January Opening Planned for Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Indonesia's First Radisson Blu Resort

BALI, ID. November 9, 2017 - Just a 40-minute drive from Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport lies Uluwatu ­– a rural jewel in Bali’s Bukit peninsula’s crown. On this southwestern tip of the Island, Indonesia’s first Radisson Blu resort, Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu reinterprets Balinese style for the modern travelers. Set to welcome guests from January 2018, the brand’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is evident in every dimension of the resort’s unique character.

Bali’s best surfing beach is on the resort’s doorstep, and many more pristine shores and popular oceanside hangouts, such as Bali Collection in Nusa Dua, are within 25 minutes reach. The majestic, 11th-century Luhur Uluwatu Temple lies 6km to the west. A Cultural Park offering myriad Balinese experiences and a state-of-the-art 18-hole golf course designed by Ronald Fream, David Dale & Kevin Ramsey are also nearby, making Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu an ideal base for the surfer, golfer, cultural explorer or serenity seeker.

Guest accommodation comprizes 111 deluxe rooms in three categories, featuring private balconies on upper floors and private sundecks on lower floors, and 14 suites with stunning rooftop terraces giving guests views of the ocean, the pool or both in full panorama.

The all day dining restaurant, Artichoke, provides guests with incredible food bursting with local and global flavors. And Radisson Blu’s signature restaurant concept, Filini makes its Asia Pacific debut at the resort. This authentic Italian eatery offers Meditteranean flavours in an informal setting. Three distinctly different bars complete the F&B offerings with tapas and cocktail pairings at Lookout, poolside quenchers at Choka and cleansing juices at Lucid Liquids ensuring all tastes are catered for.

SpaESC, a generous pool and a world-class fitness center ensure that wellness and fitness go hand-in-hand with relaxation. The Eureka! Kids Club keeps the youngest guests busy. Two high-specs meeting rooms, two event pavilions and outdoor garden venue host weddings, meetings, events and conferences. Everything is made possible by excellent facilities and the attentive, proactive Radisson Blu Yes I Can!℠ service ethos.

General Manager Björn-Henning Buth explains, “The incredible architecture is a true celebration of native craftsmanship. Tenganan Village is the reference for building methods and materials. The layout of guest rooms and social spaces also follows that of traditional Balinese homes, and the interior designers have taken their inspiration from the ornate patterning of Bali’s Lontar manuscripts”.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
