Lying on the southeast part of Bali, across the Badung straits is one of Bali’s small satellite islands that recently stepped into the tourism limelight. Nusa Lembongan is an exotic sister island of Bali where Waka Hotels & Resorts launched their newest pride and joy: WakaBeachClub.
On November 2nd after 30 minutes crossing on the fast boat and 1,5 hours sailing by WakaSailing Catamaran, finally, 150 dignitaries & invitees, which consisted of agents, partners and media, arrived safely at the pristine coastline of Jungut Batu on the famous Nusa Lembongan Island. Powdery white sand beach with gin clear water, floral welcome gate and a refreshing tropical cocktail greeted the guests draped in floral shirts. The 1.800m2 of land dotted with well-manicured shacks with an alang-alang roof, swimming pool, a heart-winning treetop observation deck and a large Joglo house with its rustic teak wood pillars standing proud, as the centre of shade where all the VIP’s and guests were mingling and sharing some laughter with cold beverages in hand. With no walls, the cooling sea breeze could reach every single one sitting even in the deepest end of the Joglo pavilion.
The day’s itinerary was prepared neatly by the Waka team; ribbon cutting ceremony was done by Mr Putu Sumaniaka and Doctor Rina as shareholders, which symbolized that this chic beach club that only took 18 months to build from the ground up, is set to operate and deliver its impeccable service. After a brief introduction of the Waka family team members to the guests, then the superb lunch was served. Nothing beats the freshness of catch of the day fishes, kinds of pasta, sate and traditional cakes prepared by the skilful hands of kitchen team under the watchful eye of Mr Putu Yudana the Corporate Executive Chef of Waka Hotels & Resorts.
