Thailand-based ONYX Hospitality Group has announced that it was appointed to operate a 435-room property on the Indonesian island of Bali. Amari Pecatu is a joint venture between STA Group Property Division and PR Bali Pecatu Graha.
This will be ONYX's first step for expansion into Indonesia for the Amari brand. The property is scheduled to open in 2015.
Located on the southern peninsula of Bali, Pecatu is well-known as a surfer's paradise with limestone cliffs and secluded beaches. Amari Pecatu will be part of the 400-hectare Pecatu Indah Resort, an integrated development with planned facilities including a shopping mall and conference venues that can accommodate up to 12,000 people. It is already home to an 18-hole golf course, designed by golf architect Ronald Fream.
Amari Pecatu will feature 385 deluxe rooms, 10 junior suites and 40 villas ranging from 54 square meters (581 square feet) to 400 square meters (4,305 square feet) in size. All accommodation options offer the choice between two views, the green of the fairway or the panoramic vista of the Indian Ocean.
The design concept for Amari Pecatu is a collaboration between Bangkok based Open Air Studio and Broadway Malyan.
The resort will offer a selection of dining options, including two destination restaurants, a lounge and bar, sea view swimming pool, Breeze Spa, gymnasium, as well as a retail area within the central reception area. For those wishing to plan a special occasion, the resort will also provide a range of options for weddings and events.
Amari Pecatu will also offer investment opportunities for those wishing to purchase a holiday home. In return for an initial investment, owners will then receive a host of privileges including annual rights of stay and guaranteed rental returns.
