Prominent architect launches Soori Bali under new lifestyle brand
Under his new lifestyle brand Soori, architect Soo K. Chan has relaunched his beachfront resort, set between a beach and rice fields in Bali’s Tabanan Regency, as the ultimate wellbeing destination.
The relaunch of Soori Bali, which has just joined The Leading Hotels of the World, marks the first in a series of major developments to be rolled out under the Soori brand. Soori High Line, a residence opening in New York City’s West Chelsea, and Soori Niseko, a forthcoming ski resort in Japan, will underscore Soori’s philosophy of “living exceptionally well through holistic design”.
Each of Soori Bali’s 48 private pool villas and residences are in the midst of refreshment. Soori Bali will soon introduce a new Indonesian restaurant, moored in a traditional wooden Balinese house amid the resort’s rice fields. In late 2017, Soori Bali will expand its vast helipad lawn on the 10-bedroom Soori Estate totalling 5250 square metres, culminating in the unveiling of a cantilevered platform jutting over the Indian Ocean.
Soori Spa’s offerings are being expanded, in line with the resort’s vision of becoming Bali’s premier wellbeing destination. A team of onsite practitioners and visiting wellness experts will offer physical alignment and massage therapies, acupuncture, meditation, neurotherapy and longevity procedures among many other bespoke techniques, while special retreats will be hosted throughout the year by visiting international wellness experts.
The EarthCheck-certified resort minimises its carbon footprint through its design as well as a host of measures including reduced energy consumption, water conservation, waste management and use of organic products.
The hotel’s facilities include an infinity pool, gymnasium, library, spa, helipad, two restaurants, leisure concierge and butler service, and round-the-clock room service. The 10-room Soori Estate comes with its own infinity pool, gym, spa, kitchen, chauffeur-driven car and private butler.
