BALI (Paradiso) – The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali pulled out all the stops for its annual Appreciation Gathering on Tuesday, 29th November 2016. Over 300 invited guests, including key business partners and media representatives, filled the Nusantara Room for an uplifting evening of good food and entertainment.
Guests were greeted by the Resort’s senior associates on arrival and then personally escorted to the Nusantara Foyer to enjoy cocktails and light bites. Laid-back DJ music set the mood and everyone was invited to have their photo taken at a dedicated photo booth. The theme for this year’s event was “Celebrate The Best” and it was an opportunity to showcase a number of Westin’s signature initiatives. A “Feel Well” corner by the award-winning Heavenly Spa provided short head and shoulder relaxation massages. There was also a dedicated “Play Well” area highlighting Westin Family activities and a “Move Well” section featuring our Gear Lending program.
The party then moved into the elegant ambience of the Nusantara Room where a live band played a couple of upbeat songs. A short video presentation highlighting the resort’s many attributes was followed by a short speech by Managing Director, Mr. Bipan Kapur. He then proceeded to introduce the Sales and Marketing team and this led to the highlight of the evening as awards were presented to the top ten key business partners.
A delicious dinner featuring a number of healthy dishes and SuperFoodsRX options was served from live cooking stations strategically placed around the room. Chef Manoj Rawat and his culinary team did a fabulous job of creating an artistically displayed buffet that satisfied all taste preferences. The evening continued with more music, lots of lucky draws and prizes for the best dressed guest. Finally, the highly anticipated auction of a Heavenly Bed managed to raise IDR 60 million for the resort’s UNICEF Check Out For Children charity program.
