Ayana Resort celebrated its first full year of operations under its new brand on April 1, 2010, by welcoming back its first guests who were back in Bali for a return visit.
Australians Andrew McKinnon and Jessica Grant were on hand to join the anniversary celebrations at the Resort's fabled Rock Bar.
Andrew and Jess joined a select group of media, travel agents and community members gathered at this open-air bar, perched on natural rock 14 meters above the ocean. They celebrated with the cool sounds of DJ Martin East from LA, an indigenous drumming band, Japanese saxophonist Chika Asamoto, fireworks over the ocean, and a magician who produced door prizes virtually from thin air.
General Manager Charles de Foucault expressed his delight that Ayana's
first official guests had returned to Bali a year later, unaware that the resort was planning a special event to mark the anniversary. In appreciation of their continued support, the couple were presented with an ‘Eternal Love Couple's Treatment
at the spa, recently acknowledged by Conde Nast Traveler
as one of the world's best spas."
In the year since the re-branding, the owners and managers of Ayana Resort
have invested heavily in ensuring guest satisfaction at the cliff-side resort.The Rock Bar was opened shortly after the re-branding, quickly becoming one of Bali's iconic "must do" stops on an island holiday. Other improvements are the renovation of Padi restaurant, Damar Terrace Restaurant
and the ballroom. Villa butlers have recently graduated from a certification programs from the UK Guild of Professional Butlers,
purveyors of professional training for butlers to worldwide royalty and celebrities.
