November 26, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI, Indonesia had the honour of hosting the recent 12th anniversary of the 2018 World Luxury Hotel Awards, which awards the world’s finest hotels for their luxury offerings and exceptional service delivery. Set across 90-hectares along Jimbaran’s golden mile and offering an ever-expanding selection of five-star accommodation and facilities, the world-class destination resort is extremely fitting for the prestigious black-tie event attended by the best names in the industry.

AYANA has received many top-shelf accolades over the years and notably, the Luxury Honeymoon Resort Global Winner for the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2017. During this year’s ceremony, AYANA was awarded in three categories:

  • Continent Winner, Asia – Luxury Thalasso & Spa Resort for AYANA
  • Country Winner, Indonesia – Luxury Romantic Villa for The Villas at AYANA
  • Country Winner, Indonesia – Luxury Architecture Design Hotel for RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA.

In addition, AYANA received a special award from the organisers of World Luxury Hotel Awards in recognition of hosting the memorable event.

Over 360 guests from more than 100 countries flew in from around the world to attend the awards ceremony. Keeping with this year’s theme of celebrating Indonesia’s rich archipelago and culture, guests were treated to Balinese performances such as a Panyembrama Dance, traditional Balinese welcome dance, and an intimate live performance by Gus Teja, a flute maestro. Furthermore, the unique set up of  AYANA’s  Grand Ballroom invited guests to learn more about Indonesia’s arts and crafts and included interactive displays such as batik making, wood carving.

Guests dined on a thoughtfully crafted menu highlighting Indonesia’s cosmopolitan cuisine including wood smoked baby lobster and sea urchin, inspired by  Executive Chef,  Patrick Callarec’s trip to Labuan Bajo, Flores Island where the recently launched  AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach is located at.

The gala dinner kicked off with a keynote speech delivered by Prof. Dr. I Gede Pitana Msc., the representative of Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and the night continued with TV hosts from E! News Asia, twins Maria and Elizabeth Rahajeng, who entertained the audience through a dazzling awards ceremony where awards were presented to luxury hotels and resorts in over 100 categories on a Country, Regional, Continent, and Global basis. After the ceremony, DJ Martin Denev rocked the after party well into the evening at RIMBA’s UNIQUE Rooftop Restaurant & Bar.
