Mövenpick unveils first hotel in Indonesia
Leading Swiss hospitality group Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts has officially opened its first hotel in Indonesia, in the form of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali.
Inspired by the traditional five elements of Balinese design, the resort features 297 comfortably appointed and tastefully furnished rooms and suites, each with private balconies, complimentary WiFi and a subtle Balinese sense of art, colour and style courtesy of the fabrics and materials utilised in the design.
The newly-built property is a three-minute walk from Jimbaran Bay in southern Bali, renowned for its four kilometre stretch of pristine beach and approximately 20 minutes from the island’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Central to the attractions of the new resort are its extensive family and culinary facilities and activities, tapping into the essence of the hospitality brand and leveraging the expansive space on which the property is located. It is also next to Bali’s newest lifestyle and dining destination, the Samasta Village shopping complex, with a range of shops, cafés, restaurants and entertainment.
Andrew Langdon, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ chief development officer and senior vice president Asia, said: “We are delighted to be opening our first property in Indonesia, a country central to our expansion plans in Southeast Asia, and where better to start than Bali.
“We are looking forward to showcasing our unique blend of upscale Swiss-inspired hospitality to guests from around the world.”
One of the highlights of the resort is a free-form swimming pool featuring an artificial beach area and lap pool, offering a total of 2,900 sq metres of pure water fun. A dedicated Meera (Ocean) Kid’s Club and a Teen Club with its own fun and activity pool caters specifically to families with daily supervised entertainment for young world travellers and dedicated youth menus.
Guests will also have access to the 24-hour gym, and a spa that highlights Balinese and Indonesian spa and beauty culture is due to open in April. There will also be a range of dining options.
The hotel represents another impressive milestone for the Swiss group, which continues to expand in Southeast Asia and aims to bring its portfolio to more than 30 operating hotels by 2020.
