Ovolo Hotels is excited to announce the complete launch of MAMAKA by Ovolo, the first urban resort in Bali which brings good vibrations back to the Kuta-Legian area. This marks the first Ovolo property in Indonesia and the first outside of Hong Kong and Australia.
MAMAKA by Ovolo’s design concept is wonderfully created by Ara Design, taking the Ovolo DNA to another level. The property is enriched with Balinese spirit by incorporating vibrant colours and natural elements, combined with sun rays to create an exhilaratingly simple yet warm atmosphere. The eclectically designed urban resort is perfectly located in the lively Kuta-Legian neighbourhood, specifically on the famous Kuta beachfront. The resort is listed as the best sunset spot on the island, featuring entertainment destinations and shopping centers, and last but not least, 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. “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.”
Stepping into MAMAKA’s main lobby, guests are greeted by the show-stopping 3D butterfly-shaped artwork by PunkMeTender, a Parisian-turned-Angeleno who is known for his very graphic, raw form of art, drawn from street art, graffiti, photography, fashion and the female form. This is his first-ever masterpiece in Indonesia, which is showcased right above the entrance as well as in the guest lounge. For MAMAKA, PunkMeTender created a new kind of mural installation, integrating three-dimensional butterfly shapes to portray a butterfly in mid-flight. This graceful action represents a connection on a spiritual and physical level.
Romaine, the man behind the stage-name of PunkMeTender, said, “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.”
Each guest room at MAMAKA features a collection of photographs by Australian photojournalist Jason Childs, who is also one of the world’s top-notch surf photographers. The images showcase Jason’s signature shots that focus on Balinese culture, the surfing scene and so much more.
Each level at MAMAKA by Ovolo offers a unique and extraordinary experience. The urban resort features 191 designed rooms and suites that showcase a lively and flawless design matched with interiors that elegantly echo the natural essence of Balinese culture. To juxtapose this, MAMAKA’s signature Swagger and Top Gun suites offer a private mini-bar with a well-equipped shaker, jigger, strainer, long bar spoon and more, inviting guests to be creative and concoct their own in-room cocktails.
Additionally, there are plenty of activities that the hotel offers. The 24-hour Wellness Zone features brand-new gym equipment from TRX, Boxing, the iconic balancing surfboard and much more. This facility is not only for in-house guests; non-residents can also enjoy the facility by signing up to a Gym Membership package.
“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 amazing sunsets. What’s more, the resort has proudly teamed up with Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy to provide surfing lessons to guests, by the best ISA-certified coaches.
