Welcome to the November 2013 edition of the Bali Dynasty Newsletter.
The seasonal rains have just begun in Bali to cool things down and keep the island green. That reminds us of the Festive Season which is now fast approaching. Soon it's time again to unwrap the Christmas tree, hang up the Christmas decorations and prepare for all the great upcoming events! Still haven't figured out what to buy for Christmas, our Gift Vouchers make a great present!
In this edition we also share with you how we raise funds for the Bali Dynasty Charity Effort together with the staff members of the resort on the 29th of November and the great fun we had recently with over 1000 people at the yearly family outing at the Waterbom Park!

Family outing at the Waterbom Bali
To celebrate another successfull year and in appreciation to all the staff members and their families who have supported them throughout the year, the Bali Dynasty Resort held its' annual Family Outing in November 2013 hosting over 1040 employees and dependents over a 4 day period at the Waterbom Park Bali.
The family outing is to show our appreciation to all the families of the employees who give their physical and moral support to our team members. Without happy employees we would not have happy guests and that is why so much emphasis is placed on our employees who we all know are our biggest asset.
Bali Dynasty goes mobile
With so many people accessing websites with their mobile devices nowadays, finding it much more convenient to rely on their iPhones and/or iPads instead of their computers for researching, shopping and reading news and magazines online whenever and wherever they like. We are pleased to share with you that our website is now mobile friendly and ready to receive your online enquires!
The staff members of the Bali Dynasty Resort have organized their own Charity Bazaar on Friday, 29 November 2013 to raise funds for the Bali Dynasty Charity Effort, supporting the education of children in a small hamlet in North Eastern Bali which the resort has sponsored since 2000.
For the Charity Bazaar staff donated second hand clothes, books, bags, shoes and anything else they might be able to sell to their fellow staff members. 100% of the money raised went to the Charity Effort.
The Charity Bazaar enables our employees to demonstrate their caring for others by giving a little something to those less fortunate. The bazaar is scheduled to take place every quarter so should you have anything to donate please drop them off at reception.
