After successfully completing a series of intensive simulation exercises and evacuation drills, the hotel has won the right to claim this impressive certification. This certification was recently carried out by ‘Tsunami Ready’ – a private certification company that has won the support of the Bali Hotels Association (BHA) in cooperation with Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy.

The Resort’s team leaders now possess specific skills needed in the event of a tsunami event. These exercises involved the detailed processes and procedures for the evacuation of guests to safety and securing Resort assets.

"As a beach-front property on the beautiful shore of Jimbaran Bay it was imperative for us to achieve this certification. All of our colleagues conducted themselves in a most professional manner and did us all proud throughout the evaluation process. In the event of this type of emergency guests can rest assured that they will be in safe hands and in a safe location at the InterContinental Bali Resort," said Tom Meyer, General Manager of InterContinental Bali Resort.

InterContinental Bali Resort is the first International Hotel Group (IHG) Property and the third hotel in Bali to receive “tsunami ready” certification. It hopes to set a positive example for other hotels within the region, especially island based resorts that are close to the sea in high-risk coastal locations.
