Fairmont Hotels & Resorts today announced it has been appointed to manage an all-suite beachfront resort in Bali, Indonesia. Scheduled to commence operation as Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali by December 2014, it is currently the Regent Bali and is owned by PT Pancaran Kreasi Adiprima. The addition to Fairmont's luxury hotel portfolio comes ahead of the opening of Fairmont Jakarta early next year, and a second Fairmont property planned for Bali in 2016.

Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali is located along 200m of Sanur's pristine golden beach on the southern part of the island. Set amid four hectares of lush tropical gardens, it is 25 minutes from the Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Luxury accommodation at Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali comes in the form of 94 suites and 26 pool villas that are available in one, two and three bedroom configurations. Food and beverage offerings include two restaurants and a lobby lounge that offers unparalleled views of the grounds and ocean beyond. Other facilities range from a 55m infinity-edged lap pool and a well-equipped fitness centre to an expansive spa and kid's club.

This will be one of two properties Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will manage on what is commonly referred to as Island of Gods. The second is Fairmont Bali, slated to open in 2016 and perched on a bluff along the southern coast.

"Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali is our first resort to open in Indonesia and it promises to be a slice of paradise on an island that is already highly acclaimed for its picturesque ambiance and dazzling beaches," said Jennifer Fox, president, FRHI International and Fairmont Brand. "Bali remains one of Southeast Asia's leading tourist destinations and we are very pleased that our portfolio in this part of the world continues to grow at a steady and strategic pace. This announcement follows recently signed agreements to open new hotels in Kuala Lumpur and across China - Nanning, Suzhou and Zhengzhou - and we are targeting additional expansion in top cities and resort locations throughout Asia in the future."

The mystical isle of Bali needs no introduction. One of the more than 17,000 islands that make up the Indonesian archipelago, it offers visitors a beautiful and diverse natural environment, ranging from stepped rice paddies, lakes, volcanoes and beaches, to a rich and varied culture reflecting Hindu, European and Indigenous influences.

A leading destination in Southeast Asia, Bali's tourist figures have been nothing less than impressive. In 2013, it welcomed 3.27 million direct foreign tourists, an increase of 13.3 percent from 2012, and surpassed the provincial tourism agency's target of 3.1 million.

Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali will join the growing portfolio of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Asia, including Fairmont Singapore, Fairmont Makati, Fairmont Beijing, Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai, Kunshan's Fairmont Yangcheng Lake and Fairmont Nanjing.
