Four Seasons New “Milestone Celebrations” Website

For people around the world, Bali is a dream destination for celebrating life’s milestones – whether a landmark birthday, wedding, anniversary, family reunion, graduation or other major life event. Now the two Four Seasons resorts in Bali are making it easier than ever to organise an unforgettable trip by launching the new “Milestone Celebrations” website. 

“Bali is high on most peoples’ wish lists for travel, so it’s the perfect place to choose for a group of friends and family,” says Paul Czuba, Director of Marketing for Four Seasons Resorts Bali. “Our island combines tropical beauty with so many diverse activities – from shopping and sight-seeing to sports and spa. There’s really something for everyone!” 

However, Czuba points out that planning a group trip can feel challenging. “It’s one thing for a professional travel agent or event planner to organize a group trip, but for an individual, it can be daunting to co-ordinate five, ten or more friends and family members. That’s why we wanted to create a user-friendly website, so people can see how easy Four Seasons makes it to plan a special celebration in Bali.” 

The Milestone Celebrations website includes planning tips, ideas for activities, sample itineraries, along with first-hand comments from guests who have celebrated at Four Seasons Resorts Bali. Especially valuable is the section of frequently asked questions, covering travel logistics, organisation and budgeting. 

There are many ways to customise the trip to your group’s tastes and interests. You can choose the ocean-side Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, or the jungle-immersed Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan – located just 90 minutes apart. You can opt to stay a few days at each resort, or make a day trip to the other property to enjoy spa or dining. 

The range of accommodations is also flexible. Friends can share a four-bedroom Residence Villa or book a cluster of free-standing villas – enjoying the perfect balance of together time and alone time. 

The first step is to visit Milestone Celebrations website then contact the Celebrations Concierge (celebrations.bali@fourseasons.com) with an outline of your plans. The Four Seasons Resorts Bali team will work closely with you to develop a program that best suits your group.
