Overlooking the captivating coastline of Nusa Dua, the hotel is an oasis of relaxed stylishness and tropical good taste. Between the three properties there are nine restaurants and bars, the Mulia Spa, an oceanfront Oasis Pool, fitness and tennis center and a business center.
The unique design of Mulia has made it one of the most sought-after luxury resorts in Bali.

The Mulia Resort has five suite categories while The Mulia offers three and the villas come in five options.
The Mulia’s suites are designated Marquess, Earl or Baron and feature a number of posh perks, starting with plush bedding, views of either the Indian Ocean or a tropical garden, and 24-hour butler service.
