When your clients ask you to perform in The Mulia Resort in Bali, you smile and look forward to what you are about to experience. We performed our unplugged roaming sets over two days during our stay at this unbelievable resort during a luxurious wedding for the happy couple, but we were lucky enough to stay in this incredible resort in luxury suites for five nights.
Upon entering the hotel, the first thing we noticed was the view – a huge open lobby allowing you to take in breathtaking views over the Bali Sea and the Indian Ocean. This is one amazing location & all five of us were stunned by the beauty of this location and this incredible resort.
The resort itself is an huge luxurious 5* complex located on the east side of the Nusa Dua peninsula in southern Bali. Every square inch of the huge complex hotel is kept to incredibly high standards at all times. Even a small pathway will look immaculate 24/7 with exceptionally high standards of design, materials, cleanliness, detail and more. Even so, the hotel never felt overcrowded with staff even though there was clearly non-stop care and attention behind the scenes. This was an ‘office’ we would definitely enjoy performing within.
Once we had checked in
Our rooms were all five star quality – large, spacious, comfortable, and let’s not forget the huge private lagoon at the back of the five rooms that we took during our stay.
A feast fit for the Hands
We ate every day in ‘The Café’, but don’t be fooled by the name – this is an incredible large area of multiple food stations (each with their own talented team of chefs) with both prepared dishes available straight away and other options they could cook right in front of you. Whether you were in the mood for seafood, meats or vegetarian options, the choice was huge with food from all over the world – this was one highlight of every day!
Breakfast was fit for a champion. The hotel introduced us to a French chef who had been flown over to Indonesia to make The Mulia’s croissants, pain au chocolats and pastries daily. Once again the attention to detail on quality was incredible. We also cannot forget an entire room dedicated to desserts – chocolate fountains, dozens of freshly prepared desserts, crêpes, cookies, creme brûlées ‘torched’ in front of you and more! It’s amazing we still fit into our tweed at the end of the week.
Staff were constantly friendly, professional, respectful and incredibly well mannered – this was hospitality on a level I have never experienced, not even in London’s own 5* hotels. Definitely tempting to put down our guitars and take a break from this ‘work’ trip.
We performed one of our unplugged roaming sets within one of the many outdoor areas – a private garden setup for an incredible evening dinner full of live entertainment and mouthwatering menus delivered by an incredible kitchen team setup in this one area of the resort. Upon our second day of performance, we entered the ballroom – an incredible huge venue decorated with style and sophistication. One seriously eye catching venue which we won’t be forgetting about anytime soon.
In summary – a stunning resort to perform within. We look forward to going back!
