In pictures: Bali welcomes first Hoshinoya resort outside of Japan
HOSHINO RESORTS INC launched its first property outside of Japan in Ubud overlooking the picturesque Pakerisan River.
Pretty water canals run throughout Hoshinoya Bali, and is a part of the island’s age-old water temple network recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Landscape.
Meanwhile, the surrounding rainforest, terraced rice paddy fields, crisp mountain air, and nearby Hindu temples lend the property a “faraway sanctuary” feel.
Within the hotel, there are three types of luxury private villas, each enveloped in river valleys and connecting to the semi-private pool area where guests can descend to from the terrace of their villa.
The pool water changes color and temperature throughout the day, providing guests a different experience with every swim.
As practiced in Japan with traditional Japanese culture, the resort in Bali is a rich display of local cultures and craftsmanship.
Fumi Miyauchi, director of the company’s global marketing department, told TTG Asia, “The new Bali property will reflect some Japanese elements, but the aim is to focus largely on the local culture and to take advantage of that.”
She added, “We are based in Japan and are developing properties here, but we are also keen to increasingly take the Hoshino Resorts brand to more overseas markets.”
