Accor, the largest international operator of hotels in Asia-Pacific and Indonesia, announces the opening of Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua, the newest member of the MGallery Collection in Bali, Indonesia.

This resort is a newly-built, all-villa property boasting one of the best locations in Bali – in the heart of the Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) complex in Nusa Dua, on the southern coast of the island. This exclusive villa resort combines lavish facilities and amenities, with traditional Balinese elements set among lush, landscaped gardens.

“We are delighted to add Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua to the MGallery Collection of memorable hotels,” says Gerard Guillouet, Senior Vice President of Accor Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

“Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua is the perfect resort for upscale customers who enjoy a hotel with a unique story and distinguish concept. This resort combines its exceptional location with the excellence of its services and individual attention, making every stay a memorable experience.”

Pascal Bellon, Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua’s General Manager added: “The opening of this memorable sanctuary of villas in heavenly Bali offers upscale guests unprecedented level of privacy, five-star hospitality and a sense of ‘Serenity’. Combining contemporary comforts with respect to the environment, the resort is inspired by the daily life of a traditional Balinese village.”

According to Bellon, Staying true to the values of tranquillity, serenity and memorable hospitality, Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua is an oasis of exotic beauty with lush gardens and private pools while providing easy access to Bali’s main convention centre and just a stone’s throw away from the sublime white sand beaches of Nusa Dua.

Amarterra, which comes from the words “Amarta” which means water and “Terra” meaning earth, reflects how these two elements combine to allow sophisticated guests – from honeymooners to business and leisure travellers – to rest and relax amongst Bali’s renowned natural surroundings. The traditional architecture and designs are influenced by the 13th century Majapahit Kingdom when Javanese culture had a strong influence in Bali. Guests will experience this enchanted concept from the moment they arrive at the splendid Chandra Suriya Gate, a symbol of harmonious life, before entering through to the inspirational villas.

With just 39 villas – from one, two and three bedroom villas – each is designed to become a tranquil haven for full relaxation. Artfully crafted with richly-textured materials, the villas’ décor is accentuated by intricate furnishings and colourful finishes. The villas are equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment systems, open lounges, a dining area, and private swimming pool and gazebo, plus luxurious bathroom for guests to enjoy a delightful soak.

Styled as a tropical garden retreat, the resort’s Terra Terrace restaurant and bar offer guests all-day dining with fusion cuisine blending authentic Indonesian gastronomy with modern influences. The Amarterra Spa provides a spa experience using Dharma Bali therapy that will rejuvenate and refresh both the body and mind. The treatment menu is inspired from Bali’s heritage and traditions using natural products, mostly made from different parts of a coconut tree. Amarterra Spa’s signature treatments include Virgin Coconut Oil Body Scrub, Sirodhara and Balinese “Urut” Massage.

The resort also provides a variety of facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, a beach club, a gymnasium, boutique shop and gallery, and a meeting room.
