After nearly 8 years in Bali, Gareth Warne, the Australian manager of Sail Sensation and Nusa Lembongan Resort has elected to bid farewell to the Bali and Nusa Lembongan cruise and resort operation.
Warne, whose wife works in Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific, made the reluctant decision to leave his adopted island home and his much-loved co-workers in order to locate his wife, son and self in a single location.
Joining the Bali cruise and resort operation in 2005, he was initially based at the Nusa Lembongan Island resort before taking on a sales and marketing role at the company’s Bali office.
In 2007, he was elevated once again to the job of General Manager overseeing both the floating and land-based assets of the company.
Intent on giving back to the community, Warne has won awards from the Klungkung regency for exemplary payment of tax obligations and served as the Director of Environment for the Bali Hotels Association. He has also been an active member of SKAL Bali and the Rotary Club Bali Seminyak.
Under Warne’s stewardship the Bali company has won multiple Tri Hita Karana awards given to company’s exemplifying best cultural and environmental practice.
Until a replacement is named, Gareth Warne offered assurances that the company’s daily cruise program and private island getaway accommodation services at Nusa Lembongan will continue to operate normally with Agus Mansur and Gede Adhnyana available to handle any operational or booking concerns.

Reflecting on his Bali interregnum, Warne professes he has no regrets and only found memories of his time spent with Sails Sensation and Nusa Lembongan Resorts and the “wonderful staff members” who made his Bali assignment resemble a “working holiday.” Adding, ”I have enjoyed every moment with the staff and the very supportive management team in Bali and Australia.”
During his tenure with the Bali company Warne was instrumental in creating products and services that attracted a significant incentive and group market to the company. “I am sincerely thankful for the friendships I have made through local agents and overseas and the many colleagues that have supported me over the years to help SailSensations be the success it is today," he said.
