Courtyard by Marriott's Winning Kids Club Debuts at Bali Resort

BALI, INDONESIA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua has opened the doors to its sensational Kids Club, the global brand's hugely successful children's play zone created especially for families.

The Kids Club debut at the 900th hotel in the Courtyard global portfolio completes the final piece in the puzzle for the resort in its ambition to become the accommodation of choice for families holidaying in Bali.

Children between the ages of three and 12 staying at the resort will enjoy free access to the fun available at Kids Club. Running between the hours of 08:00 and 20:00 means there is ample opportunity during the day for children to enjoy both spending time with their peers and making new friends -- while their parents make full use of the excellent leisure facilities on offer at the resort.

Kids will be enthralled with the wealth of activities provided at the Bali kids club resort, including yoga, treasure hunts, singing, Balinese dress up, dance lessons, cooking and face-painting. There is also an art and craft area, gaming zone, library, kids' theatre, nail art and hair braiding, kids' pool plus a cinema and nap room for when they need some downtime. A nutritious lunch is provided in specially designed lunchboxes for anyone that requires it.

"The opening of the globally recognised Kids Club is further confirmation that Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua has reached the pinnacle in family entertainment, always ensuring the highest standards," said Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua Director of Sales and Marketing, Nicolas Reschke.

"Many of our guests come here as families and want to spend that precious time together. We are positive the Kids Club will be well received by international guests and Indonesian visitors alike, who enjoy the overall family concept of the resort."

The 250 deluxe-room new build Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua opened in March this year and is renowned as a safe, family friendly resort in Bali.

Thanks to its convenient location and two ballrooms -- with the largest accommodating up to 180 people for dinner or up to 324 theatre-style -- the resort is also perfect for hosting celebrations and corporate events. A fully equipped gym armed with state-of-the-art equipment and personal trainers is also at guests' disposal and the scenic 18-hole golf course of the Bali Golf & Country Club is located close by. The Bali spa resort is a ten-minute drive to a nearby beach presenting guests with a wide variety of water sports including parasailing, jet skiing and surfing.
