The hotel’s 247 suites each offer a minimum of 624 square feet and include a kitchenette. The two-bedroom, ocean-view suites have up to 1,615 square feet of space and include 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.
For dining, the property has The Restaurant, offering Asian and European cuisines. The dining area overlooks the lagoon pool, which is accessible also from the ground-floor Cabana Suites. The hotel also has an open-air lobby bar with views of the ocean and Sakala Bali’s beachfront infinity pool.
Among the resort’s other attributes is the spa facility, which is expected to debut this spring. Upon entry, guests will make their way underground, via an 59-foot spiral staircase, to a reception area surrounded by eight treatment rooms.
For events, The Chedi Ballroom occupies 6,781 square feet below The Restaurant. It is connected to a foyer accented by marble pillars and features low-slung ceilings and earth-tone designs. 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. Construction on The Chedi Ballroom, Kids’ Club and Club Lounge is scheduled to wrap before April.
The Chedi Sakala opens its doors on Bali as the third hotel on the island managed by GHM, complementing the Legian in Seminyak and The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud.
