Sheraton Hotels and Resorts, a conglomerate of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, hosted a 24-hour “Toast Around the World” program on May 15. More than 400 Sheraton establishments took part in this premier social hour event series from Asia to Europe, including branches from Mexico City, Edinburgh, Bali, Bangalore, Singapore, Munich and New York. The day long celebration kicked off in Asia at the Sheraton Hong Kong and Sheraton Shanghai Pudong. The toast was passed virtually around the world and concluded at the Sheraton New York Times Square and the Sheraton Waikiki.

We were privileged to be invited down to the new Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort to take part in the festivities. The event was hosted at ‘The Lounge’ over-looking the stunning Indian Ocean – a fitting venue for guests to socialize over samplings of fine wines and eats. It was a treat to sample and enjoy wines that have been rated 85 or higher by Wine Spectator. The wines were paired with choice bites of meat cuts, cheese, grapes and chocolate.
