Kempinski Hotels has signed a management agreement with Indonesian real estate developer Panorama Indah Dewata for a hilltop hideaway in the heart of Bali.
Situated near the emerald rice terraces and coffee plantations of Tegalalang village, The Apurva Kempinski Ubud, Bali, is scheduled to open in 2027.
The property will offer 160 rooms and villas which will cascade down the jungle-covered slopes around an open-sided lobby lounge. Accommodation includes rooms and suites, panoramic Cliff Villas complete with outdoor decks and private pools, and six 200m² Villas nestled in the forest.
Facilities comprise an infinity pool, rooftop lounge and bar, F&B, spa, and a tropical aviary that provides sanctuary for a veritable menagerie of exotic birdlife from Indonesia and beyond.
Bernold Schroeder, CEO and chairman of the executive board, Kempinski Group, shared: “With this new addition to our Indonesian portfolio, we will offer travellers two distinct Balinese experiences, combining beachfront bliss in Nusa Dua with a serene hillside escape in the heart of Ubud, both underpinned by the warmth and generosity of Balinese hospitality.”
The Apurva Kempinski Ubud will be the second Kempinski resort in Bali, following the opening of The Apurva Kempinski Bali in 2019. The upcoming Apurva Kempinski Lombok, will also open in 2027.
