INTRODUCING KEVALA HOME AND NATURAL LIGHT CANDLE COMPANY
Nusa Dua, Bali, March 2015… The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali is delighted to welcome two exclusive new retail outlets as a valuable addition to its boutique shopping arcade. The arrival of Kevala Home and Natural Light Candle Company will complement the resort’s recent remarkable transformation that was carried out over the course of several years.
Kevala Home specializes in hand-made products and contemporary statement pieces created by a skilled team of Balinese artisans. The company is mindful to produce functional items that are as durable as they are beautiful. Each piece is individually hand-crafted and as such, ultra-slight variances in glaze, size, texture and weight may exist. These inconsistencies are inherent to the whole ceramic process and are historically considered to be an attractive aspect of the craft.
Kevala’s creations are proudly displayed in some of the finest homes, hotels, restaurants and spas around the world. With years of experience, Kevala’s insatiable appetite for fresh concepts in stoneware design is evident in the exquisite array of pieces now on display at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
Candles calm the mind, lift the spirit and bring a little bit of luxury into the home. Our second retail outlet, Natural Light Candle Company, produces candles in a rather old-fashioned way at its large Bali workshop. Each candle is individually hand-crafted by talented artisans, using long-burning natural beeswax blends and fine European fragrance oils. The company is the only one of its kind in Asia to receive the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts.
In-house guests mingled with outside visitors to participate in an array of summer-inspired games that took place in Prego’s tropical garden. There were prizes galore for the winners of classic activities such as sack races, hoop relays and Italian lawn bowls (bocce). Water balloon piñatas also provided some good old-fashioned fun for the children in attendance.
Prior to opening its store at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali Natural Light Candle Company were available only at high-end department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s and Takashimaya. However, now shoppers in Bali have access to a range of decorative candles rooted in the art of traditional handicrafts that are eco-friendly yet indulgently sophisticated.
Both Kevala Home and Natural Light Candle Company are expected to provide an elevated shopping experience for in-house guests. These artisan products are hand-crafted right here on the island of Bali and are perfect souvenirs to keep or take home for family and friends.
