With the opening of The Apurva Kempinski Bali, the luxury chain opens another chapter; it is their second Kempinski property in Indonesia, and follows two other major openings in the past six months: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore and Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai.

Set for a February opening, in the Nusa Dua area of Bali, the resort boasts of 475 guestrooms and villas in a beachfront setting. Six restaurants, bars and lounges will allow guests to soak in the natural setting, with sweeping views and indoor/outdoor dining venues that celebrate regional flavours. An ocean-facing spa and fitness centre offers treatments inspired by traditional Balinese healing practices.

Other facilities include a 60-metre swimming pool and a separate kids’ pool, and an innovative family club that creates meaningful shared moments for families of all ages.

“Spectacular, sensational, curated and serene, The Apurva Kempinski Bali takes the form of a majestic open-air theatre, where centuries of Indonesian culture are distilled and brought to life,” says Michael Henssler, chief operating officer Asia, Kempinski Hotels and member of the management board.

“We are excited to welcome this outstanding resort to our Asian hotel portfolio: another masterpiece in the Kempinski constellation.” Adds general manager Vincent Guironnet,

“The Apurva Kempinski Bali is truly an embodiment of Indonesian culture and craftsmanship. Apurva means ‘unique and magnificent’ in Sanskrit; it’s a fitting title for a resort that’s like no other.”
