A member of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), Ketut Robin represented Bali in the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR-RI) and as Vice-Mayor of Denpasar from 200-2003.

Such was Bapak Ketut's love of the City that he relentlessly lobbied his colleagues in the local tourism industry to include and promote Denpasar City Tours ion the tours offered to visitors to Bali.

A life long resident of downtown Denpasar, Ketut Robin passed away surrounded by his family at his home in Banjar Gemeh after a long battle with cancer. A ritual bathing nyiramin of Ketut Robinís remains is scheduled for Saturday, May 28, 2006 with the cremation the following day.
