Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali has becomes the first hotel in Kuta to be certified “Tsunami Ready.”

The resort’s tsunami evacuation procedures have been assessed by the ‘Tsunami Ready’ Certification Authorities and found acceptable on March 30, 2012.

According to the review team, the resort has implemented policies and procedures in the following areas: information sources and interpretation, decision-making, evacuation procedures, evacuation routes and shelters, post-tsunami and earthquake preparedness.

‘Tsunami Ready’ defines regional tsunami safety standards and is actively supported by Bali Hotels Association (BHA), Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali has become the first hotel in Kuta recognized as prepared in the event of a tsunami and joins 3 other hotels in Bali with equal certification. The remaining three properties with 'tsunami ready certification' are the InterContinental Bali Resort, Aerowisata Sanur Beach Hotel and AYANA Resort and Spa Bali.

The highlight of the certification session was an evacuation drill involving guests as well as all employees. During the evacuation drill an entire sequence of events kicked into gear, including shutting down gas and power supplies and the protection of vital documents. At the evacuation or muster points, managers performed roll calls to ensure no one was left behind. Each muster point is supplied with sufficient food, water, and essential medical and hygieneequipment in the event of a prolonged period of isolation.

Alexander Kesper, senior advisor at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia said he was impressed with the dedication of staff and the level of organization displayed during the drills.

“We are pleased to have achieved yet another step leading us to excellence in guest and employee safety. Our guests can be assured that their well-being is being looked after and stay with us with confidence” said the resort’s general manager, Stéphane Varoquier.
