‘Help Friends For Life’ Brings Smiles to Many

05 December 2017


Tuban, 5 December 2017 - 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 many fundraising efforts, Bali Dynasty Resort has raised in excess of IDR 410 million (over USD 30,000) for this project. The fund has enabled the Resort 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, Bali Dynasty Resort was also 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.


Bali Dynasty Resort is a member of Prime Plaza Hotels & Resorts and is one of South Kuta’s well established beachside family resorts, renowned for its warm Balinese hospitality. An award winning resort with 313 rooms and suites, it offers a huge array of fun facilities that keeps everyone entertained. Strategically located on the famous South Kuta Beach strip, Bali Dynasty Resort is only ten minutes’ drive from the airport and located within walking distance of many small restaurants and bars, Kuta Art Market, as well as Waterbom Park and two large shopping malls.

Yayasan Solemen Indonesia or simply “Solemen” is a Bali-based Indonesian registered non-profit foundation working alongside accredited agencies and projects to alleviate suffering and support the disadvantaged in Bali. Solemen was formed in October 2010 by founder Robert Epstone, who then vowed to walk barefoot until he raised a million dollars.
