Opened its doors to public since 4th October 1993, the resort has retained its place as one of the top five-star resorts in Jimbaran Bay, it proudly continues its tradition of offering the most luxurious experience while highlighting the island’s rich heritage and culture. Throughout the years, the resort has been awarded numerous accolades and recognitions, both international and local.
InterContinental Bali Resort’s restaurants have long been the most favorites in the area, featuring with an exquisite array of local and global cuisines such as Italian cuisine at Bella Cucina, Japanese flavours at KO Restaurant or authentic local Balinese at Jimbaran Gardens.
The anniversary commenced with a traditional Tumpeng Ceremony in Taman Gita restaurant during breakfast. Acone-shaped tower of yellow rice, Nasi Tumpeng symbolizes the mountains and volcanoes as the abode of the gods, with the signature yellow color represents gold, or abundance. The Tumpeng was carried in as part of a ceremonial parade by staff and management who were dressed in traditional attire and accompanied by rousing beleganjur music.
The entire resort took on a festive air with plenty adornments of ceremonial flags and special offerings. The celebration continues into the evening with the management team hosting guests for cocktails in the gardens accompanied by a live Balinese dance performance. The Resort’s General Manager, Michael Koth, thanked business partners and stakeholders for their trust and continual support with the following statement: “We are thrilled to be celebrating our 25th anniversary here on the magical island of Bali.
