Hilton, a global hospitality leader, has announced the opening of their first resort in Southeast Asia, Umana Bali, LXR Hotels & Resorts. The resort has been added to the exclusive collection of LXR Hotels & Resorts properties, which offer travellers a new taste of luxury and immersive local experiences in the world's most alluring destinations.
LXR Hotels & Resorts is known for providing bespoke services and one-of-a-kind experiences. For the Umana Bali resort, the brand has drawn inspiration from the Balinese Tri Hita Karana philosophy, which consists of three pillars: Nature, People and Spirituality. This first Hilton resort in Bali aims to offer authentic connections with nature, living crafts, and rejuvenating holistic wellness rituals to its guests. Each unique experience is inspired by traditional Balinese culture and designed to delight today's sophisticated explorers pursuing their own personal adventures.
Hilton's global mission is to be deeply committed to responsible tourism. Umana Bali Resort reflects this mission by prioritising both the local community and the environment. The resort has partnered with skilled local artisans to create a sanctuary where luxury meets responsibility. Through these partnerships, the resort has commissioned unique pieces of art, sourced local materials like exquisite Javanese marble and rattan, and developed eco-friendly amenities such as vanity kits made from recycled banana leaf paper, coconut shell boxes, and natural slippers woven from pandan and mendong fibres.
A modern interpretation of Balinese life is reflected in the architecture, landscape design, and interior decor of Umana Bali. The global design firm WATG | Wimberly Interiors has used local legends, beliefs, and customs to create a design that captures Bali's living artistry. The design elements foster a vibrant sense of community through the use of patterns and spaces. The design is a harmonious blend of natural, communal, and divine elements, which invites guests to embrace Bali's timeless dance of unity and respect.
The spacious and luxurious villas at Umana Bali offer guests a private and exclusive escape. Each villa is a minimum of 403 square meters and comes with a private infinity-edge pool and outdoor hot tub. The three-bedroom Umana Pool Villa is spread over 1,200 square meters, making it an ideal retreat for multigenerational families or groups. The property features exceptional facilities, including a contemporary chapel for clifftop weddings, beautiful event spaces, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, and a dynamic kids' club.
Wellness and wellbeing are at the forefront of Umana Bali's offerings. Lohma Spa offers a mix of personalised and holistic ancient healing traditions as well as contemporary therapies. Treatments include The Self, which resets physical energy and builds strength, and The Body, which encourages emotional release through deep relaxation techniques. The Lohma Spa's signature treatment, The Lohma Spa, is an authentic Indonesian massage that utilises energised gemstones to revitalise the body.
The Lohma Spa offers an extensive selection of treatments that can be conducted individually or collectively. Groups of various sizes can experience the power of collective sound healing, Holotropic breathwork for self-exploration and positive transformation, or cold-water immersion, which supports cardiovascular, immune, and mental health. Guests can participate in yoga, sound healing, meditation, and other activities tailored for the whole family. Little ones can enjoy dedicated pampering and relaxation, including balancing back and scalp massages, foot treatments, and "breathe into calmness," a breathing exercise followed by stretching and sound healing with a Tibetan singing bowl. Sound meditation sessions and soul blessing ceremonies are also available at The Lohma Spa or within the comfort of guests' villas.
Umana Bali is a resort that offers a variety of restaurants and bars, serving fresh and nutritious food and drinks made from locally sourced produce. The resort's Clifftop restaurant, Oliverra, takes guests on a Mediterranean journey, while Commune offers Southeast Asian cuisine with a local twist. At the Pad Pool Bar, guests can enjoy handcrafted cocktails while taking in the breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean. The Mer Lounge is a peaceful space where guests can relax while creating their own refreshments from its minibar. Uma Beach House, set to launch in April 2024, will feature a Miami-inspired design with fresh Peruvian flavours and offer a picturesque view of Melasti Beach's clear turquoise waters and soaring limestone cliffs.
At Umana Bali, guests can expect personalised service from the resort team, who curate each touchpoint to ensure a delightful stay. This first Hilton resort in Bali offers a range of experiences to discover Bali's natural beauty, such as helicopter rides for a bird's-eye view of Mount Batur's volcanic pinnacle or beachside bonfire barbecues. Guests can also engage with local Balinese people by participating in Layang Layang kite-making with a master kite builder, local cooking classes within a home kitchen, or stargazing with a resident astronomer. For those interested in holistic spiritual and wellness experiences, Umana Bali offers ceremonies, rituals, meditations, and consultations with priests and temple elders to forge genuine, meaningful connections to the Island of the Gods.
Escape to paradise at Umana Bali, the first Hilton resort in Bali, where guests can immerse themselves in the resort's exquisitely designed facilities, including a lavish spa, a sparkling swimming pool, and a range of thrilling water sports. Savour the delicious cuisine at the on-site restaurants and unwind with a refreshing cocktail at the poolside bar.
