Like the fa­bled Ba­li­nese wa­ter palaces of old, Grand Hy­att Bali is a clus­ter of four eth­nic vil­lages set amidst an in­ter­link­ing sys­tem of cas­cad­ing wa­ter­falls, land­scaped gar­dens and la­goons that me­an­der through 40 acres of lush trop­i­cal gar­dens in the ex­clu­sive re­sort area of Nusa Dua.

Lo­cated along the snowy white Nusa Dua Beach, Grand Hy­att Bali has long been a sym­bol of lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion in Bali. Sit­u­ated in BTDC – a com­pound of fives­tar ho­tels in Nusa Dua – Grand Hy­att Bali of­fers not only rooms and suites but also two lux­u­ri­ous vil­las – Villa Tam­blin­gan (three bed­rooms) and Villa Ber­atan ( two bed­rooms). Both vil­las are lo­cated away from other ho­tel rooms, pro­vid­ing a sense of pri­vacy and tran­quil­lity. And the prime beach­front lo­ca­tion means wak­ing up to the sound of waves and drink­ing in glo­ri­ous views of the In­dian Ocean any time of day. Villa Tam­blin­gan and Villa Ber­atan fea­ture sim­i­lar de­sign prin­ci­ples. Both are el­e­gantly dec­o­rated with lo­cal arte­facts and de­sign pieces. Ex­pect a Ba­li­nese flair that is light, spa­cious, yet au­then­tic. The teak­wood fur­ni­ture cre­ates a lux­u­ri­ous yet homey feel. Ev­ery de­tail of the vil­las has been crafted with a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of lux­ury and home­li­ness, from the com­fort­able over­size cush­ions on the sofa to the rus­tic Ba­li­nese ceil­ing. One of the lux­u­ries of stay­ing in a villa is the home away from home feel­ing – a to­tally dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence com­pared to check­ing into a ho­tel room. That homey feel­ing can be felt in the lay­out and fa­cil­i­ties of the vil­las. There are no suit­cases and things scat­tered across the floor thanks to the huge wardrobe. Re­lax in the liv­ing room on the plush sofa and take a nap after a long day on the beach. Sink into a hot bath in the huge mar­ble tub – so huge that it can eas­ily fit a fam­ily of four. The canopy bed with King Koil mat­tress pro­vides a dreamy, snug­gly feel. Ex­tend the homey feel­ing by invit­ing friends over and en­ter­tain them in the spa­cious din­ing room, which can seat up to eight guests. Cook­ing a meal in the villa’s kitchen is sim­ple and con­ve­nient. The kitchen is equipped with a mi­crowave, stove, Saeco cof­fee ma­chine, two-door fridge, sink and table­ware from St. James. An­other con­ve­nience of stay­ing in a villa is the ded­i­cated ser­vice given to each guest, start­ing from check-in, where guests can skip the queue in the lobby and check in at the villa. Dur­ing the

stay, a per­sonal but­ler is avail­able 24 hours. The highly ex­pe­ri­enced but­lers, some of whom have worked for the prop­erty for 24 years and have catered to world lead­ers, VIPs and gen­er­a­tions of wealthy fam­i­lies, are ready to ful­fil all re­quests, from or­ga­niz­ing ro­man­tic din­ners to babysit­ting. Miss­ing toi­letries can al­ways be re­placed free of charge, while ameni­ties such as curl­ing iron and yoga mat can be bor­rowed from the ho­tel. As the vil­las are lo­cated within a five-star re­sort, guests can also en­joy the shared fa­cil­i­ties. With five pools to choose from, guests can al­ter­nate be­tween pri­vate and la­goon pool or even en­joy the wa­ter­slide. A choice of din­ing op­tions means guests do not have to leave the ho­tel for a great meal. Choices range from Salsa Verde, a beach­front Ital­ian restau­rant, to Nampu, an au­then­tic Ja­panese restau­rant with Iza­kaya am­bi­ence. All meals in­clud­ing break­fast from the in-house restau­rants can be served in the villa, mak­ing it more con­ve­nient and pri­vate for guests. Villa guests also have au­to­matic ac­cess to the newly ren­o­vated Grand Club Lounge, which hosts break­fast, cock­tails and tea. For guests who want to re­main ac­tive, The Bay Club­fit­ness­cen­tre­of­fersmod­ern­fit­ness­ma­chines that can be ac­cessed 24 hours a day, ta­ble-top ten­nis, two squash courts, pri­vate yoga lessons, sauna and plunge pool. Or take ad­van­tage of the re­sort’s long and pris­tine coast­line. With 650 me­tres of coast­line, Grand Hy­att Bali is the re­sort with the long­est beach­front in Bali. Take a stroll or ride a bi­cy­cle while oc­ca­sion­ally glimps­ing the chip­munks hid­ing in the rows of trees. For those who want to re­lax and be pampered, Kriya Spa of­fers an un­for­get­table spa ex­pe­ri­ence. Re­sem­bling a holy wa­ter palace, Kriya, which

means “rit­ual” in San­skrit, is de­signed to cre­ate pri­vate and lux­ury spa mo­ments – hence the use of 24 in­di­vid­ual vil­las in­stead of treat­ment rooms. Each spa villa is fully equipped with a plunge pool, out­door mas­sage bed and bath­tub, spa­cious bath­room, in­door mas­sage bed and yoga balé. For guests who value pri­vacy, each villa is equipped with a mas­sage bed for in-villa treat­ments. Kriya of­fers Ba­li­nese and Ayurvedic treat­ments that are fo­cused on pro­mot­ing pos­i­tive well­be­ing. Thus the treat­ments are meant not only to pam­per but also to heal, such as the Pi­jat Cokor mas­sage to re­lease ten­sion and the Ka­tee Basti to re­lieve lower back pain. All treat­ments are per­formed as part of a rit­ual. First the ther­a­pist will start with a foot mas­sage us­ing salt lo­cally sourced from the Kusamba re­gion, be­fore con­sult­ing the guest on the dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of mas­sage oil. The oil is soy­abased and wa­ter sol­u­ble, and is light and non­sticky. After the treat­ment, the guest can make a wish us­ing the golden dream ball and en­joy a sip of herbal tea in the re­lax­ation lounge. Grand Hy­att Bali pro­vides a unique villa ex­pe­ri­ence with five-star fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vice. Guests will ex­pe­ri­ence the pri­vacy and com­fort of a villa while at the same time bask­ing in the priv­i­leges of a five-star re­sort. Lux­ury, after all, can only be en­joyed when one truly feels at ease – and that is what Grand Hy­att Bali of­fers.
