GHM to open Chedi Sakala in Bali, Indonesia

Luxury hotel management group GHM is set to welcome its first guests on the beaches of Tanjung Benoa at the end of 2013. Occupying 5.9 acres of coastline on the Nusa Dua Peninsula, the 261-room Chedi Sakala will be GHM's third property to debut on Bali.

Located on the northern tip of the peninsula, a 30-minute drive from Kuta, The Chedi Sakala will have 247 suites and 14 private one- and two-bedroom pool villas, two swimming pools, a wellness spa, health club and lagoon bar. A Kids' Club will cater to youngsters, leaving parents free to explore the destination's coastline, water sports and local attractions.

A ballroom, catering service and four private dining areas with beachfront views will be on offer for corporate events and weddings. Neighboring the resort grounds is Sakala Bali, a 150-seat contemporary French fine dining restaurant. Already operational, Sakala Bali and its outdoor tapas area maintain direct access to the Benoa beach.

Leading the group's newest five-star venture as its GM is Australian hotelier Evan Pavlakis.

The resort follows a precedent set by GHM's two properties on the island, The Legian Bali in Seminyak and The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud. Also on the Nusa Dua Peninsula, GHM has partnered with Singapore's Sinni Villas to build the Chedi Nusa Penida in Crystal Bay. The 100-villa resort is scheduled to open in 2015.
