1986 - 2008
Bali Handara Country Club formed a joint venture with Kosaido Club Japan and the move strengthen Bali Handara’s position in the Japanese market. The name then was changed into Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club.
An unfortunate year for Handara. After a week long constant rain, the trees around the resort couldn’t hold the heavy downpour resulting in a mudslide that damaged the east wing. Thankfully there were no other casualties. The disaster prompted the re-building and re-branding efforts.
The Handara brand's commitment lies in its evolution and dedication to continual improvement to sustained growth. Handara is pleased to welcome both golfers and non-golfers, having been named the "Best Golf Hotel in Indonesia" by the World Golf Award in 2015.
