ďBaliís tourism industry has proved resilient and continues to show signs of recovery, both from its traditional long-haul markets in Europe and with intra-regional Asian travellers.
ďAccorís Mercure brand is already well respected in Europe and Australia, as its network expands around the region it will become more familiar to our growing Asian clientele. Mercure branding and its expanded facilities will appeal to families, honeymooners and individual travellers who enjoy Sanurís quiet surroundings and leisure appeal,Ē he added.
