Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to open its first resort in Indonesia. The new property will overlook Jimbaran Bay in the south of Bali and be called the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran. Slated to open in 2014, the hotel will feature 270 rooms, including 70 suites. There will also be 70 branded residences. A private road will lead from the resort to the white-sand Jimbaran beach, about 200 meters away.
“Bali is a holidaymaker’s paradise and the exclusive beach location of this resort with its unrestricted views of the bay is certain to be hugely popular,” said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in the Middle East and Asia. “As the company’s first hotel in Indonesia, this is a perfect place to start.”
The resort is one of nine new hotels set to be opened by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts across Asia by 2014. The region has been a major focus for expansion by the upscale Swiss hospitality company, which currently operates two hotels in Thailand, two in Vietnam, and one each in India, the Philippines, and Singapore.
