Anantara expands footprint in Bali
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has announced plans to open its third resort on the Indonesian island of Bali.
Anantara Ubud Bali Resort is scheduled to open in mid-2022 and is located in the hillside village of Payangan, a one-and-a-half-hour drive from Bali’s international airport and 35 minutes from the centre of Ubud by car.
The property is set to feature 85 guests rooms and one- and two-bedroom pool villas, as well as 15 residences starting at $650,000.
Several restaurants will offer sustainable local and international cuisine, featuring organic produce from the surrounding hills, nutritionally healthy menus and ‘Dining by Design’ experiences in and around the resort with a private chef.
Facilities will include an infinity swimming pool, a gym and fitness area, meeting spaces and a spa equipped with treatment rooms for both singles and couples, foot massage pods, a hair salon and visiting wellness practitioners offering a range of holistic Balinese treatments.
Dedicated kids’ and teens’ clubs will keep younger guests entertained, with a range of activities tailored to the interests of different age groups.
The property was designed by Malaysian interior design studio EDC International and inspired by local architecture and native materials.
Outside of the resort, guests can visit attractions such as the Hanging Gardens, the rice terraces, the Puri Saren Royal Palace and Bali’s famous Seminyak Beach, which is a day trip away.
“Ubud is one of the last remaining lush green areas of Bali which puts us in a prime position to develop a premium eco-friendly resort for the discerning luxury traveller,” said Dillip Rajakarier, chief executive of Anantara’s parent company, Minor Hotels.
“With breathtaking views of the island’s uplands right on the doorstep, from terraced rice fields, Hindu temples and cultural immersions at every turn, we look forward to welcoming our guests to the new Anantara Ubud in 2022.”
Anantara currently offers 40 properties worldwide, with a pipeline of future resorts across Asia, the Indian Ocean, Middle East, Africa and South America.
