Sea Sentosa by Sentosa Worldwide Resorts has won the title of 'World's Best Apartment' at the International Property Awards in London.
Due to open in July 2013, Sea Sentosa at Echo Beach in Bali is set on 2.8 hectares of beachfront. The fully integrated resort is a collaborative project between some of the world's most highly regarded designers.
"We are thrilled to have reached the final of the International Property Awards. To be listed among the world’s best in our category is a huge honour," said Mr. Ian Duffell. "We are enormously gratified and proud that what we have created is being recognised internationally by the best in the industry."
After 21 years at the helm of ambitious resort projects, Sentosa Worldwide Resorts Founder, Saxon Looker, has the unique ability to see a completed development in his minds eye, and assemble just the right talent from all round the world to create his vision in everything, from design to culture and service.
"I had an idea of where I wanted to go with the concept for Sea Sentosa," said Mr. Saxon Looker, "but knew I couldn’t get there by myself. By bringing together some incredible artistic talent, this project has exceeded my wildest estimations. The international talent combined with the fact that Bali has all the artisans of this archipelago, meant that our creativity was limitless. The evidence of this is us making the final of the International Property Awards – a great honour and a tribute to our amazing team.”
Architect Giacomo Passera has successfully been able to blend Sea Sentosa into the local environment. Each fully appointed apartment is an example of Italian design, coupled with the finest local Indonesian materials.
Sculpted vegetal walls by French designer Patrick Blanc will be complemented beautifully by world-renowned art, including work from the exceptional Massimo Listri. Expansive outdoor terraces and balconies provide panoramic views of the Indian Ocean beachfront and sculpted volcanic rocks.
