One of Sanur’s legendary hotel, Bali Hyatt, has recently re-introduced itself as Hyatt Regency Bali after a long period of five-year revitalization. The luxury beachfront resort is now welcoming old and new guests with its refined and new look while retaining its original awe and hospitality as the hotel did before during the glorious 45 years of Bali Hyatt Sanur.
Located in the old site of Bali Hyatt on the main street of Sanur, about 22-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, Hyatt Regency Bali features 363 elegantly designed rooms, overlooking the tranquil garden or the Indian Ocean. Balinese touches, from distinctive carved banyan wood or half-split bamboo wall panelling to woven rattan panels on doors, are added to evoke the cultural vibe of the island. As one of its highlights, the hotel includes 39 one-bedroom suites with spacious balconies up to 753 square feet in size. With a separate living room that can accommodate an extra bed and an additional powder room with a shower, the suites are an ideal choice for families and groups.
Stepping outside the room, the fans of the former Bali Hyatt will enjoy some nostalgia as the facilities, including the garden, are carefully redesigned to maintain the look and feel of the original while adding some modern touches. The hotel’s lobby was also remodelled to reflect its original design including its rustic thatched alang-alang (elephant grass) roof, which has been expanded to provide improved views of the gardens and the stunning Indian Ocean.
Time of indulgence amidst Sanur’s peaceful vibe is perfected with the resort’s three unique open-air, drinking and dining venues: Omang Omang, an all-day restaurant offering comfort food from Indonesia and around the world. Overlooking Sanur Beach the next is Pizzeria specializing in pasta cooked à la minute, pizza baked in wood-fired ovens, frozen cocktails and Italian sodas muddled with fresh fruit and herbs. And, as its name refers to, Piano Lounge is ideal for a quiet drink, casual business meeting or social gathering. The venue features live music, including gamelan (Indonesian percussion) during the day and piano by night. To minimize its environmental impact, the entire resort and all dining outlets use minimal plastic, opting instead for paper straws, recyclable coffee cups and bags made from bagasse (sugar-cane pulp).
Other facilities that you can expect from a luxury resort are three swimming pools located just along the beach, 24-hour fitness centre, Shanka Spa, an outdoor playground Camp Hyatt, ballroom, and meeting rooms.
