I am the Mom, Monika Sugiarto the head of the family and the driving force behind this site. I grew up in Switzerland in family hotels (Bellevue, Magglingen and Panorama, Aeschlen). My parents were passionate hoteliers and we children were immersed in it from an early age.
My calling though was in tourism. I just had to travel the world and experience it in all its beauty and glory. I also wanted to learn and participate in other cultures and discover new ways of looking at life. I worked for a Airtour Suisse, a tour operator and was posted in the Canaries, Greece, and Bulgaria. Later I traveled to Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Mauritius. Finally I was offered an opportunity to tour the Far East including Bali. That is where I met my husband.
Toto Sugiarto was working for Garuda the Indonesian airlines and my travels continued. First we were posted to Jeddah Saudi Arabia; then our son was born in Rome Italy, in Frankfurt Kathy our daughter joined us and on we went to Los Angeles USA. We spent three years in Tokyo Japan; one year in Sydney Australia before returning to Jakarta where my husband worked in the head office.
Throughout our moves around the world we stayed in many beautiful hotels but always came and still do come back to Bali for vacations. I still consider Bali my second home although I am now living in Jakarta. From the first time I stepped on Bali I fell in love with its beauty, art and mysticism. Bali is where I met my husband and this did change my life drastically.
I am also back in the hospitality industry. I am operating a small apartment/hotel rental in Puncak, a mountain resort two hours drive to the South of Jakarta. From a private vacation home with additional accommodation for friends, I have successfully developed it to three-star apartment rental that is favored by many weekenders from Jakarta as well as the Middle East. Agoda.com is showing us on its top rows because of the favorable comments and increase of rating we are receiving from our guests.
2013 Monika Sugiarto, World Class Speaker (certified by Craig Valentine) has trained General Managers in Surabaya and Sales Managers and staff in Bali for the Core Hospitality Company.
We are the Sugiarto family, we have known and vacationed in Bali throughout our lives and we all, including Fithri and Azzam Tom's wife and son, feel very much at home there.
Throughout the pages of this site I will take you through the development of Bali. How it has grown from a - two tourist beaches destination - to the magnitude of locations and accommodations it now offers. The kids will talk more on the modern, new and fashionable aspect expected by young guests and families.
Bali is still Bali and it is very much established in the 21st century. Please come back often to see the updates we made to Bali Hotel Quack!
Yes, of course you could! If you have a passion for something and some knowledge and would like to tell the world and help people you are the right person to do this. Oh, you are not a web master; do not have a clue how to set up a website? Welcome to my world, I did not know and am still not able to ‘code’ pages.
I chose a system that explains exactly where to start… and no, do not start with the name. Start with research first. This system gives you all the information, software, tips and tricks you need to be successful. Just follow it to a tee and you will be successful! What is the name of the system?
Here are some other people who are developing their businesses, successful travel sites with the same system. Giuseppe Ciotti is inviting you to visit the majestic and beautiful Dolomite Mountains in Italy.
Ray Clark an Englishman has moved to the Ukraine, Europe many years ago and loves all the aspect of this hidden gem. Go visit before everybody else has discovered its beauty.
Abbie Suh invites you to travel to South Korea in winter, spring, summer, or fall to enjoy its breath-taking mountain parks, exotic food, traditional and K-pop cultures, and fun holiday resources.

Kami sekeluarga senang menginap di Villa Tunas Alam Mutiara. Ayah saya ex HRD hotel Intercontinental Borobudur. Awal melihat villanya agak sedikit terkejut.
