Renaissance Hotels unveils its latest resort on the Island of the Gods – Hospitality Net
RenaissanceaHotels in nce, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary hotel brands, unveils its second property on the Isle of the Gods with the opening of Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort. Perched in the hills above Nusa Dua and overlooking breathtaking views of the verdant canopy and Indian Ocean, the new resort features 310 stylish rooms and four themed pools, meant to welcome travelers to discover unexpected gems in the tropical destination.
Drawing inspiration from the great theatricality of traditional Balinese dances, especially the Barong dance, the design of the Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort pays homage to one of the island’s oldest performing arts forms. The newly opened resort is an ode to the richness of Balinese culture, brought to life by the meticulous design work of P49 Deedesign. Created as sacred rituals and for entertainment, traditional Balinese dance routines are heavily influenced by nature and guests can experience these highlights in the “Good versus Evil” murals and prints at the R Bar, the vibrant design industrial style at the Backstage, as well as the charming dance patterns adorning the backdrop of the ballroom.
The 310 rooms and suites are carefully designed to pay homage to the island’s heritage – with a Balinese mask motif on the ceiling, a modern invention of the ‘Balinese dancer’s head’ gobo light, and turquoise-accented walls for a feeling of calm. Offering stunning views of the island, the elegant rooms are perfectly designed and feature spacious bathrooms. A tribute to the island’s natural elements, decorative wall ceramic adorns the walls to enhance the appearance of the space, with a freestanding ivory tub as the centerpiece.
Anchoring the six mouth-watering food and drink experiences at the resort is In the wings, an all-day restaurant offering a wide selection of local and international dishes in its buffet and live stations. Lion x is a contemporary Chinese restaurant offering innovative offerings such as Dim Sum as well as Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine with a modern twist. The authentic Indonesian restaurant, Nusantara by Locavore, highlights the culinary heritage of the country with a fresh look at its regional cuisines. A pottery workshop and a cooking laboratory during the day, Tanah Liat transforms in the evening into an arts and crafts inspired restaurant featuring fresh seasonal seafood and plant-based cuisines. Atomic 17 is the resort’s pool bar serving fresh juices and smoothies as well as purist cocktails throughout the day. Integrating the hall and the living room, R bar is where patrons can relax over handcrafted cocktails, cold brew coffee and more by an expert mixologist and barista. As part of the signature program of Evenings at the Renaissance – a ritual that inaugurates the transition from day to nightfall – the R Bar transforms into an elevated place where guests and locals can mingle and mingle around a full program of cocktails and live music every evening.
Guests can relax at The spa wellness center with treatments inspired by the art of the Balinese healing method or follow their fitness program in the 24-hour gym. Featuring four themed pools, the main pool is located across the lobby while the jungle pool mimics the natural beauty for which the island is famous – crowned with lush greenery and along a artificial waterfall. The lagoon-like jungle pool is also where The handle is located, a beautiful wedding venue with a walkway extending to the heart of the pool.
The resort offers 12,055 square feet of flexible reception space to host events for any special occasion. Fully equipped with advanced audiovisual capabilities, the Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 1,100 people. Perfect for business meetings, the resort has five function rooms and a maximum of seven breakout rooms. Renaissance Hotels’ REN meeting program includes a dedicated event team committed to delivering seamless event experiences.

The complex also showcases the spirit of the neighborhood through its unexpected design and local collaborations. At the resort, all front office associates, navigators and Rbar Ambassadors wear outfits designed by renowned designer Paul Ropp, Bali’s iconic fashion house, with bright, vibrant colors that match the resort design and reflect the Balinese culture.
