BALI, INDONESIA—The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. plans to open its next resort, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, in Ubud in the summer of 2015.

The location of Ubud is in the spiritual and cultural heart of Bali, according to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C, in a district well known for its temples and monasteries. This property is situated along the Ayung River, with views of Bali’s terraced rice paddy fields adjacent to the village temple.

“The Ritz-Carlton Reserve offers guests a contemporary interpretation of the local lifestyle and culture,” stated Herve Humler, president and COO of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. “The concept is simple, yet exudes style and luxurious levels of comfort. The resorts provide a complete escape to the unexpected; a private, exclusive leisure experience that blends unique elements of the local culture, history, and heritage with intuitive individual service, exquisite indigenous design, casual ambience and respect for the surrounding environment.”

Architectural design inspiration is taken from the environment of Ubud. The property will have 60 villas and suites showcasing native architectural features indigenous to Bali with elements of the native art scene.
