The iconic Kuta neighbourhood is about to get a dose of good vibrations as international hospitality brand, Ovolo Hotels, makes its expansions to the exotic island of Bali with the launching of MAMAKA by Ovolo, the first Ovolo Hotels to open in Indonesia.
The Kuta neighbourhood thrived in its heyday, long-known as the destination on the island, but the past decade has seen travellers opting to stay in more recently developed areas such as Seminyak, or Canggu. So, it’s fair to say that Kuta is in dire need of a major shake-up.
The Beachwalk Mall certainly revitalised the Kuta beachfront when it opened back in 2012, but since then new and fresh developments have been few and far between. This is precisely what MAMAKA by Ovolo offers to the area, a stylish and contemporary destination that appeals to the tastes and desires of today’s traveller set to take Kuta back to its former glory.
What Ovolo is all about
The opening of MAMAKA by Ovolo marks the first Ovolo establishment to open outside of Australia and Hong Kong, regions in which they quickly became one of the most dynamic independently operated hospitality brands.
The collection of contemporary hotels is all about keeping you connected to the little luxuries you love and being in touch with the modern traveller. This is done through award-winning interior design, detail-driven comforts, the latest technology and also complimentary value-added services. The ‘By Ovolo Collective’ presents four hotels which are distinct and unique, the latest being MAMAKA.
“We are very excited to bring up this first urban lifestyle resort in Bali and deliver an extraordinary experience to our guests in Ovolo’s way – through connecting emotionally with our guests,” said Founder & CEO of Ovolo Group, Girish Jhunjhnuwala. “MAMAKA by Ovolo is the answer Kuta-Legian has been waiting for, it will enrich your Bali journey and bring back good vibrations to the area,” Girish added.

Each level at MAMAKA by Ovolo offers the unforgettable and is set to present guests with a memorable experience.
