The design-savvy Ovolo Group is showing no signs of slowing down with the company welcoming its first property in Indonesia; a stylish urban resort, opening later this year.

Mamaka by Ovolo will be the first hotel outside of its Australian and Hong Kong offerings, located right on the beachfront of Bali’s bustling and rejuvenated Kuta.

Having purchased the Citadines Kuta Beach Bali late last year, Ovolo Group will transform the existing structure into an urban resort.

“This urban resort will bring a killer experience to Kuta adding to its already and growing vibe.”

This new resort joins this distinctive collection of hotels which includes Nishi Apartments Canberra Australia, Mojo Nomad Aberdeen Harbour Hong Kong and soon to launch The Sheung Wan Central Hong Kong, expected in April 2020.

Heavily inspired by its island home, Mamaka by Ovolo has merged the global brand ethos of Ovolo – that of vibrant, dynamic spaces – with ancient Balinese culture. In fact, that’s exactly what the name refers to – In ancient Pali language, ‘mamaka’ refers to one who shows affection not only for oneʼs self.

An ode to Bali, the hotel’s design has embraced vibrant colours and traditional Balinese textiles like kebaya baju, alongside natural materials, ample weaving, bold patterns, and lantern effect lighting. Karlyn Cerdeña is apt in her description of the new Kuta haunt; “Vibrant. Dynamic. Playful Bali. Be. Here. Now.”

Food & Beverage Dining Concept

The food and drink experience will be innovative and bring a new culinary dynamic to the Kuta precinct. The first of its kind on the island is the highest rooftop pool club with 270-degree views of the Bali’s western beaches from Jimbaran to Canggu and beyond.

In terms of amenities, the urban resort isn’t lacking. Alongside the convenience of all-day bar and dining venues, utilising its position on Kuta’s beachfront, home to the island’s best surf break for beginners and recreational surfers, there will also be an in-house surf school.

A fresh take on a wellness centre adds to the Mamaka experience boasting a horizontal climbing wall, circuit training mechanical surfboard for core strength among other features. Those after a more leisurely experience can enjoy the innovative take on the unisex salon – think bubbles and blow, negroni and nails or barber and bourbon.

That’s it, we’re going! *books flights to Bali for 2021*

“Convention was not considered, this is our take on a resort. It will be a playground for travellers through food and drink with attitude, wellness and activities, a surf school and shop, and a little self-indulgence – they won’t want to leave!”

Girish Jhunjhnuwala, Founder & CEO of Ovolo Group.

Mamaka by Ovolo will open its doors in late 2020.
