Merusaka Nusa Dua

March, 2024, Bali Island is globally renowned for its rich in art and culture, exemplified notably through its distinctive architecture. Balinese architectural styles have formed organically from the island's way of life, deeply rooted in the philosophical and spiritual influences of Hinduism.

Merusaka, a name derived from Hinduism beliefs in Bali, symbolizes the first Nirvana, embodying a majestic and monumental dream destination. This resort authentically captures the very essence of Balinese culture, exuding its charm and charisma. The building of Merusaka Nusa Dua is designed to emulate the vibrant culture of Bali. Drawing inspiration from the captivating ambiance of Balinese villages and incorporating the daily life activities of Penglipuran village, the architecture harmoniously blends tradition with luxury. Comprising seven buildings with modern Balinese  architecture, each inspired by one of the Seven Balinese Goddesses: Rukmini, Saraswati, Lakshmi, Dewi Sri, Parwati, Uma, and Sita. These goddesses represent the soul of the resort, symbolizing beauty, prosperity, love, purity, and other divine qualities.

The lobby of Merusaka Nusa Dua is inspired by the Balinese culture and daily life, particularly the Balinese barn known as “Jineng”. The roof and pillars draw inspiration from the essential role of rice barns in Balinese society, reflecting their profound significance to the community.

The Balinese architecture of Merusaka Nusa Dua’s building also implements the Tri Hita Karana concept, encompassing three principles that contribute to prosperity and happiness: Parhyangan (maintaining harmony and balance between humans and God), Pawongan (ensuring harmony and balance in human interactions), and Palemahan (preserving harmony and balance between humans and the environment).
