French design firm Studio MHNA has recently completed the transformation of Club Med Bali Nusa Dua in Indonesia

Bali is a popular tourist destination for its tropical scenery. Plenty of resorts and hotels open their business on the island and Club Med Bail Nusa Dua is among them. Recently, French design firm Studio MHNA has been commissioned by the hotel to renovate the restaurant, bar, pool and 70 suites.

Designer Marc Hertrich drew inspiration from the nature of Bali. The design concept is built around creating a clean, contemporary feel with a distinctly Balinese twist. The result is a haven of calm, melding modern simplicity and Balinese flair in harmony. Red is the dominant colour of this resort, filling the rooms with warmth and energy.

The swimming pool area, called Zen pool,  is based around a grand staircase entrance that gives way to the pool area featuring day beds on the water, four-poster beds on the lawn and the welcome shade of overhead canopies suspended from imposing stone columns, all in a perfectly landscaped setting with spectacular views over the ocean.

The outdoor dining area, naming the Deck,  is designed to create the sensation of a floating structure. Its architecture is a perfect blend of tradition and modernity, featuring clean lines and natural materials surrounded by water dappled with colours and reflected light.

To retain the local flavour, all furniture and fittings were made in Indonesia, mostly in Bali, with local artisans providing the authentic details that give the resort its unique character and charm.
