(7/31/2006)

On Friday, July 28, 2006, Balinese culinary legend Lother Arsana ended more than 3 decades in the kitchens of the Hyatt Corporation at a gala cocktail reception attended by colleagues and admirers from across the Island.

Fresh from his graduation from the Hotel and Tourism Academy in Bali, Lother began his remarkable and meteoric career in 1974 at the Bali Hyatt. In possession of a natural passion for cooking, Lother was appointed Commis Chef in 1975, having progressed to Sous Chef 15 years laters in 1990 when he left the Sanur property to join the pre-opening culinary team at the new Grand Hyatt Bali in Nusa Dua.

While at the Bali Hyatt, Lother wrote his first cookery book "Paon Bali" - one of the first published compendiums of Balinese recipes.

During his career with Hyatt, Lother proudly presented Balinese and Indonesian cuisine around the world in numerous food promotions in cities that included Johannesburg, Moscow, Sydney, Melbourne, Taipei, and Hong Kong. In 1994, Lother wrote his second cook book - "Food of Bali," co-authored with jis mentor and then Executive Chef of the Grand Hyatt, Heinz Von Holzen.

A Chef with an international reputation for professionalism in the kitchen, Lother was often called away from Bali to join the pre-opening support teams for Hyatt Regency Surabaya, Grand Hyatt Seoul and Grand Hyatt Shanghai. "Balinese food has allowed me to visit and experience other countries around the world," admitted Lother.

A defining moment in an illustrious career was Lother's promotion to Executive Chef for Grand Hyatt Bali in 1998, capping a career he began in 1974 as a humble daily worker in the Sanur Hyatt's kitchen.

A Most Fond Farewell

Universally loved and respected by all his Hyatt colleagues, the evening was a sometimes tearful farewell marking 32 years with Hyatt Resorts Bali which included speeches from the Regional General Manager of Hyatt International, Peter Stettler, and the General Manager of the Grand Hyatt Bali, Detlev Truernit, who presented a kitchen knife to Lother that was given to him by his own father.

After a distinguished career in the kitchen, Lother says he will now focus on community and village responsibilities, bringing with him the honour of being the first Balinese Executive Chef in Bali to assume that role in a major 5 star hotel.
