The prestigious Conde Nast Traveller "Hot List 2009" is out listing the 70 top new hotels operating around the world.

Two Indonesian hotels managed to make the "Hot List" for 2009:

Hotel Tugu Lombok - Ranked #25 in the list of the Hot 70 – this property, according to Conde Nast,: "seeks nothing less than to recreate the ancient Hindu kingdom of Majapahit which once ruled Lombok. An Indonesian-owned property, it combines cultural sensitivity with global standards of luxury. The lobby is a carved, 100-year-old wooden house, incorporating Malay, Chinese and colonial influences and stocked with funky antiques. Meals are taken in a soaring pavilion by the pool, presided over by fanciful sculptures of Hindu deities. The 18 spacious bungalows are positioned around lavish tropical gardens and shaded walkways, recreating the tranquil atmosphere of a secluded, colonial-era compound, with solid, hand-hewn furniture and oversized copper bathtubs in outdoor bathrooms. The seven Bhagavat Gita suites have separate bath-houses with bucket showers; in front of each, a private garden with a plunge pool opens onto the flawless, powdery-white Sire Beach. The Hening Swarga Spa is in a faithful replica of a 10th-century Hindu temple, and guests can also opt for massages in the forest next to a waterfall. Hotel Tugu is surrounded by traditional farming villages and virgin jungle; the only contemporary note is the 18-hole golf course.

St. Regis Bali Resort = Ranked #53 in the listing of the Hotel 70 – this property is described as : "the newest resort hotel in Bali, and probably the biggest. Beyond its impressive entrance (hundreds of palm trees culminating in an epic lobby designed by US landscape architect Bill Bensley), the hotel continues to deliver the goods. Set in nine hectares of prime beachfront property in Nusa Dua, the St Regis has 97 suites, 24 villas (some on the sand, others around lagoon-like pools) and the two enormous Strand Residences. There's 24-hour butler service and - nice touch, this - a deli where you can choose wine, cheese and any other goodies you want; thereafter your butler will stock up. Chef Oscar Perez oversees beachfront restaurant Kayuputi, where his degustation menu has gained him a reputation as the hottest chef in Bali; the sommelier Harald Wiesmann (who also writes poetry) knows his wines intimately, and his Bali Mary packs a serious punch. The Remède spa has 12 beautiful massage rooms with backlit, cut-out butterfly screens, and glass domes like silvery moons. There is more than a touch of Vegas in the scale and style of the St Regis (especially at night, when torches light the main pool as if in homage to Cecil B DeMille), but it still manages to feel intimate, especially when you are ensconced in your suite
