Indonesia’s Best Beach Resort, Four Seasons Bali at Jimbaran Bay, Partners with Dioriviera for the Second Year Running
Haute couture is poised to return to the sun-kissed Sundara Beach Club for the second year running, as part of an artful Dior pop-up store, café installation and dazzling “Diorized” touches at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. From July 15 to September 10, 2023 — two weeks longer than in 2022 due to popular demand and vastly expanded in scale — fashion-lovers and aesthetes can discover a curated selection of pieces from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dioriviera Summer Capsule Collection and a total immersion in iconic style against a backdrop of glittering sea views.
Setting the awe-inspiring scene, guests are welcomed to Sundara through an incredible entrance installation crafted by the French design house to include life-sized sand sculpture animals. Using Sundara’s breezy interior as a canvas, Dior’s interior designer will customise the 1,300 square metre (approximately 14,000 square feet) beach club to an “escape and enchantment” homage to the Dior dream with original furniture, merchandising displays, fitting rooms and a café.
Honouring the beautiful oceanside location, natural materials are woven into every element of the pop-up store on Sundara’s mezzanine level, from sea grass carpets and rattan chairs and hanging lamps to soothing tones of beige, cream and wood. Echoing the beach below, sand walls are artfully contrasted with the Dior logo while animals and luxuriant foliage are sculpted entirely from sand. Across the rest of the beach club and restaurant, each Instagrammable area is a feast for the eyes: the dusky pink Dior Toile de Jouy Sauvage pattern finds its way onto billowing mezzanine shades, day beds, cushions, umbrellas, the bar counter and even the DJ booth. The pièce de résistance? An underwater 57-metre-long (187 foot) artwork installation with the Dioriviera logo.
“We’re beyond proud to be the first Four Seasons globally to partner with Dioriviera,” comments Randy Shimabuku, General Manager of Four Seasons Resorts Bali. “It feels especially exciting in 2023 as we acknowledge the hard work and vision of our incredible Jimbaran Bay team. Four Seasons and Dior are naturally aligned partners with both brands committed to creating high-end, luxurious and memorable experiences and celebrating life’s beauty.”
“We’ve certainly upped the ante this year,” added Mathilde Adam, Senior Director of Marketing of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. “After last year’s success, we are excited to create something even more alluring, from the breath-taking sand sculpture entrance to Dior design across the entire restaurant and bar area. From Dior-decorated buggies to sun beds and cabanas, it’s a playful invitation to expect the unexpected.”
A Wildly Beautiful Collection
All infused with Dior’s signature la dolce vita, the pieces in Dioriviera Summer Capsule Collection are imaginative takes on Dior classics. Dior’s timeless Toile de Jouy Sauvage motif is reinvented using a palette of soft shades, from creams and greys to light pinks and blues, and playful patterns of tigers, monkeys and reptiles. The pattern weaves its way onto skirts, dresses, shorts, scarves and swimsuits - perfect for chic Sundara afternoons - as well as Dior’s iconic bags, the Lady D-Lite and the Dior Book Tote; the Dior Silk Top; Dway mules; J’Adior pumps, and the lining of the Lady Dior Wicker.
Showcasing laidback Mediterranean elegance, breezy marinières and straw hats enhance the Dioriviera seasonal allure. Dior Maison’s summer essentials are an extension of the sun-kissed wardrobe, with a yoga mat, surfboard, parasol and beach games inviting blissfully stretched-out seaside days. Delicate decorative objects, tableware, placemats and embroidered cushions are a homage to the art of living well, while an exclusive Bali-inspired line is set to surprise and enchant in equal measure.
The DIOR café is the perfect opportunity to soak up the entire spectacular experience. A unique collaboration between Sundara Chef de Cuisine David Gavin and Executive Pastry Chef David Peduzzi, the inspired menu features French Mediterranean flavours and will be available throughout the entire beach club.
Travel + Leisure Luxury Award Winners
Combining iconic style with award-winning luxury, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay is also celebrating winning Best Beach Resort in Indonesia in the highly regarded Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2023. Honouring the Resort as a “family-friendly property with easy access to surf and sand that beautifully marries all elements of Bali thanks to robust programming, diverse dining and those plush pool villas,” the award is a welcome recognition of the dedication the Jimbaran Bay team puts into creating heartfelt experiences and a connection to Balinese culture for guests.
