An Evening of Art in Modern Luxury

Westin Resort Nusa Dua's Grand Launch.


(5/1/2004)

Westin Resort Nusa Dua's Grand Launch A US$5 million refurbishment program now finally completed, Westin Resort, Nusa Dua held an evening of Art in Modern Luxury on Friday, April 30, 2004, to launch its new name and refurbished splendor to 200 community figures and VIP overseas guests.

The evening commenced with a cocktail reception in the new, brighter and seemingly more spacious lobby of The Resort. In keeping with the evening's theme of art and luxury, works of art and fine design by Runa Gallery, Ni Nyoman Sani, Petter Solheim, I Made Suamba, Agus Pande, Heliconia, Seiki Torige and I Gusti Lanang Gede Atmaja complemented the luxurious setting of the Westin's lobby with a display of Bali's leading exponents of painting, jewelry, stone sculpture, fine glass work, floral arrangement and photography. Exotic cocktails, delicious canapés and fine art – all present in copious quantities together with music presented by Bali's premier new age musical group - Balawan.

Dinner is Served

Well greeted and refreshed, guests continued on to the Resort's newly-renovated poolside area – now touted as the largest freeform freshwater pool in Bali, for a lavish dinner and formal opening ceremony.

Mr. Rosano Barack, President Director of PT Nusa Dua Graha International - the Resort's owning Company, welcomed the guests recalling, "our property joined ITT Sheraton in May 1993 and our decision to embrace the Westin brand started in 2002." Stressing that despite the challenges of recent times, the shareholders had honored their commitment to reinvest in the property, demonstrating their confidence in Bali and Indonesia in general.

Then, Mr. Oliver Bonke, Vice President Sales and Marketing of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Asia Pacific, the parent company of Westin, came to the stage where he highlighted the program of continuing improvements in the dynamic Westin brand worldwide. The keynote address of the evening was delivered by Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mr. I Gede Ardika, who congratulate the Owners and Westin on their latest achievement.

All three men then joined hands to press a button that launched an impressive fireworks display that lit the tropical sky above the Resort.

With staff and tables all elegantly attired in black, an Asia-Pacific culinary journey through the world of Westin was presented with recipes created by chefs from five Westin hotels Thailand, Japan, China, Malaysia and Australia.

National TV personality and Bali native, Sandrina Malakiano, served as Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
