Hyatt’s Andaz brand has debuted in Indonesia with the opening of Andaz Bali.
The hotel has finally opened after a 5 year delay (the hotel was supposed to open in 2016). For those of you not familiar, with Andaz, it’s Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand, with roughly 24 properties around the world with this being the 8th in Asia.
Situated in the heart of Sanur, a quaint seaside village, Andaz Bali pays homage to Balinese art and craftsmanship. Sanur, a 22-minute drive from the airport, is located along Bali’s south-eastern coastline.
The property is located right next to the Hyatt Regency, which recently underwent a significant renovation. The highlight of the property is the Village Square where ‘the open, barrier-free design and stimulating programming invites guests and local residents to come together.’
Guest rooms and villas
Designed by the Bangkok-based Tierra Design and Spin Design Studio in Tokyo, Andaz Bali features 149 guest rooms including 18 Garden Villas and 4 Beach Villas.
The accommodations and facilities are set in low-rise clusters and are spread across a lush tropical landscape following the cardinal directions, which play a significant role in the Balinese Hindu religion.
The guest rooms and villas are designed in contemporary Balinese style, using locally sourced materials such as bamboo, andesite stone, marble, and teakwood. Each room has a private balcony that opens to stunning garden, ocean, or lagoon views. The two-bedroom Beach Villas offer a verdant outdoor terrace for intimate gatherings and barbecues, a spacious living room, a swimming pool, and in-villa check-in.
Andaz Bali offers its guests 5 dining venues to choose from. The resort’s signature restaurant, Fisherman’s Club, is a modern take on a Jimbaran seafood dining experience with a sophisticated beach club ambience. Other Food & Beverage offerings include Wok Wok for Asian fare and Indonesian delights, Fire Fox for meat fresh from the grill, Blue Oven serving roasts, and Deli & Bakery for coffee and desserts.
While the hotel doesn’t house its own spa, it rather shares the Shankha Spa with the adjacent Hyatt Regency. The spa offers wellness treatments inspired by Balinese healing traditions using indigenous ingredients such as sea salt, pearl powder, coconut oil, and spices. And this area is also where you would find a fitness centre, sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge pools, yoga space, an adults-only pool, and a small boutique and lounge.
Guests can enjoy a refreshing dip in one of three swimming pools at Andaz Bali – an infinity beachfront pool, a children’s pool as well as a pool that sits beneath a majestic tree for a relaxing vibe.
The hotel also offers four interconnected Studios that span a total of 236 sqm for hosting gatherings and events. Outdoor events can be hosted at the beach, garden, Beach Villas, and private courtyards.
