Now Open: The Ritz-Carlton Bali

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC heralded its return to Bali this week with the opening of its newest luxury resort on the Indonesian island. Located in Sawangan on Nusa Dua’s southern tip, The Ritz-Carlton Bali is set on 12.7 hectares of expansive and beautifully manicured beach-front and cliff-top land, promising guests dramatic landscapes and a culturally-immersive experience.


Local themes inspire the resort’s designs. The use of wood and natural plants throughout the property pay homage to “Kalpataru”, the local Tree of Life that represents strength, wisdom and beauty, while the rustic yet elegant “anyaman” (weaved) decor is influenced by local craftsmen and artisans. The 313 guestrooms, suites and villas are luxuriously furnished for the discerning traveller, with plush bedding, marble bathrooms and the latest in-room technology. These include 34 cliff top and ocean view villas that offer added living spaces and sweeping coastline views of the Indian Ocean.


The Ritz-Carlton Bali’s highly-skilled culinary team showcases their gastronomic expertise at 6 restaurant and lounges. The all-day dining venue, Senses, presents international favorites while local specialties can be had at Bejana, the resort’s soon-to-open Indonesian restaurant. As its name suggests, The Beach Grill serves up seafood and grilled dishes along the shore, a perfect location to take in Bali’s renowned sunsets. Alternatively, evening drinks can be enjoyed at the Japanese lounge and bar Raku, The Ritz-Carlton Lounge & Bar or the Breezes Tapas Lounge by the pool.


A host of recreational and social options are available to guests. From its cliff-top location, a 70-meter glass elevator whisks guests down to beach level, ensuring views of the lush landscape and scenery along the way. Here, the resort also offers a host of pools and sun decks, including dedicated areas for The Ritz-Carlton Club Level and the brand’s signature Ritz Kids club. The Ritz-Carlton Spa, opening soon, will offer a distinctive Balinese wellness experience, with 14 serene treatment rooms that seamlessly incorporate indoor and outdoor spaces. An oceanfront wedding chapel is the perfect way of having a romantic island wedding, while the property’s meeting facilities can accommodate up to 200 guests for corporate and private events.


The Ritz-Carlton Bali extends the brand’s footprint in Indonesia, where it currently operates The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta Mega Kuningan and The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta Pacific Place in the capital. The brand is also developing a second Balinese resort, Mandapa, scheduled to open later this year in the arts and cultural district of Ubud.
