Contemporary hotels with a cool or cultured edge will be meeting travel agents in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth this February at the Badung Region hotel sales mission.
Over 20 hotels, boutique hotels, eco-resorts, private and themed villas will be represented from across the island.
“We’re especially calling out to agents who have never booked Bali,” says Vinsen Jemadu, Director of Asia Pacific Promotion, Ministry of Tourism, Republic of Indonesia.
“Many Australian holiday makers are seeking quieter places to relax than buzzy Kuta and we want to introduce them to places like Sanur, Ubud, Nusa Dua and Candi Dasa,” says Mr Jemadu.
“Sanur, by the beach, is where hip Europeans who have out grown the party scene come to relax and play; Ubud, nestled in the rainforest is the cultural hub of the island with lush gardens and rainforest views a feature of many properties; Nusa Dua is renowned for its manicured five star hotels and Candi Dasa on the east Coast is a laid back seaside town popular with divers and snorkelers,” he explains.
Lovers of beautiful spaces will appreciate the Bali-modern architecture and tropical sophistication of The Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa, a Luxury Hotel Awards Winner.
Stylemiesters will enjoy the achingly cool Double-Six Luxury Hotel located beachside Seminyak or the clean minimalism of Karma Kandara Resort, perched clifftop at Ungasan, South Bali.
Families with young children will get excited at the Bali Safari and Marine Park with its open zoo – including Komodo Dragons and Orang Utans. They will be promoting thatched safari-style villas.
Agents booking for couples seeking privacy and nature will want to see Nandini Jungle Resort & Spa an 18-villa eco retreat 20 minutes north of Ubud. Or meet with Tjendana Villas operaters of private villas across Bali.
The Breezes Bali Resort & Spa, Seminyak will highlight its “Departure Lounge” providing a comfy way to spend the day for travellers with late night flights back to Australia.
Movenpick Resort and Spa, Jimbaran, wants to highlight its rooftop bar and suitability for business and leisure travellers.
Segara Village, located beachfront in chilled out Sanur is perfect for social couples and larger family groups wanting plenty of beachside dining and relaxing options.
Jambuluwuk Oceano Seminyak is a shopper’s delight being located on Seminyak’s trendiest street Jl Petitenget. It boasts modern design with a Balinese twist.
Additional properties include: Adhi Dharma Hotel, Kuta, The Vira Bali Hotel, South Kuta, The Samaya, Seminyak – also a luxury Hotels Winner, H Sovereign Bali, Tuban and Santi Mandala, Ubud.
