This year, The St. Regis Bali Resort marks its exquisite 10th anniversary. To commemorate a decade of excellence, I was invited to rediscover the exquisite features, signature services and extraordinary experiences Bali’s finest address has to offer.
First opened its doors in September 2008, The St. Regis Bali Resort introducing a world of exquisite living within a luxurious tropical sanctuary that offers 123 suites and villas, The Strand Residence, world-class dining venues, including award-winning Kayuputi and Boneka, a tranquil refuge at the award-winning Remède Spa, an idyllic romantic beachfront wedding chapel, all perfected with the signature, round-the-clock, St. Regis Butler service.
The anniversary was also an opportunity to announce the completion of 41 villas and two residences that have been redefined to feature more bespoke elements, curated artwork, contemporary design and state-of-the-art technology with a US$ 5 million investment to perfect their lavish design.
Nestled on the edge of Nusa Dua’s clear waters, the three-bedroom Strand Residence boasts 966 square meters of utmost privacy and lavish space with perfectly manicured gardens that extend to Nusa Dua’s sought-after pearly white beach. Perfectly suited for families, the residence comprises three luxuriously kitted out 270 square meter king bedrooms, 52” TV with state-of-the-art sound system and technology, spacious air-conditioned indoor and outdoor living areas, a fully equipped kitchen and dining area replete with butler’s quarters.
Step outside and find the sprawling Balinese gardens with natural plunge pool, tropical rain shower and an outdoor Bale Bengong gazebo, with dedicated seating on the private beach. Originally designed as the owner’s private holiday residence, the two-level estate is tastefully decorated with contemporary Balinese-inspired interiors and furnishings. Dominating hues of tropical blue and fitted glass doors facing the horizons further accentuate the calming and refreshing sensation of the ocean, exuding a tropical feel and providing rejuvenating sights to elevate the comfort level for the residents in house.
The newly redecorated Strand Residence enjoys a grand installation of 5,000 sparkling crystals adorning the living room and 115 kg of crystals on its grand staircase, with exclusively made art pieces and fixtures that showcase the finest Balinese craftsmanship from the cultural villages of Bali.
Throughout the past decade, The St. Regis Bali Resort is humbled to have received numerous noteworthy awards and recognitions such as “World’s Best Beach Hotels 2017” by Travel+Leisure, “50 Best Resorts in the World” and “Top Resorts in Asia” from Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2017, and most recently “Best Resort Hotel in Asia Pacific 2018” from Business Traveller Asia-Pacific to name a few.
