JIMBARAN - BALI, 6 November 2013 – With the help of a “rainstopper” to ensure a picture-perfect sunset, RIMBA Jimbaran Bali celebrated its grand launch as another unique 5-star hotel in Bali by AYANA Resort and Spa.

The event was also an introduction of new General Manager Roger Habermacher, who is responsible for both RIMBA and AYANA. He brings 16 years’ experience in luxury 5-star hotels to the role. “It is such an honor and a privilege to be joining this team at such an exciting time in the evolution of this resort,” Roger told guests at the event.

Under the same management of Capella Hotel Group, RIMBA features 282 rooms and suites to expand on AYANA’s 368 rooms and villas. The 8 hectare resort, whose name is Indonesian for ‘forest’, is located within AYANA’s 77-hectare grounds overlooking Jimbaran Bay.

The event, attended by some 700 travel partners, media, and community VIPs, featured a sensational line-up of international and local performers and a choir of the hotel’s employees. For many, the most touching performance was by Hayley Gene Penner, a Canadian singer-songwriter who composed AYANA Resort and Spa’s theme-song, “Until I’m Back to You”. Penner performed the track with a choir comprising employees from AYANA and RIMBA. This was followed by the official opening of RIMBA and a 5 minute spectacular fireworks show with missiles that set alight a giant “RIMBA” sign above the main stage.

To celebrate its opening, RIMBA Jimbaran Bali has launched an introductory offer valid until 22 December 2013. Save up to 36% on with special benefits including daily breakfast, Balinese massage for two people and US$50 Resort Credit per room. For more information and reservations, contact or book online at
