“We are witnessing significant interest from families seeking the multitude of learning activities and entertainment on offer both within the resort and Nusa Dua complex,” said Courtyard by Marriott Bali general manager Jeff Tyler. “Throughout the property and within an easeful stroll away are well recognized surfing and water sport opportunities as well as golf and shopping but it’s the lesser known and quality cultural pursuits that our guests are now beginning to discover.”

Partnering with the Bali Nusa Dua Theatre and its signature production [Devdan – Treasure of the Archipelago]  – a cultural extravaganza of dance, music and high-wire acrobatics is performed just a short distance from the hotel the hotel provides to and from the show. As described by Stephen Lomax, Bali Nusa Dua Theatre general manager, “The show is really a marvel to watch, a tour de force of high-energy featuring a fusion of traditional Indonesian costume and dance, even ‘hip hop,’ choreographed with aerial acrobatics and hi-tech special effects.”

The Courtyard by Marriott Bali's other cultural partner, [Museum Pasifika]  a facility Tyler describes as one of the island’s best-kept secrets. “Here you have programs for all ages interested in learning more about traditional and contemporary art from Bali, Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.” Along with masterpieces from the renowned local artists like Raden Saleh and Affandi, the museum exhibits the work of expatriate artists including original paintings from Paul Gauguin, Theo Meier, Le Mayeur, Rudolf Bonnet and Arie Smith.

“The museum is a splendid inspiration for young guests with drawing competitions and sketching for kids, and along with the resort’s kid’s activities and special privileges together with our Kid’s Club, a family is kept well occupied,” said Tyler. Also aimed at entertain the younger set, The Courtyard by Marriott Kid’s Club is equipped with a ball house, movie room, and library as well as computers and game consoles. Cultural activities consist of Balinese art and crafts, and Balinese offering rituals, traditional Balinese dress up, and dancing courses.

Guests staying at Courtyard by Marriott Bali receive complimentary shuttle service between the hotel and the Bali Nusa Dua Theater and the Pasifika Museum. Hotel guest can also be treated to a complimentary 30-minute backstage tour of the Devdan theatrical production
