The best nightlife experiences in Nusa Dua are more refined and cultured than what you'd encounter in other parts of Bali. Its after-dark scene is similar to Ubud, where you can enjoy traditional Balinese performances at different venues throughout ITDC Nusa Dua – a touristy complex of beachfront resorts and hotels.

    If you prefer the usual bar offerings in the evening, most of Nusa Dua’s resorts and hotels have onsite lounges and all-day restaurants. You can enjoy excellent cocktails and beer, as well as good company in cosy surroundings. For a laidback evening in and around Bali's exclusive tourism enclave, check out our guide on what to do at night in Nusa Dua.

    Devdan Show is a 90-minute theatre performance with stunning visuals, world-class aerial acrobatics and mind-blowing dance choreography. With a storyline that lets you enjoy a fantastical tour of the Indonesian Archipelago, the performance focuses on Indonesia's cultural diversity with island-hopping episodes, from Bali to Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Papua. 

    After the show ends, you can have your photos taken with the cast and crew, all in full costumes outside the auditorium. Devdan Show takes place several times a week at the Bali Nusa Dua Theatre, which is adjacent to The Bay complex of beachfront restaurants.
