Raffles Hotels & Resorts have signed an agreement with PT Asia Pasifik Properti, a subsidiary of the Rekso Group, to manage a luxury villa resort on Bali's Jimbaran Bay.
The 90 villas and 25 privately-owned residences are scheduled to open in 2010 and will be known as the Raffles Amartha. Set on a spacious 11 hectare site, the property will reportedly adopt the theme of a water palace inspired by Javanese-Hindu architectural styles. Set on a cliff at Bali's Dreamland Beach, the new resort will border an 18-hole golf course.
All villas will feature private plunge pools and sun deck providing ocean views. The Resort's plans also call for a 2,000 meter Raffles Amrita Spa - the signature Spa brand of Raffles Hotels & Resorts.
The resort is
located only 15 minutes away from Bali's international airport, Denpasar.
"Raffles Amartha, with its iconic location and unique concept, will be the preferred home-away-from-home for privileged travelers in Bali. Raffles Hotels & Resorts is renowned for peerless service, creative cuisine concepts and gracious hospitality and we are very pleased to be working with them on this project," commented Mr Sukowati Sosrodjojo, Chief Executive Officer, Rekso Group.
Mrs Diana Ee-Tan, Managing Director of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, added: "Bali is an island of incredible beauty, steeped in heritage, art and culture. Raffles has long wanted to have a resort here and we are thrilled that PT Asia Pasifik Properti has entrusted Raffles to operate this spectacular development. We are simply delighted to be able to bring the Raffles difference to this much sought after destination."
