For the fifth consecutive year, Asian Golf Monthly has named Nirwana Bali Golf Club and Le Méridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort among Asia's Best.
This year a panel of 12 regional golf experts named Le Méridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort as the "Best Golf Resort in Asia" and Nirwana Bali Golf Club as "Best Course in Asia."
"We are delighted to have received such prestigious awards and recognition. It is a wonderful testament that the golfing community see our resort as a jewel in Asia," said Dietmar Kielnhofer, General Manager, Le Méridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort.
The 18-hole Greg Norman designed golf course is among Asia's most visually spectacular courses. The 72-par course features holes carved through terraced rice paddies and winding creeks. The site’s natural features are preserved while creating some of golf's most dramatic holes and breathtaking vistas along the shoreline of the Indian Ocean and, in the distance, Bali's fabled Pura Tanah Lot.
The courses 7th hole is particularly challenging, requiring the golfer to hit a middle iron from the cliff side tee across an ocean inlet, to a well-guarded green.
A word to the wise: bring extra balls when you play this hole!
