On Friday, October 17, 2003, the Bali Hilton International officially marked the re-opening of The Ayodya Palace, (formerly The Ayoyda Club), following a US$ 3 million refurbishment program.
The 75-room private hotel within a hotel hosted its first post-refurbishment guests with the recent stays of Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammed, Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and Myanmar's Prime Minister General Khin Nyu during the ASEAN Business and Investment Summit held at the Resort October 4-7, 2003.
The luxury refurbishment program, which commenced in May 2003, is the first major renovation for the hotel since its opening in 1990.
"What we have set out to achieve with The Ayodya Palace is a dreamy destination in a quiet corner of the Bali Hilton property that is unique in its facilities, amenities and contemporary in design and ambience. The Ayodya Palace is ideal for anyone wanting a new level of exclusive guest experience," said Mr. Ian E. McKie, Director of Hotel Operations.
The transformation has affected every corner of the Palace wing, home to six room categories and four private open areas.
