Charity Effort supports Aspiring Artist
The Bali Dynasty Resort has recently committed to supporting a young aspiring artist from a small remote hamlet in North Eastern Bali of which the resort previously sponsored the school back in 2000. I Wayan Lias is a young and very talented artist from Cegi and wanted to continue his education at the Fine Art Faculty at the University UNDIKSHA in Singaraja, for a degree in Fine Arts.
Lias is one of the students who stands out amongst other young artists and is an excellent painter. At his home in Cegi he works in a little studio which he built himself and shares his experience and expertise with other villagers interested in Art.
A selection of Lias' art will be available for sale at the resort and 50% of the money raised will directly go to supporting his education. After his graduation he will go back to the village to teach the knowledge he gained during his study to the community for the betterment of his community, especially for the younger generation.
Australia has dropped its travel warning for Indonesia to its lowest level since the 2002 Bali bombings. The "Reconsider your need to travel" warning has been challenged for the past ten years by the tourism body as well as the Bali Hotels Association. Ironically Australian arrivals in the last ten years have risen from 238.857 visitors in 2001 to 790,965 visitors in 2011 (thats an increase of 231%) and Australians are now the number one visitor to Bali respresenting nearly 30% of total arrivals.
The new warning advises travellers to “exercise a high degree of caution” when in Indonesia. We are living in a changing world and we all are more aware and conscious of the threats terrorism presents wherever we travel.
This change puts Indonesia at the same level of threat as Thailand, the Philippines and India.
The foreign office still cautions against visiting Central Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua and West Papua provinces, keeping these areas under the “reconsider your need to travel” listing.
Another winning race for Charity
Following our announcement back in February when we told you about avid dog racers and regular returnees, Graham and Noela Haswell who bought a greyhound and named it "Gracie Kelly's". Graham and Noela pledged that 10% from their 50% profit would go to the Bali Dynasty Resort Charity Effort!
Gracie Kelly had had a few lucky winning streaks and has been building up some prize money however a few weeks ago suffered a leg injury racing at Ipswich and therefore has had to stop racing whilst the leg heals, so we hope to see Gracie Kelly back racing in early June!
We'll keep you updated of any races on our Facebook so you can place a bet!
As part of the commitment to continually improve and innovate, the Bali Dynasty Resort's team of supervisors recently completed "Out of the Box" leadership training which was conducted by Solutionworks, the hotels external training consultant who conduct regular training for both Management and Supervisors to ensure the continual development of our team at the Bali Dynasty Resort.
Family Outing at the Bali Safari & Marine Park
To celebrate another successfull year and in appreciation to all the staff members, the Bali Dynasty Resort held their annual Family Outing in April 2012 inviting over 1200 employees and dependents over a 4 day period at the Bali Safari & Marine Park.
The family outing is to show the appreciation for the support of all the families of the employees who give their physical and moral support to our team members enabling them to come to work each day. Without happy employees we would not have happy customers and that is why so much emphasis is placed on our employees and employees are considered our biggest asset.
