On March 7, 2009, a friendly gathering of 100 hoteliers and travel business partners gathered at the Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort to raise their glasses in salute to Annelies de Moil's 29 years of dedicated service selling Bali holidays to the people of Australia.
The former Managing Director of Bali Tours in Melbourne chose a "black and white" theme for a beachside soiree of cocktails, wines and canapés accompanied by music provided by the Tropical Transit Band.
Gordon Tanner, Sales & Marketing Manager of Bali Tours in Melbourne welcomed guests and introduced co-workers who flew in specially for Annelies retirement party.
In her farewell speech, Annelies said: "After 29 years with Bali Tours I decide to ease into a more relaxed pace of semi-retirement. Bali is always in my heart and passion, I love the people, the culture and the way of life of the Balinese. There is no other place in the world that can beat Bali. Because of this love and passion Bali Tours can stay as it is now and continue selling Bali despite of all the challenges. This is possible because the commitment from Bali Tours staff and the support from all business partners."
