The Pause that Refreshes

Indonesia VP Jusuf Kalla Picks Bali for Christmas Holiday Break with his Family.

(12/24/2007) Indonesia's hard working President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Vice-President Jusuf Kalla are using the Christmas holidays for some much needed rest and relaxation; recharging their batteries for the busy year to come.

President Yudhoyono will head for the Presidential palace at Cipanas, outside Bogor in West Java, for a few days of R&R. Meanwhile Indonesia's No. 2 will be booking into Bali's [The Samaya] where the VP and his family have reserved 7 villa units for the Christmas holidays.

In commenting on the Bali holidays for the Vice-President, Press Secretary Muchlis Hasyim told Kompas that this was the first time in three years since assuming office that Kalla will be able to relax with his family. In quoting the VP, Muchlis said, "Humans need balance with aspects that are relaxed and fresh to allow them to once again become productive and innovative."

Even when on holiday, both the President and Vice President travel with essential support staff in order to stay informed on developments and be in a position to respond to any sudden national developments.

The hotel chosen by the Vice President's party is located on Kerobokan Beach, near Bali's popular "Eats Street."

The VP's party checked into the Resort on Friday, December 21, 2007 and is expected to stay at the boutique villa property through December 24, 2007.
