Children Feeling Free and Happy in an Independent Nation

The Trans Resort Bali Hosts 20 Children from a Local Orphanage to a Day of Carefree Fun on Indonesia’s 74th Anniversary of Declaring Nationhood

The Trans Resort Bali celebrated Indonesia’s 74th Day of Independence by creating a day filled with joy and a sense of national unity for its staff members, a group of 20 children from the Sakinah Orphanage in Bali, and hotel guests on Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the picturesque Waterfall Deck of the 5 star hotel located in the Seminyak area of Bali.

A morning full of games and refreshments with local orphans forms a part of celebrating every Indonesian Independence Day celebration at The Trans Resort Bali. But this year was the first time the children were transported to the hotel instead of bringing the festivities to the orphanage.

Traditional children’s games and races were conducted for the visiting youngsters, including races in which the participants wore sarongs and contests to quickly devour Indonesian rice crackers (krupuk) suspended on strings.

Commenting on the day, Sisca Oktavia, the Marketing Communication Officer for The Trans Resort said: “As one of our programs of Corporate Social Responsibility, The Trans Resort Bali invited 20 children from the Panti Asuhan Orphanage in Denpasar to share this special day and our nationalistic pride while playing with our staff and children staying in the hotel. This was a positive way in which to enthusiastically celebrate Indonesian Independence Day.”

After the games, the special guests of the Resort adjourned to The Restaurant for lunch accompanied by the Resort’s Manager, Mariusz Mierzejewski. Later, led by the Resort’s General Manager, Alexander Jovanovic, hotel guests and staff members distributed gifts to the children that included picture books, story books, colored pencils, and dolls. The fun continued with the children invited to swim and play in the hotel's White Sandy Beach Pool, located just off the lobby area.

Sisca added: “The flag-raising ceremony for Independence Day was held at 7:00 am followed by the cutting and distributions of a traditional ‘Nasi Tumpang’ in 'The Restaurant' with all the staff celebrating their birthdays in the month of August. Staff members also used the occasion to appear in 'The Restaurant' wearing costumes from their respective regions of Indonesia. This was a unique experience, especially for our international guests staying at The Trans Resort Bali.”
