After a tricky few years, tourism in Bali is thriving once again. Despite lockdown and international travel restrictions, construction on dozens of new hotels, resorts, and apartment complexes continued and will be ready for the return of travelers this year and into 2023.
Bali has long been the destination of choice for travelers seeking uncompromised luxury, relaxation, and world-class wellness experiences. As new hotels announce their launches, other much-loved hotels are announcing their re-opening following major refurbishments. Newly arrived AYANA Segara Bali is opening its doors for the first time on the 5th of November. It offers travelers a taste of traditional Bali with plenty of modern luxury.
The AYANA Segara Bali offers unrivaled views of Jimbaran Bay, spanning out over the pristine Indian Ocean. The whole resort has been curated by the internationally acclaimed designers WATG, who are the creative minds being AYANA hotels across Bali and even Komodo.
The hotel offers 205 rooms and suites. Providing guests with plenty of space to relax and unwind, rooms range from 58 to 65sqm with some suites offering double. All suites incorporate traditional Balinese craftsmanship and integrate into the surrounding landscape.
Celebrating the opening of the much-anticipated hotel, Michi Sonoda, Executive Assistant Manager, Sales and Marketing of AYANA Hospitality, said ‘AYANA Segara Bali will bring its charm to the curious-minded and young-at-heart travelers who are looking for a laidback luxury style of living, and inspire them to explore the unique experiences that AYANA Estate has to offer’.
Sonoda continued, ‘As a microcosm of the island experience, AYANA Estate is a perfect starting point to explore Bali and a must-visit destination in its own right. AYANA Estate and its experiences is a sanctuary of wellbeing where peace, harmony, and happiness are nurtured, for our guests to come home renewed and refreshed’.
For travelers looking for a touch of rest and recuperation, look no further than the newly expanded Escape Haven in Canggu and Soulshine Bali in Ubud. Escape Haven is a women-only retreat in trendy Canggu. The expansion has created stunning new facilities, including a saltwater lagoon, swim-up juice bar, infrared sauna, ice plunge pool, and eight-seat jacuzzi.
Founder of Escape Haven, Janine Hall, told reporters of her relief that the space is back in business. ‘Despite all of the odds being stacked up against me, I knew that this new wellness sanctuary would be a haven for women to come when the pandemic ended…It would be a space to relax, restore and recharge after facing so much stress, trauma, and transition over the past two years’.
Soulshine Bali, founded by U.S. musician Michael Franti and wife Sara Agah Franti, has also undergone an impressive expansion. The venue hosts all kinds of events, including yoga and pilates workshops, writing, photography, and corporate leadership events too. The new development now brings the facility list to include three swimming pools, a full-service wellness spa, and 33 rooms that include 17 private suites.
Opening in early 2023, the Kimpton Naranta Bali will bring ‘barefoot luxury with a contemporary and earthy twist to Nusa Dua’. The impressive 50-villa bootie resort is undergoing the final touches and is situated alongside the award-winning Bali National Gold Club.
According to the Kimpton Naranta Bali website, guests can ‘rest and renew at Samskara Wellness, where ancient Balinese rituals meet modern healing techniques. Stir the senses with distinctive dining options, from fusion grills to crafted cocktails’. The hotel is even pet-friendly, and guests are encouraged to bring their furry friends along too.
On the 28th of October, Four Points by Sheraton, Bali, reopened its doors after a stunning refurbishment. The hotel is ideally located in central Seminyak, just a stone’s throw from some of Bali’s leading entertainment venues, including ShiShi Nightclub and Izakaya Lounge, Ke De Ta, and Mano Beach House.
General Manager of Four Points By Sheraton, Bali, told reporters, ‘We are excited to return to the neighborhood after a long hiatus! With inspiring spaces and experiences combined with the island’s rich cultural heritage and offerings, the hotel is perfectly suited for both leisure and business travelers looking for a space to relax, unwind while staying connected’.
