Welcome to the latest edition of the Bali Dynasty Resort e-newsletter!
The month of August has come around very quickly and preparations are already underway to commemorate Indonesian Independence Day. Expect to see Indonesia’s national red and white flag displayed all across the island of Bali as a symbol of patriotism. Here at the resort, we’ll be celebrating the 17th August with an array of special promotions including a themed dinner at the Sen5es restaurant and generously discounted cocktails at Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub.
Read on for details about our new spa promotion to pamper your body at the Ashoka Spa during the holidays.
We also share further updates regarding our ongoing charity program in partnership with Solemen to finalise the Bali Dynasty Recovery Centre. We have been able to set up 10 bedrooms, but we are still in need of further funds to provide a kitchen, bathroom and other necessary facilities.
We trust that you enjoy reading through our newsletter and stay updated by following our Instagram and Facebook page.
Hope to see you in August!
Independence Day Themed Dinner
Embrace the spirit of Indonesian Independence Day with a traditional culinary experience.
On 17th August 2019, Bali Dynasty Resort will be hosting a special dining event from 6pm to 10pm to spice things up in celebration of Indonesia’s 74th anniversary.
Our Balinese Rijsttafel dinner will take place in the decorated ambience of Sen5es Restaurant featuring colourful souvenir stalls showcasing local arts and crafts. The word rijsttafel is a Dutch term that literally translates as ‘rice table’. It is a shared dining concept that dates back to colonial times when esteemed guests were welcomed with a lavish Indonesian feast presenting many different dishes.
Savour an elaborate four-course meal including a starter, soup, rice accompanied by various main dishes, vegetables and sambal condiments. Offering a selection of tasting sized portions served family style, this dinner is the perfect introduction to the exotic flavours of local cuisine. A buffet of traditional sweet treats will also be available to round off this unique culinary adventure. It is priced at only IDR 360.000 nett for two people.
Release your tension with two-hours of personal indulgence that will leave you feeling nurtured and revived. Pure Harmony by Ashoka Spa will introduce you an array of relaxing rituals inspired by Indonesia’s traditional wellness heritage. This revitalising package begins with a gentle foot bath to soothe walk-weary toes. It continues with a relaxing full body massage to melt away muscular tension followed by a sauna session to open pores and eliminate toxins. After that, your entire body will be covered by a cucumber mask to give your skin a new lease of life. The experience draws to a close with a refreshing shower, ear candle treatment and a complimentary serve of hot ginger lime tea. Pure Harmony is available until the end of September 2019 for just IDR 595K per person.
Come and join us to celebrate Indonesia’s 74th year of independence at Gracie Kelly’s, Bali’s first Irish Pub.
We have prepared an extra special promotion to make you smile on Saturday, 17th August 2019. Enjoy a 25% discount on selected house cocktails from 12noon until 5pm. Be entertained by upbeat jukebox music along with pool tables, darts and other fun activities. Alternatively, watch your favourite sporting events on the big screen in air-conditioned comfort surrounded by likeminded supporters.

Bali Dynasty Resort has always been more than just a hotel. Apart from welcoming travellers from around the globe, we are committed to helping those less fortunate within the local community.
Working together with Solemen, a Bali-based charity organisation, we have been able to fund life-saving operations, provide access to essential medical care, source equipment for the physically disabled, and much more. To date, we have been able to take care of approximately 2,000 people since we first began supporting Solemen in 2016.
Through our ‘Helping Friends for Life’ initiative and with the support from you, our guests, we recently commenced our biggest charity project yet. The Bali Dynasty Recovery Centre is a care facility with a home environment that aims to provide the support and resources required to keep families together before, during, and after medical treatment. Strategically located on the ground floor of the new Solemen Centre in Kuta, this nurturing facility is sponsored exclusively by Bali Dynasty Resort. So far, we have successfully managed to create and furnish a total of 10 comfortable bedrooms.
Our efforts don’t just stop there and there is still much more to be accomplished. Therefore, we are urgently seeking funds to finalise the kitchen, lounge, and bathrooms. Numerous items such as lounge chairs, kids’ equipment, crockery, cutlery, baby bottles, kitchen utensils, rice storage, linen, a TV, dining furniture and medical suppliers are all needed.
You can be a part of this exciting project by participating in our Quiz Nights at Gracie Kelly’s, contributing to our Dollar/night program, or making a direct donation to our charity boxes during your stay or via GoFundMe (https://www.gofundme.com/f/solemen-recovery-centre).
Every $1 helps in getting this sanctuary ready for those desperately in need of medical care. We thank you in advance for your kind consideration.
