The Apurva Kempinski Bali

It’s not a surprise to see The Apurva Kempinski Bali rounding up the biggest number of votes when it comes to the Best New Hotel category. From the moment the resort opened its doors to the public earlier this year, it has generated a continuously big buzz for all the right reasons.

The Apurva is massive and majestic – both in quality and quantity, and if you look closer, each exquisite detail in the resort is designed to represent the quintessential Indonesian sophistication, from the complex carvings telling the stories of Indonesian culture, to the hard-to-miss grandiose gebyok (intricate Javanese door or gate)-inspired installations in the lobby. Dubbing itself a majestic open theatre, the resort pays homage to Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage, featuring Balinese architectural elements and landscape, and Indonesian-inspired aesthetics.

The resort offers no less than 475 rooms, suites and villas – with sizes ranging from 65sqm to 1,379sqm. The highlight is the 176 Specialty Suites that come with a private plunge pool and access to the Cliff Lounge, infinity pool and hydro jet pool.

When it comes to service, The Apurva Kempinski Bali refuses to offer anything less than impeccable, bespoke service. Anything you need for a worry-free stay is available, from experiential concierge services, 24-hour in-room dining, laundry/dry cleaning service, car and limousine rental service, kids and family club and more. In addition, the resort’s Apurva Spa offers healing treatments inspired by ancient Javanese philosophy, featuring traditional wellness techniques and elements so you can just rest and relax.

The dining destinations on offer at The Apurva Kempinski Bali deserve recognition of their own. Selasar Deli offers a wide range of traditional light bites and Indonesian specialty drinks – staying true to the Indonesian heritage theme. The all-day dining Pala Restaurant & Rooftop Bar serves both local and international dining delights, in addition to live cooking stations. Izakaya by OKU is the exquisitely inspired Japanese dining restaurant with creative dishes. Reef Beach Club recently opened with its own 42m infinity swimming pool, and last but not least, the much-anticipated, soon-to-open Koral Restaurant will be the first aquarium dining experience in Bali.
