Japanese company Okura Nikko Hotel Management, a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co. has announced they will take over operations of P.T Karya Tehnik Hotelindo starting 1st January, 2018. The hotel will be rebranded as Hotel Nikko Bali in April 2018, although the official name is still being decided and may subsequently change prior to opening.
Located on the coastline of the Badung peninsula in south-eastern Bali, Hotel Nikko Bali will offer 188 rooms, each with private balconies or porches. A total of 20 luxury guestrooms will allow visitors a spacious and exquisite resort atmosphere, conveniently placed within a half-hour drive of Bali’s Denpasar Airport (Ngurah Rai International Airport). The area also offers convenient access to coastlines ideally suited to watersports.
“It will be a great pleasure to introduce the only hotel managed by a Japanese enterprise in the beach resort area of Bali, under the Nikko brand,” said Marcel P. van Aelst, CEO of Okura Nikko Hotel Management. “Hotel Nikko Bali will provide visitors with the comfort and reassurance of the Nikko brand’s unique Japanese-style hospitality,” he continued.
Rebranding of the hotel will get underway at the very beginning of the New Year, entailing renovations to the hotel lobby that include traditional Balinese heritage features such as sculptures, as well as a restaurant offering local cuisine. The rebranded hotel will provide family-friendly facilities such as a nursing room and outdoor pool for children, along with a total of six restaurants, a spa, a fitness centre and more.
Hotel Nikko Bali forms part of Hotel Okura group’s grand plan to expand its global portfolio to a total of 100 properties, primarily in Asia. The group has identified Bali as a fertile landscape in which to break new ground. Over four million tourists visited Bali during the first eight months of 2017, representing an almost 120 percent year-on-year increase. Indonesia is projected to further invest in infrastructure to surpass 20 million foreign tourists by the beginning of 2020, promising steady market growth.
