Making Indonesian Eventful for Visitors
Tourism Ministry Promises Large Promotion Campaign for Sanur Festival

During a recent visit to Bali, Indonesian Tourism Minister Arief Yahya revealed that in order for Indonesia to meet an ambitious target of 20 million foreign tourists by 2019, a number of special events would be organized to help boost tourism number.

Bali’s capital of Denpasar conducts a number of routine events to further stimulate arrival numbers. Included among these events is the Sanur Village Festival, August 26-30, 2015 and the just-completed Bali Arts Festival.

The Minister warned, however, that festivals would not succeed in attracting foreign tourists unless they are backed up with strong promotion. “Our weakness has always been that we have great festivals that are badly promoted. Because of this, the Ministry of Tourism will promote existing festivals. In the near future we will promote the Sanur Festival in a big way,” explained Yahya, while meeting with the press on August 15, 2105 in Denpasar.

The Minister said that beginning on August 15th, the Ministry of Tourism would undertake a worldwide media promotion for the Sanur Festival.

“Like the Bali Arts Festival, I think the Sanur Festival is suitable to be internationally promoted. The important point is the Sanur Festival will go ahead and the Tourism Ministry will support its promotion,” said Yahya.

In response, the chairman of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB), Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, noted that the Ministry has set 80% of its budget for branding and 20% for advertisements. Wijaya said that only by letting the public know about the Sanur Village Festival could they possibly be persuaded to attend. Wijaya said that the BTB would soon establish a special website dedicated to information on Bali and on branding the destination.

Wijaya said that it remained the responsibility of local government to fund and guarantee the continued existence of local festivals.

Earth Movers in Paradise
Undersea Earthquake Felt in Bali on Thursday, August 6, 2015.

The Island of Bali experienced a moderate offshore earthquake on Thursday, August 6, 2015.

As reported by the head of the Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) for Denpasar, Wayan Suardana, the earthquake that occurred at 1:05 pm local time lasted for a few seconds and measured 5.3 on the Richter Scale.

The epicenter for the earthquake was 145 kilometers southeast of the Bali Regency of Klungkung.

The depth of the earthquake was 10 kilometers below the surface of the earth and did not result in a tsunami.

In Bali’s capital of Denpasar, Metrobali.com reported that some workers at the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) rushed outside the building when the earthquake was felt.


Elusive Targets
Indonesian Foreign Arrivals Decline in June. Can Indonesia Hit 12 million Foreign Visitors Before the end of 2015?

Voaindonesia.com reports that for all of Indonesia, foreign tourist arrivals declined 4.27% in June compared to the same month one year ago.

The drop in arrivals took place after increasing 5.47% month-on-month in May.

Figures released by the Central Statistic Bureau (BPS) on Monday, August 3, 2015, showed that around 815,000 foreign tourist came to Indonesia in June, up from the 793,500 who visited in May.

BPS blames the downturn month-on-month for June on the fasting month of Ramadan that began in late June and the resulting slow down in travel.

President Joko Widodo and the Tourism Minister Arief Yahya remain firmly committed to growing foreign arrivals to Indonesia to 20 million by 2019.

In 2014, a total of 9.4 million foreign tourism came to Indonesia.


Playing by the Rules?
Environmental Group Alleges Kempinski and Ritz Carlton Have Violated Zoning and Building Codes in Bali

Beritabali.com reports that the Bali Secretariat for the Rescue and Conservation of the Environment (SKPPLH) has accused the Hotel Ritz-Carlton and Hotel Kempinski located on Sawangan Beach, Nusa Dua, of violating height restrictions on zoning and building codes and undertaking illegal land reclamation activities.

SKPPLH also says the two luxury hotels have violated setback rules from the high water mark and from ravines/cliffs, and have also failed to incorporate Balinese architectural and design elements as required in the Badung Regency Zoning Law (Number 26 of 2013).

The coordinator of SKPPLH, Made Mangku, said on Tuesday, August 4, 2015: “Both hotels have violated setback rules from the beach, set back rules from ravines, height limitations and requirements for Balinese architectural accents. Both hotels have also undertaken reclamation activities. Before any reclamation can be undertaken permission must first be obtained.”

Made Mangku asked if the two hotels have permits to undertake reclamation? He pointed out that it is illegal to build any permanent structure within 100 meters of the high water mark, while the rule on set back for buildings on top of a cliff or ravine is two times the height of the cliff or ravine. The same zoning laws do not allow building to have more than 4 floors, which is defined as the height of a coconut tree.

Continuing, Mangku said: “Our question is, how far is the setback from the beach. how high is the cliff at these two hotels and how tall are the buildings?” Mangku suggest that photos of the two hotels show violations in all these areas, adding that the Badung rgency rules for coefficients stipulates 30% of all projects must remain green and open.

Mangku denounced the governing agencies in the Badung Administration who issued licenses and permits but failed monitor or to note any violations during the construction phase and only feign to take action after the projects are open and the violations have been committed.

Mangku sharpened his condemnation of Badung building authorities and agencies, saying: “They are like fire extinguishers. When the problem appears in the media, only then will they make a statement. But, in fact, they draft the laws and they issue the permits. This should not happen if the projects are supervised and monitored from the outset.”

Made Mangku said such poor supervision poses a risk to investors who he felt would not break the rules if they were properly monitored. “This is bad for Bali’s tourism image and for future investment. Suddenly hotels are sealed while they are being built or after they have opened. If they were provided guidance in accordance with the rules (during development), this would be preferred and avoid future problems,” said Mangku.

Made Mangku claims the Badung Region Regulation Number 26 of 2013 on zoning, Section 28 on setback from Seashores and Section 58 on maximum height, and Section 25-f on Balinese style architecture have all been violated by the two hotels. Moreover, the Provincial Zoning Law Number 16 of 2009 (RTRWP Bali) stipulates no building should be higher than 15-meters above ground level.

Balidiscovery.com welcomes and encourages both hotels to issue statements in response to the charges by SKPPLH for inclusion in a coming edition of Bali Update on www.balidiscovery.com.


Please, Non-Smoking Flights for Bali
Mt. Raung Continues to Disrupt Flight Operations into Bali

Volcanic Mount Raung in East Java continue to be highly active, spewing clouds of ash carried by shifting winds in easterly and southern directions

Based on weather satellite analysis, Indonesian aviation authorities took the decision to once again close Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport at 8:00 am on Thursday, August 6, 2015. Southeasterly winds were bringing clouds of ash as close as 18 kilometers from the Airport.

Experts monitoring the volcano have noted levels of increased volcanic activity at Mt. Raung starting from Sunday, August 2, 2015. Strong, regular tremors with a steady supply of Magma to the volcano’s two craters are being recorded with volcanic ash ejected to a height of 1,000 meters.

Volcanologists report that the type of low-viscosity magma being produced by the volcano and the low levels of gas suggest that there is little chance of a cataclysmic explosion-talking place.

The continuing volcanic activity and the threat posed to aviation by volcanic ash caused intermittent closure of Bali’s airport and flight cancellations for the seventh consecutive day through Monday, August 10, 2015.

Some carriers, including Virgin Australia and Jetstar, have in some instances opted to err on the side of caution by cancelling flights to Bali on Friday and Saturday despite the airport opening periodically for incoming and outbound flights.

In normal times, Bali’s airport welcomes an average of 10,000 foreign tourists and at least an equal number of domestic passengers each day.


Et Tu, Polson?
Australian Senior Citizen Facing Criminal Assault Charges in Bali

An Australian pensioner has been taken into custody by Bali police following a criminal assault on a man in Kuta bar.

Behind bars is 78-year-old Australian Norman Polson who police say used a knife to attack 61-year-old Scottish man, Alistair, following a verbal argument while the two were visiting the Gloria 99 Bar in Bali.

The Scotsman suffered wounds to his arm and was treated at a local hospital.

Polson, from Melbourne, now faces possible charges in the Bali courts that could carry maximum penalties of 32-month or five years behind bars.


Airworthiness is Next to Net Worth
Indonesian Government Grounds Six Financially Unsound Airlines and Puts Sixteen More on Notice

The Jakarta Globe reports that the Ministry of Transportation has kept its promise to ground financially shaky Indonesian airlines by revoking the Air Operating Certificates (AOC) of six airlines while putting another 13 airlines on notice to bolster their capital positions or also face closure.

Speaking on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan said the six airlines now grounded by his ministry are: Asco Nusa Air, Air Maleo, Manunggal Air Service, Nusantara Buana Air, Survai Udara Penas and Jatayu Air.

AOCs are given to by the government to airlines as a prerequisite to operating commercially. “They failed to fulfill the requirements needed (to maintain an AOC) after we had extended the deadline from June 30 to July 31,” explained Jonan.

The six affected airlines have one month to clean up their balance sheets and reapply for the reinstatement of their AOCs. Failure to reapply may result in suspension of their business operating licenses.

Meanwhile, 13 other Indonesian airlines were formally warned that they are not meeting their minimal capital requirements and given until September 30th to do so.

Jonan warned: “If by Sept. 30, there are still airlines with negative equity, not only we will review them but we will also forbid them to fly. The review will be conducted within four months and the final decision will be announced in October.”

Among the airlines put on warning and told to bolster their capital position is AirAsia Indonesia, owned in part by Malaysian AirAsia Berhad.

25% of All Traffic Tickets Issued in Kuta and Denpasar, Bali Given to Foreign Visitors

Merdeka.com reports that over the past 12 months the Denpasar police have issued tickets for 4,000 traffic violations, more than 1,000 of which were given to foreign tourists.

Kuta and Denpasar saw the most foreigners receiving traffic tickets.

According to the head of the traffic division at the Denpasar Police, Nyoman Nuryana, the majority of violations committed by foreigners were for traveling the wrong way on a one-way street.

Nuryana said that the number of tickets issued was much less than the number of actual violations, with many tourist visitors only receiving a warning from police.

Other common violations by foreign drivers in Bali include a failure to use a proper helmet while riding on a motorcycle or failure to hold a valid Indonesian driver’s license.

Nuryana estimates that only 20% of foreigners found to be breaking traffic rules are actually ticketed by police.

As reported by Merdeka.com, many tourists complain of being pulled over by Balinese police who demand an immediate "cash settlement" for any alleged infractions of the law.

Cheap Flights to a Cheap Destination

Virgin Australia has announced plans to end its flights to Bali in March 2016 and hand over their current routes to its low-cost subsidiary Tigerair Australia.

Flight services from Perth to Phuket will also axed.

Subject to regulatory approval, effective March 26, 2016, Tigerair Australia will fly between Adelaide and Bali five times a week, and between Perth and Melbourne and Bali on a daily basis.

The move by Virgin Australia is designed to help the airline stem losses and move into profitability in its current financial year.

Have a Smashing Holiday in Bali
Jim Courier Tennis Coaching at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Bali’s Jimbaran Bay has become a destination for active travelers with an Olympic distance triathlon, a nearby marathon, beach boot camps and yoga retreats now forming part of the active Jimbaran experience. Added to the mix for energetic travelers a new Jim Courier Tennis Program launched exclusively at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay.

Expanding its international fitness program, the resort has appointed a resident Jim Courier Tennis (JCT) international coaching professional, Ling Chan, to cater for the needs of all levels from amateur to elite.

Bringing more than five years’ experience coaching both adults and juniors in the US and Hong Kong, Chan will be in-residence until January 2016 offering daily clinics including Adults Tennis, Kids Tennis, and the dynamic and energetic Cardio Tennis for a high-intensity work-out. Private sessions, social match-ups and 'sparring' with a hitting partner are also available, and the resort’s synthetic grass court is lit for night play.

The Jim Courier Tennis program is the latest enhancement to the Resort’s fitness offerings. Guests enjoy a variety of sports-related activities following the launch of AntiGravity® or ‘flying’ yoga as well as a Visiting Practitioners (VP) Program. The VP program features a different international professional each month with sessions ranging from beach boot camps to kettle bell weight training. In-house guests enjoy a selection of complimentary VP activities and tennis clinics, while non-resident guests are also welcome to join.

“As a beachfront resort, Jimbaran is the perfect location for guests seeking an active beach holiday, perhaps to catch up on recreational pursuits that they struggle to find time for in normal daily life,” said Uday Rao, general manager of Four Seasons Resorts Bali. “The new Jim Courier Tennis program adds to our existing fitness services and community events, and guests tell us that they enjoy keeping active on holiday as much as they enjoy the relaxation and massages and great cuisine that Bali has to offer. They return home feeling reenergized and better-than-ever, and that’s exactly how a holiday should end.”

Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay has also plays a key role in community-based fitness events such as the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon, of which it has been an annual major sponsor since its inception eight years ago.

This year’s triathlon in October is expected to attract hundreds of athletes from across the globe, participating in the Olympic-distance and short courses as individuals or teams.

Minister: Make that a Double
Will Bali Welcome 10 million Foreign Tourists Annually by 2019?

Indonesia’s Tourism minister Arief Yahya remains optimistic that Bali will be welcoming 10 million foreign tourists annually by 2019.

These are ambitious targets, especially with Bali expected to end 2015 with slightly more than 4 million foreign visitors.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Yahya said while in Bali: “The current projection for foreign tourists is 4 million a year. Because of this, we need a big push so Bali can welcome 10 million tourists by 2019.”

The Tourism Minister said tourism is now localized in the Island’s south when, in fact, Bali has destination potential existing in every corner of the Island.

The Minister wants to develop new tourism destinations outside of Bali’s southern regions, including Nusa Penida island located just a few miles off Bali’s eastern shoreline.

The Minister says plans to develop the less visited parts of Bali are frustrated by the lack of infrastructure support in the form of roads, clean water and electricity.

To help promote the Nusa Penida Festival the Minister said his office would actively participate in the promotion of the event to be held in October 2015.


Failing to Meet Ministerial Expectations
Nation Foreign Tourist Arrivals Down 4.27% in June 2015

The National Statistic Bureau (BPS) reports that nationally, foreign tourist arrivals to Indonesia fell 4.27% in the month of June 2015.

One month earlier in May, foreign arrivals rose a modest 5.47% in May.

As reported by The Jakarta Globe, BPS is blaming the drop in June arrivals on the commencement of the Moslem month of fasting that began in late June.

The downturn in arrivals casts growing doubt on the veracity of continuing assertions by Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism that foreign arrivals will increase from 9.4 million in 2014 to 12 million by the end of 2015, and 20 million by 2019.

A Deadly Buzz
Most of Bali's Dengue Fever Deaths Recorded in Baliís Capital of Denpasar

Information provided by the Bali Provincial Health Department and published by DenPost shows that of the 8.515 cases of hemorrhagic fever (Dengue Fever – DBD) occurring on the Island between January and July 2015, with 10 of the 23 fatalities occurring in Denpasar.

Dr. Gede Wira Sunerta of the Provincial Health Office said the highest number of DBD cases occurred in Gianyar (1,725), followed by Buleleng (1,626), Badung (1,565), Denpasar (1,349), Tabanan (694), Karangasem (649), Klungkung (341). Jembrana (319) and Bangli (247).

Of the 23 recorded deaths, the highest number were in Denpasar (10), Gianyar (6), Badung (5) and Buleleng (2). There were no recorded fatalities connected to DBD in the other regencies of Bali.

Wira Sunerta said delayed treatment of DBD sufferers is a major cause of fatalities. “Those suffering from DBD usually experience high body temperatures for 1-3 days, with body temperature declining on day 4-5, and rising again on day 6-7. It is this last period that is the most dangerous. Most people do not understand and think that a high temperature on day 6-7 is of little concern with no treatment undertaken. But, in fact, it is the high fever on day 6-7 that is most dangerous,” he explained.

Bali Health officials remind that prevention of DBD is the best course of treatment. This can be done by cleaning standing water pools, filling in puddles of water and keeping areas free of junk where water can accumulate.

For people with ponds the Health department the cultivation of fish in the ponds who will eat any mosquitoes capable of spreading DBD.

Other prevention tactics include the use of insect repellants, mosquito nets over beds, bug screens on windows and doors and other means to keep mosquitoes away from human populations.

Fogging, warns Wira Sunerta, is of limited effectiveness and it only kills adult mosquitoes with unhatched mosquito eggs are unaffected.

Uncertain weather conditions and intermittent rain patterns are blamed for large mosquito population and the resulting increase in DBD cases.


Reclaiming our Senses
Minister Pudjiastuti: Her Ministry Has Yet to Issue a Recommendation for the Benoa Bay Reclamation

Indonesia’s colorful and outspoken Minister of the Seas and Fisheries, Susi Pudjiastuti, publicly submitted her opinion on Bali’s controversial Benoa Bay reclamation project speaking at a forum discussing the conservation and protection of Indonesia’s ocean resources.

In her remarks delivered in Bali on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, Minister Pudjiastuti said that reclamation of shoreline areas for property development, new aqua culture projects or other purposes is permissible, but only after carefully examining the surrounding eco-system and taking into consideration the consequences on the carrying capacity of nature.

Continuing, Susi continued: “None of this is a problem, providing we note that if reclamation is changing the function of an area, how will we replace that function elsewhere? Reclamation in Jakarta, for example, will make flooding worse in the City without the rehabilitation of the area’s rivers. The Government needs to prepare a well-developed plan on where the displaced water will go. The problem: the reclamation of 1,000 hectare of water basin, where will the 900 hectare of water volume go?”

Because of this, Susi said the “system” has to justify and prevent any cheating of the watershed area by developers. She said there can be no corruption of the system and also absolutely no manipulation of data. In other words, she said, every study undertaken for such projects must be useable later for auditing the environmental accountability of the final project.

“Our responsibility as State officials or private citizens is to our children and grandchildren,” cautioned the Minister.

Susi said her office’s role is to consider whether or not to issue a recommendation supporting the Benoa Bay reclamation project.

Meanwhile, environmental impact studies and other permits are issued by the Minister for the Environment and Forestry. She saw the need for various permits and recommendations from so many ministries as a basic problem. Adding: “In fact, whose job will it become to be the policeman to make sure that the reclamation project is in accordance with the principles safeguarding the ecosystem? This is a new problem. Reclamation can take place but if it fails to control water distribution and carrying capacity, flooding will be the result.”

The Minister warned that Bali has already lost 70% of its mangrove forests. Therefore the environmental impact of any reclamation project must be carefully studied and plans for water displacement taken into consideration.

Acknowledging widespread opposition to the reclamation of Benoa Bay by the citizens of Bali, Susi said she is waiting to review an environmental impact study to be issued by the Minister for the Environment. Moreover, researchers from Minister Suzi’s own staff are currently carrying out their own studies.

She said no permit would be issued from her office for the project before the environmental impact study is reviewed.


Before Mountain Blew
Bali by the Numbers: June Foreign Arrivals to Bali up 8.9%

Official arrival statistics for the month of June 2015 record 359,945 foreign tourist arrivals – a total 8.9% ahead of the 330,396 recorded in June 2015.

Seen on a cumulative basis, Bali has welcomed 1,915,692 foreign visitors during the first six months of the year or 10.87% more than the 1,727,875 who came in June 2014.

Assuming Bali is able to sustain a 10.87% growth rate through the end of 2015, the Island will end the year with slightly more than 4.15 million foreign visitors.

Not contemplated in the statistical review are the effects of airport closure and cancelled flights that commenced in July due to the continuing eruption of Mt. Raung in East Java.

Major Markets to Bali

Australia – OZ remains the largest inbound market to Bali claiming a 25.28% market share of all foreign arrivals and totaling 93,519 in June or 8.37% more than June 2014. Year-on-year for the first six months of the year, Bali arrivals are up 8.63% when compared to the first half of 2014.

Look for Australian arrivals to be adversely affected in July and August due to flight disruptions due to the explosion of Mt. Raung in East Java.

People’s Republic of China – The Mainland Chinese remains strong and secure as Bali’s second largest group of foreign visitors and Bali’s fastest growing source of overseas tourists.

Staying Above it All in Bali
Bali Adventure Tour Launches Helicopter Tours from it Central-Bali Base

On Wednesday, August 5, 2015 Bali Adventure Tours held a party for friends, agents and the press at the Bali Elephant Park in Taro, Central Bali to mark the inauguration of their new Helicopter Sky Tours, Air charters and air transfers in Bali.

Using their new and sophisticated Eurocopter B2 helicopter capable of carrying six passengers, the VIP helicopter is fully air-conditioned, outfitted with luxury leather seating and state-of-the-art internal and internal camera systems to record the Bali Sky Adventure Tour experience to share with friends after their Bali holiday is over.

Based in the very heart of Bali, the helicopter dramatically reduces positioning time and cost from take-off to being in position above Bali’s majestic volcanoes. As a result, a half-hour flight will allow passengers to view the Mount Batur volcano only minutes after lift-off.

Also available are customized adventure flights, airport-hotel and interisland transfers, luxury charter flights, medical evacuations, aerial photography and filming assignments, and an aerial-banner advertising program.

However, not everyone is completely thrilled with the new helicopter service operating from the Bali Elephant Park in Taro. As shown on Balidisocvery.com, Eli, who originates from South Sumatra, was visibly dismayed and upset to learn that weight restrictions do apply for those wanting to join a Bali Adventure Sky Tour.
