Resort / July 23, 2016

Call it the Trump effect with benefits — one of Bali’s oldest five-star resorts is set to close its doors for the final time on July 31 to make way for a lavish new Trump resort — and it’s having a demolition sale to celebrate.

Luxury Escapes is offering rock-bottom prices for Aussies wanting a final stay at Pan Pacific Nirwana before Trump makes his mark on the island.

So what’s the deal? The package will cost $699 per person (twin share) for an all-inclusive five night stay and kids stay free. The offer is valued at $2585 and comes with all the luxe extras including VIP private airport pick-up, all meals, daily cocktails, spa treatments. That’s a saving of 86 - or 73 per cent.

“We anticipate the final few rooms will be snapped up fast, potentially by some of the estimated one million Australians that have stayed at the resort before and are keen to visit one last time, ” said Blake Hutchinson, general manager of Luxury Escapes.

Relax poolside without breaking the budget.

Pan Pacific Nirwana has been among the top five Bali destinations purchased by Luxury Escape members and over its 20 year history the resort has hosted government officials, foreign royalty and even the Miss World Contest and when it finally closes its doors the resort will have welcomed more than three million holiday-makers, a third of these from Australia.

“All good things must come to an end and after 20 extraordinary years, three million guests and close to 1000 weddings, it’s come time to say goodbye to this very special Bali icon, ” Mr Hutchison said.

The Jakarta-based owners of the property, PT MNC Land Tbk, have announced the imminent razing of the resort ahead of construction commencing on a new “ultra-luxury Trump 6-star resort and a destination beach club boasting 360 degrees of sheer cliff glamour”.

All meals are included in the demolition sale.

This will be the first Trump resort in Bali and only the second in Asia after MNC Lido City in West Java.

Luxury Escapes member, Deborah Stewart-Hesketh, stayed at the Pan Pacific Nirwana in September 2016.

“The vast grounds include a four-tiered swimming pool and 54 metre water slide. This was one of our favourite features of the resort and it kept my son and new friends amused for hours, ” she said.

A world-class golf course with sunsets to match.

Ms Stewart-Hesketh said the Greg Norman designed golf course and the signature hole seven is a “legendary clifftop to clifftop par three experience and provides a spectacular photo opportunity.”

Her top tip: Take the five minute walk to explore the adjacent Tanah Lot Temple market late afternoon, visit the Tanah Lot Temple at sunset and then enjoy cocktails and dinner at the numerous restaurants.
