Luxury Meets Comfort at Grand Hyatt Bali
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.
