Pullman Bali Legian Nirwana opening the doors yesterday. The Accor-managed resort will initially offer 140 rooms, with a further 213 being added over the next few months, taking the resort’s total inventory to 353 rooms.
Located at Legian Beach, Pullman Bali Legian Nirwana’s rooms offer views overlooking both Kuta and Legian beaches, or the courtyard gardens and pool. All rooms come equipped with deluxe Pullman bedding, iPod docking station, LCD flat screen TV, WiFi and broadband internet connection, and even a personal yoga mat.
Resort facilities include two swimming pools – a garden pool and rooftop infinity-edged pool, both with their own sundecks – while a spa will be launched in late February 2011. From April, the spa will be extended to a wellbeing centre incorporating a vitality pool and hydrothermal therapies.
The resort’s General Manager, Philippe Battle, said; “We are delighted to be opening the Pullman Bali Legian Nirwana and bringing a new generation of hotel for visitors to Bali. The Pullman Bali Legian Nirwana like hotels of the brand around the world, is designed with today’s modern traveller in mind with smart use of technologies, reinvented services that focus on indulgent yet efficient stays, and facilities that will appeal to leisure travellers from all parts of the globe as well as events participants and their organisers.”
F&B facilities include “Deli @ Pullman”, a brasserie-style restaurant offering an a la carte menu reflecting Accor’s French culinary heritage. Hotel guests can also enjoy a large selection of fine wines, antipasti and tapas at IP, the hotel’s rooftop bar.
For meetings and event, the hotel features a complimentary ‘Chill-out’ space is designed for socialising before, after, or during events. A dedicated Pullman Event Manager is also available to handle every group request, while the IT Solutions Manager will manage the multimedia and technology side.
Gerard Guillouet, Vice President for Accor in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, said; “Tourism in Indonesia and in Bali in particular, is enjoying a period of extraordinary demand, driven by strong growth from the domestic market as well as short haul destinations in Asia Pacific. This strong demand factor when combined with opportunities in the affordable five star segment in the central tourist areas, made a compelling reason to launch the Pullman brand first in Bali. Accor is the largest international operator of hotels in Indonesia and now has comprehensive brand presence on the island of Bali with hotels covering all segments, and with six hotels operating.”
