Raffles Hotels & Resorts has announced its 15th Raffles Hotel in the world, with the launch of the lavish Raffles Bali, which offers unparalleled views over the Indian Ocean and the famous Jimbaran Bay sunsets.
With just 32 private pool villas, Raffles Bali targets those “looking for a romantic getaway or an intimate oasis of emotional well-being” according to general manager Katya Herting in a statement.
Situated in Bali’s famous tourist area of Jimbaran Bay, the property boasts a “well-being butler” as part of its service, as well as indoor and outdoor showers and yoga mats in all villas, a restaurant at the resort’s highest point that comes with a sunset terrace overlooking the ocean, a beach bar near a 25-meter infinity pool, the brand’s famous Writers Bar and Library and two spa suites.
Raffles Bali is offering private limousine transfer from Ngurah Rai International Airport to the luxurious resort as part of its perks.
“The highly-anticipated Raffles Bali will be the brand’s second hotel in Indonesia, joining the stunning Raffles Jakarta, and is set to become a special retreat for guests to feel pampered, through meaningful experiences and service that is both gracious and intuitive,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and CEO of Accor Asia Pacific.
Raffles Bali is also said to be the first Raffles to launch the brand’s new well-being program dubbed Emotional Wellbeing by Raffles, which is based on “the understanding that true luxury is not about what you own, but what you feel.”
For its soft-opening, the hotel is offering a two-night stay at its private pool villa, including return limousine transfer, daily a la carte breakfast and activities, at a starting price of US$2,660
Bali itself recently made news after announcing plans to welcome foreign visitors starting Sept. 11 following months of international travel restrictions because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Meanwhile, local tourists will reportedly be able to visit the island’s popular vacation spots starting July 9.
