Five hotels located in The Nusa Dua area have been selected as venue for the Bali Warm-Up Vacation program initiated by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. The five hotels are The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali, Grand Hyatt Bali, Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort, Melia Bali and St. Regis Bali. “The selection of these hotels is based on an assessment carried out by the team of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy,” said Managing Director of The Nusa Dua, I Gusti Ngurah Ardita, not long ago.
The Bali Warm-Up Vacation program is a special program for International Travel for Foreign Nationals (PPLNs) who have just arrived in Bali so that they can undergo self-quarantine at hotels with a bubble system (a system that limits the interaction of PPLNs with people outside the bubble (group) to prevent the spread of Covid-19), while still enjoy and utilize the facilities in the bubble hotel area. “The Bali Warm-Up Vacation program aims to make PPLN not feel like they are undergoing quarantine, but rather feel they are warming up to prepare for their holiday in Bali by prioritizing the precautionary principles to prevent the spread of Covid-19,” he explained.
Ngurah Ardita really appreciated and supported the Bali Warm-Up Vacation program prepared by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. The program will make it easier for PPLNs to carry out quarantine by feeling the warm holiday in Bali. In supporting the program, hotels in our area are ready to offer attractive packages. “In addition, hotels in our area also have experience in running the bubble system and have facilities that really support the implementation of the program properly and meet the requirements set by the government,” he added.
The five hotels offer Bali Warm-Up Vacation program packages to stay at various prices and include a number of benefits that can be enjoyed by PPLN, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, access to facilities within the hotel including the beach, swimming pool, mini gym and dining area, daily fun activities, 2 PCR tests, and one-way airport transfer. “There are several conditions that must be met by the hotels before being selected as one of the hotels that carry out this bubble quarantine, including having a dedicated area for PPLN activities because they will move out of the room,” he said.
Hotels must also have different public facilities between regular guests and warm-up vacation guests, including swimming pool facilities, gym, dining room and other facilities. Another requirement is that hotel employees must stay at the hotel while serving PPLN so as not to meet other people outside the hotel environment.
The Nusa Dua itself has complete accommodation, reaching 5,485 hotel rooms consisting of 14 five-star hotels, 3 four-star hotels, 3 luxury villas and MICE facilities that can accommodate more than 20,000 delegates. Currently, additional accommodation is being prepared in the form of 1 five-star hotel and 1 luxury villa with a total of 424 rooms. The area is also supported by an integrated Information and Communication Technology (ICT) network to improve services for tourism players at The Nusa Dua, including internet, telephone, TV, applications and other services.
