Carrying the brand’s global reputation as a luxurious and laid-back hotel chain, Radisson Blu Uluwatu Bali successfully turned Bali blue.
This new upscale resort in Uluwatu, Bali is the first in the country to operate under Radisson Blu name. Although the Grand Opening cocktail party was held in early July, the hotel already accepted guests since March 2018, and has achieved an outstanding traffic rate ever since.
In the evening where the Grand Opening took place, the whole resort’s outdoor area was tinted in blue shades. Special guests enjoyed dinner and cocktail by the resort’s gigantic pool. In one corner, there was a stage where par excellence stars like Andien, Balawan, and Sophie Navita performed.

The hotel was officially launched as the five of them poured champagne into a bowl, symbolizing the merriment of new beginning.
A series of fireworks improved the finesse of the ceremonial process. After the ceremony took place, guests stayed at the venue for after party drinks and live music.
