COMO Assumes Management of Begawan Giri

COMO Hotels and Resorts, having established a reputation for developing
individual escapes that balance the best traditions of design and service
from the East and West, announced today that it has added a new property
to its portfolio: Begawan Giri Estate in Bali.
This unique property, for which COMO Hotels and Resorts assumes immediate
management with significant investment, is considered to be a perfect
match with the company’s existing island retreats; Parrot Cay in the Turks
and Caicos (opened in 1998), and Cocoa Island in the Maldives (2002). This
summer, COMO will open a second Balinese resort, Uma Ubud, in addition to
Uma Paro, the first five-star hotel to open in the Himalayan kingdom of

Begawan Giri Estate, already a highly successful resort, represents the
passion of a single man, Bradley Gardner, and his wife Debbie, who have
developed the award-winning property with keen respect for its auspicious
and serene location. Concealed by a sacred tropical forest, the resort
sits on the banks of the Ayung River on the fringe of Ubud, Bali’s ancient
cultural hub.

COMO Hotels and Resorts shares their vision. Privacy is zealously
protected for both guests and wildlife, affording rare silence. The
architecture of the 22 suites located in five different Residences is an
eclectic selection of indigenous styles. Acknowledgement of cultural
context - - especially in the resort’s sensitive aesthetics—is
appropriately aligned with COMO’s driving philosophy: to create bespoke
retreats where discerning travelers can connect to the spirit of an
unspoilt and precious destination.

COMO’s future plans for developing the property include the creation of a
world-class destination spa conceived by COMO Shambhala. Rodney Yee, one
of America’s most respected yogis, will be among visiting teachers.

Additional details will be announced in due course. In the meantime,
Begawan Giri Estate remains open for business, ensuring continued respect
for detail, indulgence, and unbeatable service.
