Ayana Resort and Spa

AYANA Resort and Spa has announced an upgrade to its meeting and event facilities in response to increased demand for world-class venues and VIP events in Bali. The upgrade comes ahead of the opening in late 2013 of a separately-branded resort, located adjacent to AYANA on the 77-hectare Karang Mas Estate. AYANA’s enhanced facilities enable it to cater for bespoke high-profile multinational meetings, conferences, weddings and other private events. The ballroom has been extended by 45 percent to 846 square metres, with capacity for reception-style events increasing by 80 percent to 900 people from 500 previously. The extended ballroom opens onto a large private garden that provides an additional venue for outdoor events under the stars. There are three additional meeting rooms each catering for 120 people (reception-style); a 120 square metre VIP room with private catering facilities and a 22-seat boardroom set-up; and a prayer room.
