    IN PICTURES: Raffles brand arrives in Bali

    Raffles Bali has opened, taking the brand’s global portfolio of luxury hotels up to 15 properties… 

    Following the grand reopening of the symbolic Raffles Singapore, the luxury hotel brand has opened its 15th property; Raffles Bali.

    With unparalleled views that stretch over the Indian Ocean and the famous Jimbaran Bay sunsets, Raffles Bali shelters just 32 private pool villas.

    From each of the exquisite Pool Villas – the largest and most private in Jimbaran – abundant sunlight streams in through the patio doors to gleam off rich hardwood floors. The soft batik tapestry hanging behind the king bed is a tribute to the skill of Bali’s local craftsmen, while rustic rattan furniture complements sweeping views of your private garden and the ocean beyond. All villas include indoor and outdoor showers, yoga mats and bespoke beach accessories, in addition to an indulgent soaking tub.

    Located at the resort’s highest point, Rumari restaurant is caressed by cooling breezes, which carry the tantalising scent of Balinese cooking from the kitchen, unveiling a culinary journey on a sunset terrace overlooking the ocean. Loloan Beach Bar and Grill, meanwhile, is located on the resort’s secluded beach, overlooking a 25-metre infinity pool. Enjoy a sumptuous seafood feast beneath the shade of the Balinese-style ceilings. As twilight falls, the atmosphere shifts from laid-back fun to casual elegance.

    The hotel also features the iconic Writers Bar and the adjoining Library, which is described by the brand as ‘a relaxing haven to savour classic or whimsically spiced cocktails, a glass of Champagne, or an after-dinner digestif’. Set in the heart of the resort, this intimate bar brings the Raffles heritage to Bali, with the bespoke Raffles Bali Sling, especially curated by our expert mixologist.

    “We are delighted to introduce our most iconic hotel brand to the beautiful island of Bali,” explained Michael Issenberg, Chairman & CEO Accor Asia Pacific. “The highly-anticipated Raffles Bali will be the brand’s second hotel in Indonesia, joining the stunning Raffles Jakarta, and is set to become a special retreat for guests to feel pampered, through meaningful experiences and service that is both gracious and intuitive.”

    With the opening of Raffles Bali, the luxury brand continues to set the standard for luxury hospitality with a carefully curated list of distinguished addresses in leading markets around the world.
