Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 1 April 2015

New World has been appointed by Jakarta -based PT. Mugie Bali Indah to manage a new resort in Bali.

Scheduled to open in 2017 as the first New World Hotels & Resorts property in Indonesia, the New World Grand Bali Resort will be set on 10.8 hectares in part of the Pecatu Indah Resort development located on the southern Bukit Peninsula.

Only 15 minutes' drive from Uluwatu Temple and 30 minutes' drive from Ngurah Rai Badung International Airport, the resort will be built following the site's natural slope which is 156 metres above sea level at its highest point. The resort's cascading topography will afford ocean views for all accommodations.

WOW Design Studio, Belt Collins International landscape architects and Hirsch Bedner Associates interior designers, will create the lavish public spaces, exteriors and accommodations.

Of the 328 guestrooms, the suites and grand suites will have individual decks and plunge pools. Selected guestrooms, all suites and 85 one to four-bedroom villa residences will be available for purchase. Those in residences will have access to an exclusive club and pool.

Taking inspiration from a Balinese mountaintop retreat, tiered gardens will step down gently in the manner of Bali's iconic rice paddy terraces. The resort's landscape will be cloaked in forest flora, interspersed with meandering pathways, and indigenous building materials will include an abundance of natural lava rock. The sound of water will provide the backdrop throughout the property with waterfalls, pools and streams around every corner.

For those ready for more lively aquatic fun, in addition to the main swimming pool with its 1,580-square-metre viewing deck overlooking the Bali Strait and coastline, and "dancing" fountain concept, the adjacent waterpark will offer a "Lazy River", sandy beach, kids pool, water slides, forest-themed restaurant and stage performances.

Other recreational options will include a spa, fitness center, the New Kuta Golf Course in the Pecatu Indah compound, and access to a nearby secluded, cliff-encircled beach.

The resort will also feature four restaurants and a rooftop destination lounge. Meeting space will include a ballroom of 1,100 square metres and four meeting rooms, as well as a wedding chapel.

"We are very grateful to Mugie Bali Indah for giving us this opportunity to enter the 'Island of the Gods,' home to some of the most exotic and acclaimed resorts in the world," said Sonia Cheng , chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group, New World Hotels & Resorts' parent company. "With their support, we aim for New World Grand Bali Resort to join the list of unforgettable experiences in this unique vacation destination."
