Walking around Kuta, the tiny roads were filled with street vendors, vehicles, and tourists heading towards the beach.
The sun was shining its final rays before touching the horizon. It was one of Bali’s hottest days, but that didn’t stop people stopping by Kuta Beach Festival 2019.
Entering the festival, the main stage was brought to life by local musicians and as visitors continued walking towards the beach, lots of clothes by indie Balinese shops were being displayed; their hippest beachwear for sale. The further visitors strolled, the more varieties of foods and beverages they ran into – from Indonesian food to Western food, there were just too many options to choose from.
Four Points by Sheraton Kuta celebrated its global growth by participating in this festival to preserve Bali’s local culture and to encourage the prosperity of local Indonesian businesses as part of their ‘Four Points Around the World’ programme.
“Kick back and relax with us” is the slogan emblazoned across Four Points’ large, two-storey booth called ‘Fun in the Sun.’ It wasn’t hard to miss this booth amidst the sea of humans, considering the bean bags up on the rooftop deck and the long queue at the bar. Bean bags on the sand overlooked surfers out on the waves catching the final surf as the sun began to set.
Ordering drinks, a snack, and a meal while taking pictures and waiting for that magical Balinese was what this booth called for. It was a perfect situation for visitors who wanted to relax at the beach. If adrenaline was being sought, there were lots of outdoor activities, games, and competitions open for everyone at one of the biggest festivals at Kuta Beach, held on 11-13th October 2019.
“We wanted to invite everyone, be it friends, family, or couples, to relax and have fun while enjoying a refreshing cold beer through our Best Brews programme. Kuta Beach Festival, as the biggest festival in Kuta Beach, and The Best Brew – the only beer garden with a unique and casual concept in Kuta – was the best place to enjoy and celebrate this moment. If you are going on vacation to Bali or looking for an event to fill the weekend in Bali, everyone was invited to spend time with us and enjoy the Best Brews programme. Specifically for this event, you had a chance to win a variety of prizes, including a stay or dining voucher at the hotel,” said General Manager of Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Kuta, Franklyn Kocek.
Kuta Beach Festival is an annual event that combines both Balinese culture and music into a three-day extravaganza. Four Points by Sheraton, Kuta will also host Bali Cultural Night, every Saturday between 19th October – 30th November 2019.
“The event is designed as a cultural night where anyone can come and have fun, living through the various events lifting Bali’s culture such as a Gebogan parade, Balinese traditional dances, and fire dances, then savouring local delicacies and singing along with musical performances by local artists. Even beer drinking games are in store,” said Director of Sales Four Points by Sheraton, Kuta, Andi Bagistav Oddek.
