Bali Secures High-Profile Regional Events As New Hotels Make Their Mark

May 15, 2014 MICE No Comments Email Email

Bali has cemented its position as Indonesia’s leading destination for meetings and conventions, securing high-profile regional events in Bali following the opening of new 5-star hotels in Bali.

unnamed (1)Amongst the latest developments, the opening of RIMBA Jimbaran Bali within the 90-hectare AYANA Resort and Spa above Jimbaran Bay has further elevated the island’s facilities for world-class events in Bali. Now, groups of up to 450 rooms can stay on property, with accommodation options ranging from the best private pool villas in Bali to executive suites. In addition, RIMBA has new meeting rooms in Bali and event spaces to supplement AYANA’s extensive facilities and oceanfront venues. 

The integrated resort concept has opened up a new market for the property. In April, RIMBA was booked out over 5 days by a Presidents Club APJ 2014. RIMBA and AYANA were also jointly appointed over other regional destinations for the 5th annual Asia Pacific Pay-TV Operators Summit (APOS) in April, which featured special events with performances by American Idol’s Angie Miller, celebrity chef Rachel Allen and tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

unnamed (2)Other high-profile events at the resort this year have included a fragrance launch by Bulgari, and a trade mission by Tourism Australia. “AYANA understood our requirements from the very beginning, and also offered the perfect function facilities to enable us to deliver the business sessions,” said Karyn Kent, General Manager of south-east Asia for Tourism Australia.

These events follow an expansion last year of AYANA’s meeting and conference facilities, with the resort being appointed an APEC host hotel and hailed as “Bali’s newest MICE destination” by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.

Guests of both AYANA and RIMBA enjoy full access to all facilities across the property, with 15 restaurants and bars including priority access to the iconic Rock Bar Bali, and complimentary shuttle bus all day between RIMBA Lobby, AYANA Main Lobby, Spa, Villa Lobby and Kubu Beach.
