Sofitel To Bring A Luxury Resort to Bali
The tiny Indonesian island of Bali sure does turn out the best of the best when it comes to super luxurious properties for travelers looking for the ultimate tropical retreat. The elegant Sofitel will once again grace its shores with a new hotel on the horizon.
Scheduled to open in September of 2013, the luxury resort will be on the shores of one of Bali's most affluent areas Nusa Dua, is home to one five-star resort after another. The Sofitel will join the likes of Westin, Hyatt and Hilton.
Boasting a considerable 398 rooms and 17 private villas, this property won't be 'small chips'. Built around a series of infinity pools (that's what Bali is about, right?), the entire hotel will be just steps away from the sandy beaches of the Bali Sea, yet far enough away from the busy entertainment districts of Kuta and Seminyak. The private villas will all feature sea-views--great to capture sunsets like the one above.
This is not the first Accor Hotel on the island since the hotel group has about 12 properties across the region catering to all budgets. As for the Sofitel brand, this hotel will technically be the second, but the first is located on the other side of Bali in Denpasar in the Seminyak area and has since turned into an MGallery, the boutique brand of the hotel group.
