When Bali Discovery Tours published the Bali MICE Guide 2003 as part of our efforts to increase the meeting, incentive, conference and exhibition (MICE) market to Bali, our editor purchased an image from one of Bali's leading image libraries to grace our cover
Until recently, the name of the young man in Balinese dress on this year's edition of Bali's only comprehensive guide to meetings and conferences was something of a mystery. Prompted by numerous enquiries regarding our cover model's identity from readers around the world, we set about a "reverse search" in order to find out who exactly was the person depicted on our cover.
Meet Made Suparrtha
Our search eventually led us to the Novotel Coralia Benoa Bali where we discovered out cover-boy, Made Supartha, working as a waiter at "Coco's" beachside restaurant.
A 25 year-old young man who hails from Singaraja, on Bali's North Coast, Made Supartha has worked as waiter for the past 3 years at the popular Tanjung Benoa Resort while also pursuing his interest as a professional dancer. Photographed for our cover in one of his dance costumes, Supartha is well known for his rendition of the Oleg Tamblingan and physically challenging Kebyar Duduk dances. Possessing a dance repertoire that is truly international, Supartha performs regularly in special programs prepared by his hotel for their guests, including a special Tahitian dance performance.
