Ovolo Hotels expands into Indonesia with first urban resort in Bali's Kuta-Legian Area.

New York, US - Ovolo Hotels, the leading designer boutique hotel collection in Australia and Hong Kong, announces the launch of MAMAKA by Ovolo -- the first Ovolo property in Indonesia and the first outside of Hong Kong and Australia.

MAMAKA by Ovolo's design concept was spearheaded by Ara Design, incorporating vibrant colours with natural design elements to create a simple yet warm atmosphere for guests. The eclectically designed urban resort is located in the lively Kuta-Legian neighbourhood on the famous Kuta beachfront. The neighbourhood is home to various entertainment destinations and shopping centres and is most well-known for its picturesque sunsets and Kuta Beach’s renowned surf break.

“Kuta is definitely in need of something new and fresh to attract more modern and lifestyle-oriented visitors to the area through vibrant colours, design, and a focus on details,” Ara Design said. They also added, “We are very honoured to work with Ovolo Group to help develop MAMAKA in Bali and deliver an innovative and inspiring design to the Kuta neighbourhood.”

MAMAKA by Ovolo is comprised of 191 rooms and suites elegantly designed to echo the natural essence of Balinese culture. MAMAKA’s signature Swagger and Top Gun suites feature private minibars with mixology equipment so that guests can enjoy their own in-room cocktails.

Art at MAMAKA by Ovolo

MAMAKA’s main lobby features a 3D butterfly-shaped art installation by French-born, Los Angeles-based artist Punkmetender. The piece, Punkmetender's first-ever commission in Indonesia, is showcased above the hotel entrance and in the guest lounge. “I’m very thrilled to present my artworks throughout the public spaces of MAMAKA in Bali, inspired by the intersection of street art and high fashion,” says Romaine, the man behind the stage-name of Punkmetender. In addition to the art displayed in the hotel’s public spaces, each guest room at MAMAKA by Ovolo features photography by Jason Childs, one of the world's top surf photographers.

“We can’t wait to welcome back our guests and deliver the mind-blowing and unique experience in the Ovolo way,” said Joel Bartlett, General Manager of MAMAKA by Ovolo. He also added, “MAMAKA’s perfect location on Kuta Beach brings a much-needed revamp to the area and we are here to bring back the good vibrations.”

MAMAKA’s location on Kuta Beach is very well-known to surfers, with its long stretch of golden sand and breathtaking sunsets. MAMAKA by Ovolo has teamed up with Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy to provide the best surfing lessons to guests with the best ISA-certified coaches.
