Lagoon

The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua  Bali unveils a transformative journey that gracefully weaves architecture inspired by the  surrounding nature and indigenous culture in the storied destination after undergoing an  extensive renovation, in time for the G20 Summit. Built 30 years ago by Rajawali Property Group, The Laguna is the first international resort in Nusa Dua, portrayed as the cornerstone of Balinese  hospitality, renowned for hosting foreign presidents and dignitaries from around the world. 

“The heart of the remake of The Laguna, our very first in 2 decades, ensures that the next chapter  of the resort’s journey honors its rich indigenous heritage through stunning décor. Our timely  decision to renovate The Laguna in the midst of a global pandemic was driven by our commitment  to restore this historic icon and inspire others to rebuild Bali for the future,” said Shirley Tan,  Chief Executive Officer, Rajawali Property Group. 

“30 years ago, we welcomed the debut of The Luxury Collection brand to Bali, one of the most  popular island destinations in Indonesia with the opening of The Laguna. Since then, the resort  has offered treasured memories to discerning guests from all around the world. As we look ahead  to the optimistic return of travel, we look forward to welcoming travelers to Bali and create  memorable and distinctive experiences that are unique to this most sought-after destination,”  said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International 

The resort is an oasis with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. The guestrooms, restaurants,  and public areas have undergone a thoughtful restoration, along with an entirely revamped  arrival and lobby experience amidst pristine gardens with centuries-old trees and lush greenery.  As guests approach the resort’s lobby, the chime of a gong (a traditional cymbal instrument used  to welcome royal families) resonates, symbolizing the joy of welcoming a guest for an enriching  experience throughout their stay. 

Elevated Nautical-Inspired Interiors 

The guestrooms have been refreshed with natural materials and inspired by the collective stories  and traditions of Bali. Nautical elements take centerstage in the nuanced design, influenced by 

the resort’s seven lagoons. A color palette of neutral earthy tones ensures a balance between  traditional warmth and adds a modern touch throughout its 287 rooms, suites, and villas. 

Emblematic features such as a panel of Balinese sulaman embroidery seen in kebaya adorn the  rooms’ headboards; bespoke selection of lamps, shiplap walls, and leather detailing of a suitcase  next to the bed all come together as a nod to travel and discovery, part of the DNA of The Luxury  Collection. 

An Exquisite Epicurean Destination for Gourmands 

Banyubiru is a tribute to the unique traditional warung stalls in the villages, accompanied by the  notable use of materials such as bamboo and rattan. The all-day dining restaurant offers  breakfast and themed dinners. De Bale is a re-enactment of a quintessential Balinese village  courtyard, where authentic and iconic experiences are created. Guests can look forward to a glass  of jamu (a famed traditional drink infused with turmeric and ginger) upon arrival. As part of its  evening ritual, De Bale will showcase village dances and storytelling for all guests. With a convivial  ambiance, the theatrical lounge and bar also features an expansive entertainment terrace,  perfect for hosting private events and coffee breaks during group meetings and functions. 

The regeneration of The Laguna is a testament to the long-standing partnership between  Marriott International and Rajawali Property Group, which currently owns six Marriott properties  as well as the ultra-modern Langkawi International Convention Centre (LICC), with a total of more  than 1,157 rooms throughout properties in Malaysia and Indonesia. The latter’s distinguished  portfolio includes The St. Regis Bali Resort, The St. Regis Langkawi, and the anticipated opening  of The St. Regis Jakarta. With more than 19 brands, Marriott International currently operates 59 hotels in Indonesia, with more hotels expected to open this year. 

Perfectly timed to coincide with the much-anticipated 2022 G20 Bali Summit, The Laguna is  poised to welcome guests from around the world for all occasions from business meetings to  special events with immersive luxury in the heart of Bali.
