The Chedi Sakala, Bali


By Sara Liss
Resorts Expert, about.com
[post_ads_2] GHM, the management group behind the famous Legian in Seminyak and The Chedi Club in Ubud, has unveiled a third resort in Bali where clever use of space and great food are key draws.
Located in the former fishing village of Tanjung Benoa in Nusa Dua on the southeastern coast, half an hour from the new international airport terminal, the design-driven Chedi Sakala injects a dose of sophistication into a region dominated by family-friendly resorts.

Each of the hotel’s 247 suites are spacious and include a kitchenette. The two-bedroom, ocean-view suites deliver up to 150 square metres and feature a separate living room, dining room and walk-in pantry. Infinity pools with built-in whirlpools and full kitchens highlight each of the 14, two-story pool villas.
Beyond the generous personal space, the hotel is sharpening a reputation as one of Bali’s most rarified dining experiences. A harbinger of its lofty ambitions, Sakala Bali opened on the resort’s grounds two years ago and quickly garnered acclaim for dishes that marry local product with French culinary sensibilities, per the expertise of Quebec-born Executive Chef Frederic Boulay (who also happens to make the best burger Bali, according to local lore).

As a complement and a fledgling rival to Sakala Bali for in-house guest affection, The Restaurant is positioning itself as the preeminent address for Asian and European staples. Half the menu is dedicated to the interpretation of favorites from Indonesia, India, Thailand, China and Japan, while the other half is based on beloved bites from the Mediterranean and the south of France.

The dining area overlooks the lagoon pool, which is accessible also from the ground-floor Cabana Suites. The hotel also features a sleek, open-air lobby bar with views of the ocean and Sakala Bali’s beachfront infinity pool.

[post_ads]The destination itself is one of Bali’s most enticing new lures. Long the province of fishing boats and downscale accommodation, the charms of this peninsula, from its unrivaled access to water sports activities to its proximity to the island’s oldest Chinese temple, are set to seduce upscale guests. Tanjung Benoa was a sleepy peninsula of fishing villages until a few years ago; now the area's restaurants compete with the best of Bali. Bali Bumbu was the pioneer, a hands-on Balinese cooking school that has become one of the island’s most popular tourist attractions since it opened in 1997. In nearby Nusa Dua, the Museum Pasifika offers a splendid collection of paintings and sculptures by foreign artists who have lived in the region (Paul Gauguin, Miguel Covarrubias, Donald Friend). The iconic Uluwatu temple is a short drive away, near some of the most famous surfing beaches in the world, such as Padang-Padang — which is also ideal for lazing away a sunny day.

“We feel we're really drawing the curtain on something fresh in Tanjung Benoa," said Evan Pavlakis, The Chedi Sakala's general manager. "And together with our highly regarded sister hotels in Seminyak (The Legian) and Ubud (The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah), we're providing even greater entree to the multi-faceted appeal of Bali and its singular enclaves.”

Among the resort’s more dazzling attributes is the spa facility, which is expected to debut this spring behind The Restaurant. Upon entry, guests will make their way underground, via an 18-metre spiral staircase, to a reception area surrounded by eight treatment rooms filled with the aroma of frangipani petals.

Another distinguished space, The Chedi Ballroom, occupies 630 square metres below The Restaurant. It is connected to a foyer accented by stout, marble pillars and features low-slung ceilings and warm, earth-tone design flourishes. As versatile as it is visually appealing, the space divides into six meeting rooms to accommodate all manner of MICE events.

The venue is in the same structure as the hotel’s secondary lobby, Kids’ Club and Club Lounge, which provides guests with club benefits the opportunity to check in and out privately.

Though the hotel itself is new to Bali, the management is not. The Chedi Sakala opens its doors on Bali as the third hotel on the island managed by GHM, complementing the renowned Legian in Seminyak and The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud.

As such, the new hotel on Tanjung Benoa is GHM’s most expansive property to date, and a brand new opportunity for larger groups bent on the sophistication of a GHM experience.
