The Apurva Kempinski Bali has been the talk of the town ever since it first opened its doors earlier this year, and for good reason. Driving through the elaborate main gate and stepping into the massive reception area, jaws will drop – and that’s expected.
“Majestic” is the first word that comes to mind upon seeing the grandeur of The Apurva, with its exquisite details representing quintessential Indonesian sophistication. Guests can marvel at the complex carvings that tell stories of Balinese culture as they walk to the lobby, and at the lobby, the grandiose gebyog (intricate Javanese door or gate) inspired installations will definitely take the breath away.
A brainchild of award-winning architect Budiman Hendropurnomo (Denton Corker Marshall) and esteemed interior designer Rudy Dodo (Trivium Design Group), the hotel aims to present itself as a majestic open-theatre and a tribute to Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage, boasting elements of Balinese architecture and landscape and Indonesian-inspired aesthetics.
Offering 475 rooms, suites and villas in total, ranging between 65sqm and 1,379sqm in size, small is definitely not in The Apurva’s vocabulary. That’s why we suggest you go big when experiencing the opulent hotel and opt for one of its 14 Specialty Suites that come with a private plunge pool and exquisite access to the Cliff Lounge and Cliff Lounge Pools. For an enhanced sense of exclusivity, keep an eye out for The Apurva’s villas – complete with private plunge pool, pool deck and lounge area, and Villa Lounge access, slated to open by the end of this year.
Ideal for a divine getaway, bespoke services are paramount at this hotel. Everything you need to ensure total relaxation is on offer, from experiential concierge services, 24-hour in-room dining, laundry/dry cleaning service, car and limousine rental service, kids and family club, Asha Curated Boutique and more.
The stellar facilities include Apurva Spa, where guests can rejuvenate and bask in the healing treatments inspired by the ancient Javanese philosophy Rupasampat Wahyabiantara, comprising traditional wellness techniques and elements, like lulur (body scrubs made from herbs and spices) and jamu (Indonesian health elixir). Topping it off are the ocean-view fitness centre and 60m swimming pool.
If you’re impressed now, wait until you hear about the magnificent dining destinations offered at The Apuva Kempinski Bali. Staying true to the Indonesian heritage theme, Selasar Deli offers a wide variety of traditional light bites and Indonesian specialty drinks like jamu and luwak coffee. Smack-dab in the middle of the hotel’s colossal courtyard is the all-day dining Pala Restaurant & Rooftop Bar, serving a wide range of local and international delicacies and boasting live-cooking stations, from breakfast till dinner.
The much-anticipated outlets include Koral Restaurant, offering Bali’s first aquarium dining experience; Izakaya by OKU, a fresh take on the award-winning Japanese restaurant OKU Jakarta; and Reef Beach Club, a place to chill by the beach, equipped with a 42m infinity swimming pool. All three are scheduled to open just in time for summer.
