The tropical paradise of Bali says Selamat Datang (Welcome) to Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. The luxury hotel brand enters this Indonesian vacation hotspot with Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali, a 120 all-suite-and-villa resort situated along a 200m stretch of pristine beach on the southeastern part of the island. Formerly the Regent Bali, which appeared on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2014 Hot List, the resort enjoys an enviable location in the Sanur district, nestled amidst four hectares of lush gardens and 25 minutes away from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
To celebrate this milestone, Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali has announced two introductory offers. Travelers can enjoy 25 per cent off the best available rate when they reside in a spacious suite featuring captivating, panoramic views of tranquil gardens or the ocean. For the ultimate getaway experience, guests can book one night at the best available rate in a home-away-from-home pool villa – available in one, two and three bedroom configurations – and stay the second night for free. Complementing both offers are a range of additional benefits including late check-out and daily breakfast for two.
At Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali, understated elegance and Balinese charm await guests, not to mention food and beverage offerings that are plentiful and varied. Layang Layang specializes in authentic Indonesian cuisine, serving mouth-watering traditional dishes such as Sop Buntut (Indonesian oxtail soup) and Iga Babi Panggang (Balinese spiced pork ribs). Nyala Beach Club and Grill transforms from an informal dining location by day, to a sophisticated venue by night that focuses on Pan-Asian cuisine with a modern twist. At the Lobby Lounge, a Balinese-inspired afternoon tea, light meals can be enjoyed while admiring the gardens and Indian Ocean beyond.
When not indulging in culinary delights, visitors can catch the sunrise on picturesque Sanur beach, take a dip in the resort’s 50m infinity edge lap pool, or opt for a Balinese massage in the serenity of the spa. Guests with little ones in tow will delight in the activity-packed kids’ club, complete with a mini cinema and Sony PlayStation. Other family-friendly activities include strolling along the uninterrupted 5km long footpath that hugs the coastline, or borrowing a bicycle from the resort and cycling around Sanur.
Within Sanur, locals take pride in their hometown being Bali’s first beachside resort area, and how it has resisted the wave of commercialism that has swept the southern part of the island. Charming cafes and local boutiques line the streets, anchored by a museum dedicated to Belgian artist Adrien Jean Le Mayeur, best known for his landscapes of the island he made home.
The addition of Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali to Fairmont’s portfolio comes ahead of the opening of Fairmont Jakarta in 2015, and a second Fairmont property planned for Bali in 2016. It joins the existing portfolio of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Asia including Fairmont Singapore, Fairmont Makati, Fairmont Beijing, Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai, Kunshan's Fairmont Yangcheng Lake and Fairmont Nanjing.
