Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced Friday the opening of Andaz Bali, marking the entry of the brand into Indonesia. Offering “a contemporary take on the traditional Balinese village,” Andaz Bali is located in Sanur, a seaside village known for its old-world charm, beaches and sunrises. Sanur is located along Bali’s south-eastern coastline, just a 20-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Design and Guestrooms
Set in low-rise clusters, the guest accommodations and facilities are spread across a tropical landscape following the cardinal directions, which play a significant role in the Balinese Hindu religion. Andaz Bali offers a myriad of settings to suit different moods—from the tranquil Dukuh area, a secluded village within a village where banyan trees and Garden Villas stand side by side to the vibrant ocean-facing main pool deck located by the Fisherman’s Club beach bar.
Designed by the Bangkok-based Tierra Design and Spin Design Studio in Tokyo, Andaz Bali has 149 guestrooms, including 18 Garden Villas and four Beach Villas arranged in a series of courtyards. Starting at 710 square feet, the rooms, suites and villas are designed in contemporary Balinese style, using locally sourced materials such as bamboo, andesite stone, marble and teakwood. Each room has a private balcony overlooking the garden, ocean or lagoon. Steps from the beach, each of the 6,221-square-foot, two-bedroom Beach Villas offer an outdoor terrace, a spacious living room, a swimming pool and in-villa check-in.
Dining and Wellness
Andaz Bali offers culinary venues inspired by the lively dining culture in Indonesia. The resort’s signature restaurant, Fisherman’s Club, is a modern take on a Jimbaran seafood dining experience with a beach club ambience. Taking inspiration from the shophouses in Denpasar’s Chinatown, diners are welcome to sit wherever they like and order as they wish at Village Square, which comprises four intertwining restaurants on the ground floor with a private dining room and guestrooms on the upper floor. Expects Asian fare and Indonesian favorites from Wok Wok, meat fresh from the grill at Fire Fox, roasts from the eponymous Blue Oven and coffee and desserts from Deli & Bakery.
Connected via an aromatic herb and flower garden, Shankha Spa in the adjacent Hyatt Regency Bali offers treatments inspired by Balinese healing traditions using such indigenous ingredients as sea salt, pearl powder, coconut oil and spices. It also houses a fitness center, sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge pools, a yoga space, an adults-only pool and a small boutique and lounge. (Andaz Bali is home to three pools of its own: An infinity beachfront pool, a children’s pool and a pool that sits beneath a tree for those who prefer a more relaxing and reflective ambiance.)
Rina Mariani is the general manager of Andaz Bali.
