Jumeirah Group, the Dubai luxury operator which manages the Burj Al Arab, is to open a resort on the island of Bali in Indonesia.
The resort, Jumeriah Bali, is expected to open in 2015, the group announced today.
Jumeirah Bali will be located on a beach at the southern tip of the Jimbaran District, next to a new golf course.
It is designed to have 80 suites and 25 private villas.
The hospitality group, which is part of Dubai Holding, has enjoyed a series of openings in the past year, after many of its projects abroad stalled or slowed as developers were affected by the global economic crisis.
It opened its Jumeriah at Etihad Towers hotel in Abu Dhabi in November and recently took over the Grand Hotel via Veneto in Rome. It also launched two resorts in the Maldives last year.
Jumeirah has one hotel open in the Asia region, which is the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel, Shanghai. That property also opened last year.
The company has a further five luxury hotels under development in China and a hotel under development in Thailand.
