eTN Chatroom: Discuss with readers from around the world:

According to feedback received from guests, the Intercontinental Bali Resort is a special and sophisticated hotel to have a conference or corporate meeting in Bali. It is a positive example for the MICE (Meeting and incentive) industry in Indonesia.

Comments received by guests say:

“We were very delighted with the quality of the accommodation. The resort as a whole was outstanding, offering excellent facilities. The conference facilities were also excellent, and the staff provided a high level of service. We had a few last-minute requests (additional AV, furniture, and conference call facilities) and all requests were met quickly and with a smile.”

“Support from the hotel leading up to and after the conference was timely and efficient. I would happily recommend this resort for any large corporate gathering and hope to visit as a ‘lone traveler’ at some point in the future.”

“I would like to say thank you to everyone at the Intercontinental Bali Resort for all your support and attention during the event on June 4-6, 2015. I feel like I am part of your family now. I feel the family atmosphere of your resort made me say home to the Intercontinental Bali.”

“The team communicates very well. They handled our event like it was their own event. It felt like we have knew your team for long time.”

Dewi Karmawan, Assistant Director of Public Relations, told eTN:

“This multiple award-winning resort provides a spectacular playground of 14 hectares of tropical landscaped gardens beside 500 meters of prime white sand beach, within one of Bali’s most beautiful bays. It offers a luxurious range of 417 beautifully-appointed rooms, including 3 exclusive tiers of accommodation: Resort Classic, Singaraja, and Club InterContinental. Club InterContinental is a celebration of classic style where guests are treated to an elevated level of hospitality. A diverse array of top-notch facilities includes extensive meetings and events venues; abundant recreation and leisure outlets and activities, including six pools, spa and dedicated child-care facility; while culinary excellence abounds with a superb choice of restaurants, bars, and dining experiences.

“In addition to the resort facilities, we introduced a pioneering new concept – Leisure Concierge – helping guests get the very most from leisure pursuits available throughout the resort.

“InterContinental Bali Resort provides top-class family facilities as well as a wide and exciting range of activities aimed at parents, teens, and children.

“The beachfront resort welcomes families with open arms with its extensive landscaped gardens offering a vast choice of leisure and recreational facilities, including 6 pools, tennis courts, a spa, and a 24-hour fitness center. Additionally, the beautiful beach environment is a natural playground for adults and children alike, lending itself to numerous recreational pursuits from beach volley ball to a diverse array of water sports.

“The 35-meter Main Pool is especially family-orientated with a shallow water area for children; it is conveniently flanked by the Jimbaran Gardens restaurant and Pool Bar, which makes for casual family-style poolside drinks and dining. Additionally, the two Fun Pools are ideal for children with two water fountains providing – as the name suggests – lots of fun, while the Fountain Pool is especially suitable for adults and teenagers, and quality family time.

“Planet Trekkers kids’ club is structured as a mini-resort for kids aged from 4 to 12 years and designed to ensure that youngsters have as much fun when they are on holiday as their parents do. The club facilitates a dedicated, fully-supervised and secure child-care center within a dynamic, fun, and nurturing environment. Here, children can interact with other like-minded junior travelers and participate in a program of child-orientated activities, with cultural and eco-leanings to keep them entertained for hours on end.

“Along with a highly-trained team of recreation attendants, the resort presents a daily schedule of leisure pursuits that all members of the family can enjoy. From village cycling tours to interactive Balinese cooking classes; sunrise yoga; or a chance to master the art of traditional Balinese dance, music, or wood carving, these activities incorporate all ages and preferences, promising an interesting and pleasing mix of art, culture, and sports, maximizing all aspects of the resort, the local fishing community, and the island.

“We can also help Bali’s on-going environmental conservation by participating in the resort’s year-round Turtle Release Program. This heart-warming experience of releasing baby turtles back into Jimbaran Bay is especially popular with children, teaching them good conservation habits and environmental awareness from an early age.”

eTN Publisher Juergen T. Steinmetz said: “We’re pleased to add Intercontinental Bali Resort to THE LIST.

“A devoted staff and management give the resort a soul. Judging on the feedback received from guests, the Intercontinental Bali Resort has a soul that sends a positive spirit. Conferences and incentive travel is big business in Bali. The Intercontinental Bali Resort understands how to capture this market. Again, people working and representing this special place make it possible for the resort to become the favorite venue for many. Congratulations!”
