resort guests head out on cultural excursions, but they are also encouraged to discover why Bali is a destination where people seek peace and quiet.

Planning Your Trip

From sun-drenched tropical beaches and myriad ornate Balinese temples to lavish restaurants and bars and streets lined with boutiques and galleries, there’s so much to do during your stay on the Island of the Gods. Here are a few tips on what to bring, reserve, and do, so you can make the most of your time in Bali.

Soul Purification

The Ritz-Carlton, Bali is now offering guests the chance to participate in an authentic Soul Purification Ritual. Traditionally referred to as "Melukat," derived from the word ‘Lukat’ which means to purify in Balinese, the soul purification practice is centered on holy water. This spiritual activity is often performed when a Balinese native is about to enter a new phase in their life, is recovering from sickness, or celebrating either one of “Rites of Passage,” such as marriage or childbirth, and the holy water is used to purify and cleanse the body, mind, and soul.

At The Ritz-Carlton, Bali, the Soul Purification Ritual takes place on the secluded white beaches of the resort in the early morning, when Surya, or God of Sun, is believed to rise. Balinese Hindus believe that the blessings from Surya and Baruna, the God of Ocean, are required for a clean and fresh new beginning, which is why this is performed on the beach.

The spiritual journey begins with a Balinese Priest offering a devotion to both of the Gods, followed by a ‘Tepung Tawar’ ritual, cleansing of the guest’s hands, feet, face, and mouth three times each with the holy water, to symbolically cleanse the body, mind, and soul, and concluded by a prayer. Completing the journey, a piece of three-colored string called Benang Tridatu is tied around the guest’s wrist and worn until it falls off – symbolizing their quest for balance, harmony, and understanding. Guests will be accompanied by a “Sutri”, the priest’s assistant who will lead through entire steps of the ritual and provide consultation on Balinese culture.

Starts 7 a.m. – 7:30 a.m.

Price: IDR 1,900,000 excluding 21% government tax and service charge

Includes full Melukat ceremony, and morning snack.

Dress in a traditional Balinese sarong with a waist-tied sash
Participate in a private class at the resort’s Senses Gazebo to learn the basic steps in preparing Canang Sari, made of young coconut leaves (known as Busung) and colorful flowers
Make an offering to the local community by sending the completed Canang Sari to the resort’s temple or to a local village temple so that others may use it for their daily prayer

By taking part in this activity, you can learn and immerse yourself in this unique part of Balinese culture, while supporting and maintaining a harmonious balance with the local community through Tri Hita Karana, which encompasses the three most important aspects of life in Bali – God, humans, and nature.

Endangered Sea Turtle Preservation Program

Each year nesting sea turtles flock to the pristine beaches of the Ritz-Carlton, Bali Resort to lay their eggs. As part of the Community Footprints program, the resort partners with the Bali Sea Turtle Society to protect the hatching sea turtles. A fence is erected around the nest and as the turtles hatch they are transferred to a “temporary home” where they are guarded from predators until big enough to safely enter the sea. Guests are invited to join the turtle release and enjoy that wonderful moment as these delicate creatures splash their way into the nourishing waters of the Indian Ocean. Children lead the way and identify themselves as ambassadors of the environment. Back at the resort’s Ritz Kids Club, turtle-themed decorations generate excitement for the hatching season and teach young guests about the importance of preserving the local environment. We kindly request you to check the availability of this program, due to its seasonal nature.
