LegianKuta – Bali, 29 July 2013 - Archipelago International, the company behind such popular hotel labels as Aston Hotel & Resorts and favehotels, unveiled its new upper midscale brand, HARPER by Aston, with the opening of the HARPER Kuta Hotel in Bali.

The new Harper Kuta is being described as "modern – rustic," and images posted to the brand's Web site,, in some ways reflect the aesthetics of a cozy countryside home while remaining unmistakably Asian and modern in its core.

The handsome hotel sits right of JalanLegian in the very heart of Bali’s legendary surfer enclave of Kuta and offers 149 rooms and suites, many of which offer private balconies, a stunning outdoor pool with sun deck , a children’s pool , an intimate spa, and the Harper brand’s signature restaurant “Rustik Bistro & Bar".

Conceptualized to be modern yet infused with rustic charm the hotel conveys a residential feel. Combining comfort and functionality, Harper’s design concept uses warm, rich colors to offer comfort in each room. Accents of warm autumnal fabrics and soft orange hues promote relaxation - spiced pumpkin, tangerine and amber are popular variations of the orange palette - while modern grays create an understated cool elegance.

The principal restaurant “ Rustik Bistro & Bar” offers home comfort food cooking paired with great wine and cocktails in a fresh, light and elegant room placing an emphasis on creating dishes that promote the finest home cooking – both European and Indonesian such as Coq au Vin, Beef Stew – Beef Rendang and Soto Ayam.

“The new Harper Hotel concept opens the doors onto a new world of wellbeing and sensations. We all like to have a place to call our own and while travelling; this means comfort, practicality and a true reflection of our personality, a hotel with inspirational and distinctive interiors, finished to the highest quality standards.” Said Archipelago International’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mr. Norbert Vas.
