The Bali Dynasty Resort
Bali Airport & Mount Agung update:
At the time of this newsletter being released, the activity of Mount Agung has prompted officials to temporarily close Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport for the safety of all travellers. The decision was taken after careful consideration by national aviation authorities, the Centre for Geological Disaster Mitigation and the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre. While the sun is shining and there is little sign of volcanic ash in the southern regions of Bali, evidence of volcanic ash at higher altitudes on aviation approach and departure paths has prompted the decision to close the airport. The decision is under continuous review and further information will follow in due course.
Officials advise that people in south Bali - an area some 60-70 kilometres from the volcano - are in no direct threat from the volcano’s eruption. Bali Airport and Bali Dynasty Resort are located 75 kilometres away from Mount Agung. The “danger zone” is a small area within a radius of approximately 10 kilometres from Mount Agung’s crater.
We feel sorry for the disruption the situation has caused to your holiday plans. We suggest our guests contact their airlines' representatives and travel agents in regards to the disruption of flights and accommodation. If you have booked direct to us, either via website, email or by phone, please contact email@example.com for any assistance in regards to your bookings.

Kids’ Birthday Parties with High Flyers Trapeze
Are you looking for something exciting and out of ordinary to celebrate your kid’s birthday? Holding a Kid’s Birthday Party at High Flyers Trapeze School is the perfect solution.
Located within the garden of Bali Dynasty Resort, High Flyers offers a Kid’s Birthday Party with super fun activities. With the package, kids can enjoy the thrill and excitement of the trapeze lesson for 1 hour, then have some fun in the Resort’s Kids’ Water Fun Zone and finally have a good time enjoying the kids’ birthday lunch at H2O.
The package starts from IDR 2,400K for 8 up to 10 children, which is perfect for a great birthday celebration.
Since 2016, Bali Dynasty Resort has been reaching out to the less fortunate people in Bali through a charity project called “Help Friends for Life” in partnership with Solemen. Through this initiative, Bali Dynasty Resort seeks more subjective ways to alleviate the suffering of those who are impoverished and desperately need our help in the way of medical support, health care, education and therapy, as well as by providing items or equipment that can give them a better life and wellbeing.
Through our fundraising efforts, Bali Dynasty Resort has raised in excess of IDR 410 million (over USD 30,000) for this project. The fund has enabled us to support many SoleBuddies with their ongoing long-term care and education, while at the same time helping many individuals with one-off donations, such as wheelchairs, prosthetic legs and medical treatment.
As the charity effort progressed this year, we were able to sponsor bigger projects, including providing a Solemen Car, which transports the needy and their families from the remote areas of Bali to the hospital; funding the Solemen House – a four bedroom haven for poor patients and their families to stay at no cost; and sponsoring the shower and toilet project for an impoverished community in North Bali, giving 26 people access to basic and proper hygiene.
We thank all of our guests for their generous donations and support of our Charity Effort, which has enabled us to provide a sustainable social commitment to help the disadvantaged people in Bali. Our upcoming fundraising activities will be at the Back to Bali Dynasty Party on 10 February 2018 in Perth, which is our biggest annual fundraising effort. In addition, we also accomplish a lot of fundraising within the Resort, through everyday poolside games, donation boxes around the Resort, the voluntary $2 donation when checking out, and the twice-weekly Charity Quiz Night at Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub, held every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm, at which everyone is welcome.

The Denpasar Festival, held in Bali’s provincial capital, is set to return for the ninth time from 28 - 31 December 2017. The event will be centred in Puputan Badung Square and will host various kinds of performances as well as local culinary delights. Denpasar is located around 30 minutes’ drive from Bali Dynasty Resort.
Tour of the Month - Underwater Tour with Marine Walk
The Marine Walk takes place off the west coast of Lembongan Island, approximately 30km southeast of the Bali mainland. The tour takes you four to six metres underwater, as you wear specially designed helmets that allow you to remain submerged – a fun alternative for those who don’t dive.
Bali Marine Walk is a great underwater activity for divers and non-divers alike, as it provides a different perspective and experience to diving. Walking on the ocean bed, a site specifically selected because it is clear enough for walking yet surrounded by a reef brimming with a diverse marine life, marine walkers get to view and interact with colourful schools of fish.
Bali Marine Walk tour starts off at Serangan Harbor, from where a boat speeds you to Lembongan Island in approximately 30 – 45 minutes. Arriving at the white sands of Lembongan, Bali Marine Walk is proud to offer adventure packages for a variety of different groups and a wide range of activities that will fit any adventurer’s wish list. Take a look at all of our different types of adventure packages.
For complete details on Marine Walk activities and for bookings at a special price, please visit the Tour & Information Centre at the Bali Dynasty Resort.
