On Tuesday, June 22, 2004, Harris Resort Kuta held its Grand Opening ceremony at a cocktail event attended by more than 100 tourism industry figures and local dignitaries. Well-known Indonesian hotelier and founder of PT Indonesian Paradise Island - the Resort's owning company, Professor Dr. H. Sukamdani Gitosardjono, officiated at a symbolic release of balloons marking the official opening of the property to the public.
Marc Steinmeyer of Harris Hotels & Resorts, who is also the President Director of Tauzia Hotels & Leisure Consulting, applauded the team at the Resort for their enthusiasm and hard work in opening the third property of the brand in Indonesia. After only two years, Harris International operates two hotels in Bali and a third in Batam. The Company is now working towards the opening of its fourth hotel in Jakarta scheduled for 2005.
At the opening, Jean Charles Le Coz, General Manager of Harris Resort Kuta spoke of the "simple, unique and friendly concept which is conveyed through every aspect of the hotel."
Located on Bali's famous Kuta Beach Boulevard, Harris Resort Kuta offers 191 guest rooms, including 11 suites and 4 family rooms. The hotel provides a Kids' Club, proudly spotlights local food in its restaurant, and offers pampering at its Giri Loka Spa and Fitness Center. There is also the Harris Cafe, 24-hour reception with a cyber-corner, free-form swimming pool, gym, room service, boutique, laundry and valet service, conference and meeting facilities with audio-visual equipment, and a kids' pool with a waterslide.
The property was established through the acquisition and total renovation of a satellite wing of its next door neighbor, the Sahid Raya Hotel.
