    • Despite the lack of direct flights between

    • On the sidelines of the Indian Travel Congress 2015 held recently in Bali,
      Samabe Bali Suites & Villas general manager, Ralf Luthe, said the Indian
      wedding market for his property has been rising, mainly through word-of-mouth.

    • He added that “The wedding business is
      better than incentives because with weddings, the organizers don’t cut
      corners.”
    •  
    • Bali can also cater well to this market
      due to the broader size range of 150 people to bigger groups of 300 and more,
      according to I Nyoman Juniarsa, Grand Nikko Bali’s director of sales for
      leisure.

    • Vikkram Kumar Kalra, a wedding planner in
      Bali specializing in Indian weddings who handled seven Indian weddings in the
      first three months of 2015 said: “Despite the lack of flights, Bali is seen as
      an attractive destination, has a similar culture with India and is known as the
      land of a thousand temples. Indian priests are also available in Bali while
      English is widely spoken at the hotels.”

    • According to Cox & Kings’ associate
      vice president, corporate communications and CSR, Thomas C Thottahil the lack
      of direct flights has never been an issue as he says. “Destination
      weddings are planned at least eight months prior, so there is never a shortage
      of seats. In addition, we do bulk bookings with the airlines, so we are able to
      negotiate for better airfares.” Cox & Kings has seen 10 to 15 per cent
      year-on-year increase in Indian weddings to Bali.

  1. Have you used any of these
    Have you used any of these softphones? Are you able to state for sure whether one of them actually works or maybe
    not, and specifically whether it may document the entire phone rather than just bits and pieces?
    I am cautious of spending good money for crap software, notably specialized
    software which isn’t well-analyzed.
