The Big Cheese

The big cheese with Bloomfield Bali’s Sally Bloomfield

We sat down with the former Real Housewives of Melbourne star turned hotelier to find out what she had for breakfast. Oh and a few other things…

The great thing about my job is…

Building a hotel from scratch and watching it grow. I love working with my team here and planning our next venture. I love working on the design, the marketing, the legal side of things and getting to travel all the time.

The challenge for the industry is …

Making your hotel have a point on difference. There are so many hotels in Bali so you need to stand out and have a great product with a great price point.

My greatest achievement is…

Opening the hotel after my husband passed. It was our dream and I completed the project by myself, it was a proud moment when we finally opened.

I try to relax by…

Having plenty of massages when I am here and spending time in or near the water.

I don’t understand why…

We can’t two 6 month holidays twice a year!!

My favourite venue/destination is…

Bloomfield Bali of course!!!

I’ve always wanted to travel to…

India, Croatia, Spain..

I am scared to death of…

Sharks!

I can’t live without…

French cheese and my children

I really wish I had…

Another hotel in Bali, twin boys aged around 13, better eyesight and 10 years shaved off my life…

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be…

Donald Trump for the crazy in the room, Keith Richards for music and stories, Poppy Delevingne for fashion and model gossip and my husband Ian Robertson for one last laugh… Hopefully Trump would throw a tantrum and leave early and then we could really get the party started..

For anyone starting out in the industry one piece of advice I’d give would be….

Spend time in all facets of the industry, work hard and surround yourself with good people!
