Featuring four circles focused on a point, the motif recurs throughout Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali, reinterpreted in latticework, ceramic design and ceiling reliefs that connect Bali's past and present.

The motif was originally worn only by the Sultan in Java and his family and was one of the forbidden batik motifs for the general population. In this context the Kawung was linked with power, wisdom and justice and was thought to imbue these qualities to the wearer.
