August tradionally is a busy month with the Eurpean visitors to the island and many Australians taking last minute escapes from the cold winter down under! We have also enjoyed hosting a lot of conferences over the month of August as well, so we have been kept very busy!
It's a great time of year with beautiful temperatures and low humidity, this "mediteranean" style weather makes it the best time of year to visit Bali between June and October, so if you have not booked a trip yet then make sure you do before it heats up!
In this edition we will update you on all the specials we are offering and those "little" extra touches which make the Bali Dynasty Resort such a great integrated resort, catering to all age groups.
We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back again soon!
International Coastal Cleanup Day
Coastal Cleanup Day on September 20th is dedicated to the improvement of beaches, coastal regions and surrounding areas throughout the world. It purports to be the largest volunteer event in the world, and has operated for over 26 years.
Each year millions of eco-friendly warriors from all over the world help to clear trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and oceans. Thanks to these volunteers recording every article collected, Ocean Conservancy gains accurate insight into the manufactured items which are impacting our planet’s health.
Cleanups alone can’t solve this pollution problem. Nevertheless, the Ocean Trash Index provides a snapshot of what’s polluting our oceans so we can work to prevent specific items from reaching the water in the first place.
The Bali Dynasty Resort will take part in this event along with over 50 other hotels and organisations in Bali doing their part to preserve the oceans.

On the 17th August some of the Bali Dynasty Management team visited Pengalusan, one of the hamlets in East Bali the Bali Dynasty supports through the East Bali Poverty Project.
The occasion was the Children’s Indonesian Independence day party that they put on for all their families. There are fun sports activities between the different schools and each school presents a cabaret show.
From Sanur we headed North East towards Mount Agung on a cool crisp clear day for the one and a half hour journey.The scenery is stunning with the mighty Mount Agung dominating the landscape. The Children had set up their sports and stage area at a dry river bed as they do each year.
We arrived just in time for the flag raising ceremony with all the children dressed in their school uniforms standing in orderly lines saluting their flag and singing their national anthem. All very formal, but very moving.
The Bali Dynasty Resort, as in previous years, sponsored the Hygiene kits for each of all students and tutors of the 6 schools which consisted of towels, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste as well as fresh fruit to remind the villagers of the importance of good personal hygiene and healthy nutrition.
The Bali Dynasty Team, accompanied by the project director, went to inspect the school at Pengalusan which Bali Dynasty Resort has been supporting since 2000. The villagers are quite isolated and remote from the rest of Bali and extremely poor.
You can help our Charity effort by supporting the ‘TWO Dollar to Check out’ program, donating your small change in our donation boxes around the resort, by joining the twice weekly Charity Quiz Nights in Gracie Kelly’s and purchasing Bali Dynasty Merchandise, of which a percentage is donated to Charity.
