Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide has signed an agreement with PT Tiara Raya Bali International to develop a new 123-suite Le Meridien-branded resort in Bali, Indonesia.
Located on Bali's western coast, the yet-to-open Ristia Resort is to be renamed Le Meridien Bali - Jimbaran under the terms of the deal and is scheduled to open in mid-2012.
Facilities will include a full-service spa; a fitness suite; a "uniquely-designed" lagoon pool; and meeting space, as well as the three-storey Bamboo Chic restaurant and bar.
Eva Ziegler, global brand leader for Le Meridien and W Hotels Worldwide, said: "Le Meridien has undergone a comprehensive brand transformation in the six years since it was acquired by Starwood.
"In this new era for Le Meridien, with its best portfolio ever and a new brand direction, we are proud to return to Bali, specifically a perfect lifestyle destination such as Jimbaran."
