We have stayed at he Novotel Benoa, ask for room on beach-side of resort as they have all been renovated.

Yes there are a couple of convenience stores one just the right of novotel about 3 min walk, right next door are some shops and massage places, keep walking there are restaurants all in walking distance, yes they did have some local entertainment too. As for bars I really cant remember seeing any sorry.

5-7 mins away use free shuttle bus is Bali Collections http://bali-collection.com/ this place is great heaps of shops and restaurants with bands, bar's, spa's, coffee shops, pharmacy etc, to be honest this is where we went everyday around 20 places to eat.

Hope this helps, if you need anything else just ask....

Happy Travels :)

We have stayed at novatel they have great breakie but we found the restaurants very disappointing in the area much prefer sanur, they do have a good happy hour yummy cocktails not much in the way of bars in the area. Hope you gave a great trip,

A few of the restaurants have guitarist singer/duo playing most nights. The tree pub usually does. There's convenience stores close to the Novotel as well as coco mart supermarket down towards nusa dua. I've stayed twice at Novotel and really enjoyed it.
