On 22 September 2018, The St.Regis Bali Resort celebrated its 10 year anniversary on the island.
This luxurious, tropical sanctuary first opened its doors to discerning travellers back in September 2008, and has since shared its elevated experience of Bali in many ways. Of course, the St. Regis brand is known for its amazing properties around the world and The St.Regis Bali Resort is certainly no different. The resort is a haven of lagoon pools and gardens, all found behind the idyllic white sand beach of Nusa Dua, where blue waves lap softly against the shores.
With 123 suites and villas found throughout the property, as well as The Strand Residence, it certainly fits the image of the perfect luxury escape in Bali – but with that St.Regis touch of class, of course.
In its 10 years, the resort has received many awards such as “World’s Best Beach Hotels 2017” by Travel+Leisure, “50 Best Resorts in the World” and “Top Resorts in Asia” from Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2017, and most recently “Best Resort Hotel in Asia Pacific 2018” from Business Traveller Asia-Pacific and “Top 3 Best Resorts in Indonesia” in the DestinAsian Readers’ Choice Awards 2018 to name a few. On top of that, it’s Remede Spa, Boneka and Kayuputi restaurants have received high recognition amongst both travellers and residents — Kayuputi’s brunch becoming almost legendary on the island.
On the evening of the 22nd September 2018, a host of prominent guests descended on the St.Regis Bali Resort’s lobby to celebrate in this impressive milestone. They enjoyed Champagne and cocktails before watching an extraordinary fire display that took place from the lobby down to the beachfront.
Finally, guests headed down to St.Regis Bali’s Cloud Nine, situated in front of the resort’s beachfront wedding chapel. After being welcomed by the new Managing Director, Oliver Key, and a reunion of all the Managing Directors of St.Regis Bali’s past took place.
Guests then indulged in an exquisite culinary experience; a five-course, wine-paired dinner crafter by the the Resort’s award-winning culinary team, along with Executive Chef Gianluca Visani from The St. Regis Osaka who was flown in for the special occasion.
The evening was also filled with entertainment, including a live cocktail-show world champion mixologist, Joshua Ivanovic, founder of KL Cocktail Co. & JungleBird Kuala Lumpur, as well as an incredibly special performance by Indonesia’s legendary diva, Titi DJ .
Finally, the evening also provided an opportunity for guests to raise funds for charity through a live auction, including once-in-a- lifetime experiences that include stays at some of the finest St. Regis addresses around the globe with Thai Airways tickets, as well as luxury and collectible items. The proceeds of the auction will go entirely to rebuilding Lombok through Habitat for Humanity.
The evening ended a spectacular fireworks display against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean.
Of course, 10 years is just the beginning for this legendary travel destination, St.Regis is likely to welcome more unique experiences in the years to come.
