Marriott has opened the 207-room Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, the brand’s first hotel in Indonesia. 

The hotel, which is owned by Alam Bali International, is near Bali’s Bukit peninsula. 

“Renaissance Bali Uluwatu & Spa is bound to offer an unexpected and local lens on this stunning destination,” Mike Fulkerson, VP, brand & marketing, Marriott International Asia Pacific, said in a statement. “Rather than simply suggesting the popular beaches, the brand’s Navigator may recommend exploring the iconic Uluwatu Temple at sunset to experience a daily fire dancing performance, telling the Hindu legend of Prince Rama. That’s the kind of spontaneous discovery that ignites the senses and really inspires stories worth retelling.”

The new Renaissance hotel is the latest addition to Marriott’s portfolio of more than 160 Renaissance hotels worldwide. Another 15 new hotels under the brand are slated to open in Asia-Pacific within the next two years. The next Renaissance hotel slated to open in Asia-Pacific this year is the Renaissance Taipei Shihlin Hotel—the brand’s first hotel in Taiwan—in June.

This recent Renaissance addition comes just before several new location openings this year. In Europe, the Renaissance Warsaw Airport Hotel is opening in spring 2018 while the Renaissance Schiphol Airport Hotel will open soon after in November 2018. The Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown Hotel in Pennsylvania is the next hotel to open in spring 2018 in the U.S., followed by the Renaissance New York Chelsea South Hotel in 2019 and the 200-room Renaissance Harlem Hotel in 2020.
