both Nusa Dua and Jimbaran are in proximity to the Bukit. Either would be good spots. Nusa Dua will have better winds in November if you want to just walk outside the hotel and surf. PLus you can hop in a cab up to Keramas easier from Nusa.
Nirwana is probably 1+ hours north up the west side, near Canguu and Berawa. Both are good waves but in Nov it it might be onshore up there.

^ +1...FUN WAVES!!!
Nov is rainy season so they get good winds on the east side also, including Sanur, Nusa Dua, and Keramas. I didn't surf these spots but saw Sanur on the ferry ride to an island offshore. Sanur was big like 8-10 foot faces and peeling down the reef, but onshore. Nusa Dua gets HUGE, but you have to take a boat out there to the reef. It's no joke there. Keramas is a good fun wave from 3-6 feet. Keramas is mellow too, not built up like Kuta and Jimbaran.
^ Much more appealing than most spots on the West side of Bali that time of year! However you'd be better of staying close to the east side... Bali not big but sooooo many people hard to get anywhere...if your checking spots ...start early... lots of tide dependent spots... best to just stay close to the action for Nov.= eastside
Canguu and Berawa. Both are good waves but in Nov it it might be onshore up there.Canguu and Berawa. Both are good waves but in Nov it it might be onshore up there.

Thanks everyone for the input. it sounds like Nusa Dua is the place to be, at least to begin. I'll start researching some of these spots.

out of the three on this map, the grand bali is the one on the bottom and seems to be the better option as far as availability and location. However there is also one available in Sanur. I'm sure they would all be fine, but out of these three anything that would make you jump at one area over another? Thanks.

Bali - recommendations
Sandbar18 and I are deferring our trip to Indo (planned March) til Thanksgiving of '13. We are lucky enough to have a week of timeshare to use over there (plus another week we are going to roam around after the week in Bali), and there are a few resorts open during the week we want to go in November. Any recommendations on which resort/area? staying near Kuta or Jimbaran? Any difference in the vibe north or south of the airport?
Here are the options if you've ever been to one let me know you're experience:
Nirwana Bali, Royal Bali Beach Club at Jimbaran Bay, The Grand Bali - Nusa Dua, Bali Tropical Resort and Spa
Also does anyone have experience with Bali in November?
