GHM widens Indonesian presence

GHM is strengthening its foothold in Indonesia with an agreement to manage The Chedi Nusa Penida, a 100-villa resort scheduled to open in 2015 on a secluded island ten kilometers southeast of Bali.

Developed by Singapore's Sinni Villas, the exclusive enclave on Nusa Penida will occupy a sloped hillside overlooking Crystal Bay. Construction of the singular project is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013.

To bring to life Spanish designer Ismael Pindado's vision of the elevated, egg-shaped villas — a concept inspired by Nusa Penida’s standing as a bird sanctuary — Sinni Villas hired Cubillo Y Esteban, a Madrid-based engineering firm.

The plan for The Chedi Nusa Penida also calls for private helicopter and yacht services, with each villa boasting Indian Ocean views. The villas are also available for purchase.

GHM currently operates eight luxury hotels worldwide, including two on Bali: The Legian in Seminyak and The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud.

The Chedi Nusa Penida is one of Chedis GHM plans to launch in the next three years. The Chedi Club Suzhou (China) and The Chedi Andermatt (Switzerland) are expected to open in 2013. The other properties scheduled to open by 2015 include The Chedi Tamouda Bay (Morocco), The Chedi Taiping Lake (China) and The Chedi Khorfakkan in Sharjah (UAE).
