On Monday, December 22, 2003, a cocktail party for 150 members of the local travel industry was held in the recently refurbished lobby of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali to celebrate the launch of the Westin brand on the Island.
The former Sheraton Nusa Indah Resort has been not only renamed but totally reinvigorated following an extensive US$ 5 million refurbishment program. The 355-room resort is located within the Nusa Dua Complex and is physically linked to the nearby Bali International Convention Center, Bali's only dedicated facility for conferences and exhibitions.
A brief speech by the Resort's General Manager, Michel Cottray, was followed by the unveiling of the new name at the lobby entrance. A lavish buffet was served in the lobby, redesigned by Hirsch Bedner Associates, accompanied by a fashion parade by award winning Avant Garde designer Kiata Kwanda.
"In spite of the trying events of the past 12 - 15 months, the island of Bali remains a very enticing destination and the favorite holiday spot to international travelers as voted by TIME
Asia readers for the third consecutive year. Westin Hotels and Resorts is proud to have chosen Bali to be home to the one and only Westin in Indonesia, becoming at the same time the 122nd Westin property worldwide," said Cottray.
