Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Positives: Quiet beachfront resort. Prices at the restaurants were reasonable as were the prices at the spa. Staff was very polite. Golf course was fantastic. Negatives: You notice that the resort, though beautiful, is aging a little and there could be better upkeep.

The location is great but the hotel is beginning to show signs of lack of maintenance. Main restaurant had no air conditiioning for days. Choice of restaurants/bar/places to snack not fantastic. Had seven types of alcohol listed on menu but only two available for my entire 9 day stay. Wondering how my singapore sling was made on my first evening with no gin available. Overall looks grand but not up to what it is trying to supply. The island hopping excursion was without a tour guide assigned unlike the other hotels.
