The Anvaya Beach Resort – Bali, the very first five-star resort fully owned and managed by Santika Indonesia Hotels and Resorts, officially opened for business in November and is ready to offer its guests the highest level of luxury, infused with a Balinese touch.
Located in Kuta, Anvaya – meaning “connection” in Sanskrit – applies the island’s rich culture and history into the hotel’s décor, which is divided into three different concepts. At Anvaya’s Kunyit Restaurant, the ballroom, the nine meeting rooms and 160 Deluxe rooms, guests can soak in the deep attributes of Bali Aga (also known as Bali Mula) which is the early period of indigenous people inhabiting the island, before the Hindu Javanese moved to Bali.
Meanwhile, the Hindu Dharma Bali— referring to the invasion by the Javanese Majapahit Kingdom to Bali in the 15th century which later led to the mixed culture and belief called Synkretism or Hindu Dharma — ambience can be found in the central lobby area, the 302 Premiere rooms, eight Deluxe suites, and six Premiere suites.
Lastly, hotel guests can enjoy Balinese Modern Art at the heart of Anvaya’s ten luxurious villas, the wine cellar and The Sands Restaurant. “We wanted to expose the elements of unique Balinese architecture, a huge shaded area filled with beautiful exotic flora and a breathtaking beach, within an overall experience that was altogether more sophisticated. That is where the idea of The Anvaya came from,” Corporate General Manager for Sales and Marketing Cita Dewantoro said.
