Japan-based hotel brand Nikko is back to Bali after closing a former property two years ago. The newHotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach officially opened its doors to the public on March 8.

Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co Ltd, has the opening of Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach. This marks the return of the Hotel Nikko brand in Indonesia two years after the closure of a previous Hotel Nikko property in Nusa Dua, Bali.

Approximately 15 kilometers away from the International Airport Ngurah Rai, Tanjung Benoa used to be a fishing village before evolving into an enclave that now houses exclusive resorts, villas, and water-sport operators – which is what the peninsula is famous for.

Merely steps away from Tanjung Benoa shores, Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach offers 188 spacious guest rooms and suites decorated in a contemporary Balinese style and fully-equipped with modern comfort. Complemented by a selection of bars and restaurants, an impressive lagoon swimming pool, and a spa, the hotel promises an ideal retreat for its guests to soothe the mind, body, and soul while keeping active with the variety of activities that guests can do within the area. Family travellers can enjoy a complete holiday with specially designed family rooms, and kids friendly facilities.

Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach is managed by Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co Ltd, which has an ambitious plan to expand its global portfolio to 100 properties, primarily in the fast-growing Asian region.

Indonesia welcomed over 12 million foreign arrivals during the previous year, reflecting the steady growth of the Indonesian tourism market. Over four million tourists visited Bali during the first eight months of 2017, an almost 120% year-on-year increase. The country is projected to further invest in infrastructure to surpass 20 million foreign tourists by the beginning of 2020, promising steady market growth.

Okura Nikko Hotels is already present in ASEAN countries in Bangkok, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The chain will add another property in Ho Chi Minh City and in Haiphong in 2020; a new property is due to open this year in Bangkok and in Manila while a brand new Nikko property will be available in Phnom Penh in 2020.
