Popular Australian accommodation brand, Mantra Hotels & Resorts, is set to open its first hotel in Asia with a new resort development in Bali opening in December. Located in Bali’s famous resort enclave, the Mantra Nusa Dua is conveniently situated just 10km from Denpasar Airport and will offer 172 spacious guest rooms including 24 suites, a spa & wellness facility and extensive conference space.
Mantra Group CEO, Bob East, said Mantra’s 52 Australian hotels and resorts are already a popular choice with domestic travellers, who will now enjoy the same level of service and product they have become familiar with in a destination already popular with this market.
“It is an exciting time for Mantra and we are so pleased to be opening our first Asian property in Bali, combining a familiar brand name with a popular destination for Australian travellers and further expanding our growing hotel network,” said Mr East.
The new 172 room resort will offer an exclusive onsite spa & wellness facility; state of the art fitness club; a unique indoor/outdoor pool with pool bar & lounge plus separate children’s pool; a restaurant serving Asian and western cuisine and sports bar.
Guest rooms and Suites will offer modern decor; high speed internet access, flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities and private bar – Suites will also offer a DVD/CD player and separate dining and living room.
Extensive conference space with a ballroom catering for up to 400 delegates and eight meeting rooms and boardrooms with dedicated business centre is also on offer. The resort is also a perfect destination for weddings.
Mantra has partnered with MJB Hoteliers on this exciting new project and Managing Director, and well known hotel identity in Indonesia, Michael Burchett said he was very positive about the impact of the Mantra brand in the region.
“The Mantra brand has excellent traction with the Australian market and to be the first Mantra hotel in Indonesia is a very exciting prospect,” he said.
“The extensive distribution network and the dynamic marketing campaigns that Mantra has built around the association with Pat Rafter will create some amazing opportunities for us.”
The Mantra Nusa Dua is the first of a series of properties to be opened in Bali by Mantra Group with properties also planned for development in Lombok and Seminyak over the next two years under the Group’s luxury Peppers accommodation brand.
The expansion into Asia complements the Group’s extensive growth in the Pacific which has seen a further five properties added to the Australian and New Zealand network of Peppers retreats and resorts this year.
The New Zealand network will see another Peppers property in Marlborough Sounds and a Mantra in Lake Tekapo join the network by the end of 2012.
A new Peppers development on Naisoso Island in Fiji is also set for opening in 2014.
