Kuta Paradiso Hotel Bali introduces Indonesian food through cooking class. The guest activity taking place every week is followed by foreign guests such as Taiwanese, Chinese, Japanese and domestic and they are dominated by Australian. Venue of the cooking class is also very cool because it is located in open air and near the pool.
Marketing Communications Manager, Fenty S Prawiraatmadja, said that guests participating in the cooking class would cook meals like simple Indonesian food and Balinese traditional food that were tasty and easy to cook. For example, they consisted of satay, fried banana, fried jackfruit, shrimp dumplings, chicken, vegetable and fruit carving. “Later on, they will be able to enjoy their own cooking results,” she explained.
Participants of the cooking class, continued Fenty, could be followed by anyone as long as they stayed at the hotel. “The number of participants is uncertain, depending on their wishes. Sometimes, it can reach up to ten or even dozen. Many guests are curious because there is no suck kind of food in their home country. To arrange them was too easy as the participants appreciate this activity,” she said friendly.
Fenty said the activities did not only include the cooking class but also Hitea. It was a habit of drinking tea made by the Europeans while enjoying a snack, sitting back and relaxing. “Participants of the Hitea are those with special invitation. Venue of the Hitea is usually the same as the cooking classes namely near the pool in order to enjoy the open air. However, if the weather is a bit cloudy we will do it in the restaurant B Couple Bar & Grill,” she explained.
Next year, she added, her party planned additional guest activities such as water volleyball competition that could be more interesting. “Here, a lot of guests are staying for long time up to months. Besides, we also have many repeaters. On that account, we want to give our guests the options with more varied activities. Hopefully, this could be quickly realized,” she hoped. (BTN/Ocha)
