One of Southeast Asia’s most renowned resorts, The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah Ubud, is set to anchor the ambitions of a brand new hotel management group, Hadiprana Hospitality. The formal handover from the resort’s longtime operator, Singapore-based GHM, is set to take place on January 1st, 2020.
The rebranded property will be called Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana. Both the group and the resort are named for the late Hendra Hadiprana. He is a legendary Indonesian architect and designer, whose hands have fashioned some of the country’s most acclaimed properties. Some of his works are including the InterContinental Bali Resort, the Legian Bali, and the five hectare-property moored in the lush rice fields of Ubud.
Since opening in July 2004, The Chedi Club has won renown as one of the most sublime resort experiences in Southeast Asia. That recognition partly for its design appeal and setting in the rice fields of Ubud and spectacular Kecak dance performed twice a week on the property by a troupe from a neighboring village. As well as for the estate’s expansive art collection. The resort also has garnered dozens of major awards over the past 15 years. Most recently are a listing this year by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the 16 Best Hotels in Bali.
Indeed, such was and is the fraternal feeling between Hadiprana and GHM that the two organizations are now mulling the possibility of a collaboration in the near future. The new hospitality venture is rising on the foundation of a business Hadiprana founded more than 60 years ago, immediately upon his return to Indonesia from a course of studies in architecture and design in Holland in 1957. Those interests today include initiatives in retail, education, design consulting and art, all under the umbrella of a firm called, simply, Hadiprana.
