I've been to a Marvelous Party

International hotelier and hospitality legend Erhard Hotter celebrated his birthday with a small group of colleagues and friends on August 7, 2008 at the soon-to-be-opened St. Regis Bali Resort in Nusa Dua.

A hotelier known for his immense charm and impeccable taste, Hotter’s birthday party presented a memorable evening of outstanding food, fine wines, live music, and artistic performance against the backdrop of Bali's newest and arguably most luxurious resorts, pitched by its creators to assume instant hierarchical supremacy on an island already home to the world's finest resorts.

Opening on September 15, 2008, and managed by hotel veteran Frank Beck, the 121 suite and villa property is spread lightly over an 8.8 hectare seaside site at Nusa Dua and seems certain to woo those seeking the latest take on understated elegance, luxurious accommodation and a pampered lifestyle.

Erhard Hotter, who now serves as CEO of the PT Rajawali, the Resort's Owners, has been on hand over the past month to lend his valuable expertise and meticulous attention to every detail of the Resort's finishing touches and staff training.

A Religious Experience

Based on the preview provided to those on the birthday list, guests at the St. Regis should be forgiven for thinking they have arrived at a religious shrine instead of a six-star resort; such was the frequency we heard audible gasps "Oh my god" from guests as they encountered yet another aspect of the Resort's elegant demeanor. Vehicles approaching the hotel pass over a massive bridge before disembarking and passing into the spacious reception area. Boneka, inspired by Indonesian puppetry and presenting a carnival ambience - will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner just off the main lobby. On the opposite side of the welcoming esplanade, the Resort's King Cole Bar features fine wines and expertly prepared cocktails in a sophisticated piano bar setting. A short electric cart ride away from the lobby brings you to the Kayu Putih beachside restaurant, dramatically cast and destined to become Bali's chic new place to "do" lunches and dinners.

Happy Birthday Erhard

Hotter's birthday dinner was held inside the Resort's Cloud Nine wedding chapel – a glass-walled and chandeliered-ceiling structure set on a podium of cascading fire and water.

For That Which We are About to Receive . . .

Occupying the evening hours until midnight when Hotter officially turned a year older was an eleven-course menu, which – like the hotel itself – evoked mumbled oaths, akin to saying grace, timed with the appearance of each new amazing course of food. And, as God is my witness, the delicacies prepared by the St. Regis culinary team represent the very epitome of sinful temptation. This remarkable repast was accompanied by fine wines carefully matched by the St. Regis' sommelier.

At midnight, over-satiated guests waddled their way slowly to the chapel's seaside veranda where live piano music, Moet and Chandon and a flaming Baked Alaska were on offer while guests witnessed an original dance performance by Bali's world-renowned contemporary dance genius – Nyoman Sura.
