Access Bali Online was launched in 1997 by I Gede Sanat Kumara in order
to focus developing interest in Internet business in Bali. With twenty
years experience in hotel management and tourism in Bali, a prime Indonesia
destination, I Gede Sanat Kumara gained the experience and foresight to
establish Access Bali Online.
Under the name of CV. Media Komunikasi Perkasa, Access Bali
Online established a corporate presence in web design, web consulting,
web advertising and hosting for more than 57 associated partners world
wide in its first two years of operation. At the same time, RoomFinder,
Access Bali Villas,
and Bali Preferred
Hotels were launched.
Access Bali Online also engineered free-access information
to support content for visitors and clients. RoomFinder grew rapidly,
and in February 1998 diversified into the Reservations Department of Access
Bali Online, with continuing success and
rapid growth rates, showing a 90% return of purchasers. More specific
websites, properties, and services within a typical template assure complete
information is continually supplemented into RoomFinder.
The last quarter of 1998 brought RoomFinder and all RoomFinder Servicers
of Access Bali Online under independent license now operating as Ayu
Lestari Tours and Travel Ltd, also known as ABL Tours.
