SINGAPORE - Leading global hospitality company Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the signing of an LXR Hotels & Resorts property in Bali, Indonesia with PT Surya Semesta Internusa Tbk. Set to open as the first LXR-branded resort in South East Asia in late 2022, the 72 all-villa resort will join a collection of unique, independent luxury properties around the world, which includes the recently opened ROKU KYOTO, LXR Hotels & Resorts in Japan.
“We are thrilled to partner with PT Surya Semesta Internusa Tbk to introduce LXR’s unique approach to luxury hospitality in Bali, one of the world’s most beloved travel destinations,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, development, Asia and Australasia, Hilton. “This resort marks our fourth resort on the island and is a signal of our commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio with the right partners, in the right destinations, across the region. The signing also bears testament to the relevance of the brand ethos that speaks to the evolved needs of luxury travelers.”
“We are delighted to debut the first LXR resort in partnership with Hilton in this world-renowned leisure destination in South East Asia. The ability to retain the resort’s unique identity while benefitting from Hilton’s rich experience in delivering exceptional hospitality and strong brand values will allow us to redefine the luxury travel experience in one of Bali’s most sought-after destinations,” said Johannes Suriadjaja, chairman, PT Surya Semesta Internusa Tbk.
Perched 70 meters above the sea along Uluwatu’s magnificent limestone cliffs, the resort is a 45-minute drive away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in the southern tip of Bali. Pura Uluwatu, one of the island’s most revered holy sites dating back to the 11th century, is a short drive away, whilst Uluwatu Temple sits in close proximity. In addition, the pristine Melasti beach which sits beneath the resort and is renowned as one of the major sites for the Balinese Hindu purification ceremony of Melasti, has recently gained popularity as a key destination on the island. Featuring a picturesque landscape with an all-rounded leisure hub comprising beach clubs, a retail area and an amphitheater, the beach will offer guests an all-encompassing leisure experience within walking distance of the resort.
“The Uluwatu region in Bali offers an alluring mix of clifftop views, local heritage and authentic culture which – coupled with LXR’s commitment to providing personalized service and immersive experiences – are the perfect blend to create profound travel experiences for independent and discerning travellers. When it opens, I am confident it will be a distinctive, best-in-class luxury resort that is set apart by its interpretation of the island’s unique culture and the immersive experiences our team members will deliver," said Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, luxury & lifestyle, Asia Pacific, Hilton.
Nestled amidst the verdant landscape, the resort will feature 72 luxurious suites and villas that offer unobstructed panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. The resort will offer five dining concepts, including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a beach club and two bars. A clifftop chapel will set the stage for memorable weddings against Bali’s iconic sunsets, and other facilities include inspiring event spaces, a fitness centre, spa and kids club.
The resort will lean into the core values of the LXR brand, which focus on providing unique, immersive experiences defined by the local cultures and traditions of each destination. From local folklore, heritage crafts and ancient healing techniques, to authentic epicurean experiences and traditional Balinese culinary arts, guests can look forward to a natural connection to the destination, at every facet of their journey.
