An Island pioneer in eco-tourism, Waka Hotels & Resorts now plans to refurbish, upgrade and add new projects to its existing portfolio of properties - low-rise Balinese-style developments in panoramic beachside locations.

The Waka Brand owners and PT K2 Consulting– a Hotel Management & Consultancy company established by veteran hotelier Kamal K. Kaul, have jointly incorporated PT WHM Indonesia, to manage all Waka Hotels & Resorts.

Guided by the vision of the patriarch of a Balinese business family in Denpasar, The Waka Group has been involved in pioneering the tourism on the island of Bali since the early 1970s.

“Our father always sought environmentally sensitive development opportunities on unique beachfront sites in Bali, to showcase the best of the island’s architecture and the natural beauty of its tropical landscape. This vision will remain the core strength of The Waka Group’s hospitality division, which is now being consolidated under Waka Hotels & Resorts. After repositioning the existing units in 2013, we are considering various proposals to expand beyond our home in Bali to other exotic locales in the Indonesian archipelago”, explained I Made Sutarjana, group managing director.

“Waka Hotels & Resorts will strive to achieve consistency in product design and service delivery amongst all its units. We will stay focused on developing low density eco-friendly hotels & resorts in great locations, in the mid price range, where our guests will enjoy invigorating and rejuvenating lifestyle vacations to balance their 24x7 wired hectic lives”, added Kamal K. Kaul, president & chief executive officer.

Waka Hotels & Resorts will be operating and managing hotels, resorts & cruises under two separate brands. “Waka” branded units will focus on the mid-to-higher price range market segment and “By WHM” will focus on mid-to-lower priced markets.

Waka Hotels & Resorts will manage all Resorts, Ocean Cruises and future Hotels and there are no plans to extend franchise arrangements that have existed previously.

Consolidating its operations during the year 2012, Waka Hotels & Resorts is now operating the following business entities:

Resort: WakaGangga, Gangga Beach, Tabanan, Bali
Now undergoing a complete renovation and redevelopment, WakaGangga will harness the beauty of the oceanfront site on a black sand surf beach surrounded by the thriving rice terraces. After 10 years operation, the resort was closed in May 2012 and it is scheduled to reopen in mid 2013.

Ocean Cruiser Waka Sailing Catamaran
The 30-seater twin hull sailing Catamaran operates round day trips between Bali and the nearby Nusa Lembongan Island, famous for snorkeling and scuba diving, every Monday, Wednesday & Saturday. During high season months of July, August, November & December, an additional departure is available on Thursdays.

Beach Club: Waka Beach Club, Tanjung Sanghyang, Nusa Lembongan, Bali
A new Waka Beach Club is in advanced stage of development set for opening in mid 2013. Located on Tanjung Sanghyang Bay, famous renowned for its soft white sand beach and blue ocean at Nusa Lembongan

The Waka Beach Club will offer ocean front recreation and dining in comfortable surroundings to all day visitors arriving from Bali on Waka Sailing Catamaran, private yachts and the residents on the island.

Land Cruise: Waka Land Cruise
Adventure day trips by legendary Land Rovers are operated daily on tiny country roads and tracks, through the Jatiluwih terraced rice fields designated as a heritage site by UNESCO and the nearby primary rainforest.

NusaBay, Lembongan Island, Bali – By WHM
Located on Lembongan Island’s Tanjung Sanghyang Bay, 12 kilometers east of Bali. The Resort is accessible from both Sanur beach and Benoa harbor by boat with the Waka Sailing Catamaran provides comfortable departures, three to four times per week from Benoa harbor in the morning and from Tanjung Sanghang Bay in the afternoon.

The owners of the following four Resorts operating in the past under the Waka name will be operating their respective Resorts independently and discontinue use of the Waka Brand effective April 1, 2013:
  • Waka Maya Resort
  • Waka Namya Resort
  • Waka Di Ume
  • Waka Shorea
The above resorts will be announcing their new branding in due course.
