Happy New Year to all our Readers and wishing you all a prosperous 2012!
All the Management & Staff would like to express our sincere thanks to all our guests for your support and patronage in 2011.
2011 has certainly been a time of change for us at the hotel as we continued to upgrade our facilities. In February 2012 we will be making some minor improvements to our facilities with an upgrade of the kids pool with a complete new Kids Water Fun Zone and the construction of a new spa. Read more about it in our newsletter.
The busy Festive Season may be over, but the celebrations continue as we will greet Australia Day on the 26th of January and we celebrate Valentines Day on 14 February with romantic dinner specials.
In this issue we introduce our delicious ‘must try’ Spring Chicken promotion at Golden Lotus, inform you on the construction start of a new toll road in Bali and of course another reminder of the upcoming ‘Back to Bali Dynasty’ Charity event in Perth on the 11th of February in case some of you haven't had the chance yet to book your tickets.
We hope you enjoy the read.
See you soon at the Bali Dynasty Resort!
New Toll Road Under Construction in Bali
New Toll Road Under Construction in Bali
The island's first Bali toll road, connecting Benoa and Nusa Dua, has officially kicked off construction last December 21, 2011.
Bali's first toll road, the Benoa-Nusa Dua toll road, along with the Dewa Ruci underpass, is the Bali villa island's latest efforts to cope with the severe traffic in Bali congestion that has been known to strangle its main tourist route.
The two Bali transportation projects are set to be completed by May 2013, just in time for the APEC Meeting in 2013 and the Bali Summer Summit in 2013.
The toll road, connecting Benoa harbor, Ngurah Rai International Airport, and the Nusa Dua tourism enclave, is a 12-kilometer toll road that comprises a 8.12-kilometer elevated toll road, a 1.58-kilometer access road to the airport, and a 2.2-kilometer access road at the Benoa port.
Showing an estimated cost of Rp 2.49 trillion (US$273.9 million), this elevated roadway will be built on 18,000 concrete pillars with pylons suspending the highway over a protected mangrove forest.
