Bali’s First and Only Original Irish Pub
South Kuta beach strip, with its numerous chic restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities, is home to a little-yet-bold touch of the Emerald Isle. Located in the lower lobby of our resort, Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub welcomes all guests who wish to experience a true taste of Ireland in Bali.
As you walk through the wooden doors, you’ll immediately feel that you have been transported to another place and time. The interior adopts the theme of a traditional Irish country cottage pub combined with the traditional Irish shop pub theme, which recreates the ambience of an old-style general store that can be found in every small Irish town. This creates the perfect atmosphere whether you are looking for a good watering hole with friendly staff or a fun place to socialise with fellow travellers.
There are so many things to do at Gracie Kelly’s. Come with your group to watch your favourite sports on Gracie’s big screen TVs, or to play billiards and darts, all in air-conditioned comfort. Sing along and dance to your favourite songs being performed by the live band. The band is there to entertain every night at 8pm. Or simply feast on Gracie’s delicious wholesome home-cooked meals which are perfectly combined with one or two pints of cold draught Guinness from the bar.
There’s also a twice-weekly Quiz Night on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm where anyone can join the fun answering the trivial questions and winning some great prizes, while at the same time donating to a good cause to support Solemen helping the disadvantaged in Bali.
On St. Patrick’s Day last March, Gracie Kelly’s was also included in the list of the top 15 Irish Pubs outside Ireland to celebrate the holiday by Expedia Ireland, proving that its name has even been heard miles away in the Green Isle. The feature can be seen here!
Open daily from 11am until late, Gracie Kelly’s offers not only good food and quenching drinks, but also a day or night out with those who matter to you!
Bali Dynasty Resort to Sponsor Iluh Juni and Komang Juniasih
Bali Dynasty Resort continues to help more individuals through the SoleNeeds Programme, which is designed to help alleviate the suffering of the disadvantaged by providing one-off donations. The individuals who the Resort has committed to help are 6-year-old Iluh Juni and 15-year-old Komang Juniasih.
Iluh Juni was born with a congenital heart defect and requires surgery. Unfortunately she had never seen a doctor. She is now taking medication to stabilise her condition after consulting with the doctor while waiting for the next stage of her treatment.
Komang Juniasih had her leg amputated 4 weeks ago due to a birth deformity. She regularly developed sores to her foot due to her gait and it was also affecting her hip and back.
Their current medical expenses will be covered by Bali Dynasty Resort Charity Effort, which is committed to give back to the community and help those in need. Thank you for your generous support toward our charity account.
Garuda Airlines ranked in Top 10 Airlines by TripAdvisor
Indonesia’s national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has been included in the list of the Top 10 Airlines Worldwide released by travel site TripAdvisor. The airline clocks in at number ten.
The list is part of the site's ‘Traveler’s Choice Awards’, which are based on the quantity and quality of airline reviews and ratings submitted by travellers worldwide over the last 12 months.
Joining Garuda Indonesia on the list are other Southeast Asian companies including Singapore Airlines and THAI Smile, in second and eighth place, respectively.
After recent improvements, Garuda is no stranger to such awards. Last November, the company was named Most Improved Airline.
Ubud Food Festival
This festival sees its third year running as an exciting three-day culinary extravaganza from 12th to 14th May 2017 in Bali's cultural heartland of Ubud.
This year, the Ubud Food Festival will focus on the theme of ‘Every Flavour is a Story’. The theme celebrates Indonesia’s culinary heritage, in which every ingredient, recipe and culinary tradition tells a story of the archipelago’s history, geography and diverse cultures. The theme also reflects on the journey from producer to plate; from forging relationships with local growers to fostering awareness of broader ecological and industry trends that are shaping Indonesia’s – and the world’s – culinary landscape.
Alongside Indonesian chefs, restaurateurs, producers and food professionals, celebrated culinary icons from around the world will dish up a programme rich in fresh tastes and fresh ideas.
Vesak Day – 11 May 2017
Vesak Day or Waisak is a holiday observed traditionally by Buddhists, marking the birth of Prince Siddharta Gautama. The date varies each year on the Gregorian calendar but usually occurs in April or May, and in June on leap years. Unique to Buddhists in Bali is that some rituals share a slight resemblance to Balinese Hindu features, such as the use of temple ornaments.
Tour of the Month - Green Bikes Bali
A Great New Cycling Experience with Electric Bikes from Green Bikes Bali
You may not be a dedicated cyclist but if you would simply like to experience touring quietly through Bali’s beautiful natural surroundings on a bike, Green Bikes Bali has the perfect solution for you with their easy to use eBikes.
Green Bikes Bali offers a new eco-friendly way to enjoy the beautiful and unspoiled nature of Bali with their electric bike tours. With two routes for you to choose, you can enjoy exploring the Jatiluwih area which is popular for its rice terraces and has become a UNESCO heritage site, or down to Ubud via country lanes, alongside rivers and through villages while interacting with local people. This will be a great experience as these areas were previously less accessible to cyclists due to their mountainous location.
What makes Green Bikes Bali different from other cycling tours besides being “off the beaten track” is the option to do afternoon tours in addition to the regular morning tours. All tour packages includes transfer from and to the hotel, eBikes and helmet, mineral water, professional cycling tour guide, raincoat, medical insurance, cold towel and lunch or afternoon tea at the finish point. The tours will normally take two hours and are open for anyone between 14 and 64 years of age.
Green Bikes Bali’s eBikes are of the best quality and easy to use, and therefore allow you to do the tours with as much or as little effort as you choose without losing the fun experience that a bicycle ride gives. The tour also has a 100% safety record and comes with insurance, so that you can enjoy the ride worry-free.
Explore Bali like never before with these trips. Book now at the Tour & Information Centre at the Lobby, and be entitled to up to 15% off the normal price.
