CEO’S Message Happy 2018. Looking back at 2017, the year was certainly an exciting ride for Plataran Indonesia. Firstly, I would like to thank all our loyal guests and partners who supported us throughout the year as well as the team who brought the Plataran spirit to life. From introducing Plataran Encounters, a program that reflects Plataran’s ‘triple X’ philosophy - eXoticism, eXperience, eXcellence - through presenting destinationinspired activities to guest, and rewarding loyal supporters and guests through Circle of Friends reward program, to the opening of Plataran Menteng, Plataran Heritage Borobudur Hotel & Convention Center, and Teras Bromo to contribute on delivering a new level of authentic and exotic experiences in additional extraordinary destinations, 2017 surely was an enthusing year of introducing and strengthening the Plataran community. Also, Plataran L’Harmonie – West Bali National Park, being only in its third year of operation, has once again been recognized by the international and national communities with its continuous efforts on developing the area as a world- class ecotourism destination. Not only having the honor to be awarded by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism with a “Green Silver“ award at the Indonesia Sustainable Tourism Award 2017, but also, for the second consecutive year, Plataran L’Harmonie has been awarded by Green Destinations as 2017 Sustainable Destinations Top 100, marking the achievement as the only green destination representing Indonesia. Lastly, it has been an enthralling year with Plataran Indonesia stepping a foot into the sports community by organizing, hosting, and sponsoring international and national sports events such as: our very first Plataran X Trail at Plataran L’Harmonie, the annual Bromo Marathon at Teras Bromo and Borobudur Marathon at Plataran Borobudur. Looking ahead, 2018 will be another big year for Plataran Indonesia; filled with new openings and enhancements, community and sports events, packages and encounters designed to immerse you in Indonesia’s most enchanting destinations, embraced by Plataran’s renowned three X factors. We hope you enjoy our bi-monthly magazine that will help you stay in tune with happenings and exclusive specials of the month for our hotels & resorts across the archipelago. Unforgettable experiences await your discovery in 2018!

Destination.

WEST BALI NATIONAL PARK God’s Secret Courtyard Plataran L’Harmonie – West Bali National Park Plataran L’Harmonie – West Bali National Park is spread across 382 hectares in the Buleleng Regency at the northwest tip of Bali. The national park itself was established in 1941 to protect the area’s rich flora and fauna, most notably the endangered Bali Starling bird and the last remaining wild banteng. Its dense biodiversity encompasses many distinct ecosystems – from primary monsoon, mangrove and lowland rain forests, to savanna and seagrass landscapes, as well as shallow and deep-sea waters with sandy beaches and coral reefs. With a vision to be the premier nature-oriented destination in Bali and a sustainable tourism benchmark, Plataran L’Harmonie West Bali National Park offers an unparalleled experience of West Bali’s wild side through its beautiful resorts and retreats, unique dining experiences, private cruises, and leisure activities.

People.

Plataran Private Cruises Crews. Plataran Private Cruises team has always shown strong teamwork and demonstrated outstanding performances by delivering exceptional customer service, high safety records, and extensive knowledge on local encounters and cruises. Meet some of our crew members who conquer the sea with Plataran pride.

06

Charles Torare, who once joined the crew as the youngest member, is now a senior cruise attendant with 7 years of experience. Originally from Ruteng – Manggarai, Charles moved to Labuan Bajo when he was 17. He joined Plataran after 2 years of experience on a local phinisi as a captain’s assistant and guide around Raja Ampat. He made the decision to move to Plataran to further his career in a brand that delivers an international standard yet keeping the authenticity of Indonesian culture. He commented that his move to Plataran is “the best career decision he has made.” His most treasured moments are capturing the raw beauty of nature while sailing around the prestigious waters of Flores and interacting with guests by sharing interesting stories.

Behind the delicious food being served on our phinisi, there is always someone embracing the challenge of cooking at sea. Sirilus Agon from Lembor – West Manggarai is Plataran Private Cruises’ Assistant Chef. With his sole passion of cooking, Sirilus joined the team 2 years ago as his first job. He mentions that his learning journey with Plataran has been a unique culinary experience as well as a challenge to work in a limited kitchen space once the phinisi sets sail; however, the process and results are rewarding as he can cook and serve food in a picturesque setting. Considered as a “newcomer” among his team members, he always appraises his crew “Favourite and most loyal team ever. I have learned so much about sailing. Although it was my first job, my team made it possible for me to survive on the sea.”
