Brad Kirk, General Manager of Sanur's Bali Hyatt welcomed his guests, calling it one of the best days of the year, and with good reason.
On Saturday, July 31, 2004, representatives of the hotel's various departments gathered on the beach for a fun-filled morning of friendly competition at the annual Bali Hyatt Kite Festival.
For weeks before the event, representatives from each of the hotel's departments gathered in secret clusters at undisclosed locations around Sanur to work together in building the most beautiful and aerodynamic kite to compete in the hotel-wide competition. Hoping to walk away with the winner's trophy and prizes, the housekeepers, engineers, spa personnel, front office staff, gardeners, and food and beverage personnel designed magnificent, large kites to be launched aloft along the beach to the delight of guests and the careful scrutiny of a panel of judges.
Kites in the shape of a Koi fish, a giant turtle, a flying zebra, and an airborne scuba diver were just some of the many creative designs sent aloft by the resort's staff. Balinese in spirit and character, all the kite teams wore traditional Balinese dress and each launching was accompanied by the music of the hotel's gamelan orchestra.
The winner of the Bali Hyatt Resort's Kite Festival was the Front Office/Sales team entry, shown proudly displaying their kite on balidiscovery.com.
