After almost 2 years of hiatus, the time has come for Bali to extend a welcome back greeting to international tourists to the island of the Gods including tourists from Australia. This joyful moment was marked with the resumption of Jetstar’s flight to the island last Monday, 14 March when the first Jetstar Australia Boeing 787-8 departed from Melbourne after two years and landed safely at Bali’s international airport Ngurah Rai. The aircraft flew the very first group of media fam trip to experience a renewing stay at The Westin Bali Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
During the stay, the media group had the chance to explore some of Bali’s most sought after destinations such as Uluwatu temple, Seminyak, Ubud, Nusa Penida and a few other hidden gems of Bali. Those who preferred to relax and enjoy the resort had the option of relaxing by the pool and on the beach or enjoying the resort’s wellness programing such as yoga, runWestin as well as bike rides around the area. There was an appreciation dinner held by the beachfront with traditional Balinese set up showcasing local culinary offerings and a vibrant and cultural Balinese performance including the renowned fire dance.
“On behalf of all associates at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali and Marriott Bonvoy portfolio of resorts in Bali, we are excited on the re-opening of our borders and to have had the opportunity to be part of this Jetstar famil trip. For almost 2 years, Bali has been anxiously awaiting the return of International travelers to this much loved island, and we are thrilled that the day finally came. Our sincere appreciation to Jetstar, who has now returned to Bali, and we look forward to welcoming more guests from Australia. Also our deepest thank you to The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of Indonesia for the ongoing support towards the revitalization of Bali and last but not least, thank you to all the media and influencers, who helped to convey the message that Bali is waiting to welcome everyone to the island of the Gods.” says Oriol Montal, General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali and Bali International Convention Centre who is also the Multi-Property Vice President, Bali Properties of Marriott International.
