The iconic Chedi Club Tanah Gajah Ubud resort, Bali, operated by Singapore-based GHM Hotels will rebrand to Tanah Gajah come January 2020. Designed and built by the acclaimed Indonesian architect, the late Hendra Hadiprana in the ’80s, the 20-villa property set among the paddy fields of Ubud, has been managed by the GHM group since 2004.
It’ll now be taken over by the Hendra Hadiprana group, after his heirs launched a bid to secure his legacy by rebranding the property after the architect passed away in December 2018 aged 89. also responsible for the Legian Bali, and InterContinetal Bali.
“We’ve had a terrific run with GHM,” said Sekaraya Hadiprana Surjaudaja, the architect’s granddaughter, and a principal in the new organisation. “My grandfather and GHM founder Hans Jenni were collaborators, who became great friends, and who together ushered this property onto a global stage. Now we embark on a new journey, to elevate our guest experiences”. — Sekaraya Hadiprana Surjaudaja, Hendra Hadiprana’s granddaughter
