    There are quite a few trip reports around here and in BoardingArea that should come in handy.

    Have you considered the Aman properties?

    Seminyak has local hang-out options and plenty of beach. Nusa Dua is more a high-end resort area (read: less local life). Neither of them could be considered close to a "city"- the only real "cities" are Denpasar and Singaraja. The landscape is dotted with lots of towns blending into farmed areas

    I guess than id rather stay in seminyak.not really looking for "city life" just more option than a resort buffet:)and of course the possibilities to walk around and grab a late afternoon drink...

    Nusa Dua is fondly (not) known as the tourist ghetto. Beautiful, antiseptic, hight end hotels, absurdly overpriced and nothing like the more natural parts of Bali (like Ubud).

    I'm currently in Bali. We're spending our first 4 in Sanur, 3 in Ubud and last 2 back in Sanur.
    Seminyak sounds great if you're looking for very pricey resorts.
