Bali welcomes Kempinski property

For meetings facing the beach, the pillar-less grand ballroom can host up to 900 delegates.

As Bali climbs the ranks as a serious meetings destination, the opening of The Apurva Kempinski Bali comes in good timing. The dreamy oceanfront property sits in Nusa Dua, a quieter, more upscale area of the island away from the raucous party districts of Kuta and Seminyak. As a bonus, Nusa Dua is only a 15-minute drive from the international airport.

Neighbouring the 475-room property along its ocean stretch are Hilton and Ritz-Carlton, but Kempinski manages to stand out with a more refined finish, as is expected with the brand. For instance, the Javanese-style lobby opens up to a soaring tiered roof that immediately draws the eye upwards. Dark woods, intricate Javanese hand-carved partitions, and antique furnishings are used to add richness around the property.

For meetings facing the beach, the pillarless grand ballroom can host up to 900 delegates and there are several break-out rooms for smaller meetings. However, the best space in the house is the 2,200-sqm ocean-facing lawn situated right on the sand, ideal for al fresco cocktail receptions. Already, the hotel has hosted meetings for C-suite executives from Jakarta, and we’re certain it’ll see more stream in.
