Raffles Bali opens as island prepares to welcome return of international visitors

Raffles Hotels & Resorts has opened its 15th Raffles Hotel in the world, with the launch of Raffles Bali.

The luxury hotel offers 32 private pool villas along with Raffles Wellbeing Butlers who are there to provide an insider’s perspective on local customs.

“Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or an intimate oasis of emotional wellbeing, Raffles Bali offers unparalleled panoramic ocean views and captivating sunsets from every villa,” said general manager Katya Herting.

“Our beachfront resort is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, providing utmost relaxation due to its generosity of space.”

Dining venues include Rumari restaurant which overlooks the ocean and Loloan Beach Bar and Grill located on the resort’s secluded beach, overlooking a 25-metre infinity pool.

Private dining experiences can be arranged at The Secret Cave, illuminated with flickering torches and candlelight, or at the Purnama Honeymoon Bale, built on the rocks at the edge of the resort’s ocean front. There is also a signature Writers Bar and the adjoining Library.

“We are delighted to introduce our most iconic hotel brand to the beautiful island of Bali,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and CEO Accor Asia Pacific.

“The highly-anticipated Raffles Bali will be the brand’s second hotel in Indonesia, joining the stunning Raffles Jakarta, and is set to become a special retreat for guests to feel pampered, through meaningful experiences and service that is both gracious and intuitive.”

Bali is set to reopen its borders for international visitors in September.
