Translated from German, Zeitgeist means "the spirit of the moment", and is the key principle underpinning AYANA's service philosophy. Here, we share our inside tips and favorite haunts to help you experience the AYANA Zeitgeist.
So yes the rumor has it. What you heard is true. We have completed a renovation of over 200 hotel rooms and suites, resulting in a major upgrade to guest comfort, amenities and overall experience with stylish new interiors and brand new furniture and decor.
The renovation has upgraded all categories of rooms in the Hotel, from standard rooms through to ocean suites and the privileged Club Floor. The design and style is a mix of both Balinese and modern architecture. Canopied beds and furniture featuring intricate carvings by Balinese artisans, traditional textiles such as batik bed runners, beautiful artworks crafted in villages around the island, plush sofas and cozy daybeds on balconies combine to provide an intimate sanctuary immersed in Balinese ambience. The earthy and torquoise tones of the duvet covers and throw cushions add splashes of color to the chic, neutral furnishings and natural woods.
Modern elements are evident in marble floors, sound-proof ceilings, chic lighting of solid-state lamp that uses light-emitting diodes, iPod docking stations and well-stocked mini bars.
The bathrooms are …inviting! Equipped with rain showers and a huge free-standing tub that is big enough for two, while the spacious dressers and drawers are just perfect for a pampering vanity experience. Try not to glare at your reflection too much under the perfect lighting every time you walk into the room. Not easy.
Walls are painted with a water based environmentally friendly paint, and feature hand-carved woven rattan panels. In standard rooms, a traditional Balinese carved partition creates a feeling of extra living space, dividing the bed from the sitting area featuring a cozy round day-bed leading to the balcony for maximum ocean views.
Is that all? Certainly not. We also launched a new Club Connections Package? to provide Club-level guests with even more benefits, such as internet access in their rooms, sunset cocktails at Rock Bar, thalassotherapy?at the Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool, cultural dinner and dance performance at Langit Theatre, and airport transfers.
And to give you a heads up, this is not our final hurrah. More to follow!
