The Ritz-Carlton opened its newest resort in Bali today, aiming to impress travelers of all varieties with Balinese hospitality and far-reaching Indian Ocean views.

The Ritz-Carlton Bali features 313 hotel rooms in Sawangan, Nusa Dua nestled among 12.7 hectacres encompassing beach-front and cliff-top property.

Thirty-four of the rooms are cliff top and ocean view villas and the hotel has amenities to accommodate vacationers, couples, wedding parties, honeymooners, families, and business travellers and conference goers alike.

Unique aspects of the Bali hotel include “180-degree unobstructed views of the Indian Ocean” and a “70 meter high glass elevator providing guests with access to the beach, ensuring views of the lush landscape and exquisite scenery,” according to a press release from The Ritz-Carlton.

Local culture has played a significant influence in the theme and décor of The Ritz-Carlton Bali.

The hotel says the Tree of Life and its representation of strength, wisdom, and beauty are widespread across the property and resort area. Décor is predominantly “Anyaman” style and inspired by the nearby landscape as well as local craftsmen. These elements combine to create an environment that the hotel describes as being “as elegant as it is rustic.”

The Ritz-Carlton Bali is also available to host large groups and special events. An oceanfront wedding chapel is available for island weddings and meeting facilities can accommodate up to 200 guests for corporate or private events.

Families are kept in mind with a special building devoted to Ritz Kids that has play and study areas plus a private pool.

Club Level privileges include a private pool and sun deck for club guests only.

A spa– set to open soon– will take advantage of the picturesque setting by offering 14 treatment rooms that blend relaxing indoor and outdoor backdrops.

Options in the way of food and cocktails for guests of The Ritz-Carlton Bali include offerings from six on-site restaurants and lounges that meld local ingredients into meals and drinks with an international flair.

A beach restaurant with ocean views, The Beach Grill, is situated along the shore and provides seafood and grill specialties while Breezes Tapas Lounge provides light snacks and refreshments poolside.

Raku is a Japanese lounge & bar offering innovative food and drinks; premium teas are served at The Ritz-Carlton Lounge & Bar; and Senses is a restaurant for dining all day.

Bejana—opening soon— is the resort’s Indonesian restaurant that will give guests an opportunity to take part in learning programs at the Culinary Cave. The hotel describes this as “a unique epicurean learning experience with programs personally tailored to suit groups and individuals.”

The Ritz-Carlton Bali is conveniently located near popular off-site tourist destinations and 30 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport, according to the hotel.
