The 2021 IBF comprised of three tournaments: the Indonesia Masters, the Indonesia Open, and the BWF World Tour Finals, which took place from 16th November to 5th December 2021. More than 500 world athletes, officials, referees, and committee members from 24 countries participated in this prestigious event. The exceptional BICC Mangupura Hall was converted into three world-class badminton courts for the players to compete. At the same time, the BICC parking lot was utilized as a warming-up hall, and the resort’s tennis court was transformed into a practice hall.
Known for its warm Balinese hospitality, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali was also selected as the accommodation for the IBF participants, VIPs, and committee members during their stay in Nusa Dua. Guests were able to enjoy direct white sand beach access, swimming pools, and other in-house facilities. This also includes fun and healthy activities such as meditation, yoga, and movie night scheduled every day to ease the athletes’ minds off. It is always an appetizing experience at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
