Welcome to the April 2012 edition of the Bali Dynasty Newsletter.
It looks very much like we have finally seen the end of the rainy season which has been a very wet one. We have just enjoyed a busy Easter Holiday period.
The coming weeks bring lower humidity and dry cool winds to Bali, which means Kite flying season on the island and the colourful Bali Kite Festival.
In this month’s Newsletter we look at into our current promotion at the Upper Deck H2O, our Golden Lotus promotion, some new pool activities and give you the latest on our new Spa renovation
Of course we look around the resort at other news and happenings.
We hope you enjoy the read and look forward to seeing you soon at Bali Dynasty Resort.

Our new vision of PRIME stands for People Responsible Individually for Managing Excellence. In building responsibility amongst all team members we have recently implemented Key Performance Indicators throughout our entire team at the Bali Dynasty Resort. Previously this was only for Management. Now every single person has four key performance indicators that they are reviewed on a monthly basis.
The indicators are quite often data that we are collecting from you, our guests, in order to make our assessments most objective. All questionnaires for example, whether they be restaurant, hotel, spa or even babysitting are analysed, entered into a computer system and produce scores for the staff members. Even more than ever, we now need and appreciate your support in telling us how we are doing. So please help us my giving us honest feedback when you are staying in the resort, this enables us as management to understand the “guest experience” and correct even the slightest issues to ensure our future guests receive even better service.
