Kempinski Hotels will open its second property in Indonesia, The Apurva Kempinski Bali, on 1 February 2019. The brand-new property will debut in the upmarket Nusa Dua area of Bali with 475 well-appointed guestrooms, suites and discreet villas – 60% of which have plunge pools – in a quiet beachfront setting. Gourmands will be impressed by six restaurants, bars and lounges. An ocean-facing spa and fitness centre offers treatments inspired by traditional Balinese healing practices to promote balance and wellbeing.
Its addition to the Kempinski stable follows two other major openings in the past six months: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore and Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai.
The Apurva Kempinski Bali cascades down the hillside like one of Bali’s iconic rice paddies, emerging from the clifftops and gradually making its way down to the Indian Ocean. Tumbling waterfalls emerge from the landscape, flanking the resort’s spectacular Grand Staircase. The 250-step walkway, inspired by Bali’s sacred Pura Besakih water temple, runs through the centre of the resort and provides a stage for nightly rituals.
Interior designer Rudi Dodo of Trivium Design Group has imagined opulent interior spaces, created by Indonesia’s finest craftsmen and artisans, which pay tribute to the country’s design heritage while adding modern touches that anchor The Apurva in the present day.
At the crown of the resort, the pendopo-style lobby is an open, welcoming space with a soaring tiered roof. The intricate Javanese handcarved gebyok partitions are symbolic of Indonesia’s prosperous Majapahit kingdom. In the guestrooms, rich, exotic woods, local fabrics and typical Indonesian motifs create an atmosphere of understated sophistication, while views of the ocean and surrounding landscape tell their own story through wide panoramic windows.
Starting from 65 square metres, accommodation at The Apurva Kempinski Bali is generously proportioned and guarantees exceptional views. At the upper end, a selection of 43 One-, Two- and Three-Bedroom Exclusive Villas offer up to 1,379 square metres of space with private pools and lounge areas, tropical gardens with outdoor showers and access to the exclusive Villa Lounge.
Spread across the resort, 162 exclusive clifftop and oceanfront Junior Suites and 14 Specialist Suites have private plunge pools, and guests benefit from access to the Cliff Lounge and its panoramic pools. The remaining 256 Grand Deluxe Rooms, ranging from 65–80 square metres, are beautifully appointed, featuring traditional Indonesian patterns and spectacular views.
