UK Celebrities Explore the Exoticism of Bali

Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort & Spa was recently proud to host two UK celebrities; England national rugby star Chris Robshaw and English classical crossover singer Camila Kerslake, who chose to stay at the luxury beachfront resort from 3rd to 6th July 2014.

Rugby player Chris Robshaw is captain of both the Harlequins and England’s national rugby union team, while singer Camilla Kerslake has toured with the likes of English tenor Russell Watson, Irish Catholic classical group The Priests, the classical crossover girl band All Angels and vocal trio Blakes, as well as starring in Christmas performances with Simon Cowell’s crossover super group Il Divo and in arena shows with Andrea Bocelli.

For their holiday at Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort & Spa, the celebrity couple stayed in a spacious Ocean View Suite, which features a contemporary Balinese interior with luxurious comforts and a terrazzo hydro tub on the balcony.  During their stay the couple were immersed in Bali’s exotic culture with a Spice Spoons Balinese cooking class and an indigenous Indonesian dinner.  Making the most of the resort’s spectacular setting along Seminyak Beach, they enjoyed a yoga class and surf lesson, as well as admiring the rolling Indian Ocean waves from the resort’s rooftop restaurant SOS Supper Club.

Together with General Manager Clinton Lovell and key management of Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort & Spa, Chris and Camilla participated in the charity programme Yayasan Solemen Indonesia, a Bali based non-profit foundation whose projects support the disadvantaged in Bali, with more than 200 children in Bali’s Denpasar area delighted to meet the celebrities.

Clinton Lovell, Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort & Spa’s General Manager comments, ”We were thrilled to host Chris and Camilla in Bali and to introduce the UK celebrities to the unique culture and beauty of the Island of the Gods, a charitable project that our resort is passionate about, and also some of our resort’s unique signature experiences, culminating in a journey of diverse and rich discovery.”

For hundreds of years throughout Thailand, people would leave a jar of water outside their house to provide refreshment and extend a welcome to the passing traveller.  Anantara is taken from an ancient Sanskrit word that means ‘without end’, symbolising this sharing of water and the heartfelt hospitality that lies at the core of every Anantara experience.

From lush jungles to pristine beaches and legendary deserts to cosmopolitan cities, Anantara currently boasts 30 stunning properties located in Thailand, the Maldives, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Cambodia, Mozambique and the United Arab Emirates, with future properties to open in Mozambique, China, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Laos, Qatar and Oman.
