The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa in Nusa Dua, Bali, unveils its newly-transformed 30-year old property, in time for the G20 Summit.
It was the first international resort in Nusa Dua then and was built by Rajawali Property Group. Since its opening, the resort has welcomed dignitaries and guests from around the world, many of whom became loyal clients of The Laguna.
“Last week, we welcomed a family who has marked their 100th visit to the Laguna,” said Lucia Liu, general manager of the hotel when introducing the newly transformed resort to the media in Jakarta recently.
Shirley Tan, CEO, Rajawali Property Group, in a statement said: “The heart of the remake of The Laguna, our very first in two decades, ensures that the next chapter of the resort’s journey honours its rich indigenous heritage through stunning décor.
“Our timely decision to renovate The Laguna in the midst of a global pandemic was driven by our commitment to restore this historic icon and inspire others to rebuild Bali for the future.”
The guestrooms, restaurants and public areas have undergone a restoration, along with an entirely revamped arrival and lobby experience.
The 287 rooms, suites, and villas have been refreshed with natural materials and inspired by the collective stories and traditions of Bali. Nautical elements take centre stage in the nuanced design, influenced by the resort’s seven lagoons.
Emblematic features such as a panel of Balinese sulaman embroidery on headboards and other details highlighting travel and discovery can be seen throughout the resort, part of the DNA of The Luxury Collection.
The F&B outlets have also been transformed into an Epicurean Destination for Gourmands.
The all-day dining Banyubiru is a tribute to the unique traditional warung stalls in the villages and offers breakfast and themed dinners.
De Bale is a re-enactment of a quintessential Balinese village courtyard, where come evening, showcases village dances and storytelling for all guests – the theatrical lounge and bar also features an expansive entertainment terrace, suitable for events.
This concept is in line with brand concept of “Hotel that Defines Destination”, Liu told TTG Asia.
“As part of the brand culture, The Laguna Bali is intrinsically connected to its locale, offering singularly distinctive experiences where once unfamiliar places are encountered, new connections are forged, and new cultures are embraced, leaving guests transformed – their stories enriched, their world expanded,” she said.
