Swiss-Belhotel proudly announces the launch of its Māua brand with the first property, Māua Nusa Penida, Indonesia, scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2022.
Māua – is the brand name that is adopted from the Maori culture, a New Zealand heritage developed as a special label for the hotels that display a special relationship with the environment. Built around the idea of togetherness, connecting the strength of people and nature, Māua Nusa Penida focuses on being environmentally friendly, aiming at reducing the carbon footprint, classified as a natural habitat, and surrounded by natural elements. Nusa Penida is a small island off the southeast coast of the main island of Bali, next to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan.
Quickly becoming one of Bali’s most popular attractions, this island paradise is a world away from high-paced city life. The island of Nusa Penida is just 40 minutes by speed boat from Sanur, Bali. Here visitors can explore the stunning vast highlands and roam around the spectacular beaches decorating the edges of the island. Beyond the hills and beaches, is the fantastic marine life breeding in the pristine seas encircling the island. Māua Nusa Penida will feature 25 villas offering the perfect setting for forging a connection with beauty, romance, nature, and island lifestyle. The property highlights natural elements, by combining concrete modernist architecture, the original limestone terraces, and Nusa Penida flora across the iconic landscaped terraces and gardens, which accentuate the natural beauty of the island. The resort creates a range of amenities for ultimate relaxation such as spacious One-Bedroom Luxury Villas, One-Bedroom Suite, and Two-Bedroom Suite with living room and wide-open windows that give way to a private pool and magnificent views of Gamat Bay.
There are many other gems to unveil in and around Nusa Penida, such as Crystal Bay, Diamond Beach, Broken Beach, and Kelingking Beach, with the latter recently selected as the “Most Instagrammable Beach” in 2021. The Teletubbies Hill, a vast open green hill situated about 11 kilometers to the southeast of Kelingking Beach, is another must-visit spot. Nusa Penida is also known for its coral reefs surrounding the island which house some of the most unique sea creatures in the whole world, providing a special experience for divers and snorkelers.
There are a lot of activities for guests to enjoy at the resort, from cooking classes, yoga and meditation, to relaxing at the Kōwhai Restaurant and Aroha Bar are designed to offer uniquely crafted organic dishes and beverages that are both healthy and tantalizing to the taste buds. “This latest upscale brand offers inspiring and unique experiences by focusing on wellness, peace and tranquility in an exclusive and eco-friendly setting. I am delighted to have the first property open in Indonesia as the launch pad of the Group’s new brand, Māua. With its unique blend of establishing sustainability, environmental preservation and cultural understanding, the guests will be able to experience the unity of the elements of Nature creating an abode where the experiences of life can flourish.” commented Emmanuel Guillard, Swiss-Belhotel International Senior Vice President of Operations and Development.
