Nikko Bali News - October 2010

Nikko Bali Resort and Spa went mobile to reach tech users around the world


October 2010 - Nusa Dua, Bali. With everything going mobile now, it's no wonder that companies around the world will do anything to reach their potential clients through social networking programs such as Twitter or Facebook to name a few. Current technologies, especially in communications, have enabled people to stay connected anytime, anywhere. In Asia, you can see most people - in buses, trains or even while they're walking - with their heads down looking at the tiny screen of their latest smart phone, clicking away, 'communicating' with the world or just simply updating their statuses on those social network programs.

Regardless of how the phenomenon is viewed socially, one cannot deny that in the most bizarre way ever known to mankind, these programs help. It updates you on your friends and family, enables you to get information anytime you want and even shop on the go or plan your travel, from booking flights, tour programs to arranging your accommodation.

bridal fair

NUSA DUA, BALI - OCTOBER 2010. "Will you marry me?" this is the ultimate question that defines the next step of a relationship and it's what many people wait for in their lives. But one may realize that the next steps after the question can be full of challenges for both bride and groom to be, from setting the date, finding the venue to creating a theme for their day. This preparation sometimes takes you to so many different places and will take up most of your time, but wouldn’t it be nice if you can go to a place where you can find everything?

With that in mind, Nikko Bali Resort and Spa decided to organize the third Nikko Bali Bridal Fair that started back in 2006 after the resort introduced its cliff-top wedding venue, Wiwaha. On a sunny Saturday, October 30th, Nikko Bali Resort and Spa invited the best vendors representing every essential related to this multi million dollar bridal business - a florist, printing company, wedding organizer, photography and a bridal gown designer - to showcase their services and products in the lush gardens of Wiwaha.

White tents adorned with unique decorations served as the vendor's booths while in the background stood the majestic glass structure of Wiwaha, beckoning visitors to 'create' their dream weddings on the spot. Each vendor offered their special packages, samples of their products and even lucky draws - drawn hourly throughout the day - to the visitors of the one-day event. Two wedding choirs, traditional music players and a DJ were also featured to give options to brides to be, along with a collection of well-tailored bridesmaid dresses, grooms attire, modern kebayas and bridal gowns from the island's well-known designers, Dinda Rella and Monika Weber also two major bridal houses, "I do I do" and "Watabe".

But the main highlight was the first ever bridal make over done with the cooperation between Nikko Bali Resort and Spa and one of the leading bridal magazines in Indonesia, Her World Brides. Prior to the fair, Nikko Bali Resort and Spa announced a challenge to the listeners of a radio station in Bali to send their dream wedding story. Out of 23 participants' 5 winners were announced for having the most unique essays and each was entitled to a make over session and a magazine cover style photo shoot.

Visitors of the fair were also entertained with delectable hors d'oeuvres and light lunch provided by the catering team of Nikko Bali Resort and Spa. Down at Shamita cocktail lounge, located just below Wiwaha, the resort displayed wedding cakes created by the pastry team along with a live cake decorating demonstration.

Concluding the one-day fair, visitors were invited to Wiwaha terrace where refreshing drinks and mouth-watering canapés awaited them along with a beautiful fashion show of cocktail dresses by Dinda Rella.
