CENTARA Hotels & Resorts has signed a management contract that will see the opening of its first property in Bali.
The Centara Grand Nusa Dua Resort & Villas will be completed at the end of the year. The resort’s soft opening is scheduled for December 2011, with the grand opening to be held in 2012.
Gerd Steeb, president of Centara Hotels & Resorts, said: “Bali represents our fifth overseas destination, and follows the successful opening during the past 18 months of properties in the Maldives, Indian Himalayas, the Philippines and Vietnam.”
Chris Bailey, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts, said: “We are very pleased that our first step into Bali is with our premium Centara Grand, as this brand appeals to couples, families and groups across the medium five-star market.”
Located in Nusa Dua, the property will have 76 guestrooms, ranging in size from 60 to 70m2, and 14 villas offering a choice of one, two or three bedrooms.
The resort will offer an Indian restaurant, an all-day dining restaurant, a lounge bar, a club lounge, kids’ club, a spa, a fitness centre, two swimming pools, and meeting rooms.
