    Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, a new beachfront resort that recently opened end of last year, is pleased to unveil the details of its contemporary and Balinese inspired design. The new resort, which has already transformed the Kuta experience, sits on a total area of 5.2 hectares of development and is located directly in the heart of Kuta beach, one of world’s most renowned surfing destinations. The resort offers an exclusive retreat, featuring spacious open-air terraces, lush gardens of local flowers, and an outdoor rooftop pool with unrivalled panoramic views of the ocean. Showcasing architecture by the distinguished firm of Enviro Tec, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is destined to become an architectural landmark while setting new standards for approachable luxury and extraordinary service in Bali.Constructed by the renowned architecture firm Enviro Tec, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is inspired by the design of Bali’s beautiful rice paddy fields. The resort’s open-air concept and elevated position on the island provide amazing ocean and beach views, presenting guests with breathtaking sights of Kuta. Enviro Tec has designed many signature projects over the past two decades, which have brought forth fresh and evocative ideas that test the canons of architectural representation. Additionally, the firm explores responsible design and construction for the creation of an optimal built environment, which is showcased at Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort with the use of recycled wood and water.

    The resort’s breathtaking interiors were primarily designed by FBEye, an interior design firm based in Singapore. Interior Design firm A2j also contributed to Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort’s design.

    When guests step into the hotel’s drop-off lobby, they are surrounded with the opulence of Balinese touches amidst the premium quality materials used to create a welcoming and warm environment. This beautiful space was designed by Hadiprana, a renowned firm out of Jakarta specializing in hospitality design. In the lobby, two sandstone columns and monochromatic bronze colors are elegantly featured and provide a relaxed ambiance among the timber decorative beam at the lobby’s drop-off ceiling. An exquisite bronze waterfall, which was designed by a local artist, provides an extraordinary backdrop with illuminated silver pieces.

    The inviting furniture in the resort’s lobby is custom designed by A2j and features warm tones and high-quality materials. Balinese artwork and detailed rustic timber panels are found throughout the lobby area, providing a picturesque backdrop of the island’s unique culture. The decorative wall-sconces are made from laser cut stainless steel with the traditional Balinese Geringsing pattern. Mounted on the ceiling is a beautifully decorated replica of a Jukung boat, a customary fishing boat used in Bali, highlighting the resort’s ideal proximity to the ocean. Decorative lattice timber with a unique Balinese pattern and dramatic low lighting is showcased along the wall partition in the lobby, while a large sphere lamp creates an inviting ambiance. The décor of the rooms reflects a modern yet classic design aesthetic.
