Nusa Dua is more famous for its luxury resorts than for its night markets but there is a great night market in Nusa Dua and there are some other great places to go shopping too, which are “market-like” (at least for the Nusa Dua Peninsula).
So, let’s take a look at the best night markets and shopping spots in Nusa Dua and then let’s take a quick peek at some of the best night markets in Bali too.
7 Awesome Shopping Spots In Nusa Dua
Nusa Dua Night Market (Pasar Senggol Night Market)
The night market in Nusa Dua is not called Nusa Dua Night Market, it’s called Pasar Senggol Night Market and the big draw of this place is the food stalls that deliver local food at cheap prices using fresh farm produce.
If you want to try authentic local cuisine cooked using traditional kitchen utensils and farm supplies, this is the place to go.
We love mouth-watering Balinese cuisine at the best of times but the many food stalls here excel at creating food products that we just can’t resist.
There are regular cultural events held here too among the vendors selling food to hungry visitors.

This isn’t really a market, it’s a large-scale mall with a traditional local market finish to the exterior.
It’s in the Bali Tourism Development Complex, which is a local government venture designed to create a high-end tourism venue for the people in all the nearby 5-star resorts and luxury villas.
The Bali Collection isn’t about providing a shopping street with affordable prices, it’s all about cashing in on the cachet of being in Nusa Dua.
That’s not a bad thing, mind you, the jewellery, beachwear, clothes, coffee, fragrances, etc. on sale here are all a cut above the sort of thing you usually find in the night markets.
Hardy’s Nusa Dua Plaza (Tragia Shopping Market)
If you’re coming from the airport and in need of the basics for your new villa such as household tools, fresh fruits, cosmetics, clothes, etc. then you can do worse than visit Hardy’s Nusa Dua Plaza which is part of the larger Tragia Complex.
It’s considered to be a high-end supermarket by the locals, but if you shop for organic produce such as meat, seafood, veggies, etc. at home then you will be very pleased with the prices here.
You can also find a wide range of traditional brand names to supplement the local flavours.
It’s not a traditional market but if you’re enjoying one of the many Bali holiday packages aimed at this area of the nation – it’s very handy all the same.

Oakley Vault (O Vault) Nusa Dua
Not so much a market, as an Oakley-branded delight. It’s the biggest Oakley store anywhere in Bali and it’s the place to go for eyewear, sportswear and other Oakley gear.
One nice touch about this Oakley market is that they offer a prescription lens service, so you can get your sunnies with lenses that won’t leave you squinting to read.
It’s worth checking out the vault during their major sales too as you can save a small fortune on Oakley products at that time.
Where Is It? By Pass I Gusti Ngurah Rai No. 774, Jl. By Pass Ngurah Rai Nusa Dua, Benoa, Kec. Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Jalan Pantai Mengiat
This is Nusa Dua’s main shopping street and it teems with market-style stalls, art stores, bars and restaurants.
If you like the idea of a night market but don’t fancy food stalls, this could be your perfect place in Nusa Dua.
It’s a great place to pick up a sarong or a tropical print shirt for the folks back home. Just be warned, it’s Nusa Dua, this is quite a bit pricier than your usual Bali night markets.

Honestly, a department store full of luxury brands is the market that Nusa Dua deserves and has.
If you want a one-stop shop for high-end fashion, this is the place to go.
Let’s be fair about this, though, it’s not cheap. You shop at SOGO when you don’t have time to browse through all the stores in Seminyak.

The Blue Glue (Thaikila)
This incredible local beachwear store is a great place to find a nice swimsuit for the beaches of Nusa Dua.
They use local fabrics to maximum effect and the designs are on par with anything you can get elsewhere in the world.
Where Is It? 56XJ+CPF, Benoa, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Other Famous Markets And Night Markets In Bali
Kuta Art Market
This is like a neighbourhood bazaar and while the vendors can get a little aggressive in their sales techniques, it’s a great experience in Bali’s busiest beach town.

Sanur Night Market opens just after sundown and it’s teeming with great food stalls serving up delicious treats.

Does Nusa Dua Have Markets?
Sort of, it has a night market and several other places that serve as markets even if they are a bit posher and better put together than your typical local market selling fresh produce, batik clothes, and Balinese dishes.
Given that Nusa Dua is a must-visit destination in Bali, this shouldn’t be a major surprise. The area is all about high-end luxury and the kind of market you find on a Kuta sidewalk wouldn’t fit in too well here.
Are There Floating Markets In Bali?
Not yet, but the new Icon Bali Mall in Sanur will have a floating market called Jaje Bali. How good it is, we can’t tell you until the doors open sometime in April 2024.
Is It Worth It To Stay In Nusa Dua?
Yes! It’s one of the most popular parts of Bali and has a wonderful white sand beach that led to the Balinese government developing it as a key tourism hub for the island.
If you want to relax and enjoy the finer things in life, it doesn’t get much better than Nusa Dua.
How To Book A Holiday In Nusa Dua
We always recommend that you book a holiday in Bali through the lovely people at Bali Res Centre, a local specialist travel service focusing all their efforts on Bali.
You will get the benefit of their excellent local knowledge and some of the most competitive pricing for flights and accommodation around.
Final Thoughts On Nusa Dua Night Market And Nusa Dua Markets
Nusa Dua is a luxury destination and it’s unlikely that it will ever be home to all the best night markets in Bali but the local night market is very much worth a visit if you’re passing through Nusa Dua.
There are some excellent other shopping destinations in Nusa Dua too and once you’re ready to get out of the tourist enclave there are some other superb night markets in Bali for you to visit.
You could even come over to Canggu after you’ve shopped until you’ve dropped for a relaxing drink and a good meal at FINNS, the world’s best beach club.
