(4/5/2004)

On Thursday, April 1, 2004, Mr. Clement Barter, President of Conrad Hotels came to Bali to inspect his chain's first Indonesian property and meet with members of the local press corps.

Traveling from his corporate headquarters in Brussels, Barter outlined the 5 - 6 years process necessary to bring a hotel of his company's uncompromising standard to a destination. In addition to the time required to find a suitable location there are also protracted processes that must be completed to design the property, obtain the necessary permits and licenses, and secure financing.

Mr. Barter explained that the fact that the decision to embark on the project of building a 313-room luxury property in Bali was commenced years ago, in the midst of a period of political and economic uncertainty, is reflective of his company's commitment to Indonesia and abiding belief in the brand equity of Bali as a leading tourist destination.

With the opening of the Bali resort, Conrad Hotels brings to 16 the number of hotels it operates worldwide, with six new properties coming on line in the last 3 years. Plans for expansion of the brand call for 50 hotels to be in operation by 2010.

Conrad Hotels currently operates properties in Brussels; London; Dublin and Mount Juliet (Ireland); Cairo, Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt; Istanbul; Hong Kong; Singapore; Bangkok; Uruguay; New York; and most recently, Bali. New properties are nearing completion and scheduled for opening in Phuket (Thailand), Tokyo and Las Vegas.

Mr. Barter expressed his satisfaction with the outstanding quality of the opening team in place at the Bali property and the extensive pre-opening training program completed. At present, some 365 employees work at the Bali property; a number that will grow by another 100 when all rooms and hotel facilities are completely on line.

Mr. Barter predicted that the Bali property would quickly win praise and accolades from the traveling public duplicating the success of the Conrad Bangkok which managed to be cited as Best New Hotel and Best New Business Hotel Worldwide in less than 1 year after its opening in April 2003.

Serving as General Manager for the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa is veteran Bali hotelier, Mr. Michael Burchett who helped open the award winning Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran.
