Ayana Resort and Spa has become the first hotel in Bali to be certified as Tsunami Ready, following a comprehensive audit and training program.
Although Ayana's cliff-top location 35 meters above the ocean puts it and its guests at low-risk in case of a tsunami, the hotel wanted to be prepared to take care of guests in case of any emergency.
"We may be considered low-risk because of our cliff-top location, but that is no reason to be complacent," said Ayana's General Manager Charles de Foucault. "This certification will enable us to safeguard our guests and also assist with people from outside the hotel who may come to AYANA to seek refuge on higher ground, in case of a tsunami."
Ayana's 78 private villas and 290-room hotel are located on towering cliffs above Jimbaran Bay, on Bali's south-western peninsula. The award-winning resort occupies 77 hectares of cliff-top land along a 1.3 kilometer coastline. Most of its facilities including the Thermes Marins Bali Spa and 10 different dining venues are located on the cliff-top; beach-front facilities comprise the iconic Rock Bar, Spa on the Rocks treatment villas, Ocean Beach Pool, Kisik seafood restaurant, and secluded Kubu Beach.
