International hotel group Kempinski Hotels has partnered with PT Agung Alam Anugrah to manage a new luxury resort on Lombok Island, Indonesia.

Located in a secluded bay on the south-western coast of the island, the new resort will cover an area of 14.3ha.

Set to open in 2027, the Apurva Kempinski Lombok resort will have 200 suites and villas.  

It will feature an integrated spa and wellness facility centre, five dining venues, an outdoor party lawn and meeting space for different events.

Kempinski Group CEO and chairman of the management board Bernold Schroeder said: “The southern coast of Lombok is an unspoiled paradise, a land before time where lush hillsides and awe-inspiring bays are surrounded by some of the clearest tropical waters in Southeast Asia.

“We are thrilled to be partnering again with PT Teluk Agung Alami to open The Apurva Kempinski Lombok, which promises to be one of the most outstanding resorts in Indonesia.”

According to Kempinski, the resort is part of a wider mixed-used development, which will house around ten hotels and resorts on the Mekaki Beach in Lombok.

The development will also feature an organic farm, a ranch, and an equestrian centre.

Furthermore, the development plan also aligns with the Indonesian government’s tourism growth drive in the country, with focus on four areas including Lombok.

Schroeder added: “The resort will complement the already successful The Apurva Kempinski Bali, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable island-hopping adventure across two spectacular destinations.

“This new signing reinforces our position as a steadily expanding hotel management group with outstanding properties and reflects our grand ambitions for the region.”

In February 2019, Kempinski opened the luxury hotel, The Apurva Kempinski Bali, in Nusa Dua, Bali.

Last month, the company announced that the luxury five-star Kempinski Hotel & Resort Yanbu in western Saudi Arabia will open later this year.
