InterContinental Bali Resort is proud to launch their 'Rooms With A Soul' where tradition meets luxury. The 5-star resort sits alongside the golden sandy beaches of Jimbaran Bay and is complete with five swimming pools, award-winning restaurants and an internationally-acclaimed spa.
InterContinental Bali Resort is renowned for showcasing the best of Bali, with the essential components of Balinese Hindu philosophies, imagery and symbolism prevalent throughout its design. The Resort follows the principals of ‘Tri Hita Karana’, which is the balance and harmony between the three sources of life, humans, nature and God, while the architecture also honours the sacred axis between the holy mountain and the sea. InterContinental Bali Resort now continues this tradition with a comprehensive guestroom re-design program, which sets new standards for luxury accommodation in Bali and introduces world-class technology.
Michel Chertouh, Regional General Manager for Bali Resorts, IHG, said, “As one of the iconic resort properties for IHG, InterContinental Bali, the design of the new rooms has been conceived to bring the ‘Soul of Bali’ to life with features such as hand-painted batik prints and intricate wood carvings, coupled with personalised technologies that will set new standards in Bali.”
The rooms’ most unique features are the full-wall mural paintings inspired by designs found on Balinese textiles. The bedhead backdrops feature carved wood headboard panels with geometric lattice patterns typical of those seen on traditional Balinese doorways. An impressive, circular carved artefact features prominently in each room, mounted on the fabric-panelled accent wall of each lounge area. The pendant lamps are a signature of the new InterContinental Bali guestrooms and suites, inspired by the elaborate terracotta crown finials of traditional Balinese thatched roofs.
The crafted furniture has been carefully designed to complement the hotel’s classic, vernacular architecture, while also conveying a timeless, tropical aesthetic. Indonesian wood from sustainable sources is widely used, and is combined with eye-catching accents such as tropical hardwood veneers, lacquered tobacco leaf and faux-shagreen while the hand-tufted wool rugs are characterised by local patterns. The rooms are completed with thoughtfully curated thematic paintings depicting Balinese Legong dancers.
