The first Kempinski property in Bali, The Apurva Kempinski Bali, is pleased to announce its predictions for meetings and events trends in 2019. 

 Located atop the majestic Nusa Dua cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean, The Apurva Kempinski Bali opened its doors on February 1, 2019, offering a uniquely magnificent setting for extraordinary events and meetings.

“Bali is an incredibly alluring destination with wide appeal to discerning travelers and groups,” said Vincent Guironnet, General Manager of The Apurva Kempinski Bali. “We know that visitors to Bali are looking for distinctive and authentic experiences, and our guests are also expecting highly-personalized service and modern amenities. As such, we have created meetings and event programs which highlight authentic cultural interactions, distinctive venues and unique experiences.”

 The Apurva Kempinski Bali artfully blends centuries of elegant Indonesian culture with modern luxury in a spectacular open-air resort featuring 475 guest rooms, sumptuous suites and exclusive villas. The resort offers six distinct dining venues, including Bali’s first aquarium restaurant, and impressive facilities including a 60-metre swimming pool, ocean-facing spa and family club.

 The Apurva Kempinski Bali is a stunning setting ideal for events, business meetings and weddings. The Candi Ballroom offers ocean views and 1,076 square metres of pillar-free space; the smaller Ocean View Grand Ballroom and Cliff Boardroom bask in abundant natural light overlooking beachfront views; the Apurva Chapel, a striking glass-fronted wedding venue, boasts mesmerising views of the Indian Ocean; and a spacious 2,200 square-metre oceanfront lawn is perfect for unique outdoor gatherings and events.

 With its stunning setting, passion for curating authentic experiences and modern luxury, The Apurva Kempinski Bali is uniquely positioned to deliver on the latest MICE trends in the market. A key trend is personalisation – creating bespoke experiences for groups and craft unique journeys which are in line with the resort’s pillars – spectacular, sensational, curated and serene. In the case of Bali, visitors seek memorable experiences enriched by the outdoors and cultural interactions. Customised meeting experiences include:

  • Detox & Restore Package: The half-day meeting package includes 30-minute sunrise yoga, 15-minute Chakra concoction and two-hour Javanese spa treatment; or guests can opt instead for a 60-minute body massage, 30-minute scalp massage and tailor-made Jamu herbal drink.
  • Introduction to Indonesia’s herbal drink Jamu: Introducing a wide-range of traditional concoctions composed of natural ingredients, the Jamu class package teaches guests the history behind the all-healing elixir trusted generations after generations.
  • Wellness Package: The half-day meeting package offers a Yin and Yang yoga class and choice of a three-hour Mangirenom or Bajang Ratu Javanese spa treatment.
  • Balinese Culture Full/ Half-Day Meeting Package: Guests can enjoy a traditional Balinese coffee break and lunch offerings in between a day of meetings.
  • Balinese Cooking Class: This offering includes an exclusive Balinese-style cooking class, featuring traditional dishes found in Indonesian cuisine.

Personalisation is key when it comes to food and beverage (F&B) trends. Guests are more health conscious than ever and especially discerning about consuming types of food which help them achieve optimal wellbeing, in addition to seeking cultural culinary experiences which reflect their destination. The meeting and events experts at the Apurva Kempinski Bali are adept at customising menus which accommodate dietary preferences and restrictions while showcasing delicious cultural favorites. Through unique offerings such as the Imperial Cuisine package, guests are able to experience an extensive array of traditional dishes presented the way meals were served back in the imperial days. 

Social media engagement is another trend for special events. Knowing that guests prefer to share their memories across multiple platforms, The Apurva Kempinski Bali has several photogenic spots that are perfect for social media and encourage guests and partners to share to #KempinskiBali and #PlaceToDiscover. 

In terms of event design, trends are leaning toward the use of more technology, like light displays or digital presentations. As a brand new resort, The Apurva Kempinski Bali has the latest technology incorporated into its venues to deliver perfect performances and presentations.
