The new resort will be operated under a management contract signed with owning company PT Crystal Development on 4 July 2014.
Located on the bayfront on the southern peninsula of Nusa Dua, one of Bali’s prime tourism destinations, the resort is set amongst lush green mangroves and has immediate access to the ocean.
“We are very proud to be announcing the opening of Centara Crystal On The Bay Nusa Dua, a new property featuring an innovative architectural design that will become a landmark on the bayfront at Nusa Dua,” says Thirayuth Chirathivat, chief executive officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts.
“Bali is a destination that is of great strategic importance to us, and we are honoured that PT Crystal Development has the confidence in Centara’s international skills and profile to manage this very fine property.”
Centara’s existing properties in Bali are Centara Grand Nusa Dua Villas, and Centra Taum Seminyak Bali.
“Centara Crystal On The Bay Nusa Dua is a great creative concept and is ideally located on the Nusa Dua coast,” says Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts.
“This beautiful property will allow us to offer yet another type of Balinese experience to our guests, and will further raise our international profile in the very important Bali market.”
The newly built resort is a six-storey structure that faces the bay of Nusa Dua, with Nusa Dua Beach easily accessible within a 20 minute scenic boat ride or 10 minutes by car.
The resort will have 210 rooms, with options including Deluxe, Suites, Pool Suites, and Jacuzzi Suites, with a choice of rooms suitable for families.
Each room has its own private balcony, with room sizes ranging from 37.7 square metres to 147.5 square metres.
The rooftop will feature an infinity pool and terrace, along with a rooftop restaurant and bar that with the dramatic bay views will be an attractive feature for both hotel guests and outside visitors.
The resort will feature a Spa Cenvaree, two swimming pools, a pool bar, an all-day dining restaurant, meetings facilities, and a Kids’ Club that features a zone for the youngsters and an E-Zone for the teens.
A wedding chapel will also be sited on the rooftop, where the terrace will provide a catered reception area against a picture perfect background.
Nearby attractions accessible by boat include Pulau Penyu and Tanjung Benoa, both only 10 minutes away, while Serangan is 20 minutes by boat.
Access to the airport via the tollway takes only 20 minutes.
