Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach Opens in Indonesia with General Manager Guillaume Epinette at the Helm
July 20, 2017 1:49am
New Delhi, 20th July 2017 - Bali’s most lively and storied village is welcoming the world’s most neighborhood-centric brand in July 2017, with the opening of Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach. In a village that captures the ancient and modern zeitgeist of Bali in all its color, energy and lively tradition, curious travelers are the new savvy individualists.
As a destination, Bali has always delighted guests with its ability to embrace the modern and traditional with a stylish and youthful zest — and nowhere is this more apparent than in Seminyak, a neighborhood where the ocean breeze blends a fusion of village gamelan and modern house music. And indeed where in every direction, the visitor can trace the neighborhood’s story of a Cultural Journey — exploring its local communities and temples, where ceremonies and craft work retain the same daily rituals that connect you back to the heritage of the 15th century.
Bali is a popular leisure tourism destination for Indian travelers. According to Bali Tourism Promotion Board, in first half of 2016, Bali witnessed 55.47% growth in Indian tourist arrivals, as compared to same period in 2015. Also, India ranked sixth for inbound tourist arrivals in Bali, last year. Indonesia offer visa on arrival to Indian travelers, which has further added to the growth.
The new 289-room hotel gracing Seminyak’s Mesari Beach draws inspiration from the flavors, culture and character of its surrounding local neighborhood, the vibrant and lively Seminyak district — and Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach promises an authentic fusion of enchanting Balinese culture and contemporary creativity. Extending across 4.7 hectares of lush, landscaped grounds, including exotic plantings and beautiful vertical gardens, the resort fronts the southern stretch of Seminyak. Here, the best of modern and traditional Balinese design are seamlessly integrated, reflecting the surrounding Seminyak neighborhood, from its fashion boutiques and world-famous restaurants to its artisanal craftsmanship and architecture.
The 270 spacious rooms and suites are stylishly appointed with a striking mix of locally influenced design touches. Every guestroom is fitted with daybeds, plush bedding, spa-inspired bathrooms and state-of-the-art features. In addition, there are 19 villas with private outdoor swimming pools, whirlpools and marble bathrooms – all inspired by the Tri Hita Karana philosophy (one’s relationship with Gods, living beings and the earth), and showcasing a clever juxtaposition of contemporary design and ancient tradition. Each villa is planned like a Balinese house, consisting of three main areas: Nista Mandala, a space for residents to embrace the Gods; Madya Mandala, a space to be at one with nature; and Utama Mandala a space for interpersonal relations.
Guillaume Epinette, General Manager of Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach, says: “Seminyak is a melting pot, enriched with a diverse culture and lifestyle that merges all the wonderful things Bali is known for. Our inspiration has been to weave the flavors of Seminyak into our resort, not only with our design but throughout the whole experience. The result is a design-led property that reflects the changing tastes of today’s affluent travelers — who not only aspire to enjoy a relaxing escape, but also crave new inspiration. We’re certain that every fascinating detail on their journey of discovery through fashionable Seminyak neighborhood will deliver that.”
Welcoming guests at Hotel Indigo is the expansive lobby space, dubbed the Neighbourhood Gallery. A Balinese Subak-inspired wall structure, accents of verdant foliage, unique outdoor artworks by local artists and water fountains symbolize the tranquility of Seminyak and impart a soothing arrival experience. Signature geometric lines that decorate the resort at entrances and on canopies and walls are the creative interpretation of the traditional Balinese weaving textile, Tenun Songket.
There are seven lifestyle dining offerings at Hotel Indigo, with a destination to suit every moment and temptation of the day or night, all helmed by the resort’s Executive Chef Mads Wolff.
Makase is the hotel’s neighborhood café, contemporary yet casual with an open kitchen serving colorful local flavors for breakfast and dinner. Pottery Café is open all day with a finely curated collection of local specialty coffees, teas and chocolates, alongside freshly-made pastries. It is also set as one of a kind outlet with its own coffee roasting machine and Pottery-making workshop by local ceramic artisan. Organic artisan bar by day and speakeasy cocktail bar by night, the Tree Bar offers healthy and bespoke refreshments within a gorgeously verdant space. By the resort’s main pool is the Cave Pool Lounge, which serves cool drinks, scrumptious light bites and refreshing sweet treats such as rolled ice cream and fresh sugarcane juice. Salon Bali is the signature dining restaurant of Hotel Indigo, an intimate space with a rustic design aesthetic where refined Balinese cuisine featuring the island’s traditional delicacy – babi guling, or suckling pig – is served as part of an 8- or 12-course menu. Located beside the pristine white sand beach is SugarSand set to become Seminyak’s hottest new beachfront bar and restaurant in Q4 this year with space for more than 400 beach enthusiasts.
Leisure facilities for guests range from local cultural explorations to body and mind wellness. The resort’s Sava Spa offers treatments and traditional Balinese massages using Sava Spa’s locally-sourced natural spa products with active ingredients. The Spa also features 10 treatment rooms, a Relaxation Lounge, a Reflexology Lounge, a Nail Beauty Lounge and a 24-hour Health Club with wellness programs and state of the art fitness equipment such as yoga space, power stretching, weight-lifting, martial arts and TRX.
