Imagine touching down at Ngurah Rai International Airport and being transported to a pristine white sand beach within 30 minutes? That’s the realised dream of luxury hotel management group GHM who will open The Chedi Sakala resort on 2.4 hectares of pristine coastline on the Nusa Dua peninsula this November.
Its third property to debut on Bali, The Chedi Sakala offers a heady mix of 247 richly appointed suites and 14 private one- and two-bedroom pool villas. Warm tropical woods, exotic natural textures, decorative pillows upholstered in raw silk and floor-to-ceiling glass windows define that chic tropical ambience for which Bali is famous. Designed to invite you to stay put and enjoy some much-deserved down time without having to run all over the island, your days are spent lounging at not one, but two stunning swimming pools and a wellness spa that renders you completely relaxed and impeccably balanced before heading back home.
Your nights are filled with new and old world wines, Bali-inspired cocktails, adventurous martinis and specialty mojitos available at the sultry Lobby Bar. Having already established itself as a lasting member of the island’s fine dining elite, Sakala specialises in contemporary European cuisine. Located beachfront, choose to share an intimate tete-a-tete within the refined indoor dining room or celebrate in style as Executive Chef Frederic Boulay’s innovative culinary delights are perfectly paired beneath the stars on Sakala’s open-air sky deck. Create your own party by reserving the The Club Lounge in its entirety, treating your friends to a sophisticated bash.
