As another addition to the Brilliant Hotelier series, our ambitious and self-driven Account Manager, Mr. Ankur Yadav recently had a word with Mr. I Nyoman Astama, the esteemed General Manager of the Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort. During the interaction, Astama candidly spoke about the hotel’s amenities and how the resort embraced technology-driven practices to craft a leading yet exemplary Indonesian retreat.
Ankur: Thanks for joining us Mr. Nyoman. Congratulations on winning the Indonesia Leading Boutique Hotel 2015/2016 by ITTA and for also making it into the TripAdvisor “HALL OF FAME 2015”. What do you think are the unique and special features of Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort?
Astama: My pleasure Ankur and thanks for your kind words! The accolades were not a surprise I must admit (laughs). Honestly, we try to maintain a consistent service quality with a steady conformance to guest expectations.
At Bali Niksoma, we have 5 types of rooms namely the Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suite, Suite and Presidential Villa. These 58 rooms are designed and built indigenously, retaining the true essence of Bali’s soul. Guests spending their time in these rooms can actually enjoy a tranquil ambience in the midst of plush interiors and spacious living areas. Other special features for the guests include Hatha Yoga sessions, afternoon tea arrangements, sensational seafood BBQ dinners and Balinese cultural dance performances, to name a few.
Ankur: You are ranked as one of the Top Boutique hotels in the Legian region on TripAdvisor. The Acoustic Dinner feature for instance, is remarkable and actually make you stand out. How did you come up with this innovative idea?
Astama: We want every leisurely evening spent at the resort to be special for our guests, and we leave no stone unturned to ensure the same. By the same token, our guests can now enjoy soft and smoky undertones of acoustic music. Lingering notes of rich and earthy tunes make them happily indulge into the sumptuous a la carte cuisine from our Chef’s kitchen. This dinner is arranged on every Wednesday evening and we are happy that our guests enjoy the ambience in this setup. Due to popular demand, we are planning to make the relaxed Acoustic Dinner a regular practice in the near future.
Ankur: That’s remarkable! Your resort amalgamates natural setups with the latest technology. For instance, your website displays local temperature and time. This is an interesting feature for a website visitor. Tell us how you plan to balance the usage of technology with your day-to-day business?
Astama: The hospitality industry in Bali incorporates eco-friendly practices to stay as close to the nature as possible. However, the complicated business also needs technology adaptation for greater efficiency, such as automation of systems, water recycling, solar energy, free Wi-Fi etc.
Ankur: Since connectivity is quintessential today, what’s your take on RateGain? Have we helped you in your journey?
Astama: RateGain has been a true partner and the team aligned to our property has paved the way for a plethora of new distribution avenues. Channel Manger tool – RezGain helps us to seamlessly distribute rates, restrictions, and inventory online. There is no manual day-to-day management as a result of which, we can now focus better on building a richer guest experience.
I would also like to mention Optima – the smart hotel rate shopper from RateGain. With the help of powerful dashboard analytics in the tool, we are now able to analyze our comp-set better as well as leverage the power of price intelligence. Hence, we are now able to identify source markets better which has resulted in a stark improvement in our RevPAR and ADR numbers over the past few months.
Ankur: A big “Thank You” to you and your team at the Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort. We once again congratulate you on your commitment to eco-friendliness and guest centricity.
Astama: Thank you Ankur. It was great talking to you.
