Bali's AYANA Resort and Spa has distinguished itself by becoming the first hotel in Bali to be certified "Tsunami Ready" after completing a comprehensive audit and staff training program.

The resort's cliff-top location, 35-meters above the Indian Ocean, automatically puts the hotel and its guests at low-risk of any threat from a tsunami; a fact that did not deter the AYANA from taking every precaution to protect its guests from any emergency.

"We may be considered low-risk because of our cliff-top location, but that is no reason to be complacent," said AYANA's General Manager Charles de Foucault. "This certification will enable us to safeguard our guests and also assist with people from outside the hotel who may come to Ayana to seek refuge on higher ground, in case of a tsunami."

AYANA's 78-private villas and 290-room hotel are located on high cliffs above Jimbaran Bay, on Bali's southwestern peninsula. The resort occupies 77 hectares of cliff-top land along a 1.3 kilometer coastline. Most of the resort's facilities are located on the cliff-top, although beach-front facilities comprising the iconic Rock Bar, Spa on the Rocks treatment villas, Ocean Beach Pool, Kisik Seafood Restaurant and the private Kubu Beach - are near the ocean's edge.

Alexander Kesper, senior advisor to the Indonesian Ministry of Culture and Tourism, congratulated AYANA on being the first hotel to achieve certification, despite it not being at high-risk. "Ayana exceeded our standards in terms of safety and evacuation procedures.  As a Tsunami Ready Hotel, guests can be sure that a well-prepared team will take care of them in case of emergency," Alex said. "Significantly, the resort's management showed great initiative as they had already registered for Tsunami Ready certification before the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March; A disaster that drives home the need for other hotels to be prepared, especially those located on beach-front land."

Tsunami Readiness is actively supported by Bali Hotels Association in cooperation with the Indonesian Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).
