Second W hotel for Indonesia to open in Bali

Marriott International has signed an agreement to open the W Bali – Ubud.

Developed in partnership with Indonesia’s Ruang Teknik Group, W Bali – Ubud marks the second W Hotel in Indonesia, following the opening of W Bali – Seminyak in 2010.

“Ubud is a hidden destination like no other, where legends and nature intertwine with everyday life to create a magical sense of adventure,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide.

“W Bali – Ubud is an exciting next step for us. We are applying a unique, vibrant sensibility to this hotel, one that has not been seen before on the island. W Bali – Ubud will combine the brand’s boundary-breaking approach to design with the rich cultural, spiritual and artistic influences of Ubud to show off the best of this incredible locale and all we’ve learned in the decade since W debuted in Indonesia.”

The hotel will offer 100 guestrooms, including 10 villas with private swimming pools and an EWOW suite.

One standout feature will be new restaurant Synn, which is partially underground, opening towards a jungle cliff.

Meeting space includes a 176sqm meeting room featuring bright natural lighting and outdoor lawn spaces.

“Bali’s hotel market continues to see strong growth and it remains a major destination in Marriott International’s footprint,” said Paul Foskey, chief development officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International.

“We look forward to partnering with Ruang Teknik Group in introducing W Bali Ubud, the second W-branded hotel in this market.”
