Walter Hess Named GM of New Chedi Club Jimbaran Bali

Chedi Club Jimbaran, Bali

Fans of GHM Hotels are eagerly awaiting the debut of the Chedi Club Jimbaran, the fourth for the luxury hotel group in Bali. Slated to open in the third quarter of 2014, the all-villa enclave will have round-the-clock butler service and full-service kitchens in each of the 34 villas. The Chedi Club Jimbaran will be the third GHM hotel to open within a year, hot on the heels of The Chedi Sakala (November 2013) and The Chedi Andermatt (December 2013).

Just this week, Swiss-born Walter Hess was appointed as the General Manager. He was previously the resident manager of the Nam Hai in Hoi An. Over two decades, Hess has worked at a number of five-star properties (like Four Seasons and the One & Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives) on four continents. He is a graduate of the prestigious École hôtelière de Lausanne, and speaks five languages. For more information, visit
