Bali's Governor Dewa Beratha took time from his busy schedule on Wednesday, May 16, 2007, to visit the Island's newest luxury boutique property - Bulgari Resort and officially sign a plaque marking the hotel's opening. In doing so the Governor fulfilled a belated promise to officially "open" the hotel when earlier travel commitments prevented him from attending the formal opening held on September 25, 2006.

Inspecting the 59-unit luxury property that boasts one of Bali's highest published room rates, the Governor was impressed with the standard of the facilities and commanding view of the Indian Ocean guests staying at the Resort enjoy. Reflecting on the Bulgari Resort's room rates which can range from US$1,300 to US$6,500 per night - depending on room category, the Governor told those attending the ceremony that hotels of this caliber are "exactly what Bali needs."

Jokingly pointing out that the cost of one night at the Hotel exceeded his monthly salary several times over, the Governor applauded the outstanding facilities suggesting that the present 5-star rating system for Indonesian hotels was somehow inadequate to describe the guest experience presented by the Bulgari.

Bali's Bulgari Resort, according to its owner who spoke at the ceremony, represents a total investment of US$40 million.
