Bali is sometimes known as the Island of the Gods, which is why when Kempinski Hotels decided to set up shop on the island, it wanted a hotel that's worthy of Bali's nickname - and from the looks of the Apurva Kempinski Bali, it looks like they have done just that.
Opening on 1 February 2019, the Apurva Kempinski Bali consists of 475 well-appointed guestrooms, suites and villas, all situated in a quiet beachfront setting. Within its premises are six restaurants, bars and lounges, allowing guests to soak in the natural setting, complete with sweeping views of the sea and beyond. For those looking to relax and recharge, there is even an immersive ocean-facing spa and fitness centre for guests, complete with treatments inspired by traditional Balinese healing practices.
"Spectacular, sensational, curated and serene, The Apurva Kempinski Bali takes the form of a majestic open-air theatre, where centuries of Indonesian culture are distilled and brought to life," says Michael Henssler, COO Asia, Kempinski Hotels and member of the management board. "We are excited to welcome this outstanding resort to our Asian hotel portfolio: another masterpiece in the Kempinski constellation."
The Apurva Kempinski Bali is Kempinski's second property in Indonesia, and follows two other major openings in the past six months: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore and Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai.
Meetings-wise, The Apurva Kempinski Bali comes with 1,076sqm of space, including the Grand Ballroom and a collection of meeting rooms with ocean vistas. The Grand Ballroom, in particular, can accommodate 900 delegates for large-scale conferences. In terms of outdoor venues, there is a 2,200-sqm lawn that can be converted to hold cocktail receptions or weddings.
