TOPHOTELPROJECTS: German top hotelier develops a superlative vanguard vacation residence in prime location in Bali - Newswire Service for upcoming hotel projects (17)
Hamburg, Germany -- Frank M. Pfaller is an absolute exception within the global hotelier community: The professional host, with German roots, impresses because of his meteoric career in the international luxury hospitality and his preference for luxury cars such as the Bentley Convertible. After his stop-over in numerous international "jet-set places-to-be – like the Caribbean, Marbella and Kitzbuehel – Pfaller now sets his foot on the charming beaches of Indonesian paradise island Bali. He develops the first eco luxury couture retreat, a real vanguard superlative, in Seminyak's prime location near the international airport (TOPHOTELPROJECTS Nr. 13185). This exclusive hideaway offers private villas with one to three bedrooms, first class hotel service and a conceptual focus on "nature & environment". The hotel opening is scheduled for autumn 2012. The top brand "del" stands for "discerningly eco luxury", an unmistakable strategic focus on sustainability in all parts of this top hotel project such as its construction, the furnishing, the consumption & waste as well as the daily service.
The delMango Couture Retreat will combine cosmopolitan comfort and vanguard design to come up with an international unique "way of life" attitude. In his brand communication, Having observed the preferences of frequent travelers, Pfaller deliberately applies the German "way of life" rather than the extensively used "lifestyle" approach. With his development company Selected Estates of Asia Pte. Ltd. Singapore, Frank M. Pfaller is regarded a pioneer in the development of luxury resorts. Amongst others he has been awarded with the "Green Star Diamond Award" from the renowned American Academy of Hospitality Sciences.
The Balinese architects Yoko Sara and Ketut Arthana showcase paradisiac gardens around the spacious villas and the central hotel areas such as the reception and the lounge. The internationally well-known Japanese creative professionals from Nobuyiki Narabayashi's design team (lead-designer for "Super Potatoe") heads the international interior design with a particular focus on the main target clientele, future hotel guests from Japan. The hotel architecture will include typical Balinese shapes and materials, for example bamboo. "Eco luxury" is geared to a destination's ethic settings and therefore needs to follow pre-set standards regarding natural resources like water and energy wastage, says Pfaller.
Living, relaxing and entertainment – these are the main qualities of a top resort. The F&B concept thereby plays an important part, which is why Pfaller prefers the Japanese kitchen and East Asian finger food. Exquisite patisserie further refines the gourmet offering.
With just 14 private villas – 233 sqm to 457 smq in size and each equipped with an individual swimming pool – the delMango Couture Retreat will become one of the most exclusive spots of international hospitality. Of course available to merely a small group of people who are able to afford this costly pleasure. Nine of 14 villas have already been sold. If the owners are not on site, a simple overnight stay will cost between 390 US Dollar (for a small villa with one bedroom during off-season) and approximately 1,155 US Dollar (during peak season for a three bedroom villa)
