LONDON (Jan. 16, 2014) — Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of Mahagiri Vacation Club in Sanur, a popular holiday destination on the Indonesian island of Bali.
Hidden within the maze of narrow lanes, Mahagiri Vacation Club is laid out in the tradition of a Balinese village and constructed in the local style with stone walls and thatched palm roofs. The luxury complex has 18 units set within beautifully landscaped gated grounds and is linked by paths to a full-service restaurant and spa. Guests are a short walk from a white-sand beach, legendary for its spectacular sunrises.
“We wanted to blend the cultural traditions and spiritual atmosphere that distinguishes Sanur from other popular vacation spots on Bali, with the high standards that many modern travellers expect or aspire to on vacation,” said Iwansja Gunawan, owner of Mahagiri Vacation Club. “While our spacious villas are designed to pamper guests with up-to-date amenities and indulgent services, the overall feeling here is friendly and unpretentious. We are delighted to be working with Interval International and look forward to extending a warm Balinese welcome to its members.”
“Many say the peaceful aura of Sanur and the kindness of the local people make them feel at home and eager to return,” added Dionesius Setiabudi, co-owner of Mahagiri Vacation Club.
The interiors of the one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas have hardwood floors and Balinese art and include a kitchen, where breakfast is prepared each day by a cook. Each opens on a serene tropical garden with a private pool, a space that is nearly as large as — or larger than — the interior living space.
All Mahagiri Vacation Club’s villas are air-conditioned and include daily housekeeping service. En-suite amenities include a large, flat-panel TV with cable and DVD player in the living room and bedrooms, Wi-Fi, and a stereo sound system. The restaurant/bar on the property provides 24-hour room service, along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Guests may request en-suite spa treatments such as Balinese massage or reflexology from the full-service spa.
Resort staff arranges monthly traditional events for visitors and provides concierge services, including organising tours. Complimentary bicycles are available and guests also can request transport to local attractions.
“Mahagiri Vacation Club is a spectacular addition to Interval International’s quality exchange network. It achieves that rare combination, providing an extremely high standard of luxury, along with a truly authentic cultural experience,” said Joe Hickman, Interval’s vice president and executive director for Asia Pacific. “And the location is unbeatable — close to a beautiful beach and golf, as well as local warungs (family-owned cafes), restaurants, cultural shows, and nightlife. We’re very proud to offer our members this wonderful vacation destination.”
Mahagiri Vacation Club is convenient to popular attractions in Ubud, Nusa Dua, and Kuta and only 25 minutes from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
