New Ovolo resort to open in Bali this year

The Ovolo Group will welcome the first hotel outside of its Australian and Hong Kong offerings, with its first property in Indonesia.

Mamaka by Ovolo will open late 2020 on the beachfront of Bali’s Kuta. Having purchased the Citadines Kuta Beach Bali late last year, Ovolo Group has closed the property before it reopens later this year offering 191 designer rooms and suites, innovative food and drink concepts, and unique experiences.

The project also marks a new design direction for the brand, with Ovolo recently unveiling its new brand architecture alongside the Wonder. Full. branding, the By Ovolo Collective.

Mamaka Kuta Beach joins this collection of hotels which includes Nishi Apartments Canberra Australia, Mojo Nomad Aberdeen Harbour Hong Kong and soon to launch The Sheung Wan Central Hong Kong, expected in April.

The resort will offer the highest rooftop pool club with 270-degree views of the Bali’s western beaches from Jimbaran to Canggu and beyond.

“Convention was not considered, this is our take on a resort,” said Girish Jhunjhnuwala, founder and CEO of Ovolo Group.

“It will be a playground for travellers through food and drink with attitude, wellness and activities, a surf school and shop, and a little self-indulgence. This urban resort will bring a killer experience to Kuta adding to its already and growing vibe.”
