Big Name Brands Announce Hotel And Villa Projects In Bali

Share The Article

As officials urge investigations into spatial planning and tourism development in Bali, two major brands have announced their new spots on the island.

The hotel group Anantara has announced a new partnership to establish a resort in Seseh.

In Canggu, Hugo BOSS has orchestrated a villa takeover as part of their Spring/Summer Collection 2024 launch.

First to Seseh, where Anantara Hotel Group has teamed up with Ukrainian-founded Taryan Group to create the Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort.

The project, in its original form, garnered quite the kickback from Bali lovers who cited the initial development plans as an unnecessary eyesore on the emerging tourist resort of Seseh.

As has been the case for decades, tourism development is now moving further west along the southern edge of Bali. A Kuta eventually ran into Legian, which sprawled into Seminyak and, most recently, Canggu; Seseh is where investors are heading as neighboring Canggu’s development boom reaches a fever pitch. 

The project was initially called the Taryan Dragon Resort & Residence. Progress was halted on construction after complaints from local communities and Bali lovers who noted that the project would “jeopardize the unique charm and authenticity of this pristine beach and its surrounding area” as it was described in one petition against the project. 

Taryan Development Group shared statements to confirm that the plans revealed online were not final, despite the public perceiving them to be so.

The company issued a statement late last year to confirm “We will take into consideration the opinions and advice of Balinese architects, representatives of the authorities, and the local community for the final version of the project. Only after this stage will the project be officially presented.” Subsequently a land blessing was held and the first stone laid. 

It has now been confirmed that Taryan Dragon Resort & Residence will go ahead under the new branding of Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort.

This will mean that, once open, Anatara will have four properties in Bali including Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort and Avant Seminyak Bali Resort. The company is set to open the Anantara Ubud Bali Resort in this coming September. 

Speaking to the press about the new partnership, the founder and owner of Taryan Group, Artur Mkhitaryan, said, “We are honored to work with Minor Hotels in bringing Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort and Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Residences to Seseh Beach.”

“The combination of the distinctive architecture and design of our cocoon residences, elevated by the Anantara signature hospitality, will offer guests and owners extraordinary experiences that celebrate Bali’s natural beauty and culture.” 

Dillip Rajakarier, who is the CEO Minor Hotels and Group CEO, and CEO of Minor International the parent company of Anatara Hotels told reporters “Global travellers cannot get enough of Bali as arrivals grow well past pre-pandemic levels. Today’s travelers continue to look for new ways to appreciate Bali’s rich heritage and the island’s diverse experiences.”


The design of the hotel has been created by British architect John Dawes who has incorporated the mysticism of the Balinese Barong into the design.

The hotel will house 216 rooms and suites, ranging from 52 m sq to 20 m sq. There will be a beach lounge, three swimming pools, and three dining outlets including a Japanese restaurant and poolside bar.

In Canggu the luxury lifestyle brand Hugo BOSS have taken over a villa, now known as BOSS House Bali.

The luxurious 5 and 6-bedroom villa complex is said to embody the “the zenith of tropical indulgence” and as an “architectural marvel serves as the perfect sanctuary for both, moments of tranquillity and festivity, making it the perfect pick for your next group getaway.” 


Booking rates for the whole villa start at USD 2,000++ per night and can accommodate up to 10 guests.

The rate is inclusive of one group yoga session, one in-villa family buffet style dinner, return airport transfers, daily continental breakfast, and a welcome gift of BOSS merchandise.

A very beautiful complex. Just unreal.

Why does everyone curse at developers? They don't do anything bad and don't want to do it. They just build, do their work for people. The land is being sold by the Balinese! They don't even just sell it, but advertise it, offer it! They make favorable offers to developers who bought it, they have the right to build whatever they want! It is necessary to ask the owners of the land, and not scold the developers. This is my personal opinion.

it's good that comprehensive projects with international brands are being created, rather than chaotic construction like in Canggu.
