(4/4/2009)

On April 1, 2009, Ayana Resort and Spa welcomed its first guest under its new brand and revamped management team as it bid farewell to Ritz-Carlton, Bali Resort & Spa.

Deriving its new name from a Sanskrit word for "place of refuge", Ayana Resorts new logo is now in evidence on menus, stationery, uniforms and every other aspect of the 5-star resort's operation located on the Ungasan peninsula of South Bali.

Assuming control at the Ayana Resort & Spa is its new General manager, Charles de Foucault, who has replaced the popular David Wilson, who headed the Bali Ritz-Carlton team for a number of years.

Ayana Resort & Spa is operating under a management agreements with West Paces Hotels - a company formed by former Ritz-Carlton executive Horst Schulze.

Charles de Foucault - General Manager

Charles de Foucault brings 30 years of hotel experience to his new Bali assignment, including 17 years with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Group. Past assignments have included stints in Bahrain, New Delhi and Bangalore.

"I've been in the hotel business for over 30 years, and you don't get opportunities like this very often, to work in a destination as beautiful and rewarding as Bali, managing a property as amazing as Ayana," said de Foucault, a French national who is also fluent in his native tongue, English and German.

"I am thrilled to be working with Ayana's owners, who have developed this incredible property over almost 13 years. This resort is a one-of-a-kind, offering guests complete immersion in an authentic, intimate Balinese experience soaking up the culture, hospitality, tranquility and stunning location, and that remains truer today than ever before."

To celebrate its grand opening, Ayana hosted a reception for 650 guests, media and travel partners in its new avant-garde Champa Garden, a multi-faceted 20,000 square meter outdoor venue. Under a canopy of 2,000 frangipani trees surrounded by tiered water fountains, guests received a hint of the refined elegance and Balinese warmth of promised under the Ayana brand. A dramatic tek tekan performance involving 100 Balinese men playing traditional bamboo instruments and 21 Garuda Wisnu Kencana dancers complemented the occasion, together with a live performance from Indonesia's famous "touch tapping" guitarist Wayan Balawan and his band Batuan Ethnic Fusion.

Ayana's new logo draws on Balinese concept of Tri Hita Kirana which demands perfect balance between God, man and nature. The logo depicts a tree of life with intertwining plants, flowers and wildlife – all in an azure blue, reflecting how the waters of the majestic Indian Ocean merge with azure sky at the resort. The logo was created by renowned Japanese graphics artist Hiromura Masaaki, who has created logos for some of the world's most recognized brands including the Nissan Motor Design Center in Japan.
