With 278 rooms including luxury suites and villas, the resort offers recreational and banquet facilities including indoor and outdoor meeting spaces for up to 300 guests.
Its lush 18-hole world class Greg Norman golf course has also won acclaimed honours including "Best Course in Asia" and "Best Course in Indonesia" and the resort has been named by World Travel Awards as ‘Asia's Leading Golf Resort'.

An evening cocktail was also held on the resort's picturesque lawn with business partners, guest, hotel associates, local community representatives and government officials in attendance.
