Our Star Performers
Every month we hold a staff gathering, where we celebrate our staff birthdays and present an update on new hotel products and services. Here are our winners for November 2010. These staff have excelled in their duties and the services offered to our guests. We also have a Guest Nomination Award and this award is chosen by our guests who fill in the guest nomination forms when they are departing the Resort after their holiday.
Congratulations once again go out to our Star performers this month
Our Employee of the Month for Front of the House is Ketut Ardanayasa, or Yasa as his friends call him.
He may be a familiar face to some of you as he works in the Housekeeping department keeping your room clean.
Yasa lives in Denpasar with his wife and two children and is passionate about motorcycles as his hobby.
Yasa joined Bali Dynasty in 1991, so is actually older than he looks!!
Our Employee of the Month Heart of the House is Wayan Budiarsa, or Budi.
Budi works at the Accounting Department and is somewhat of a superstar as he loves being involved with all the staff stage shows we do.
Budi lives in Denpasar with his 2 Children who are obviously destined for showbusiness.
Budi has been with the resort since 1996.
Finally our Guest Nomination for November is Ngurah Suarbawa from the Housekeeping Department.
He is quite a familiar face and well known by many of our guests.
His three children keep him busy during hometime and he has been with Bali Dynasty since 1990 almost when the hotel first opened.
Congratulations to all our winners!

Very impressed with breakfast – a huge range on food and is yummy. I have been to Bali 10x over the years and it was the best breakfast anywhere. Miss D, Australia
New renovations are great. The walk in shower in the room is really good. The shelf under the basin is a great idea.
Having breakfast by the pool is great, much nicer than in the restaurant. The staff are very professional and know exactly what you want.
