UNITY IN DIVERSITY PROGRAMME
AT THE APURVA KEMPINSKI BALI
Five of the resort’s distinguished dining destinations will showcase Indonesia’s astounding regional cuisine throughout the year. Starting with the cuisine of Sumatra in February and March, discover tasty dishes at Selasar Deli, Pala Restaurant, Reef Beach Club, Bai Yun, and the beloved aquarium restaurant, Koral. Expect to taste the flavour of Imperial Cuisines and a unique jamu ritual when one checks into the resort.
Inspired by a 2,000-year-old tradition, the award-winning Apurva Spa is renowned for its holistic wellness and beauty programme. From a bespoke multi-day spa journey to a face treatment, it lives by the philosophy in which true beauty is achieved when outer beauty is in harmony with its inner one. Highlights include Awakening the Chakra Spirit, curated treatments using a myriad of essences, oils and scrubs, and healing rituals. Experience Kalimantan’s Batimung Mask, sandalwood-inspired oil and scrub treatments from Nusa Tenggara, Javanese Lulur Mangir’s body scrub ritual, and many more during 2022.
THE ART OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
A bi-monthly exhibition will be displayed at designated places across the resort, showcasing the outstanding craftsmanship of Indonesia’s prominent fashion designers. Asha Smara Darra,
Era Soekamto and Franklin Firdaus will display their creations exclusively at The Apurva Kempinski Bali. The exhibition starts with the talented Torang Sitorus, whose extensive knowledge of Sumatra’s textiles and highly-coveted creations with traditional ulos fabric, can be seen in the resort throughout February and March.
