At Aston Bali Resort & Spa, guests are treated to a different kind of resort experience. Because of the lack of entertainment around the Nusa Dua area, a wide variety of activities are offered within the resort grounds.
The resort houses its own spa, the Binwana Spa which is the perfect retreat for those looking to be pampered from head to toe. The spa offers a myriad of body and facial treatments that are carefully designed to relieve stress and improve overall well being. The spa is fashioned after a traditional Javanese palace but includes many bright colours to lighten up the mood. Private rooms are available but if you're not the shy type, we suggest the outdoor beds where you can enjoy the fresh air and the sunlight.
The main focus of all activities at Aston Bali is the swimming pool area. Activities such as aqua aerobics, water polo, diving lessons and many more are available at no extra charge. The trainers are all professionally trained and the activities have been designed in such a way that it is a fun learning experience for all. If you prefer to just bask in the sun to get that golden tan, there are many comfortable deck chairs around the pool and along the beach side. Games and quizzes are conducted sporadically where beer, cocktails and other prizes await the guests. Other water sport activities such as Jet Ski, banana boat, parasailing and such are offered along the beach side. Not many people go on holiday just to find themselves cooped up in a gym which probably explains the lack of activity at Aston's gym. In any case, the gym is open to all guests who are looking to pump some iron before going for a night out or lose some calories after a big meal. Speaking of which, a themed buffet is offered every night by the poolside but it comes with a price. Themes vary from European to Asian to good ol' Western but don't worry, it's just the food that goes with the theme and guests are not expected to show up in costumes.
The service staff at Aston Bali are friendly, but they do seem few and far between. The objective is not to smother the guests but to be attentive without being intrusive. It is somewhat refreshing to be able to scour the grounds without someone constantly breathing down your neck. Nonetheless, they are always willing to help and always wearing smiles as well.
Aston Bali Resort & Spa prides itself with its multitude of activities, many of which are not offered at other resorts. These activities bring the guests and the staff closer together and you'll find yourself making many friends along the way. Although the facilities might not be top of the line, they are still present and the activities offered are fun and interesting. It is these things that make you fall in love with Aston and the astonishing people who make it happen.
