London, 8 July 2010 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating segment of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), has added Bali Palms Resort to its exchange network. Just steps from the sand in the East Bali town of Candi Dasa, the fractional vacation residences include studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments available in 3, 6 or 9 month increments.
“In East Bali, the pace is slower and the locals welcome you with a warm smile,” noted Joe Hickman, Interval International’s executive director for Asia Pacific. “We’re delighted that our members will have the opportunity to visit this tranquil hideaway and enjoy the natural beauty, secluded beaches, and relaxing ambiance of the island.”
Bali Palms Resort’s units feature stylish interiors with private balcony or porch and include contemporary amenities such as satellite TV, a DVD player, and wireless internet. The property offers panoramic views of the ocean, dotted with small islands, as well as the surrounding mountains, including Bali’s highest and most sacred Mount Agung. Prime snorkelling is a short swim away from the shore in coral beds rich with marine life and colourful tropical fish. Landscaped with lush gardens, Bali Palms is an inviting place to unwind by the sea or beside the swimming pool, one of the largest in East Bali.
Other on-site amenities include the waterfront Palms Café, a fully equipped SCUBA dive centre, spa and massage centre, laundry service, and game room. Room service is available and an entertainment manager plans weekly events, including Balinese dance nights.
“East Bali has some of the country’s most spectacular scenery, including beautiful rice fields and terraces and tropical forests,” added developer Ken Birch, who along with his wife Ketut, resort president, built and manage Bali Palms. “We know Interval members are accustomed to a certain level of quality and service and our aim is to provide owners and guests with the very best of both. We look forward to welcoming them in true Balinese style.”
