The Egg Painter

Our repeater guests and friends, Mr. and Mrs. Roger and Rae Smith, have spent recently their holiday with us, here in Bali Mandira. Soon after returning in Australia, they sent us a message.

“A special wish for everyone at the Mandira and their families for a very Happy Independence Day 2012.

Also a very special thank you to Wayan Wiranata – the Egg Painter – for his very excellent oil painting and wood carved frame he completed for us during our recent stay.

We are soooo… pleased with his very very talented skills as a painter and craftsman – see attached photos.

Once again many thanks for a wonderful stay at the Mandira and all our best wishes for today and always.”

Frangipani grafting

Grafting a Frangipani tree is not an easy job. Our guest Mrs. Kim Hoodasked, who owns a frangipani tree in Australia, asked our gardening staff to teach her how to graft correctly the Frangipani tree.  Now she knows how to get many colors of Frangipani flowers in one single tree.

If you have any question about our plants, flowers, trees and gardens when visiting Bali Mandira, please ask about Pak Nurholis, our Gardener Manager. Nurholis and his team will be happy to give you all the details you need.

Happy 25th Anniversary

What a sweet message we got today on Bali Mandira’s blog! It was so nice that we decided to transform it into a post. Please enjoy it!

“Hi to all and to Bali Mandira,

My husband and I stayed @ Mandira in 1987 for our honeymoon. We head back there on 20th November, 2011 for a week. 

We have not been back to Bali since 1987 and are so excited to return to Bali and Legian, and to be staying again @ Bali Mandira.

It has changed so much, but we love Jalan Padma and the restaurants and that area and cannot wait to be there again after so long.

It is our 25th wedding anniversary soon so there is an emotional attachment for us.

Love the positive comments and blogs.

Julie and Kevin Moore”

Dear Julie and Kevin, welcome back to Bali Mandira! We’re so happy to have you again here. Please enjoy every second of your holiday. Congratulation for your 25th Anniversary!

Lovable memories

We stayed at the Mandira 16 years ago, and took our photo albums from our honeymoon to show Adi, Padmi and Geoff and they all laughed at how much the place had changed. The Bar was in a different spot and the adults pool wasn’t there.

Our time in June this year for my 40th Birthday was so wonderful! We loved how ALL the staff, including cleaners, gardeners and all as they were so very friendly, even just to say good morning and smile at us. It was always such a relaxing perfect holiday and we hope to return again next June 2012 and stay at Bali Mandira.

Thank you to everyone and I miss Padmi very much!
