Edited by Travel Weekly


    Minor Hotels has signed an agreement to manage a new-build Anantara resort and branded residences on Seseh Beach in Bali, opening in 2027.

    The news Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort will be the first luxury beachfront resort on Seseh Beach and the third Anantara Hotels & Resorts property in Bali.

    The Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort is located on the black volcanic shores of Seseh Beach, a short drive from southern coast hotspots Canggu and Seminyak and an hour from Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).

    The property’s striking architecture, a creation of renowned British architect John Dawes, draws inspiration from the mystical Barong of Bali, a dragon-like guardian, lending the complex a sense of strength and grace with a touch of fantasy.

    The 216 keys, a mix of lead-in rooms and suites ranging from 52sqm to 120sqm, offer a serene sanctuary by the ocean. The Cocoon Residences blend nature and modern elegance, providing harmony between the interior and exterior and stunning views of the sunrise and sunset over the Indian Ocean.

    The Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Resort is developed and owned by the Taryan Group, a leading real estate and development company focused on progressive, innovative and ambitious development projects founded by Artur Mkhitaryan.The Anantara Dragon Seseh Bali Residences will be available for purchase through Taryan Group, with Anantara providing overall resort management.

    In addition to enjoying world-class surfing on Seseh Beach, guests will revel in restorative stays at the peaceful hideaway along the Indian Ocean.

    Guests can rejuvenate themselves at the Anantara Spa, find their inner peace in dedicated yoga and meditation studios, level up their workout at the top-of-the-line fitness centre, how to ride the waves from the on-site surf school or relax at the beach lounge or one of three swimming pools.

    The property will include three dining outlets: an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty Japanese restaurant and a poolside bar.

    “The combination of the distinctive architecture and design of our cocoon residences, elevated by the Anantara signature hospitality, will offer guests and owners extraordinary experiences that celebrate Bali’s natural beauty and culture.”

    Minor Hotels currently operates two properties on Indonesia’s most-visited island: the Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort, a 73-key resort on the southern tip of Bali, and Avani Seminyak Bali Resort, an upscale lifestyle resort of 37 suites and pool villas.

    The hotel group is expanding its footprint in Bali this year with the addition of the Anantara Ubud Bali Resort, opening in September. Nestled amid tropical jungle and verdant rice fields, Anantara Ubud Bali Resort brings Anantara’s authentic luxury to the island’s interior with 66 suites and pool villas and 15 Anantara-branded residences.
