I’ve Been to a Marvelous Party
The Mulia Bali Hosts an ‘Appreciation Night’ Like No Other with Food, Fashion and International Singing Sensations ‘Il Divo’
Hosted on an invitation only “appreciation party” for friends and business associates of the Resort, the first such party hosted by The Mulia in Bali followed in the proud footsteps of its Sister-property, Hotel Mulia, Senayan, Jakarta, that has over the years established the standard for such affairs in he Nation’s capital.
Guests, all formally dressed with their precious invitations in hand, were welcomed with Champagne in The Mulia’s Conference Center’s expansive foyer area. A short while later, the Ballroom’s doors opened to reveal a venue lavishly decorated in white and resplendent in fresh flowers.
An haute couture fashion show by Indonesia’s very own Adrian Gan mesmerized those in attendance before they feasted on a five-course dinner. Like the rest of the evening, no expense was spared as waiters served course-after-course that included ingredients such as ostera caviar, Alaskan King Crab, morels, Artisanal black truffles, Wagyu No 9 beef with foie gras and imported chocolate.
Live music during dinner was provided by a talented duo singing evergreens from the classical jazz songbook.
After dinner, four senior members of the Hotel’s staff briefly took to the stage to welcome the guests. Then, brimming with bravado they performed a good-humored musical rendition of “Fly Me to the Moon” that would have done credit to the legendary “Rat Pack.”
But without doubt the highlight of the evening was the concert après dinner provided by the extraordinarily talented platinum pop vocal group – IL Divo. Singing their trademark blend of popular, romantic and operatic numbers that have charmed audiences worldwide for more than a decade, and backed by a small string orchestra, Il Divo sang creating musical memories of a lifetime for their privileged audience.
With more than 26 million albums sold, over 50 number one hits, and 150 gold and platinum awards the four dashing singers were concluding their latest whirlwind world tour with a stop in Bali.
As a leading independent luxury hotel in Indonesia –The Mulia, Mulia, Resort & Villas – Nusa Dua, Bali opened its doors in December 2012 with the stated aim of providing facilities and services at an unrivalled level of personalized service and dedication to customer care.
In keeping with these aims, the “Appreciation Night” was meticulously planned and flawless in every detail of its execution.
