AirAsia marks the spot for Melbournites to Bali

Indonesia AirAsia X has finally been given the green light to fly direct between Melbourne and Bali (Denpasar) by Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).

The carrier commenced services from 18 March 2015 with two flights per week between Melbourne and the popular holiday destination, increasing services to five flights per week (only excluding Monday’s) from 1 May.

“We adhere to standard aviation practice in selling the flights but unfortunately we were caught up by bad timing during Christmas, in which we were not able to rectify the matter in time,” AirAsia Group ceo Tony Fernandes said.

According to Fernandes, once proceedings are finalised, the airline will launch a sale for fares on the new service.

The flights will be operated on an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 365 economy seats and 12 business class flat bed seats.

“AirAsia plans to grow the existing hub network from Bali to 16 direct onward destinations in Asia and this will be further developed over time,” AirAsia X group ceo, Datuk Kamarudin Meranun said.

Since 2007, AirAsia has carried over 7.5 million guests between Asia and Australia..

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2015 marks the Silver Jubilee (25th Year of operation) for the Bali Dynasty Resort and there will be a lot of celebrations and activties to commemorate this important milestone in the history of the Bali Dynasty Resort!

First and foremost, celebrations commenced on the 3rd of March with a party for all our staff to show appreciation for their contributions and hard work, there was food, entertainment and lucky draw prizes including a motorbike donated by the management. 

On the 9th of March a special appreciation dinner was held for the Management Team where the owner recognised and thanked the team for their support and contribuiton over the years with a commemorative Silver Parker pen engraved with the Bali Dynasty Resort.  

This event was followed by an event to recognise those staff that have achieved 25 years service, 20 years and 15 years service at the Bali Dynasty Resort. 100 employees were recognised for 25 years of service which represents nearly 27% of the total full time workforce!

The Bali Dynasty Resort recognises the importance of upkeeping the hardware of the building to ensure that it is well maintained and refurbished but more importantly recognising that the staff are the biggest asset who ensure each guest is treated as an individual and recieve an efficient and personalised service which has lead to many repeat guests returning year after year to visit the staff and the hotel. Over 60% of the Bali Dynasty Resort's staff have been at the resort now more than 20 years and and 72% have been at the Resort longer than 15 years meaning just 28% of the employees have been at the resort less than 15 years which is a great achievement and reflects a happy team which translates into happy guests!

Bali Events

Denpasar Festival

Denpasar Festival focuses on happiness and sustainability. It realises Bali’s full potential and the important existence of its creative industry. Held annually, the Denpasar Festival commemorates the end of the year with a silver lining. Each year there is a different theme along with colourful exhibitions and ethnic musical performances by Balinese artists. The close of the festival is celebrated with a dance parade and Dadong Rerod opera.

This year’s Denpasar Festival will be held on the 28th – 30th December 2019. The main venue for this three-day event will be spread across “KM 0 Denpasar” or “Kilometre Zero Point Denpasar”, located at Dauh Puri Kangin, West Denpasar, Denpasar City, Bali. (Source: www.balidestination.com)

Cultural Calendar

Saraswati Day

Saraswati Day is held every 210 days in honour of Saraswati who is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. It is believed that this beautiful deity also helped the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate the universe. So, thanks are given to her on this holy day.

The name Saraswatiderives from two local Balinese words: sara and swaandthi. When combined, these words translateas ‘the one who has all knowledge’. The symbol for Saraswati is a pretty four-armed goddess depicted as playing the zither and holding up scriptures. This portrayalis demonstrative of the thirst of knowledge and higher learning.

The hallmark of the celebration is the provision of offerings by locals regardless of their location: whether at school, at home, at the office, in the farm or in the temples. These offerings are varied, but the one similarity between them is the fact that they are often placed on top of books andholy scripture. This is done in light of the celebration of knowledge, which one can attain from these books.

It is also typical to see Balinese refraining from reading or writing on this day as all the books are offered up to Saraswati. As evening falls, religious books are read in temples or at home to honour the goddess. This year, Saraswati Day will be celebrated on the 7th of December 2019. (Source: www.balitravelhub.com).

Charity Updates

With the support from our loyal guests and their generous donations, Bali Dynasty Resort has been able to establish and sponsor the Bali Dynasty Resort Care & Recovery Centre. This care facility replicates a nurturing home environment that provides the necessary assistance and resources required to keep families together before, during, and after medical treatment. With the centre now open and being operated by Solemen Indonesia, a non-profit charity foundation, Bali Dynasty Resort is focusing its efforts to cover expenses for a number of Sole Buddies who are currently in residence. 

Komang

Komang is a 13-year-old boy from Bangli. He has the rare genetic skin condition known as Harlequins Ichthyosis, which has caused him to become immobile due to limb contractures. Despite his issues, he attends school and loves to sing. After being assessed and monitored by dermatologists, his bathroom was renovated to include a bathtub as soaking is a vital part of his skincare regime. Komang requires two tins of Ensure milk formula, QV Wash and cream, Bicarbonate of soda and two water truck deliveries for bathing totalling approximately IDR 1,200,000-each month.

Wisma

Wisma is an 11-year-old boy living in Singaraja. He suffers from Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. When we first met him, he was having a daily seizure and was a very unsettled young boy. After being assessed and monitored by a Specialist Pediatric Neurologist and supporting therapists, his condition has significantly improved. Wisma requires two tins of Ensure formula, plus monthly consultations and medication totalling over IDR 1,000,000-. Unfortunately, his condition is not covered by the local government insurance system (BPJS)

Guest Feedback

Gardens are looking super, great to see the ducks and squirrel roaming around the garden freely. The new expanded Gracie Kelly’s is great, although it has increased significantly in size it has maintained the atmosphere of the older, more intimate Gracie’s. Christopher AUSTRALIA

The hotel was fantastic, we were treated like kings and queens and really felt at home. The wellness center and massage by the pool were top level and very professional. Ziga SI

The hotel was fantastic, we were treated like kings and queens and we really felt at home. The wellness center and massages by the pool were top level and very professional (especially Lina was amazing). They have a big area for everybody that wants activities and fun by the pool, but also provide a adults only area if you need a quiet place to chill. Recommend to both families and couples. BenetkeCom Slovenia

The New Gracie Kelly’s is fantastic, staff and food are excellent, the sunset bar was very good as well with polite staff and very cold refreshment. Sthepen AUSTRALIA
