Interview with Dewi Karmawan Director of Marketing Communications Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort

From your personal experience, what do you think it takes to succeed in this industry?
Passion.  Once you love your job and enjoy what you are doing, I believe you will achieve your goal.  And of course, putting effort is a must☺. 

What excites you most about being the DOM of Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort?
Being working in the first lifestyle hotel in Nusa Dua, brings a different experience to my previous journey in luxury hotels.  Fun, vibrant, stylish, fashion-centric, and one-of-a-kind concept that I love from this brand.  Collaborating with 3 well-known local designers; Paul Ropp, Pithecanthropus, and By The Sea, the variety of uniforms represent a fashion show moment as we dress in different style and color outfits from their collections.

With experience working in several luxury resorts in Bali, what do you think is special about Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort?
The concept.  As I mentioned earlier, those unique aspects distinguish us from others.

When you’re at work, what puts a smile on your face?
When the hotel’s performance makes everyone in the hotel smile☺
