Gold Medal of Tri Hita Karana for Bali Mandira

Bali Mandira Beach Resort & Spa proudly announces receipt of Gold Medal of prestigious Bali’s Tri Hita Karana (THK) Awards which was held at Bali Safari & Marine Park on 26 November 2011.

This achievement reflects the efforts and active participation of our resort to maintain the harmony of Bali’s unique culture towards environment, spiritual life, and human relations.

Tri Hita Karana is a Balinese Hindu philosophy that represents the harmonization of the relationship between humans and God (Parahyangan), human to human (Pawongan), and human with the environment (Palemahan) into an integral unity. These three sources create harmony and preserve the balance to peaceful life and happiness.

New chef at Bali Mandira

We’re proud to introduce you our new chef, Arouna Ilboudo. From the beginning of December 2011, he became an integrate part of our dedicated and talented food & beverage team.

Arouna, age 38, was born in the picturesque region of Normandy, North-West France.  He started cooking at the age of 16 in his native country, spending years later in fine restaurants from the UK, Belgium and Switzerland. We were pleased to find out that he was the catering chef at the famous Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

Although he traveled a lot around the world, Arouna decided to live in Bali since 2006.  He said he loves the island and its kind people. A very quality oriented chef, he hopes to have a very good experience at Bali Mandira with nice and tasty results. Bonne chance, Arouna!

Also we would like to express our gratitude for our previous chef, David Cailleba, for being a part of Bali Mandira staff for the last two years.

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!
