Beritabali.com receive its latest honorific title on December 27, 2011, in a ceremony held at Nusa Dua in Bali.

The WPC cited nine reasons for declaring Bali is the “Island of Peace,” including the strength of traditional law among the Balinese; the universal respect for concept of Tri Hita Karana which mandates harmony between Man, Nature and God; and the spirit of the Balinese people who voice peace, rest, calmness, tranquility, or bliss – embodied in the word "Shanti" – in all their daily activities.

The President of the World Peace Committee, Djuyoto Suntani, said Bali was entitled to the honor of being declared the “Island of Peace” given the island’s commitment to working for peace. In addition, several peace-committed organization and world peace leaders make their home or frequently visit Bali in the pursuit of peace.”

“People from all over the world stream to Bali to find peace on this beautiful island. This is the name bestowed by Nature. People ‘come home’ to Bali from all nations. Bali is where they gather; where they seek peace – all nations, all religions,” Explained Suntani.

Suntani said further proof of Bali’s position, as the “Island of Peace” is the building of a giant peace gong located in Nusa Dua near The Bali Collection.

The “Peace Gong” measures 5 meters across and is adorned with symbols from nations around the globe.

Standing in close proximity to the Peace Gong at Nusa Dua are a collection of statues depicting world leaders who have received the Nobel Peace Prize, including: Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela.
