Marking the 40th year of Indonesia’s first Hyatt-branded hotel opened, the opening of Andaz Bali played the brand’s debut as the first Andaz resort in Asia. Andaz Bali offers a modern and immersive interpretation of the traditional Balinese village.
On the opening night, ‘Unveiling of Andaz Bali’ ceremony which was live streamed on last April 9, 2021, invited Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of Republic Indonesia, Sandiaga Uno, shared his optimism that the future of the tourism industry in Bali will rebound soon. As he shared, “Traveling in the new normal especially with travel restrictions and physical distancing in place will change traveling into a more sustainable conscious manner, in smaller groups, more private, offering nature and local village or heritage experiences to travelers.” This really suits Andaz Bali has to offer with a strategic location in the heart of Sanur, where traditional Balinese villages and its way of life are known for its old-world charm, picturesque beaches and spectacular sunrises.
Andaz Bali pays homage to Balinese art and craftsmanship, weaving together the island’s rich heritage and the contemporary influence from artists who have been visiting Sanur over the decades. “From the resort’s residentially inspired architecture and interior design to the food and music, Andaz Bali juxtaposes the calm and timeless spirit of Sanur with an energizing approach that inspires guests,” said Rina Mariani, General Manager of Andaz Bali.
On the same occasion, Jefri Darmadi, CEO of PT Jakarta Setiabudi International Tbk said, “We are delighted to add Andaz Bali to our portfolio of luxury and premium resorts which includes Grand Hyatt Bali and Hyatt Regency Bali, and to provide local guests and travelers with vibrant experiences and fresh ways to discover the island.”
Andaz Bali features 149 guest rooms including 18 Garden Villas and four Beach Villas arranged in a series of courtyards, which create a sense of discovery as guests move through the resort. Starting at 710 square feet (66 square meters), 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 boasts a private balcony overlooking the garden, ocean or lagoon.
Andaz Bali offers innovative 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 sophisticated 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. Whether it’s Asian fare and Indonesian favorites from Wok Wok, meat fresh from the grill at Fire Fox, roasts from the eponymous Blue Oven or coffee and desserts from Deli & Bakery, each dining option delivers unique flavors that bring the senses to life.
