Dear friends of Matahari,
the sun goes down at the Matahari.
Since nearly 25 years we keep you updated at this place with our newsletter. Full of informations, awards and seasonal highlights regarding our Matahari Beach Resort & Spa. Also today we want to share the news with you.
Breaking news, to be honest.
The whole world has been dealing with a situation beyond what any of us could have imagined even a few weeks ago. Out of nowhere it comes and the situation surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19 is changing rapidly with light speed. The virus has created unprecedented challenges for global tourism and especially to our beloved Matahari.
The worldwide impact is huge. Even the most experienced experts are not able to give a final statement reagarding the overall extent. But one thing is quite sure: Our mother earth wont be never the same as bevor Corona outbreak.
In changeable times like this, for us the most important target is to stay with our valus. First of all, far out of any discussion, the health safety and security of our guest and also our team of employees, the entire Matahari family will be the goal.
To ensure this mayor target also for future, we have analysed and dicussed all available scenarios and possibilities among ourselfs and with support of consultants. The result have been clearly recognizable. Heartbroken we decided to close our traditionell balinese double doors for eternity from the 17th of April 2020.
It has been the hardest decission of our lifetime. But after diving deep into serveral solutions the result has been always the same. As a small, family owned business with a great sense of seponsibility to our guests and our team, the close down of our Hotel is the one and only solution.
At the moment we are busy with processing of all necessary steps inline with local goverment authorities and related partner companies. With a main focus on creating socially acceptable solutions for our employees.
At this moment we would like to take also the opportunity to thank all of you for your loyalty and your patnership during the last 25 years. Keep us in good memory and let our small paradise on the islands of gods stay alive at your hearts.
And most important at these moment, we wish you please stay health and fit.
"Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, OM"
