Adding to its growing collection of properties around the world, Kempinski unveiled the latest addition to its line of five-star hotels with the opening of The Apurva Kempinski Bali in Q4 of 2018. This will also be Kempinski's first resort on the island, as well as the second in Indonesia. 

Michael Henssler, chief operating officer Asia, Kempinski Hotels and member of the management board, was more than delighted about the opening when he said, "We are excited to welcome The Apurva Kempinski Bali and add this iconic property to our hotel portfolio. From its unique architecture to artfully curated interior design, The Apurva Kempinski Bali will present itself as a majestic open-air theatre in which the guests will have the opportunity to experience the wonders of this unique island." 

And Henssler was not exaggerating about the "wonders of this unique island", either. The hotel is set amidst the dramatic cliffs and beaches of southern Bali and features 475 well-appointed guest rooms, suites and villas. Furthermore, there are five dining venues and even a Cigar & Shisha lounge. 

There are facilities built-in for the business crowd, too. The Apurva Kempinski Bali offers a 1,076 square metre grand ballroom - with a view of the ocean - and meeting rooms. For those interested in booking the venue for a wedding, there is even a beachfront wedding chapel. 

Perhaps the most interesting part about the new resort is how it pays tribute to Bali and Indonesian culture as a whole. "We are very excited about the upcoming opening of The Apurva Kempinski Bali. We have meticulously researched and worked with artisans to assemble the best of Indonesian craftsmanship, sharing with the traveller the richness of the destination's cultural heritage. We trust that Kempinski will strengthen our vision in delivering an elevated interpretation through personalised local experiences," said William Katuari, president director of Wings Group and the hotel's owning company.
