The InterContinental Bali Resort has recently unveiled the first of its revamped Singaraja rooms, paying homage to its home island’s artistic heritage.
Designed by Singapore-based firm James Park Associates, the new-look rooms feature hand-painted batik prints and intricate woodcarvings, full-height murals inspired by designs found on Balinese textiles, while custom-made pendant lamps take their cues from the terra-cotta crown finials found atop Bali’s thatched roofs. Sustainably sourced Indonesian timber is used throughout the spaces, as are tropical hardwood veneers, lacquered tobacco leaf and faux-shagreen. Hand-tufted wool rugs adorned with local patterns add a further dash of opulence.
Guest quarters also incorporate a Smart IPTV system, with a 43-inch wall-mounted screen that offers access to thousands of high quality digital TV and radio channels from around the world, not to mention movies and TV series on demand, internet radio, YouTube channel and live streaming via a high-speed connection. Guests can even watch more than one channel at a time via their own Android or iPad (and iPhone) devices. Other options via the IPTV system include a messaging interface for In-Room dining and Concierge services, and facilities such as a world clock, wake up call, interactive maps and interactive flight info.
Meanwhile, several environmentally friendly features have been introduced to the new rooms. Renovated bathrooms now sport low-flow shower heads and taps along with high efficiency dual-flush toilets. To reduce the resort’s energy consumption, occupancy sensors control the lighting and air-conditioning thermostats when no one is present.
Guests can now book the redesigned Singaraja rooms for stays from April 2017.
