Divine designs: Sensational new Kempinski property opens doors in Bali
Check out Apurva Kempinski Bali, latest, stunning addition to the Kempinski brand’s range of luxury hotels on the Island of the Gods
Kempinski Hotels will welcome a new addition to their collection of incredible hotels at the beginning of February 2019. The Apurva Kempinski Bali will welcome guests to its stunning beachfront setting on the Island of the Gods in the first quarter of the year, and is set to become one of the most prestigious properties on the island. We find out more.
Located in the glamourous neighbourhood of Nusa Dua on Bali, the Island of the Gods, the new Apurva Kempinski Bali will boast 475 guest rooms, suites and villas, all of which have been influenced by Indonesian culture and craftsmanship.
The design of the hotel takes its cues from Indonesia’s famous rice paddies, and is laid out over a series of cascading terraces that tumble down the hillside.
Drawing on Balinese temples, a set of 250 steps runs through the grounds of the hotel to provide a stage for nightly rituals, and a collection of waterways and pools reflect Bali’s natural landscapes and waterfalls.
Design by history
The overall concept of the hotel was imagined by award-winning architect Budiman Hendropurnomo of UK-based Denton Corker Marshall, while the interiors were executed by Rudi Dodo of Trivium Design Group.
The opulent interiors marry Indonesian traditions with contemporary culture to create a unique blend of old and new. The lobby has been designed in a pendopo style, with a tiered roof that draws the eye skyward.
Hand-carved wooden partitions are emblematic of Indonesian craftsmanship, and typical motifs and patterns found locally are scattered throughout the guest rooms, always reminding customers of where they are. The villas are equipped with private pools, outdoor lounge areas and landscaped gardens.
As you would expect from a hotel of this calibre and in this location, the Apurva Kempinski Bali boasts state of the art facilities and amenities, ensuring every guest can find something to meet their needs.
Local and international flavours are the order of the day at one of the hotel’s numerous restaurants. Sample some island delicacies at Bali’s first aquarium restaurant, indulge in some Japanese cuisine or grab something quick at the Reef Beach Club.
For those looking to relax and rejuvenate, the Apurva Spa employs traditional Indonesian and Japanese wisdom and techniques to give you a truly spiritual experience.
