Mamaka doors now open
Mamaka by Ovolo is now open to guests, with the resort awaiting government clearance for Aussies to visit.

Ovolo Group has opened doors for the first time in a third country, with the rogue hotel brand now welcoming guests to Mamaka by Ovolo, the company’s first urban resort in Indonesia.

Situated on the northern Kuta beachfront border with Legian, the 191-room Mamaka by Ovolo sits in a pocket near some of the island hotspot’s iconic entertainment and retail centres. The resort reflects a vibrant showcase of Balinese culture, interspersed with creature comforts and functional guest amenities and design.

Guest facilities at Ovolo’s newest property include a dedicated Wellness Zone featuring fitness centre with TRX gym equipment, boxing equipment and a balancing surfboard activity. The Wellness Centre is also open to non-guests who can gain access by purchasing a membership package. Also on offer to guests are surfing lessons from ISA-accredited coaches as part of a partnership between the resort and the Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy.

The hotel’s dining scene is headlined by a rooftop bar and recreation area overlooking the energy of the bustling street below. Further food offerings can be found at Street 32 Cocktail Bar and Eatery which specialises in Pan-Asian street-style food. For corporate and business visitors, the resort will later this month launch its meeting and event spaces which will consist of a variety of venues throughout the hotel.

Mamaka by Ovolo features a rooftop pool and cabanas available to rent.

Walls at Mamaka feature a collection of iconic images from Australian surfing photographer, Jason Childs. In-room facilities for guests include stocked mini-bars featuring cocktail equipment inviting guests to create their own colourful libations.

Leading the new Mamaka by Ovolo is General Manager, Joel Bartlett, who said he couldn’t wait to be able to welcome guests from Australia, New Zealand and all over the world to deliver the mind-blowing Ovolo experience.

“Mamaka’s perfect location on Kuta Beach brings a much-needed revamp to the area and we are here to bring back the good vibrations,” Bartlett said.

Indonesia is not currently open to Australians however discussions between the two governments and relevant health authorities remain ongoing to determine a safe way for tourism between the two countries to resume. Efforts are currently focusing on opening a COVID-safe passage before the end of 2021.
