Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) today announced the signing of a management agreement with P.T. Caterison Sukses to manage and re-brand the Grand Nikko Bali as Hilton Bali. The 408-room resort, located on Jalan Raya Nusa Dua Selatan, is planned to open on December 1, 2016.
"We are deeply committed to expanding our presence in Indonesia, both by introducing more brands from our portfolio of 13 brands as well as entering into new locations where we may not currently be operating. Today's announcement underscores both the Hilton brand's strength in this market as well as our management capability to drive exceptional experiences for both guests and owners," said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, Development, Asia and Australasia, Hilton Worldwide. "In partnership with P.T. Caterison Sukses, the Hilton Bali will be a strong addition to our portfolio."
Hilton Bali is ideally located on Bali's picturesque southern coast of Nusa Dua, which is famed for its beaches. The resort is approximately 16 kilometers from Ngurah Rai International Airport and the district of Kuta. Hilton Bali is also close to many watersports facilities and adventure sports service providers that offer various fun-filled options including jet packs, jet skis, para-gliding and dive trips.
"As our flagship brand, Hilton Hotels & Resorts resonates strongly with both leisure and business travelers alike. Hilton Bali will open as a stylish resort offering world-class hospitality synonymous with the Hilton brand and we are delighted to see this beautiful resort join our outstanding global portfolio of more than 570 hotels and resorts," said Sean Wooden, vice president, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide.
Situated on the waterfront with its own stretch of secluded beach and offering stunning views of the Indian Ocean from its clifftop location, Hilton Bali will offer 389 rooms and 19 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas with beachfront, ocean or garden views.
The hotel will have five food and beverage outlets including an all-day dining restaurant, specialty restaurants and a bar. Extensive meetings and banqueting facilities spanning 3,737 square meters will include several meeting rooms, two conference centers with two ballrooms that can accommodate 1,500 people, as well as beachfront, cliff-top and poolside venues that are perfect for outdoor weddings. The hotel features four inter-connected swimming pools, a children's lagoon, three tennis courts, and a fitness center. Guests will also have access to a kids' club and an observation tower that offers panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
"We are pleased to partner with a global hospitality leader that has a legacy of success and a strong luxury brand that is recognized across the globe. We are confident that Hilton Bali will be a magnet for business and leisure and international and domestic travelers, as well as corporate meetings and wedding planners," said Charles Djunaidi, Director, P.T. Caterison Sukses.
When Hilton Bali opens, it will be the third Hilton Worldwide hotel in Bali, Indonesia, joining Conrad Bali and Hilton Garden Inn Bali - Ngurah Rai Airport.
