Mr. Goya A. Mahmud, ARTOTEL Group Regional General Manager Bali further explains the reasons behind the relaunching strategy; “We feel we have a superb product here at ROCA with exceptional design, fantastic staff and a varied menu. We are delighted in the current climate, to be in a position to upgrade the restaurant and our brand to compound our commitment to the lifestyle and current trend and to Sanur as a tourist destination. We also have firm plans to launch our own signature events to add to the already existing ones such as; Lidah Lokal Indonesian Buffet, Salsa Night, Grilled & Stoked BBQ Night and the ever popular Cocktail Carnival.”
