Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort hosts Miss World 2013 Contestants

Bali, Indonesia, 11 September 2013 - The award-winning Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort is proud to be the first in Indonesia to welcome and host 129 contestants from this year’s Miss World pageant, along with pageant organisers, crew and media from 2-6 September.

The stay at the expansive 103-hectare integrated golf and spa resort was part of the exciting activities leading up to the grand finals in Indonesia on 28 September.

“Our comprehensive range of facilities and iconic location offers the perfect setting to introduce the lovely contestants from around the world to the beautiful island of Bali and to Indonesia. With our signature Pacific Touch that is conveyed through the resort’s calming ambience and our discreet, personalised service, we had the pleasure of providing the contestants with a delightful experience of getting acquainted with the Balinese culture and being a part of their unforgettable pageant journey in Indonesia,” says Ivan Casadevall, General Manager, Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort.

The Miss World 2013 contestants received a traditional Balinese welcome with indigenous rindik (Balinese bamboo) tunes performed by local musicians. During their stay, the contestants engaged in dress rehearsals as well as photo shoots and filming at the resort, against breathtaking backdrops of sunsets along the majestic Indian Ocean and the exotic Tanah Lot temple.

The video highlights of the contestants’ activities at Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort will be screened during the live broadcast of the highly anticipated pageant finals in Indonesia on 28 September, which is expected to draw over two billion viewers world-wide.

As part of the pageant festivities, Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort also hosted the Miss World 2013 Golf Tournament on 8 September. Some 120 participants took on the resort’s award-winning Greg Norman 18-hole championship golf course to compete for a winner’s trophy and seats at the 2013 Miss World opening ceremony and welcome dinner later that evening.
