Translated from German, Zeitgeist means "the spirit of the moment", and is the key principle underpinning AYANA's service philosophy. Here, we share our inside tips and favorite haunts to help you experience the AYANA Zeitgeist.
My name is Gede Bear and I am a repeat guest at AYANA. I first checked-in last December and have come back this year with my new girlfriend Ayu to join an exciting festive program. It sparks to life with the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony tonight, and then I will be star attraction at the Teddy Bear Tea. (There will also be a big man in a red suit to hear the children’s wish lists, but I know Ayu will only have eyes for me.) We will not miss Breakfast with Santa at the Children’s Pool, jazz at Rock Bar, afternoon tea at Damar Terrace, the 12 Days to Christmas spa offers, Justin Quek’s guest appearance at Dava and the festive menus from our team of acclaimed chefs. Finally, what better way to welcome 2012 than with a New Year’s Eve performance by Mike’s Apartment, before hibernating in my villa to rest a little.
