BALI, INDONESIA—Meliá Hotels International has opened Sol House Bali Legian, a new lifestyle hotel catering to the emerging market of young, affluent party tourists. Located in Legian on the west coast of Bali, the hotel has a modern design and beach club vibe. It marks the first Sol House hotel in Asia and the seventh Meliá Hotels International property open in Indonesia.
“As we continue to expand on our 30-year presence in Indonesia, we are excited to bring a Sol House-branded hotel to Bali. We strongly believe that hotel products and services have to be based on a clear understanding of the shifts in the needs and expectations of today’s travelers,” said Bernardo Cabot, VP, Asia Pacific for Meliá Hotels International. “Sol House Bali Legian caters specifically to millennial and other modern travelers’ segments, and I am proud that Meliá can continue to bring our renowned level of hospitality to this important market segment.”
The property offers 136 new rooms with modern design, pool views and art by local street artist Quint. The hotel also integrates social media directly into its operations, featuring a Tweet concierge service allowing guests to tweet their service requests.
With a driven-by-music mantra, the hotel will feature international DJs, live performances and backstage parties. The Sol Sets Rooftop has an oversized jacuzzi and DJ booth. In addition, there are 12 exclusive party rooms as well as 24-hour cocktail service.
For dining, the PlayBar serves an all-day urban cuisine. From Tuesday to Sunday, the venue offers an events calendar: Manis & Martinis, Get Inked and Soundays are among the experiences available. Elsewhere, the Resting Palm Pool Bar provides drink options and party platters.
