just for interesting, I have got this from the Anantara:

Greetings from Anantara Resorts!

I am delighted to share with y ou that Anantara Resorts is set to open a luxurious boutique property on a prime beachfront location in the chic resort area of Seminyak, Bali . Anantara Resort Seminyak, with a total of just 59 luxuri ou s suites, is scheduled to open on December 15th this year.






Anantara Resort Seminyak, Bali, Opening December 15, 2007


Anantara Resorts is set to open a luxurious boutique property on a prime beachfront location in the chic resort area of Seminyak, Bali. Anantara Resort Seminyak, with a total of just 59 luxurious suites, is a comfortable 30 minute drive from the international airport and is scheduled to open on December 15th this year.

Designed to complement the breathtaking panorama of the Indian Ocean, Anantara Resort Seminyak will reflect the lifestyle and culture of the stylish surrounds of Seminyak. The design of the 59 all-suite resort is contemporary, using extensive glass panelling to bring the vast waterscape of Seminyak Beach into the interiors and emphasize a natural ambience and fluidity with nature.

Under the esteemed architectural vision of Anthony Liu, whose firm TonTon is renowned for its innovative tropical designs such as the Bale Resort in Nusa Dua, Anantara Resort Seminyak is poised to raise the benchmark for luxury accommodation. The resort is just a short stroll from the glamorous hub of Seminyak with its hip designer ateliers and cosmopolitan dining nightlife.

Each spacious suite in the five-story resort, all with an average of 70 to 80 sq metres, has an ocean view which accentuates a breezy and relaxed atmosphere. Anantara Resort Seminyak affords every modern convenience expected by luxury travellers, whilst ensuring absolute serenity in one of the world’s top island destinations.

To further indulge in the beautiful surrounds, the resort has a stylish rooftop bar with languorous settees and oversized cushions available for guests to “chill out” and soak in the famous Balinese sunsets. Serving up new world and Asian fare, and overlooking the wide expanses of beach below, the rooftop is set to be one of Bali’s premier entertainment and dining venues.

The Thai restaurant in the lobby level of the hotel will also offer an impressive mix of traditional Thai and contemporary fusion-styled dishes, inspired by the four main provinces of Thailand. Transforming from a daily breakfast venue into an ambient-lit dinner venue, the restaurant is punctuated with exquisite local and Thai object d’art.

Further features at the boutique resort include an infinity-edge pool overlooking the ocean vista, a first-class fitness facility and Bali’s first Anantara Spa, Asia’s foremost. Using Balinese design and décor, the Anantara Spa’s earthen tone interiors will contrast with the calming seascape exterior to reflect the harmony and interdependence of land and water. Consisting of four doubles suites and eight treatment beds, each spa room is equipped with private Jacuzzi and ocean views.

What a monster tower. That is way too much. Ordinary buildings won't do anymore, now it has to be something new all the time. This time it went wrong badly. There's a possibility this will look better when it's done, but i doubt it.
