Welcome to the August edition of Bali Dynasty Resort’s e-Newsletter.
August brought the Independence Day spirit to the Resort as we commemorated Indonesia’s 72nd Independence Day. Our celebration at the Resort was particularly special this year as we organised some traditional Indonesian games for our guests, which everybody loved. In addition to the games, as always, we also took this opportunity to give back to the community by organising a blood donation event, and opening the Solemen House – a safe haven for disadvantaged families to stay at while undergoing hospital treatment.
We are excited to share details of the Christmas Festivities at the Bali Dynasty Resort, which you can now start to book; you can read all about it below. September is a good time to show some appreciation to dads and the men who figure in our lives. And what’s a better way to do so than to indulge them with some amazing treatments specially designed for men at Ashoka Spa? Also, be sure to scroll down below to read about our Wedding Package if you plan to get married in Bali.
All in all, we hope you enjoy reading the newsletter. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. See you soon at the Resort!

Following the success of the Solemen Charity Car (a courtesy car that transports the needy and their families from the remote areas of Bali to the hospital) in January 2017, Bali Dynasty Resort continues to help the disadvantaged by sponsoring the Solemen House in Renon, Denpasar. Fully operated by Solemen Indonesia, the house is a massive help for the poor and their families who live far away from the hospital, and for whom basic needs such as sleeping or bathing are a rare extravagance.
The house features four bedrooms, two shared bathrooms, a living room and a communal kitchen with running water and electricity. To complete the house, the Bali Dynasty Resort has also donated many of the furnishings, including beds, TV, fridges and more. Located on Jalan Tukad Oos in Renon, the house is within close proximity to the Sanglah Hospital, the main and most complete hospital facility in Bali. Transfer to and from the hospital is easily organised at no cost via Bali Dynasty Resort’s charity car, which is operating every day.
The house was opened on the 31st of July 2017. The first guests were the family of Setya Artini, from Karangasem, East Bali, whose baby suffers from a heart condition and Down syndrome.
AirAsia Indonesia to Connect Bali and Calcutta
AirAsia Indonesia, the local affiliate of Southeast Asia's largest low-cost airline, AirAsia, will begin operating a new route connecting Bali with Calcutta, India, on 1st October 2017. The flights will use an Airbus A320 airplane, which has a 180-seat capacity.
The flights from Bali to Calcutta will take around seven and a half hours, including a short transit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and will operate four times weekly. Flights will depart from Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport at 8.20 p.m. and arrive in Kolkata at 1.25 a.m.
This new service is expected to ease access for Indian tourists visiting Bali and offer alternative options for Indonesians wanting to visit Calcutta, a city full of historical and rich cultural sites.
BALINALE International Film Festival
BALINALE will kick off its 11th year on 24th September, and will run until 30th September 2017 at the CINEMAXX in Lippo Mall Kuta, only 5 minutes on foot from the Bali Dynasty Resort.
The theme for this year’s event is “Connecting Communities through the World of Film” – encouraging films as the means to promote tolerance and acceptance of diversified cultures.
BALINALE 2017 pre-festival activities will complement the expanded main programme of daily performances, children’s activities, student workshops, a nationwide film competition & roadshow, plus a free open-air cinema for a community that has grown to love and eagerly anticipate this annual festival.
There will also be special screenings with 'Filmmaker in attendance', where the artists and filmmakers are present to introduce their films and meet the audience.
The BALINALE period offers a fun additional activity for movie-goers holidaying in Bali.
