BALI—Mantra Group opened Mantra Nusa Dua Bali, its first resort in the region.
“We are proud to see the Mantra name in Bali, combining a brand and a destination already popular with the Australian and New Zealand market," said Mantra Group CEO Bob East.
Having partially opened one guestroom wing in March, Mantra Nusa Dua now has all 172 rooms completed as well as all leisure facilities and food and beverage outlets.
The resort offers a Chakra Spa & Wellness facility; fitness club; indoor/outdoor pool with pool bar and lounge, plus separate children’s pool.
Three food and beverage outlets are offered, including Rasa, an all day dining outlet serving traditional Indonesian cuisine; the Orchid Lounge for casual dining and light meals; and Splash poolside dining and bar.
Conference space with a ballroom able to accommodate up to 400 persons and eight meeting rooms and boardrooms with dedicated business center also are offered.
Mantra partnered with MJB Hoteliers on the Mantra Nusa Dua project and plans further development and acquisition opportunities in Bali across all three of Mantra Group’s brands: Peppers, Mantra and BreakFree, according to the company.
Negotiations are under way on a further six hotels, two which will carry the Mantra name as well as well the first BreakFree property—Mantra Group’s economy style brand. Another three properties in the pipeline will see the luxury Peppers brand make its debut into the market, according to the company.
