SereS Hotels & Resorts opened the SereS Springs Resort & Spa in Bali on October 7, and is aiming to grow its SereS and SenS brands domestically.
Its opening follows the success of the 97-room SenS Hotel & Spa Ubud Town Centre which opened a few years ago.
Located in the village of Singakerta, south of Ubud, SereS Springs Resort & Spa has 60 rooms and suites. Another 20 villas are expected to be added to the inventory by the end of the month.
Meeting facilities at the resort include two ballrooms, a corporate meeting room for 24 pax, a pavilion for receptions which can hold up to 26 guests, and a yoga bale for 18 yogis or 26 guests for cocktails.
The grand ballroom â€“ which can be divided into two smaller venues â€“ also comes with a pre-function foyer, and can hold up to 450 guests theatre-style. Meanwhile, the junior ballroom can also be divisible by two, with capacity for 200 guests.
Teck Thai Heng, managing director of SereS Hotels & Resorts, said: â€œWe are confident that SereS Springs Resort & Spa, Singakerta, will be a new icon in Ubud and be quickly recognised as one of Bali island’s leading business events destination, a family-friendly resort and a most unique wedding venue set among Ubud’s padi fields with easterly views of Bali’s revered mountains.”
Teck adds that he expects business events would contribute 30 per cent of the hotel revenue.
Other facilities at the SereS Spring Resort & Spa include two large swimming pools with 46 lounge chairs, a hospitality lounge, spa, fitness centre, kidsâ€™ club and video lounge, and three F&B outlets.
