Failing to Linger Longer
Bali by the Numbers: Foreign Tourists Stayed an Average 3.17 Days in Bali Starred Hotel in February 2018

The average length of stay for both foreign and domestic tourist visitors to Bali are stated at an average of 3.17 days in starred hotels in February 2018, slightly less than the average 3.44 days length of stay recorded in January.

The head of the Bali Provincial Statistic Bureau (BPS) told the State News Agency Antara that foreign tourists tend to stay longer in starred hotels than domestic tourists.

Foreign tourists stayed an average of 3.30 days in starred hotels in February, down 0.30 days when compared to the average 3.60 days of starred hotel occupation by foreigners in January 2018.

Meanwhile, domestic tourist stayed only 2.94 average days in starred hotels in February 2018, down 0.21 days to the 3.15 days average length of stay recorded in January 2018.

Broken down further, foreign tourists staying in 3-starred hotel in February 2018 stayed 3.67 days, while domestic tourists in 3-starred hotels only lingered 2.51 days. Both figures were slightly less than the lengths of stays for January.

For 4-starred hotels the length of stay for foreign tourists in February was 3.74 days, while domestic tourists stayed 3.6 days.

Well-heeled foreign tourist staying in 5 star hotels stayed an average of 2.97 nights in February, down from the 3.51 nights recorded in January 2018. Indonesian travelers staying in 5-star hotels stayed 3.83 nights in February, down from 3.84 nights in January. The longer length of stay for domestic travelers in February may be linked to wealthy Chinese New Year holiday makers from the Indonesian market.

In February 2018, 452,423 foreign tourists came to Bali, increasing from the 358,065 foreign travelers who came to Bali in January.

Think Pink in the War on Breast Cancer

Failing to Give Caesar his Due
Many Badung Restaurants Resisting Online Tax Reporting

Balipost.com reports that a number of restaurants operating in Bali’s southernmost regency of Badung are resisting efforts by the Government to install automated “tapping boxes” that instantly register the 10% tax on food applied to every bill.

The head of revenues for the Regency, I Made Sutama, admitted on Sunday, April 15, 2018, that restaurants are refusing to connect the tapping boxes. He revealed this during a series of surprise visits to four local restaurants that included the Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant, Mugshot Coffee, Rasa Sayang Restaurant and Sushi Hana.

The unannounced visit revealed that the Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant on Jalan Batu Belig was complying with the law and had a fully functioning "tapping box" instantly reporting all sales to the Badung Tax Collection Agency. Meanwhile, Sutama said that the Mugshot Coffee, Rasa Sayang Restaurant and Sushi Hana would all receive official warning letters for their failure to connect to the "tapping box" system.

Sutama said that a check on 200 "tapping boxes" in Badung Regency found 26 that were not connected with the restaurants failing to do so are receiving written warnings and reprimands.

Sutama said that companies that refuse to connect to the online tax declaration system could face the revocation of their operating permits under Regency Law No. 2 of 2016 on Online Tax Payments.

Sutama confirmed that 1,140 tapping boxes have been installed in across the Badung Regency at hotels, restaurants, entertainment centers and parking facilities.

Plans by the Regency call for the installation of tapping boxes at all taxable businesses over time.


The Idle Rich
Rich Prada Hotel Legal Missteps Leads to Closure by Badung Regency Officials in Bali

The publication of a “help wanted” advertisement by the Rich Prada Hotel in Pecatu that specifically discouraged native Balinese from applying brought an avalanche of complaints of discriminative and racist hiring practices from many walks of Balinese society. Shortly after the protests began the management of the hotel was summoned by the Badung Department of Industry and Manpower on April 18, 2018. As reported by Bisnis Bali, Oka Dirga, the head of the Department, decried attempts by the Rich Prada Bali to discriminate against the majority Hindu population of the Island. Adding: “Whoever operates a business in Bali must always honor the cultural values of the Island.”

Moreover, Oka said the advertisement was a direct violation a 2003 law forbidding discrimination in any form in the recruitment of labor. The Manpower officials also revealed that the Resort, that has been in operation since 2012, has failed to establish a written set of labor regulations as required under the law.

Law Number 13 of 2003 on Manpower specifically outlaws discrimination in hiring on the bases of tribal links, religion or race.

After receiving a written reprimand from the Manpower Department, a representative of The Rich Prada Bali apologized for the advertisement, attributing the racist “help wanted” notice to “human error.”

The scrutiny precipitated by the racist advertisement has also started a chain of events that has resulted in the temporary closure of the hotel as officials report that the hotel, that has been open since 2012, lacked the proper operational permits. DenPost.com reports that the management of the hotel agreed to close its doors until such a time as it meets a number of requirements necessary for legal operations.

Badung Regency Enforcement officials (Satpol PP Badung) formally closed the Hotel but will allow guests currently in the hotel to conclude their stay and check out.

Among the reasons cited by the Regency in refusing to issue operating licenses to the Rich Prada Resort was its failure to install an adequate fire detection system.

The Rich Prada Resort is no longer seeking new employees, Hindu or otherwise, as it remains closed until further notice.


Bali: Welcoming to Foreigners Who Donít Work
Number of Registered Foreign Workers in Bali on the Decline

Radar Bali reports that the number of foreign workers in Bali is reducing year after year, with the Government hoping that local workers will successfully fill the job vacancies created by he exit of alien workers.

Data on file on the Manpower Department and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) in Bali state that the total number of foreign workers in Bali in 2017 reached 3,000 people, reducing to 2,300 workers in 2018.

The head of the Manpower and ESDM in Bali, Ni Luh Made Wiratmi, said: “We hope that these number continue to decline. In that way, local workers can fill strategic jobs formally held by foreigners.”

Wiratmi said that the presence of foreign workers in Bali continues to be monitored. By undertaking periodic inspections at a number of companies, the monitoring team comprised of officials from Immigration, the Police, and the Department of Manpower data on foreigners working is collected.

Reports from the public and follow up investigations have managed to help officials  detect labor law violations by foreigners living in Bali.

“In 2017, several people were detected working without permits (IMTA) in Bali and were deported by immigration,” said Wiratmi. “Many of the violations we discover are administrative errors that we help correct.”

The form of the administrative violations often happens through the simultaneous placement of foreign workers in several companies at the same time or discovering a worker in a role inappropriate to his authorized job title.

“The jobs held by foreigners,” explained Wiratmi, “must be as managers, not as human resource directors or lower. How can a security guard job be filled by a foreigner?”

According to the current regulations, every foreign worker must be accompanied by a local worker. This is intended to ensure that a continual transfer of technology takes place. In this way when a foreigner's work period ends he can be replaced by a local worker. “Every foreign worker must be accompanied by one local worker,” she reminded.

Every foreign worker in Indonesia pays a training fee of Rp. 13 million each year, but Wiratmi said there was no specific target to be collected from this source.

Most foreigners working in Bali are centered in the southern regency of Badung working in the hotel and restaurant sectors. There are also many foreigners working as marketing managers, a step done in order to lure overseas visitors to Bali.

Seeking the Full Extent of the Law
Bali Guides Protest Lenient Handling by Police of Criminal Assault by Illegal Guide Working in Bali

Local tour guides in Bali are voicing their anger at a decision by the Kuta police to charge a foreigner working illegally as a Mandarin-speaking tour guide with a misdemeanor in connection with the April 5, 2018, physical assault of a local guide. To formally register their dissatisfaction, guides from the Mandarin-speaking division of the Indonesian Guide Association (HPI-Bali) and legal representatives of the victim visited the Kuta Police Precinct on Wednesday, April 18, 2018.

Beritabali.com reports the delegation urged the police to look at the attack and other physical assaults on HPI-Bali members they claim are connected to the Chinese national, Si Ahui, working illegally in Bali as a tour guide.

The delegation also called on the police to look into the suspected use of local gang member Made Yastono (33) who they alleged was paid to attack the HPI-Bali member.

Meanwhile, police are defending their handling of the matter saying the facts of the case are consistent with witnesses’ statements that depicted a simple shoving match between the Chinese foreigner and the local guide. In response, the delegation told police that they have additional witnesses prepared to testify and prove the incident qualifies for more serious felon criminal charges against the Chinese national.

Police told the delegation that they were prepared to receive additional witness statements that would prove the case exceeded the limited of simple misdemeanor assault.

Bali by the Numbers: Hoping March is a Hare that Cares


Fire: The Spirit of Creation
40th Bali Arts Festival June 16 Ė July 14, 2018

The 40th edition of the Bali Arts Festival returns June 16 – July 14, 2018, headquartered, as in years past, at the Bali Arts Center in downtown Denapsar.

"Teja Dharmaning Koripan” or “Fire, The Spirit of Creation” has been adopted as the organizing theme for this year’s Bali Arts Festival. Fire is seen as a sacred, purifying essence that can be unpredictable in nature. A source of energy that must be controlled, if left unintended can allow anger to morph into recklessness and destruction. Whether speaking of the humanity’s “fire within” or a raging blaze, control of fire can be a source of spiritual strength. In the Balinese cosmos, balance between seeming opposites sits at the center of the ceremonial and spiritual life of the Balinese-Hindus.

The “Pesta Kesenian Bali” or “Bali Arts Festival” will feature an entire month of dance, music, theatre and other art forms from Bali, the rest of Indonesia, and around the world presented by both simple village art groups and professional performance troupes. A schedule of daily performances commences with a grand parade on June 16thin Renon at the Bajra Sandhi Monument typically attended by the President of Republic.

Among the attractions expected to appear this year are dance dramas (Sendratari), contemporary theatre performance, photography exhibitions, artistic workshops, culinary events, and musical performances.

A Sporting Chance
Bali Hopes to Win Bid to Host 2024 National Sports Games (PON-XX1)

The Province of Bali is confident that its bid to secure hosting rights for the 21st National Sports Festival (PON XXI) in 2024 will be successful.

The results of the bidding process will be announced on April 24, 2018, in Jakarta.

Beritabali.com reports that an update on the bidding process was delivered to Bali’s Governor by the chairman of the National Sports Committee (KONI), Ketut Surandi, in a meeting at the Governor’s office on Thursday, April 19, 2018.

Surandi told the Governor of the various steps that have been undertaken to win PON XXI for Bali that include gathering details on sporting infrastructure, transportation and accommodation. Votes of supports for Bali’s sponsorship have also been solicited from other provinces across the Nation. Bali currently has some 130,313-hotel rooms, including starred hotels and home stays, to host athletes and officials and complement the natural beauty and culture of the Island.

“We want to become the host not because we have projects, but because we have a vision on how, through sports and PON XXI Bali, we can create a useful infrastructure. First, as a means to improve our presentation and, then, for the subsequent development of sports tourism in general to make a contribution in efforts to improve public welfare,” said Surandi.

The KONI-Bali chairman also emphasized that should the 21st PON take place in Bali, the games would be marked by “fair play” ensuring nothing happens to detract from a reputations for fair play, sportsmanship and honesty.

The Governor said he hoped that if Bali wins the hosting bid for the 2024 games this will stimulate the renovation of stadiums to an international standard and cement the Island’s reputation as a global sports tourism destination.


The Cruelest Bite of All
Motorcycle Taxi Driver Who Had Tongue Nearly Bitten Off in Rape Attack Sentenced to 5.5 Years Prison

A 23-year-old motorcycle taxi driver has been sentenced to 5.5 years in prison after being found guilty of the attempted rape of a 27-year-old Turkish woman studying in Bali in November 2017.

Edison Lumban Batu received his sentence on April 16, 2018, in a Denpasar Courtroom, receiving a sentence somewhat less than the 6 years sought by State Prosecutors.

Edison was found guilty of taking a detour to a local quarry in Jimbaran on Monday, November 13, 2017 while working as a GRAB Ojek driver. He had been booked online to drive the Turkish student from Sanur to a destination in Uluwatu when he suddenly ditoured to a remote location where he attempted to rape the woman.

Obviously in over his head, Edison encountered ferocious resistance from the woman who fought of his advances and managed to almost bite her assailant’s tongue off.

The would-be kidnapper required emergency surgery and hospitalization at a local hospital while the woman was treated for cuts and contusions suffered in the attack.

The man signaled the court that he accepted the verdict, possibly done in tongue-tied silence.

Mythical Bird Scheduled for August Landing in South Bali
Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument Promised to be Complete by August 2018

Bali’s colossal iconic landmark – the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument is set to achieve an initial stage of completion in August 2018.

As reported by travel.detik.com, the gigantic statue depicting the Lord Wisnu sitting atop a giant mythical Garuda bird has been engineered to withstand cyclonic winds and earthquakes, and will stand 121 meters tall.

The pedestal has been constructed to withstand without damage an earthquake measuring 8 on the Richter scale and winds blowing at 250 kilometers per hour. Tests on mock-up models of the statue have been performed in Melbourne and certified as safe.

A on-again, off-again project over the past 28 years, the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue will weigh  3,000 tons.

The extended wings of the Garuda are so large that they have the potential of creating wind vortexes requiring heavy strengthening reinforcement of the structure. Lightning rods have also been installed for added safety on the monument that will become the highest object on Bali’s southern peninsula.

The pedestal for the monument will contain 8 lifts and house a restaurant with the seating capacity for 500 people. A museum and gallery will also be contained in the statue's base. An addition two elevators will provide access from the pedestal to the upper part of the statue.

Located slightly below the head of Lord Wisnu will be a viewing gallery providing vistas to the adjoining oceans. FInal finishing  of the interior elements of the monument will come after completion of the exterior in August.

Developers and investors are targeting 6,000 visitors each day to the monument.

Itís Not Easy Being Green
Complaining Health and Crops are Affected, Celukan Bawang Residents in Demand Halt to Building Second Coal-Burning Power Plant in North Bali.

NusaBali reports that local residents at Celukan Bawang in North Bali have formed a People’s Association of Gerokgak for the Environment (Paguyuban Masyarakat Peduli Lingkungan Kecamatan Gerokgak) and launched a campaign in opposition to the second stage development of a coal-driven, steam powered electrical power plant.

The Association accompanied by the Rainbow Warrior ship owned by Greenpeace staged a water-based protest in the ocean surrounding the existing PLTU Celukan Bawang Power Plant at mid-day on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

The water-parade-cum-protest lasted some three hours as demonstrators dropped anchor 200-meters off shore from the coal-burning power plant. The Rainbow Warrior arrived at the plant after spending several days berthed at Bali’s southernmost harbor of Benoa campaigning on behalf of various environmental causes in Bali.

The protest at Celukan Bawang saw banners opposing the building of a second power plant unfurled using local jungkung sailing boats. The protest began with the reading of a statement condemning coal burning power plants read onboard Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior.

The protest was led by the leader of the local citizen’s association Ketut Mangku Wijana.

The State Power Board (PLN) has plans to build a second coal-powered plant at Celukan Bawang adjacent to the current plant that is currently producing 2 x 330 megawatts.

Ketut Mangku Wijana said that members of the local community are firm in their rejection of another coal-powered plant at Celukan Bawang and are concerned that the plant will poison and pollute the local environment. He complained that with the recent opening of Phase-One of the PLTU Celukan Bawang, local coconut tree have shown signs that they are dying off. Leaves on the trees have turned yellow and brown due to high temperatures.

Meanwhile, fishermen in the area lament that catches harvested since the plant's opening are now at a much greater distance from the village, increasing operational cost for fishermen.

Mangku said: “We basically reject the building of phase-II of the PLTU Celukan Bawang. We hope the company (PLN) can minimalize the impact that we are experiencing. We do not oppose the provision of electrical power, but we do oppose the use of coal to drive power plants.”

Mangku Wijana related his personal experience of higher temperatures and difficulties in breathing since the construction of the first PLTU Celukan Bawang. He claims local residents now frequently suffer coughs and dry throats that they link to coal dust in the atmosphere. Adding: “We don’t object to power plants in general because we all need electricity. We only ask that consideration be given to using new sources of energy that are environmentally friendly.”

Wijana also complained that there has been no socialization to local residents of plans to build a second power plant and that a permit has been issued for phase II without consultation with the surrounding community.

Separately, the chairman of the Environment and Energy Campaign from Greenpeace Indonesia, Didit Haryo, said the visit of the Rainbow Warrior to Celukan Bawang was to lend support to the public in defending the local environment.

Didit Haryo said the hoped that Indonesia in general would switch to new forms of energy production that are more environmentally friendly. He insisted that the use of coal to create energy was no longer effective and that coal stocks in Indonesia are diminishing. Adding, "If we do not soon change, Indonesian energy will depend on foreign sources.”

Didit Haryo concluded by saying Bali, as a “clean and green” destination, must seek new sources of energy. Based on studies that have been conducted on energy production, Bali would only need 1% of its total land area for solar panels to provide solar energy sufficient for the entire Island.


You Take the Long Road and Iíll Take the Short Road
Buleleng Regency Ready to Provide Land for Construction of a 1.8-kilometer Shortcut Highway Between Bedugul and Singaraja

As reported by NusaBali, the Regency of Buleleng has stated its readiness to make land available land for the planned construction of a north-south highway in the villages if Wanagiri and Gitgit.

The land needed for the highway’s construction covers an area of 11-hectares that is currently owned by 32 families.

The head of public works for the Regency of Buleleng, Ketut Suprata Wijaya, told the press on Monday, April 16, 2018, that the acquisition of the land for the road project will take place in 2018, but will only be undertaken by the Regency after the a change in the routing of the north-south road is confirmed by the National Road Planning Agency (BBPJN).

Original plans for the new “shortcut” highways were in a location on the western side of the present road connecting Singaraja and Bedugul. New plans for the road, however, relocate the new road to the east side of the Singaraja to Bedugul road. The new route is considered less challenging on an engineering level than the original plan.

While the proposed “shortcut” at 1.8 kilometers in length is slightly longer than the existing road of 1.5 kilometers, the new road will offer a faster road that is less winding and safer for vehicular traffic. The new route’s land requirement of 11 – hectares is almost twice the 6.6-hectares required for the original plan.

The Regency Administration has allocated Rp. 10 billion from the 2018 Budget for the acquisition of the land needed to build the new road.

Plans Being Drawn for Additional Underpass Near Gatot Kaca Monument at Baliís Airport

With the new underpass at the entrance to Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport still under construction, plans are being discussed to build another underpass along the side of the Gatot Kaca Monument “horse statue” in Tuban, on the road leading to the Airport.

Balipost.com reports that a budget is in place to undertake a feasibility study for the new underpass.

The head of the road construction division of the Badung Public Works Department (PUPR), Sang Nyoman Oka Permana, confirmed that the proposed new underpass is envisioned to reduce traffic congestion in Kuta.

To this end, a tender process is already underway for consultancy and planning services for the new underpass project.

Only after the feasibility study is in hand will officials finally decide if the underpass near the statue offers a viable answer to easing Kuta’s traffic congestion.

For the underpass to go ahead, the Regency of Badung would need to seek financial support from the National Government.


Here Comes the Sun
Baliís Green School Receives Donation of Solar Panels to Take Campus Off the Power Grid

Bali’s world-famous Green School at Sibang Kaja has made a dramatic advancement in its efforts to make a smaller footprint on the Island’s ecosystem through the installation of an off-grid solar-powered electrical system.

The school’s change to solar power was made possible through the support of Sunseap – a Singapore-based clean energy solution company.

Sunseap has donated solar panels installed at the Green School Community Innovation Hub (iHub). The iHub is an innovation center for the introduction of prototypes that are environmentally friendly with the additional intention of changing concepts of conventional education. The iHub has become an incubation center where brilliant and innovative ideas can be trialed, redesigned, and perfected for eventual wider use in the community.

Rob Khoo, the vice-president of marketing and communications for the Sunseap Group, said, Sunseap was very happy to support the Green School in Bali in their efforts to become more environmentally friendly. He said the donation of the solar panels was part of his Company’s corporate social responsibility initiative to raise consciousness in the region on the need to find new energy sources as a means of reducing carbon footprints.

The power produced by the donated solar panels will supplement the existing clean power supply coming from a water-driven micro-hydro turbine installed on a river flowing through the campus. Part of the School’s “Operation Rain or Shine” the innovative approach to power generation is meant to help the school become environmentally sustainable and inspire a wider application of clean power options in Bali and the world.


RIP: I Gusti Ayu Raya Rasmi 1939 Ė 2018.
The Queen Bee of Balinese Dance has Died

The acknowledged dance maestro of the romantic Tari Oleg Tamulilingan – I Gusti Ayu Raya Rasmi died at the age of 79 on Tuesday, March 17, 2018, at her home in the village of Abiansemal, Badung Regency.

embers reports the legendary dancer and mother of 4, grandmother of 9, and great grandmother of 2 died in her sleep after returning from the local market. She is survived by her husband AA Gede Jelantik.

IGA Raka Rasmi joined Sekaha Gong Peliatan at the age of 12 in 1951 where she displayed precocious dance abilities as a Legong dancer. During this period, John Coast, a retired English Diplomat who had taken up residence in Bali with his wife following an assignment at the British Embassy in Jakarta, was germinating an idea to take a Balinese dance and music group on a world tour. After gaining the enthusiastic endorsement of the then President Sukarno, Coast approached the semi-retired legendary dancer Mario (I Ketut Maria) to create an original romantic pas de deux to be included in the repertoire of his globetrotting dance troupe. Mario, originally from Tabanan and credited with creating the physically daunting Kebyar Duduk, initially refused the commission, citing his advancing age and a desire to spend more time pursuing cock-fighting. When Coast showed Mario pictures of the of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Ballet, Mario was reportedly instantly insinspired to create the iconic dance depiction of pollination of flowers by a pair of male and female dancers in the role of bumblebees.

Trained by Mario to dance the Tari Oleg Tamblingan were the 14-year-old IGA Raka Rasmi and 26-year-old I Sampih from Gianyar, whose talents as a pre-teen dancer were first highlighted by Canadian composer Colin McPhee in his 1930 book “A House in Bali.”

world tour of Balinese dancers and musicians is recorded in John Coast’s book “Dancing Out of Bali” where IGA Raka Rasmi appears on the cover. That tour brought the wide-eyed group of dancers and musicians to a number of European capitals including Paris, and the USA where they appeared on Broadway and made a memorable nationwide television appearance on Ed Sullivan’s “The Toast of the Town.”

Her reputation sealed as a leading proponent of Balinese dance, IGA Raka Rasmi spent a life-long career dancing and teaching with visits to China (1959), Pakistan (1964), Japan (1964), Australia (1971), Europe (1971), USA (1982 and Singapore (1996).

In a 2008 interview IGA Raka Rasmi said: “Age can approach its twilight; but the human spirit cannot be extinguished.”

I Gusti Ayu Raya Rasmi will be cremated at the Mumbul Crematorium in South Badung on Tuesday, April 24, 2018.


Defaming the Most Sacred
Follow an Act of Sacrilege at a Balinese Temple, Calls Grow to Ban Tourists from Entering Sacred Areas of Balinese Holy Places

Following extensive coverage on social media of a foreign tourist committing sacrilege by climbing atop a padmasana at the Puri Gelap Besakih, the Rector of the Bali Fine Arts Institute (ISI Denpasar), Prof. I Gede Arya Sugiartha, is depicting the tourist’s misbehaviour as a “shared mistake” with the people of Bali who have failed to adequately protect sacred sites.

On December 1, 2017, a Spaniard from Valencia, Bernat Purel Mundo, was filmed climbing the padmasana at Pura Gelap Besakih – during a period then the temple was still inside the exclusion zone surrounding the Mount Agung Volcano and otherwise devoid of visitors.

The subject video was only uploaded to social media on April 18, 2018, and immediately precipitated strong criticism from many walks of life in Bali.

Quoted in Balipost.com, Sugiartha has called on the Hindus of Bal to fastidiously safeguard the purity of Balinese religious sites from unethical acts committed by foreign tourists. The head of Bali’s school of fine arts is recommending that the central, sacred areas of all Balinese temples be declared “off-limits” to foreign tourists, adding, “Don’t make everything possible only for the sake of money.”

Speaking on Saturday, April 21, 2018, Arya warned that unless controls are put in place further sacrilege will be committed that will cause resentment in the hearts of native Balinese Hindus.

The ISI Rector's recommendation received support from the Rector of Bali’s Teachers College (IKIP), Dr. I Made Suarta, who said those in charge of temples need to close the gates leading to sacred areas of temples. At the same time, said Suarta, religious leaders need to supervise temples and safeguard their sanctity. “If necessary, the keys to the main gate (pintu utama Mandala) should be held by a Balinese priest,” he explained.

He suggests that before any tourist or guide is allowed to enter a temple area they must receive instruction on proper decorum and dress.
