U.K.- based Contiki Resorts have reportedly teamed up with Bali's tourism mogul Kadek Wirantha to operate an 133-room action-oriented property on a 2.7 hectare site in Seminyak, near Bali's famed night life and entertainment areas.
Although officially unconfirmed, the Contiki Bali Resort is widely believed to be the former Hotel Saphir, now operating as the Paradise Seminyak Hotel & Spa. The Hotel was recently acquired by Wirantha who owns Air Paradise International, hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues in Bali.
The Contiki Concept
Located within walking distance of Seminyak Beach, the hotel, which is undergoing extensive renovation, will boast a large swim-up bar, water lounges, spas, and music provided by roving DJ's working various venues throughout the Resort. Trendy bars and restaurants catering to the tastes of younger travelers will be on offer together with a cinema showing latest film releases.
Young and enthusiastic Contiki Action Planners (CAPs) will be on duty throughout the Resort organizing and supervising tennis, aerobics, pilates classes, yoga sessions, table tennis, volleyball sessions, and activities at a well-equipped health club.
The renovated property is expected to open its doors under the Contiki brand's banner on September 1, 2005.
