Yak Awards 2009

Bali's Leading Style and Life-Style Magazine Holds its Annual Awards Party.


Bali's leading style and life-style magazine "The Yak" held what has become one of the island's leading social events of the year - The Yak Awards - on Saturday, July 18, 2009, at the Sentosa Private Villas and Spa, in the Petitenget area of Seminyak.

After guests passed an extremely thorough security screening at the gateway to the complex and again at the actual entrance to the venue, the evening sparkled with many guests dressed in "psychedelic chic," body painters, Playboy bunnies, and live musical and dance performances. Copious quantities of quality wine and drinks, delicious canapés and a fresh oyster bar - all flowed in defiant rebuttal to any suggestion that Bali may be running short of imported food and drink.

Punctuated by a live dance performance by Bali's premier contemporary dancer, Nyoman Sura, the main business of the night was the presentation of the 2009 Yak Awards.

And the Winners are . . .

The Winners of this years Yak Awards were:

• Best Newcomer: St Regis Bali
