Following its announcement last October that it will begin managing three new properties in Thailand between Q4 2016 and Q42017, Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts is continuing its Southeast Asia expansion with the opening of its debut property in Indonesia.
Located on the island of Bali minutes from its southern Jimbaran Bay, the new Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali is a 297-guestroom property approximately 20 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Each of the hotel’s rooms and suites offer a private balcony and feature Balinese-inspired artworks and fabrics. Complimentary wifi is also available to all guests.
“We are delighted to be opening our first property in Indonesia, a country central to our expansion plans in Southeast Asia, and where better to start than Bali,” said the group’s chief development office and senior vice president Asia, Andrew Langdon.
Indeed, the hotel is located adjacent to one of Bali’s most recent dining and retail complexes, the Samasta Village, which features shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment options. The hotel itself, meanwhile, includes five culinary options ranging from Peruvian-Japanese rooftop restaurant Above Eleven Bali – set to open in March – to coffee and artisanal Swiss ice cream and chocolate at the Mövenpick Café.
On the leisure side, the resort has a total of 2,900 sqm of water-based options, including a free-form swimming pool with an artificial beach and lap pool. A 24-hour gym and a spa – the latter due to open in April and offering Balinese and Indonesian spa treatments – also make up the leisure offerings.
Mövenpick is marking the opening by offering a discounted opening offer until June 25 for bookings made on its website. Prices per night for two people in deluxe accommodation with daily breakfast start at IDR1.88 million (US$140.7).
