Soundtracked by the whispers of coconut palms and the sighs of the Andaman Sea, Aman’s first resort presides over its own peninsula, promising space and serenity surrounded by nature. Its pitched-roofed pavilions and villas, Holistic Wellness Centre and pristine secluded beach create an iconic retreat, that is still renowned today as Aman’s flagship.

The Amanpuri team will also handle all preparation required, including transport to the event site for race pack collection, bike registration and pre-race briefing. A tailored meal plan will be served throughout the retreat and on the evening prior, participants will enjoy an early dinner, as well as a special turndown service with sleep-improving oils and a sleep mask. To remember the occasion, a photographer will be provided by the resort with a photo framed and presented upon departure. A session with a doctor, an IV energy-boosting drip and Laughter Yoga on the beach follow the event, to help restore the body to optimum health.

Amanpuri’s carefully calibrated Individual Wellness Immersions, will also continue throughout 2021, balancingevery aspect of health and wellness. Tailored to meet personal goals, the multi-day programmes are based on thorough testing and assessments and include a customised routine with daily spa and wellness treatments, a considered diet or cleanse, and suggested exercise. 

In addition to the reopening, guests can benefit from a range of new offers designed for groups. Ideal for those searching for their own tropical escape, the Amanpuri Villa Experience showcases the best of Phuket and the Amanpuri lifestyle from the comfort of a spacious private villa. Guests staying for a minimum of three nights will enjoy full board with a personal Thai chef and butler, a 60-minute holistic massage, daily group movement classes and full access to the resort’s exceptional facilities such as the Eco-Beach Discovery Centre and digital hub known as the Hot Spot, for children and teenagers.

ABOUT AMAN

Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (place of peace) in Phuket, Thailand, introduced the concept and, since then, Aman has grown to encompass 33 exquisitely serene hotels and resorts in 20 destinations across the world. A further eight properties are under construction, with the next to open in New York (2021). In such spectacular settings, Aman has honed its offering with its transformative influence on mind, body and spirit through harmoniously designed environments transporting guests out of their everyday lives. Twelve properties also offer private branded Residences: sanctuaries that go beyond commonplace notions of luxury allowing a select few to make the Aman way of life a permanent reality.

In recent years, Aman has grown to offer its coveted lifestyle beyond the parameters of its havens. In 2018, the introduction of Aman Skincare continued the brand’s holistic influence, offering beautiful scented formulas using powerful all-natural ingredients and inspired by Aman Spas. The introduction of Sva – a range of supplements designed to help maintain optimum health – and Aman Fine Fragrance in 2020 continued this journey, bringing Aman into the comfort of home. This sentiment was echoed in 2021, with the arrival of a new retail collection, The Essentials by Aman, comprising timeless ready-to-wear pieces that answer the needs of every Aman guest. 

With innovation a cornerstone of the brand’s philosophy, in 2020, Aman welcomed a new hotel brand, Janu – meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit. Janu offers a unique take on hospitality where genuine human interaction, playful expression and social wellness are at the core of the experience. Janu aims to bring balance to the head and heart and rekindle the soul. Three forthcoming Janu hotels are already under construction: Montenegro (2022), Al Ula in Saudi Arabia (2023) and Tokyo (2023). Janu Montenegro will be the first hotel to incorporate the serviced Residences concept, enabling guests to wholly embrace the Janu’s spirit.

Mamaka By Ovolo Unveils Its Rockstar F&B Team Lead By Chef Nic Philip



– Executive Chef Nic Philip will be bringing his culinary expertise to Street 32 Cocktail Bar & Eatery, joining forces with the talented Head Mixologist, Raviella Angela –

The brand-new urban resort in Bali – MAMAKA by Ovolo – announces the appointment of Nicholas Philip, also known as Nic Philip, as their Executive Chef. Chef Nic will be taking the lead of the culinary team to oversee the vibrant beachfront cocktail bar & eatery, Street 32 which will take the culinary scene of the Kuta-Legian neighbourhood to the next level. Street 32 will not be the only thing that makes MAMAKA by Ovolo unique, another exciting concept soon to come is MAMAKA’s one-of-a-kind rooftop oasis, offering a 270-degree view of the iconic Kuta Beach coastline, set to open in early 2021.

After living in Bali for many years, Chef Nic has developed a passion for local Indonesian or South-East Asian produce and flavours. He has honed his skills during his time at several luxury resorts in the Asia-Pacific region, including Four Seasons Resort Bali Jimbaran Bay’s Sundara Beach Club, Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach, and Anantara Rasananda Resort at Koh Phangan, Thailand.

With more than ten years of experience in culinary, Chef Nic has spent time in leading European restaurants under mentorship such as the Michelin-starred Clove Club London and at the acclaimed Restaurant Taller in Copenhagen.

Originally from Currumbin, Gold Coast, Chef Nic went to college at The Australian Institute of Technology in Queensland. He was listed in Singapore’s The Peak Magazine list of Top Young Chefs of 2017 as well as The Bali Bible’s Top 10 Chefs of Bali.

At Street 32 we have created an approachable pan Asian menu that’s true to the spices and origins of the dishes that we reinterpret. We make everything in house from bread to Masala, we work with surrounding farmers, fisherman and artisans and reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can, we collaborate with Urban Biologist in efforts of reducing our waste and landfill as we compost and recycle what we can,” stated Chef Nic.

Chef Nic and his team’s palatable culinary offerings wouldn’t be complete without an equally marvellous beverage programme. Angela Raviella, better known as Angie, is the woman behind the bar as the appointed Head Mixologist. Angie has earned several achievements throughout her career, including becoming Runner Up at Captain Morgan Competition in 2018, as well as Second Runner Up at The Master Bartending Championship in 2020.

A gifted visionary with marvellous talent, Angie’s many accomplishments have prepared her to oversee the bar team at Street 32 with her innovative ideas, creative vision and fiery passion for the art of mixology, presenting meticulously crafted cocktails using only the finest local and organic ingredients.

I am truly honoured to be a part of MAMAKA by Ovolo’s F&B collective and to lead the talented bar team to welcome guests and present them with our extraordinary creations and invigorating beverage programme. For me personally, my team not only concocts stimulating beverages, but we are artists as well and therefore it’s very important for me to have a team with unique personalities,” said Angie.

MAMAKA by Ovolo will not only reinvent and enliven the Kuta-Legian neighbourhood through its modern hospitality and progressive vision but will also see Chef Nic and his superstar F&B team take the culinary scene by storm through its unique dining outlets.

On the other side of the bubble, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore invites guests from Hong Kong for a warm holiday vacation. Particularly curated for families, the hotel introduces the “Kids Stay Free, Fun For Whole Family” package that includes a three-hour Nerf Xperience or Family Activity Session at Kiztopia for two parents and two children per stay. To appeal to couples and friends who are eager to discover the Lion City from a new perspective, the hotel’s “Relax and Ride” package will present a sensational ride on vintage Vespa sidecars for two to explore famed Marina Bay.

“Travel has been disrupted for nearly a year, but we strongly believe the desire for destination discovery has never ceased,” said Pierre Barthes, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong and Area Vice-President, “Lifting mandatory quarantine between the two Asian hubs is an encouraging step for travellers and is undoubtedly a positive early sign of tourism recovery in Asia. At Mandarin Oriental hotels, guests are assured a safe experience with the ultimate in comfort and our legendary services at all times.

Sustainability is the new luxury at Alila Villas Uluwatu 1

From the very moment of its inception, Alila Villas Uluwatu was destined to be a model of sustainable design and responsible tourism. Over the years, the EarthCheck Platinum-certified resort’s commitment to sustainability has only strengthened as it inspires a new generation of conscious travellers to not only stay but also grow their awareness and make a positive impact.

“Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and for us it is the new luxury,” says General Manager Hemal Jain. “We feel that the modern-day luxury traveller is looking for sustainability in travel and to contribute in some form or the other to the environment and the community.”

Sustainability is all around for guests to appreciate in the resort’s stunning design, which blends naturally with Uluwatu’s dry savannah environment. Interiors seamlessly flow from inside to outside, maximising natural ventilation and views of the Indian Ocean. Lava rocks, which occur naturally in Uluwatu, serve as natural insulation for the buildings and, by absorbing the Bali heat, keep air-conditioning energy consumption to a minimum. The area’s natural ecosystem has also been preserved by incorporating local plants raised in an on-site nursery, encouraging local bird and animal life.

Alila Villas Uluwatu is constantly looking at ways in which to minimise its environmental footprint and believes that small steps can have a big impact. Here, guests quench their thirst with drinking water that is purified and stored in reusable glass bottles at an on-site water bottling plant – an initiative that has helped significantly reduce plastic waste.

Alila Villas Uluwatu is also Bali’s pioneer in substituting plastic-based amenities with biodegradable and compostable options, such as bamboo straws and dental kits – small changes that embrace sustainability without compromising luxury or quality.

Guests can also learn about the resort’s Sustainability Lab, the heart of its zero-waste policy, which enables it to make zero contribution to the waste situation on the island. At this on-site laboratory, all waste streams are transformed into higher value products and services through a series of simple yet proven mechanical and biological engineering systems.

For instance, glass is recycled and organic waste is turned into compost for use in the organic garden, where it enriches the soil and helps to produce fresh ingredients for the resort’s kitchens. In the garden, guests can join the in-house chefs to experience the garden-to-table journey while learning traditional recipes.

Beyond its green initiatives, Alila Villas Uluwatu is invested in the development of the local community, supporting worthy foundations and encouraging travel with purpose through its Gift to Empower offer.

Gift to Empower

Conscious travellers are invited to discover the beauty of Bali while enjoying a meaningful and memorable opportunity to connect with and support the local community.

In the spirit of giving back, 5% of guests’ villa rate per night will be gifted to R.O.L.E. Foundation, the resort’s non-profit partner working to break the poverty cycle by empowering women with skills training and business education. This special Gift to Empower offer includes daily breakfast and one three-course dinner for two persons, and a visit to the foundation on a heartwarming journey into the community.

For further information and reservations, please email us at [email protected]

About Alila

Venturing into new business segment with the addition of Oasia Resort Sentosa on Sentosa IslandIntroducing a second Village hotel in Japan, and the first Quincy expansion in Australia 

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 17 November 2020 –Far East Hospitality, one of the leading operators of hotels and serviced residences, today announced that it will forge ahead with its local and regional expansion plans with three properties — Oasia Resort Sentosa, Far East Village Hotel Yokohama, and Quincy Hotel Melbourne.

Oasia makes a splash into Sentosa Island


A rendering of Oasia Resort Sentosa

Slated for opening in the second quarter of 2021, Oasia Resort Sentosa will be the fourth property on Sentosa island managed by Far East Hospitality. The homegrown company has signed a Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) with Far East Organization. Under the agreement, Far East Hospitality will be responsible for the hotel’s operations, and sales and marketing functions. This property also marks Far East Hospitality’s first foray into the resort and spa category. 

“The progression into the resort and spa field is both a natural and calculated move,” said Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive of Far East Hospitality. “Each of our properties on Sentosa cater to different demographics. Village Hotel Sentosa for urban explorers and families. The Outpost Hotel for young couples who prefer exclusivity, and The Barracks Hotel for those who enjoy old world charm of the building’s architecture and service offerings. With Oasia Resort Sentosa, which targets the wellness conscious, it completes our suite of offerings on the island.”


The 191-key property consists of Suites, Wellness Premier Rooms, and Deluxe Rooms. Guests will have the opportunity to experience a wellness lifestyle encompassing not just a spa treatment, but healthy eating, fitness routines, mind-body practices, as well as connecting with nature. Wellness journals, self-care checklists, and access to a collection of guided meditation audio are amongst the many items that are made available for guests during their stay.

A second hotel in Japan Four months after opening Far East Village Hotel Ariake — Far East Hospitality’s first venture into Japan, the company is expanding further with a management contract for a second Village property in Yokohama. Far East Village Hotel Yokohama is set to open in the second quarter of 2021. The 277-key property will be managed by Far East Hospitality under a HMA with Far East Organization.

Situated in the heart of downtown Yokohama, the property targets business travellers. It is a five-minute drive to the central business district and a three-minute walk to Sakuragicho and Kannai stations. Guests will also be able to Eat, Play, and Explore like a local at cultural enclaves such as Chinatown and the Red Brick Warehouse, and attractions such as the Cup Noodle Museum and Cosmoworld.
“Tourism in Japan has picked up gradually since the easing of travel curbs and the resumption of reciprocal ‘green lanes’ for business and official travel. We are also hopeful that launching the property will also give us the opportunity to capture the domestic market,” said Mr Kiong. Quincy debuts in Australia, Melbourne


Quincy Melbourne is set to open in Q1 2021

From thoughtful spatial design to playful interiors and wondrous experiences — these are some of the finer things that guests can expect when Quincy Hotel Melbourne opens in the first quarter of 2021. The HMA is signed with InterGlobe through Far East Hospitality’s joint venture company, Toga Far East Hotels in Australia, marking the Quincy brand’s first expansion abroad.

Quincy’s quirky and anticipatory approach to service fits into Melbourne’s upbeat and experiential city lifestyle. Located at the top of Flinders Lane — a vibrant street in Melbourne’s central business district — the hotel targets at social urbanites with a penchant for experiential travel and the finer things in life. Guests will be able to enjoy South East Asian cuisine at its signature restaurant as well as access to its club levels and lounge.

  • Luxury resort announces new General Manager and Director of Sales & Marketing
  • Team readies new Pool Villas and Wellness facility for reopening in 2021

Bali, 12 November 2020: Viceroy Bali – the luxury resort overlooking the serene Valley of the Kings in Ubud, Bali – has announced the appointment of Amanda Syrowatka as General Manager and Patrick Farrell as Director of Sales & Marketing.

Amanda takes the helm of the family-run luxury property from her brother Anthony, who held the position since pre-opening. She is no stranger to the resort: in addition to being co-owner, she held the position of Director of Sales & Marketing from 2014, where she reaffirmed Viceroy Bali’s notability in the luxury travel sector, including the title of #1 Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveler (2018).

Prior to joining the family business, Amanda worked at specialist Accounting firm McGrathNicol in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. Her strong leadership skills and hands-on approach to management are tipped to help continue the resort’s success.

Commenting on Amanda’s appointment, founder Otto Syrowatka said: “When we opened Viceroy Bali in 2005, we hoped – but had no real idea – it would grow to the international success and acclaim it has today. I am proud not only as a father but as a long-term resident of Bali, to see Viceroy passed to Amanda, whom I know will stamp her passion and personality into the resort.”

Amanda is joined by Patrick Farrell in the role of Director of Sales & Marketing. Patrick joins from The Lanesborough, an Oetker Collection Hotel, in London, having also worked for global hotel brands in Dubai, Brussels, the Seychelles and Maldives.

“Patrick’s enthusiasm for, and experience in, the luxury travel sector will make him a great addition to the team,” says Amanda.

With international borders closed since March 2020, the team at Viceroy Bali have developed fifteen new pool villas, alongside a new state-of-the-art Wellness facility and refurbishment of Cascades restaurant.

Despite the challenging times in the travel industry, the owners have managed to retain all 170 resort employees, and recently reopened the Apéritif and Cascades restaurants to domestic guests in a Covid-safe environment.

“We’ve been working hard to support the local community during this time, including food donations and charity events,” says Amanda. “Viceroy Bali and my family are committed to helping the locals stay sustained until the island is ready to welcome global citizens again. And when those borders reopen, our new Pool Villas and Wellness facility will be waiting to provide an enhanced experience to our guests.”

About Viceroy Bali
