Building upon its already strong presence in Indonesia—from its first luxury resort in Bintan to its Ungasan property on the southern tip of Bali, Banyan Tree has announced five new hotels as part of its regional expansion.
With the upcoming properties, guests can expect to immerse themselves in the beautiful nature and cultural diversity of the archipelago, which is home to more than 17,000 islands. In the pipeline, there’s Banyan Tree Nipah, Lombok, Angsana Saranam, Bali, as well as the hospitality group’s new brand extension Banyan Tree Escape—comprising three hideaway resorts in the provinces of Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and North Sumatra.
The first to welcome guests in 2021 is the 82-room Angsana Saranam in Bali, a wellness retreat featuring an Angsana Spa, alongside facilities like a multifunctional activity centre, Movement Space and Vitality Pool for hydrotherapy and aqua activities. An organic farm on-site will also offer farm-to-table dining experiences.
Also debuting in the same year is the group’s first Banyan Tree Escape in Ubud, Bali, boasting a “no walls, no doors” concept. Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living, the property offers a sanctuary where “the basics of food, sleep and in-resort interaction” will be reinvented. As such, guests can look forward to an urban detox in the heart of nature.
Come 2022, Banyan Tree Nipah will open in Lombok, featuring 72 rooms including suites and villas complete with infinity pools. Set against the sea, the luxury beach resort’s three dining venues will offer views of the sunset, as well as Mount Agung. Guests can expect to enjoy the signature Banyan Tree Spa experience, along with wellness suites and hydrothermal facilities—a first in Lombok.
Acknowledging the newfound desire for wellbeing and sustainability in post-pandemic times, the group hopes to create new experiences and adventures for its guests to dive into.
