Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas is expanding its presence in Indonesia with the launch of Anantara Ubud Bali Resort in mid-2022. This is the brand’s third resort on the Indonesian island of Bali.

The resort is located in the traditional hillside village of Payangan, a 1.5-hour drive from Bali’s international airport and 35 minutes from the centre of Ubud by car.

Anantara Ubud Bali Resort features 85 well-appointed guest rooms and one and two-bedroom pool villas, inspired by the culture and traditions of the locale.

The resort’s design, by EDC International Sdn. Bhd is inspired by the “study of local vernacular architecture that is influenced by Hindu traditions and juxtaposed with Javanese elements and interpreted into a contemporary silhouette.”

Guests looking to stay longer can choose from 15 Anantara residences with a starting price of US$ 650,000++.

Guests and residents can choose from several restaurants serving sustainable local and international cuisine. The farm-to-table concept at the resort will feature locally sourced organic produce from the surrounding hills. Healthy menus will also be on offer and romantic ‘Dining by Design’ experiences in and around the resort with a private chef can also be arranged.

Recreational amenities include an infinity swimming pool, a gym and a fitness facility. State-of-the-art event spaces are also available to host meetings and social gatherings in a picturesque location.

The spa is equipped with single and couple’s treatment rooms, foot massage pods, and a hair salon. Visiting wellness practitioners will offer a range of holistic Balinese treatments. A dedicated kids’ and teens’ club will offer a range of activities for the younger guests.

Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, the parent company of Anantara said:

“Ubud is one of the last remaining lush green areas of Bali which puts us in a prime position to develop a premium eco-friendly resort for the discerning luxury traveller.

“With breathtaking views of the island’s uplands right on the doorstep, from terraced rice fields, Hindu temples, and cultural immersions at every turn, we look forward to welcoming our guests to the new Anantara Ubud in 2022.”
