In order to keep pace with the increasing sophistication and expectations of travellers staying at The Ayodya Resort Bali, the services and facilities extended to premium travellers staying in the “royal kingdom” enclave of 81-suites within The Ayodya Palace Wing have recently been enhanced.
A special wing at the Resort operated as a “kingdom of hospitality” – The Ayodya Palace Wing – derives its inspiration from ancient Hindu epics in which King Rama and his beautiful wife, Shinta, once reigned over a mythical kingdom. Providing service truly fit for Princes and Princesses, The Ayodya Palace Wing boasts the well-appointed Ayodya Palace Lounge, 24/7 butler service, daily afternoon tea, afternoon cocktail service, evening bed turndown, private lobby and reception area, private Ayodya Palace Wing Swimming Pool, and a dedicated beach area.
Each afternoon of the week, guests staying in the Palace Wing are welcome to partake in an event that is redefining the meaning of “high tea” on the Island of Bali. The Ayodya Palace Lounge brims to overflowing with tempting displays that change each day, but invariably includes: delicious cakes, chocolates, and savories; a veritable cornucopia of imported and local tropical fruits; an array of freshly baked cookies; canapés – both hot and cold; a wide selection of international cheeses; and bunches of succulent grapes, mixed nuts, and dried fruits.
While making repeated trips back and forth to the elaborate food displays, the attentive hosts and hostess on duty in the lounge will keep flowing a stream of freshly brewed premium coffees and teas, fruit juices, mineral water, soft drinks, selected wines, and expertly mixed cocktails.
Guests staying in the Ayodya Palace Wing also enjoy access to the full range of the main hotel’s extensive facilities including the Ayodya spa by Mandara, a well-equipped fitness center, water sport activities supervised by experts, and a professionally-staffed fun-filled Kids’ Club.
Gracing one side of the Ayodya Palace Wing is the Resort’s iconic manmade lagoon populated by stone carvings and flocks of water fowl that are reminiscent of the Water Palaces maintained by Bali’s Rajas in days gone by.
Spread across a very spacious 11.5 hectare site, the luxurious 5-star Ayodya Resort Bali and Ayodya Palace Wing occupies a stunning beachfront stretch of Nusa Dua Bali within the world-renowned Nusa Dua Complex operated by the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC). 25 minutes away from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport via Bali’s scenic elevated toll road, the Resort is within walking distance of South Bali’s largest shopping-entertainment-dining complex at The Bali Collection. A priceless collection of outstanding art fills the nearby Museum Pasifika, while the championship 18-hole Bali National Golf Club beckons just across the road from the Resort.
Commenting on the enhancement of services for guests staying in the Ayodya Palace Wing, Martin Aeschlimann, General Manager of The Ayodya Bali Resort said: “While the Resort remains a prime player among the outstanding hotels found within the Nusa Dua Complex, guests paying the modest additional premium to join the privileged colony of travelers staying in the 81-rooms of the Ayodya Palace Wing have come to expect the highest standard of non-stop unobtrusive service expertly delivered by our well-trained service team. From private breakfast service each morning, to our bountiful and elaborate afternoon tea, to evening cocktails, and ending each day with the evening turn-down service we’ve tried to anticipate every need of today’s premium traveler. Expanded facilities, menus and services have been introduced to raise the bar on serving VIP guests in Bali. And, if, in the event we’ve forgotten something, you only need to tell one of our attentive butlers standing by 24 x 7.”
Only 850 meters from the Resort’s entrance and still within the ITDC Complex are two state-of-the-art international convention centers that regularly host major international summits attended by the world’s leaders.
Dining options range from the select cuts of meat and fresh seafood, Balinese delicacies, Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines – all served in almost limitless array at eight restaurants in the Resort. A highlight of many Balinese holidays in one of the Resort’s cultural dinners showcasing the Island’s traditional dances and musical performances at the picturesque Balinese Theater.
Inspired by an ancient enchanting culture and the beauty of the world’s favorite island destination, The Ayodya Resort Bali has been successfully treating single sojourners, couples, families and business travelers like modern royalty for more than two decades.
