Dwi has enjoyed a colourful career in hospitality, having started her journey as a bartender before venturing into Events and Sales. Her career switch was inspired by a colleague from her time in Dubai, UAE. “The Director of Events at that time was an amazing, fierce lady who ignited my interest in Events, and the rest is history,” says Dwi whose last position was Director of Sales and Marketing of Four Points by Sheraton in Kuta.

Dwi’s experience spans almost two decades in numerous luxury hotel brands, such as The Andaman, Banyan Tree, InterContinental and Alila, in Indonesia, Malaysia and UAE. In her new role, she hopes to present the first Andaz in Indonesia as a leading luxury lifestyle hotel on the island. “The pandemic has only amplified our need to explore and see the world. Andaz Bali offers a ‘different’ type of luxury that’s relevant to today’s traveller, with its vast open space, mature garden and personalised service.”

Dwi is a keen educator and is a contributor to Kelas Inspirasi, an educational platform where professionals can share their career stories with elementary school students around Indonesia.
