(4/28/2006)

The bombing attacks on October 1, 2005, devastated two popular spots: a seafood restaurant on Jimbaran Beach and Raja Restaurant in downtown Kuta. In all, 23 people lost their lives and over 100 suffered injuries resulting from the blasts.

On that night at Raja's, 3 employees – a female cashier, a waiter and a security guard died, while at least 4 employees suffered serious injuries.

Raja's Back

Refusing to surrender to terror, the owner of Raja's Restaurant, Rudi Limas resolved shortly after the tragedy that his restaurant would reopen. In keeping with that commitment, Rudi continued to pay his employees and provide assistance to injured employees who survived the blast and the families of his dead employees.

Now, 6 months after its closure, Raja’s Restaurant has opened its doors once again, but in a new location in Seminyak. At a happy opening party on Wednesday, April 12, 2006, staff members of the “old” Raja welcomed guests to the new second-floor outlet located at the Bintang Supermarket Complex in Seminyak.

Pleased to be offer re-employment to all of his staff who were welcomed back to their old positions, Rudi displayed an equanimity of spirit, rare in most places but common in Bali, telling the Indonesian-language DenPost that he bears no resentment or hatred for those who destroyed his business and caused death and misery among his staff and customers. Explaining, Rudi said he saw the bombing perpetrators as "victims of indoctrination and brainwashing," who would never have committed their terrible acts if fully aware of their actions and its consequences. Similarly, Ni Wayan Sudeni, the fiancée of waiter I Gusti Ketut Sudan, to whom she was scheduled to marry just one month after the date of his death in the blast, said she preferred to leave the justice system to resolve the case, praying only that Bali would never again be affected by another bombing. Several service staff, still bearing residual scars and injuries from the fateful night six months earlier, were unanimous in expressing their happiness at being back on the job, able to welcome guests back to Bali.

A New and Safer Bali

Like the rest of the Island, Raja’s Restaurant & Coffee Lounge has been fundamentally changed by the events of the recent past. Guests entering the restaurant are now routinely checked by security staff and 8 CCTV cameras maintain a constant vigil on the restaurant and all its approaches.
