Sun Island Bali Group, a corporate hospitality management based in Bali, is proud to introduce our new Director of Sales, Mr. I Made Agus Suryawan.
Born and grown up in Bali, Surya, as he is often called, has 16 years of experience in the hospitality industry, which includes working in the area of sales and account in top-tier hotels in Bali. He began his first professional hotel career immediately after graduating from Bali Tourism Institute in 1998. Holding a diploma in Hotel Management, his first stepping-stone was a one-year opportunity as a waiter at The Grand Beach Bali (now Inna Grand Bali Beach). In circa 2000, he started expanding his career from a Sales Executive to becoming Account Manager, handling domestic and Asia market, as well as the E-Commerce at the same hotel. In 2004, Mr. Surya moved to Bali Dynasty Resort and worked as Sales Manager before taking the same role in The Bali Khama in 2007.
In early 2009, Mr. Suryawan took on a new challenge with Hard Rock Hotel Bali, where he started off as Senior Sales Manager during which he was awarded Best Manager of 2009. 2012 marked a milestone in Surya’s career when he was promoted to oversee the Sales Department as Director of Sales. Surya went on to showcase his prowess for the company for the next three years after his appointment.
In mid-2015, Sun Island Bali Hotel Group offered Mr. Agus Suryawan an opportunity to lead the Corporate Sales team to a better direction. He took the significant role as the Director of Sales overseeing all properties managed Sun Island Bali Group. He believes Sun Island Bali Hotel Group is a fast-growing hotel chain richly characterized by Balinese hospitality culture. “Balinese hospitality is renowned world-wide as the warmest and the most hospitable,” he said, referring to the core nature of hospitality found in all Sun Island Bali hotels. The father of two who loves watching detective movies, watching live rock concerts, and playing music instruments aims to optimize each of the hotels’ growth effectively and justly as each has its own unique characteristics. As for the Sun Island Bali Group, he thoughtfully said,“Growing all of the properties equally is the mission,” as he defined his goal. With Mr. Agus Suryawan’s experience and insight, Sun Island Bali group could expect a promising future.
