from Hawaii, The Conrad Bali Resort & Spa in
Indonesia Set to Open
BALI, INDONESIA (February 19, 2004) – Conrad Hotels, the award-winning luxury collection within the Hilton Family of Hotels, will add another luxury property with the opening of the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa in Indonesia on March 8, 2004. 

The contemporary 313-room luxury resort is located on the southern coast of the island of Bali, conveniently situated only 10 km (6 ¼ miles) from the Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar) and next to the Nusa Dua resort area. Secluded, on 6.8 hectares of tropical gardens with lagoons and cascading waterfalls, the resort is complete with a 300-meter beach.

Conrad Bali Resort & Spa is built as a low-rise, E-shaped structure, with three wings of guestrooms and suites connected to a primary public area. This unique design allows each guestroom to have an ocean view. The resort’s guestrooms and public areas, with their inviting ambiance, were designed by architects Wimberly, Allison, Tong & Goo from Hawaii.

For more intimate gatherings, there is a range of small meeting and function rooms.

Culinary Delights

Some of the world’s most creative cuisine is on offer at the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa, with an exciting choice of restaurants and bars all meticulously planned and destined to make a big impact with residents of Bali and hotel guests alike. Designs, music and our new approach to service have all been subtly integrated to create unique dining concepts under the guidance of Executive Chef Gary Rosen.

  • Su Ku: for contemporary island cuisine in an elegant al fresco setting and with service around the clock; 
  • 8 Degrees South: beach dining, ‘latitude and attitude,’ open from midday until dinner; 
  • Spice: an upscale offering of Asian cuisine, open for dinner beginning July 2004
  • and two bars – Azure: a sit up pool bar, and East: a Lobby Lounge with nightly entertainment, where a spectacular view is served with every cocktail. 
Creative and Contemporary Atmosphere

"Today’s style-conscious and discriminating travelers seek more than just a great room; they demand a complete lifestyle experience," says Michael J. Burchett, the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa’s General Manager, who has had many years of experience in Indonesia, including Bali & Jakarta "The meticulous preparations for the hotel opening, from staff selection to the choice of the resort’s type of uniforms, pillow menu and sleep amenities, and exceptional interior design, have created a unique atmosphere and attitude within the resort. Our service ethic, new contemporary style rooms, new music environment, cuisine concepts, magnificent spa and relaxation treatments and application of the latest technology are exceptional and there really is nothing like the Conrad – here in Bali or anywhere in the world!"
