Bisnis Indonesia reports that PT Klapa New Kuta Beach, a company owned by Tommy Soeharto, the youngest son of Indonesia's 2nd President, is investing US$100 million for entertainment facilities to be located within the Pecatu Resort Complex in Jimbaran.

The Commissioner of PT Klapa New Kuta Beach, Made G. Putrawan, confirmed the investment that will be "unique, full of character and have an interesting environment" that will create a strong destination within Bali.

Putrawan said the Pecatu facility will rival Ibiza in Spain and eventually become a national and provincial tourism icon.

The entertainment complex will cover 3.4 hectares of the Pecatu development and will feature a number of entertainment options and a parking area covering 2,000 square meters. A main building will have two restaurants with Mediterranean themes, two clubs and a karaoke lounge. Other planned facilities include two lounges, a beach club, a plaza area, pool, wine shop and a wedding chapel.

Putrawan said the entire complex will offer dramatic views of the Indian Ocean.

Pecatu Indah Resort

The Pacatu Indah Resort ( PIR ) covers a 400 hectare site and will serve as home to 12 star-rated hotels, including the 120-room Hotel Le Grande and 278-room Best Western.

The PIR is already home to an 18-hole championship golf course which will host the Indonesian Golf Open set to take place on February 26, 2009.

An exhibition center capable of accommodating 3,000 people is also planned for the PIR.

Made Putrawan estimates the total value of the PIR complex will exceed US$750 million.

Local Opposition

17 hectares of the 400 hectare PIR complex is being contested by 20 families who are refusing to surrender ancestral lands to the project.

Tommy Soeharto told Kompas that if the 17 families agree to accept offers of replacement parcels of land they will also be compensated with jobs at the PIR If, however, should the families refuse to leave their tracts of ancestral lands they will be refused employment opportunities at PIR.
