What the Bali hospitality Industry learnt from a humble Indian family this month…

Atithi Devo Bhava! the slogan of the Indian tourism industry resounds in each one of us. We welcome friends, family and even extended acquaintances to our home, where along with an India acclimatisation guide, we offer them the best of our home’s culinary options.

So when this week, an Indian family who popped up on every whats app group , every instagram account, every facebook timeline reached a Bali resort for a holiday, they decided to give the famous line  ‘su casa, mi casa’   a different twist! The big happy family of over 10 members enjoyed their vacation, and loved their hosts so much , that they wanted a souvenir…. or SOME souvenir’s to remember them by.  And so every vase, hair dryer, towel, decoration piece, bedsheet and lamp was carefully packed to replicate their Bali resort room back home.

As creative teams of several brands stepped in to have fun by releasing memes and videos, here’s my advice for all you lovely souls managing hospitality chains-  Travellers may take a while to understand Do’s & Dont’s but here’s what you can do to safeguard your properties!

 

INVEST IN LOCK-ABLE CURTAINS

And despite all this if you’re missing an ironing board or bathroom fitting, calmly repeat ShahRukhKhan’s famous words

‘Don’t worry Senorita, bade bade deshon main, aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hain!’

Why not I ask? Tickets will be equivalent to travelling within India . Visa is on arrival . With domestic air traffic it takes the same time to fly to Goa as to Bangkok.
