On Friday, November 1, 2013, RIMBA Jimbaran Bali Resort formally opened its doors with grand celebratory party without match in recent Island memory
With a guest list of “who’s who”
in Bali and international travel, the unique and highly captivating Sister-Hotel to the AYANA Resort and Spa
, the new RIMBA Jimbaran Bali
occupies its own spacious 8-hectare corner within the larger 88-hectare resort complex.
Shrinking the wide expanse, guests attending the Grand Opening were ferried in buggies and trolley cars from a satellite parking area, down roads through wooded parkways before arriving at the magnificent resort-within-a-resort. As guests paused to register and enjoy a welcoming drink and Middle Kingdom canapés
at the Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant,
a helicopter zoomed overhead with film teams catching the crowds exploring the new facility and the adjoining world renowned Rock Bar
at the AYANA Resort.
Designed to be strikingly different, the 282-room RIMBA Jimbaran Resort
takes full advantage of the property's position on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean. Emphasizing nature and understated elegance, the public areas, venues and guest access areas use natural stone materials and recycled wood salvaged from old ships - all uderlining the close connection to nature of the RIMBA Jimbaran
In an act of simple surrender to the beauty of the natural surroundings, the hotel remains luxuriantly simple without futilely trying to compete with Nature’s handiwork visible at evry turn.
The cleverly designed grand opening was a progressive affair, exposing guests to public areas, pools, fitness center, rooms and dining and restaurant venues before finally adjourning to the poolside gardens where food and drink were enjoyed. The Owner of the Resort, Rudy Suliawan, officiated at the inauguration with members of his team. Later, percussion groups, dancers, male and female models in body paint, music from Bali’s internationally acclaimed Balawan
and a pyrotechnic display added to the merriment.
