Against the backdrop of serene and spectacular views, cool ocean breezes flow through Bali’s iconic rice paddies and lead to The Apurva Kempinski Bali – an opulent getaway destination that captures the essence of Indonesian identity while maintaining the height of luxury. Designed in the style of a majestic open-air theater, this new hotel features outstanding architecture and extensive facilities, including a swimming pool and massive ballroom. 475 well-appointed guestrooms will be on offer, with striking suites and villas set among a quiet beachfront setting. Six restaurants, bars, and lounges allow guests to unwind and soak in the beautiful Balinese sunlight, all while enjoying delicious menus that celebrate regional flavors.

Bali is the ideal setting for this masterpiece in the Kempinski collection, featuring stunning beaches and temples with virtually every kind of natural beauty. Glorious mountain areas feature lush forestland, among which The Apurva Kempinski Bali cascades down the hillside and towards the Indian Ocean. Buidman Hendropurnomo, the award winning architect, was inspired to create this unique design after studying Balinese rice terraces and their ancient subak irrigation system. Emerging from this inspiration is a symphony of natural-clad stone buildings, with a network of waterways and shimmering pools that are the perfect setting for nightly rituals.

Opulent interior design pays tribute to the country’s rich history of design and heritage, all while adding modern touches ensure The Apurva stays in the present day. Flourishes like the intricate hand-carved gebyok partitions are emblems of former prosperous kingdoms, and in guest rooms rich and exotic woods and Indonesian motifs creates an understated and sophisticated atmosphere that is luxurious and cozy.

The Apurva Kempinski Bali is also home to a wide variety of culinary experiences, presenting colorful and flavorful dishes that celebrate the regional diversity of Indonesia. Delicious seaside delicacies are on offer at the Koral, while Japanese flavors are showcased by Izakaya by OKU. In the lobby, Selasar Deli serves delicious coffees and herbal tonics, with live cooking stations to tantalize the taste buds with local and international flavors.

For those who prefer a more relaxing stay, the Apurva Spa overlooks the Indian ocean, allowing you to enjoy the view while receiving soothing and relaxing full-body treatments. Therapies for the body are inspired by ancient Javanese and Balinese wisdom, while activities such as sunrise yoga and meditation will pave the path to inner peace and balance.
