Post Date: 2015-06-18
Mantra Group, the second largest accommodation operator in Australia, has announced the rebranding of The Chedi Sakala to Mantra Sakala Resort & Beach Club, Bali, as of April 2015. The property is the second in Bali for the Mantra Group, joining Peppers Sentosa Seminyak, which was added to the network in 2014.
Said Mantra Group CEO, Bob East: "Mantra Sakala Resort and Beach Club, Bali, is a great endorsement for the Mantra brand. Expansion in Indonesia is certainly one of our strategies, but we have focused on quality rather than quantity, and will continue with this approach on future development opportunities."
Mantra Group also announced the appointment of 20-year industry veteran John Berndt as General Manager, bringing new leadership for the hotel’s team and a vision for its market repositioning. John was most recently General Manager Pan Pacific Nirwana Resort then Hanging Gardens Ubud, both in Bali, after successfully contributing to hotel openings and operations as senior leadership with Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt, Starwood and Cipriani.
The 261 room resort originally opened in 2013 and commands a unique 2.4 hectare site at Tanjung Benoa on the Nusa Dua Peninsula, a region popular with Australian and European travellers seeking a luxurious, tropical experience in a stunning, absolute beachfront location; yet just a 10 minutes from the Bali Collection shopping center or a 30-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The stylish Beach
Club provides hotel guests and visitors with direct access to one of Bali's
most active beachfronts with an extensive selection of water sports including
snorkeling, diving, parasailing, kayaking and boating; while serving
international cuisine, a creative mix of contemporary cocktails and regular
entertainment. Resort facilities include 247 suites and 14 private one and two
bedroom pool villas, two swimming pools, a wellness spa, health club and lagoon
bar, restaurants, beach club, large conference facilities and kids club.
For events, Mantra Sakala provides 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting spaces, catering for up to 650 people, theatre-style. All rooms feature modern audio-visual equipment, soundproof walls, Internet access plus world-class AV and business facilities.
