WakaGangga Resort Makes Two Key Management Appointments


(4/6/2014)

Waka Hotel and Resorts have announced two key management appointments at their WakaGannga Resort at Gangga Beach, Tabanan, West Bali.

Juliana Rosenboom – Resort Manager


Juliana Rosenboom has been appointed resort manager. A long-time resident of Indonesia, Juliana grew up in Indonesia the daughter of German expatriates and, as a result, speaks Indonesian fluently.

On hand to supervise the WakaGangga’s development and building program, Juliana reflects on the job ahead: “I like to think I combine the heart of Bali with a German approach to efficiency, service and hygiene. I have worked hard with the staff to ensure that everything runs smoothly, There still the warm and generous hosts that Bali is famous for and they have responded well to the training and the systems we have put in place, they soak it up and we all work together as a team.”

Juliana graduated from the École hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland before coming back “home” to Indonesia to work with leading hotels including the Kempinski in Jakarta and Hotel Tugu in Lombok.

Juliana added: “My hope is that our guests will treasure the time they spend with us at WakaGangga. There are so many unique aspects to this property, from the architectures to the food and location. With a sensible pricing policy, we are aiming to deliver great value to our guests for accommodation, restaurant, bar and spa to encourage them to enjoy our wonderful facilities and the unhurried pace at the resort.”

Putu Yudana – Executive Chef

Following assignments in some of Bali’s best kitchens, Putu Yudana has moved to WakaGangga to assume the role of executive chef.

Determined to share the unique culinary traditions of Bali with the resort’s guests, Putu described the professional journey that has brought him to WakaGangga: “My background covers it all. I first worked at Warisan before going to Oberoi Hotels. Working under European executive chefs has helped me tremendously to learn and put into practice the fine art of continental cuisine. I now have the chance to also share more of my own Indonesian dishes with my guests.”

Putu has brought his wide experience from working in outstanding kitchens to bear at WakaGangga. The resorts menus offer a tempting selection of both continental and Asian dishes, together with home-styled Balinese cooking with ingredients provided by local farmers.

“The guests at WakaGangga can learn more about the locally grown vegetables and herbs used in our food and, if they are interested, from our local gardens. I look forward to discussing the ingredients, taking guests to cooking classes and introducing authentic cuisine,” Putu explained.

Putu also takes charge of the Waka Bar and Restaurant, perched above the Indian Ocean and encased in rustic woods and glass. Designed by Ketut Siandana and Japanese designer Nobuyuki Narabayashi, the venue is filled with natural light and open space offering unequalled views of the coastline and sweeping surf of Bali’s west coast.

“If I am making continental dishes, I want them to be authentic. The same with Indonesian and Balinese food. I don’t believe in fusion, I want it to taste true to its roots. At WakaGangga, the only thing changed is the way we try to make the dishes a little lighter, We also offer half portions and shared plates for guest to enjoy by sharing food with family and friends, as in most Balinese homes, known as “megibung eating style” on the Island. I want my guests to enjoy the food, the service and, of course, the beautiful views,” Putu added.

WakaGangga Resort


The Resort is located a 45-minutes drive from Bali’s busy Seminyak area and 20-minutes from the world class Nirwana Bali Golf and Country Club.
Situated a short distance from Bali’s iconic Tanah Lot Temple, WakaGangga Resort is also within easy striking distance of Bali's World Heritage Rice Terraces at Jatiluwih.
