The first Andaz in Indonesia pays homage to the modern comforts of a Balinese village.
There are only a handful of places in Bali where one can still feel an authentic Balinese vibe, and Sanur is one of them. A seaside town known for its sunrises and beaches, Sanur attracts individuals who celebrate their personal style. The latest five-star addition to Sanur is Andaz Bali, a hotel that will highlight the charms of Sanur and Bali through its design, architecture and guest experiences. Set to open in April 2021, the hotel is among the few Andaz resorts in the world, and the first resort in Asia.
Andaz means personal style in Hindi and each of the 23 Andaz properties around the world carries its own signature inspired by its neighbourhood, from locally inspired scents, unique dishes and drinks to eclectic art displays.
Andaz Bali does a modern take on the village of Sanur, thoughtfully weaving the traditional elements with contemporary touches. The rooms, suites and villas are spread in low-rise clusters with a hidden courtyard and ponds. A village square doubles as a communal space where guests can mingle with local creative thinkers. There are four dynamic dining venues to choose from, where the chefs will be cooking classic favourites while adding a new twist.
In keeping with the traditional Balinese village feel, architect Martin Palleros worked with materials naturally used and found in the area such as red bricks and woven bamboo. The Bangkok-based architect spent a decade understanding and researching Balinese architecture and culture, spending time in noted temples and villages around Bali, from Batuan and Batubulan to Penglipuran.
For the interior design company, SPIN Design Tokyo, the abundance of natural materials in Indonesia has inspired the use of local materials in unique ways. Artworks are carefully selected to represent the old and new of Bali, from a traditional Men Brayut statue (a character from Balinese folklore) to a modern-style mirror representing tamiang (a Balinese symbol of protection).
