Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is planning to open a new hotel and resort complex on the Indonesian island in 2016. With 97 villas and 24 spacious guest rooms, the Mandarin Oriental Bali promises to be a haven for those looking to get away from it all.
Located on the Bukit Peninsula at the southern end of Bali, the resort hotel will offer an extraordinary view on the Indian Ocean and direct access to an isolated and protected beach with white sands. Each of the 97 villas will have a private pool of between 10 and 15 meters, while the 24 rooms have a view over the ocean.
Mandarin Oriental has entrusted the interior architecture of its new resort hotel to Jean-Michel Gathy of the firm Denniston International. The style is expected to combine contemporary trends with traditional Balinese elements and touches of East Asian inspiration as a nod to the hotel group’s heritage.
The Mandarin Oriental Bali will include three dining establishments, including a flagship cliff-top restaurant, another restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a more informal beachside bar and grill. Couples will even be able to celebrate their wedding in one of the resort’s numerous reception halls.
An all-inclusive Spa at Mandarin Oriental will offer the most comprehensive range of wellness, beauty and massage treatments available in the region. Spa goers will enjoy Mandarin Oriental’s award winning signature programmes as well as specifically developed treatments inspired by Balinese traditions and customs. The 1,725 square metre Spa will feature eight spacious and restful treatment rooms. Further facilities include significant heat and water therapies and a 100 metre outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a number of private lifestyle cabanas, all equipped with spa and entertainment amenities, for the ultimate in poolside relaxation. An extensive fitness centre completes the well-being options. In terms of activities and entertainment, guests can drop their children off for a day of fun at the Kids Center and enjoy a game of golf on the 18-hole course, or relax with a book from the extensive library.
Offering a rich cultural history, miles of sandy beaches and a magnificent landscape, Bali, also known as the ‘Island of the Gods’, is a popular leisure destination. With a spectacular coastline on the Indian Ocean, visitors can enjoy a stunning combination of picturesque rice terraces, dramatic volcanic skylines and tropical forests together with temples, palaces and colourful festivals.
