The resurgence of travel to Bali sees ALiLA Hotels and Resorts expanding their Australian sales and marketing team, represented in Australia & New Zealand by The Wren Partnership. Joining the team from 1st June 2004 are Erin Hayley and Virginia Haddon.
ALiLA Ubud and ALiLA Manggis are boutique resorts located in Bali – a harmonious collection of life’s simple elements blending perfectly with their natural environments, offering guests a unique experience and the opportunity to learn about the Balinese culture. Also part of the group is central business hotel, ALiLA Jakarta, conceived as a haven of relaxation and contemporary style. The newest edition, ALiLA Phuket Villas, opening in March 2005, is an exclusive villa residence and resort facility located on Kamala Beach, Phuket, Thailand.
“We are thrilled with the increase in tourism to Bali, which saw a major turnaround in visitor arrivals since the beginning of this year” says Carolyn Gray, ALiLA Hotels and Resorts account director for Australia and New Zealand. “This increase is reflected in significant increases in room nights at both our Bali properties not seen since pre-October 2002 times. ALiLA will gain exposure in the growing Melbourne and Sydney markets through the appointment of Erin and Virginia, and their working more closely with retail travel agents concentrating on sales training and product updates” continues Gray.
Erin Hayley has spent six months with The Wren Partnership as Account Executive demonstrating skills in customer service, project management and business development. Erin will be responsible for the promotion of ALiLA Hotels and Resorts to the Melbourne travel industry.
