Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali Reflects on Highly Successful Award-Winning Year
Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali, the five-star family lifestyle resort, is reflecting on a highly successful year during which it won a collection of prestigious awards and honours.
Over the course of 2018, the resort was recognised for providing outstanding experiences in a wide range of areas, including its fantastic family facilities, first-class food & beverage, and the high quality of its management.
At the 2018 World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali was named as “Bali’s Leading Family Resort”. These awards, which concluded with a gala ceremony in Hong Kong, are considered to be a hallmark of excellence in the travel industry. Our resort was selected ahead of 11 other leading Balinese properties, including many top global brands.
Holidays with Kids, the popular Australian family travel website, selected Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali in two award categories this year. The resort was named in the “Top 10 Family Resorts in Indonesia”, ranking sixth nationwide, and as a “Top Recommended Resort for Travellers with Infants”, polling fifth globally and first in Indonesia!
Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali was also celebrated as the “Best Newcomer – Asia” in the 2019 Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence. Collated by the publishers of Condé Nast Traveller, the leading leisure travel magazine, these are among the most illustrious awards in the global hospitality industry, celebrating the world’s finest hotels and resorts. With so many eye-catching new properties currently opening across Asia, this is a hugely impressive achievement.
Switzerland-based Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has a rich food and beverage heritage, and this culinary expertise is showcased at a selection of world-class restaurants at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali. The resort’s food outlets picked up a trio of titles at the Best Restaurant Bar & Café Awards (BRBCA 2018), which are run by NOW! Bali, including “Best Café” for the Mövenpick Café, “Best International Restaurant” for Anarasa, the lively urban marketplace, and “Best Mexican and South American Restaurant” for Above Eleven, the stylish rooftop destination and sky bar.
The goal of BRBCA 2018 is to find the Bali’s best restaurants, so with three awards coming from just 18 categories, this was a spectacularly successful occasion for Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali.
Finally, Horst Walther-Jones, General Manager of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali, was honoured with the title of “Indonesia’s Best General Manager – Hospitality” in the CMO Asia Awards 2018. These awards are designed to celebrate professionals who have excelled in their fields and made a real difference to their organisations. Mr. Walther-Jones received this accolade in person at a gala ceremony in Jakarta on 24 October 2018. He was one of just 25 executives recognised as Best General Manager in Indonesia.
“2018 was a wonderfully successful year for Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali. These awards are hugely important; they show that we are making a real impact in the market, creating experiences that resonate with our guests and the broader travel industry. To receive so many awards in such a diverse collection of categories is a wonderful reflection on our entire team. We look forward to introducing even more guests to our award-winning resort and experiences in 2019 and beyond,” commented Mr. Walther-Jones.
