Jean-Michel Gathy, Principal Designer of the award-winning hospitality and design consultancy firm DENNISTON was appointed to complete the interior design of Jumeirah Bali, an all-villa luxury resort sitting gracefully atop the cliffs of Uluwatu. Opened in July 2022 and inspired by colonial Balinese and European influences, Jean-Michel has created a verdant, opulent sanctuary of tropical modernism styled by tactile and natural materials surrounded by luxurious modern comforts to connect the present and past at one of the most coveted locations on the island.
“Jumeirah Bali is designed as a palace celebrating the history of Central Java. The identity we have given to this project is a little bit different from most hotels in Bali. We have introduced an Indonesian-Dutch-inspired architectural interior, the European influences in the interior which relate to the colonial times of Central Java is very complementary to the architectural design. We have humbly slipped ourselves in.” comments Jean-Michel Gathy.
