Rumah Luwih Bali with its 74 rooms and suites will join the IHG system later this year, before fully converting to a Vignette Collection property in Q2 2024 following an extensive refurbishment.
Heritage and hospitality
Blending heritage and hospitality, the beachfront luxury colonial-style resort will be refreshed to offer an authentic, experiential, and considerate stay, as part of the growing Vignette Collection of one-of-a-kind properties.
Nestled amidst greenery with views of Mount Agung and the ocean, Rumah Luwih Bali is located within an hour’s drive of Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport. Facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, swimming pool, meeting rooms, fitness centre and spa.
Chris Anklin, senior director, development, South East Asia and Korea, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “IHG Hotels & Resorts is expanding quickly across Indonesia with 24 open hotels and 15 hotels in the pipeline. As we grow across wonderful destinations in Indonesia, Bali continues to be an important market and tourism hub for international and domestic travellers.
“We already have a strong luxury and lifestyle footprint in Bali with fantastic award-winning hotels across Six Senses, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Indigo. We are introducing more brands, and together with MMS Land, we will debut the Vignette Collection brand along Bali’s east coast. This hotel will offer a one-of-a-kind stay for travellers as it expands our portfolio of brands on the Island of the Gods.”
Andre Chandra Biantoro, CEO, MMS Land, added: “We look forward to introducing the first Vignette Collection property to open in Indonesia, and in Bali. Rumah Luwih is a heritage hotel acquired by MMS Land in April 2023, and now brings its distinct character and identity to Vignette Collection.
“We are confident that our partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts, with its luxury and lifestyle expertise and global enterprise system, will elevate and enhance the hotel stay experience, bringing new travellers to the resort, and growing our business.”
Rumah Luwih Bali joins Vignette Collection’s family of distinctive luxury and lifestyle hotels. Each property is unique yet connected by a shared vision to make positive change for people, place, and planet. Created for the next generation of luxury and lifestyle traveller, each hotel is distinguished in its character and design, with the thoughtful venturer in mind.
