Amnaya Resort Kuta Launched in Bali
Former Alaya Resort Kuta Transformed and Rebranded as Amnaya Resort Kuta

Opened as the Alaya Resort Kuta in 2016, the 116-room hotel located on a quiet cul-de-sac of Jalan Kartika Plaza in Bali’s busy South Kuta precinct has been rebranded as the Amnaya Resort Kuta, effective September 1, 2017.

The change in brand and management was marked with a traditional “nasi tumpeng” ceremony held on September 1, 2017, (shown) attended by (left to right) Jeffrey Wibisono, general manager; Halim Soetanto, director; Suhartati Ting, director; and Made Aryana, the corporate general manager.

Emergency Ascent
Singaporean Tourist Dies While Diving at Padang Bai, East Bali

A Singaporean tourist, Dr. Wong Yu Yi (48), has drowned while diving near the Bloo Lagoon at Padang Bai in East Bali.

Balipost.com reports the Singaporean medical practitioner drowned on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

Eyewitnesses say that Wong lost consciousness while diving and was rushed to the nearby Penta Medika Clinic in Candidasa but expired in the ambulance on the way to the medical center.

Wong was diving with dive-guide Nyoman Aristawan (29) and two friends. The group of divers entered the water in front of the Candi Cottage Sengkidu shortly after 9:00 am and swam towards the area in front of the Bloo Lagoon Resort. During the course of the dive, Wong signaled to the dive guide that she wanted to surface and Aristawan immediately accompanied the Singaporean woman to the surface. When the two surfaced, Wong was already unconscious.

Using a local speedboat, Wong was brought to shore and transported to the medical clinic where the doctor on duty declared the victim dead-on-arrival.

The Straits Times reports that an autopsy performed on the woman indicate death was due to decompression sickness.


Conduct Unbecoming a Colonial
Angry Villagers Demand Two Dutchmen Be Sentenced to Prison and Deported for Assaulting Local Residents in East Bali.

A 74-year-old Dutch resident living in Karangasem and his 17-year-old son were taken into custody by police at the Abang, Karangasem police precinct.

The two men, Bernardus C. Hock Alexander (74) and Constantine Alexander (17), were arrested in a reported assault on two neighbors living near the Dutchman’s Villa Pondok Laut located at Purwekerti Village.

According to NusaBali, the attack took place on Monday afternoon, September 4, 2017, when the father-son team was said to have attacked another father-son team hailing from the surrounding Balinese community.

The two Balinese men injured in the alleged assault were I Wayan Sudarma Alit (41) and his son I Gede Sudarmayasa (19) from Banjar Lebah. Villagers told polcie the men suffered facial and body wounds in the altercation that took place on Jalan Raya Banjar, Amed in front of the Villa Pondok Laut that has been the home to the two Dutchmen for a number of years.

Police say the Balinese men were moving bamboo down the road for use in repairs to their home when the younger Dutchman verbally challenged them and began shoving his neighbors. The elder Dutchmen was said to have then joined the fray, beating the Balinese men who work as fishermen.

After delivering their beating, the Dutchmen reportedly returned to their villa only to re-emerge moments later carrying wooden clubs to do battle with the villagers.

Local villagers, incited by the aggression of the foreigners living in their community, formed a large group on the road in front of the villa. Fortunately, the arrival of police, led by the head of the Abang police precinct, I Nyoman Sugita Yasa, managed to disperse the angry crowd by taking the two Dutchmen into protective custody.

Investigating the incident and interviewing the Dutchmen, police later determined charges of assault would be filed against the foreigners under a section of the criminal code that carries a maximum penalty of 5 years and 6 months in prison. The older Dutchman was held by police on pending criminal charges, while his son, still a minor under Indonesian law, was returned to the care of his Indonesian Mother.

Police said the two Dutchmen had a reputation for precipitating public unrest via angry complaints about their Balinese neighbors. Wayan Sudarma, the victim of the attack, said past angry complaints were made for matters as inconsequential as the sound of a crying baby, smoke caused by burning wood for fuel, and the noise of motorbikes passing in front of their villa.

Sudarma told police that the presence of the Dutch residents was a continuing cause of unrest in the local community.

Meanwhile, Constantine Alexander admitted he has often complained about his neighbor playing amplified music from morning to night. The Dutch teenager told police that the Balinese men initiated the attack and he reacted, instinctually using skills acquired during advanced Karate training.

Constantine, who was born and riased in Bali, is fluent in English, Dutch, Balinese and Indonesian.

Bernardus C. Hock Alexander told police he had complained “hundreds of times” without success about the loud amplified music emanating from Wayan Sudarma’s nearby dwelling.

Meanwhile, Sudarma told police that because of his wounds he is still not fit to go to sea in search of fish.

A subsequent report from Beritabali.com reports that villagers are calling for the maximum criminal penalty to be imposed on the two foreigners, that their villa be closed, and once their sentences are served the Father and Son be deported from Indonesia.

I Wayan Suanda, the village chief (Kelian) of the local banjar said, “In the name of the local citizens, I hope the perpetrators will be punished to the full extent of the law, that their villa be closed, and, after finishing their sentences, they be deported back to their home country.”

Suanda accompanied by community leaders and some 116 village representatives delivered these demands from the village in a meeting with the head of the Abang Police Precinct held on Tuesday, September 5, 2017.

The local police chief told the public that the criminal charges were being processed according to standard operating procedures to be turned over to prosecutors in due course.

The decision to deport the two men was a matter at the discretion of immigration authorities, said Sugita.

Accepting that the two men were no longer welcomed in the community, the Police Precinct Chief secured promises from community leaders that they would respect the law and would refrain from any retaliatory attack on the villa owned by the Dutchman’s Indonesian wife.

Bali Governor Wants Computerized E-learning Introduced at Island’s High Schools

The State News Agency Antara reports that Governor Made Mangku Pastika has declared his wish that Profefessional High Schools (SMK) in Bali offer e-learning or computer-based study to keep in step with the ongoing information and technology revolution.

The Governor said that an e-learning system provide efficiencies in time and expense. Adding: “With this e-learning system will accelerate the work of teachers and allow students to follow lessons and practice wherever they may be, while reducing the use of paper and writing tools.”

Pastika also saw a role for computer learning in the training and selection of civil servants.

The Governor also applauded the demonstrated success of e-learning at the elite Bali Mandara High School that was introduced in 2015.

The State News Agency Antara reports that the Secretary General of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Swami Vigyananan, met the Governor in Bali on Thursday, September 7, 2017, to personally invite Pastika’s participation at the Chicago conference.

Province Working to Increase Tourist Visits to Batur Volcanic Museum at Kintamani

The State News Agency Antara reports that foreign tourists dominate visitors to the Batur Volcanic Museum (Museum Gunungapi Batur) at Kintamani, Bangli Regency, saying the desire of domestic tourists to visit the educational center on volcanoes is only a fraction of the interest shown by foreign tourists.

The Museum coordinator, Desak Made Andariyani said on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, said: “The majority who visit the museum are foreigners. Domestic tourists are seldom interested, but, in fact, our desire is to become an educational center on volcanoes for both locals and foreigners.”

Operated by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the Museum receives between 40 – 100 international visitors each day.

Meanwhile, domestic tourists are approximately half this number.

To increase visits by domestic visitors, the Provincial Government invited members of the press to visit the Museum on Tuesday, September 5, 2017.

The Museum’s management has also made admission to the Museum free-of-charge to encourage more visitors.

The Museum covers 1.09 hectares with a number of interactive displays on the Batur volcano and volcanoes in general.

Closed Until Seasonal Winds Subside
Blow Hole at Nusa Dua Closed Temporarily as a Safety Precaution

Balipost.com reports that for most of the past month the Water Blow Hole located at the southernmost tip of Nusa Dua in Bali has been closed to the public by the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) as a safety precaution necessitated by high waves striking the shoreline.

The Water Blow Hole is a popular “selfie” location for tourist visitors eager to catch the “natural geyser” resulting when waves strike the shore sending a vertical stream of water into the air.

In addition to closing the gate leading to the Water Blow Hole, security officials have also erected a bamboo fence and placed a notice warning the public not to approach the area. The poster advises that the Water Blow Hole has been temporarily closed due to high waves, that no lifeguards are on duty in the area, and those visiting the area do so at their own risk.

Security staff working at the location says that the area will be reopened to the public once the strong winds blowing during Bali’s traditional “kite season” subside.

The Managing Director of ITDC, Wayan Karioka, confirmed the closure as a public safety measure, saying the gate will be opened from time to time when conditions permit.

In the recent past, tourists visiting the Water Blow Hole have suffered minor injuries resulting being struck by incoming waves. Karioka said the ITDC was working with insurers to put coverage in place for tourist visitors to the area and discussing plans to put rescue personnel on standby along that stretch of beach beginning in November 2017.

Province to Facilitate One Thousand Poor Balinese Students Seeking Employment in the Cruise Industry in 2018

In an effort to break the cycle of poverty, the Provincial Government of Bali plans to facilitate for 1,000 professional high schools (SMK) graduates to secure jobs on cruise ships.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Governor Made Mangku Pastika said: “The Government will take responsibility for all costs connected with passports, visa issuance, and airline ticket, You will not need to think about these costs that will be paid 100% (by the government).”

Pastika’s comments were made during a series of visits to SMKs in Singaraja, North Bali.

The Governor said the Province has allocated the funds to facilitate 1,000 graduates from poor economic circumstance to be able to work on cruise ships.

Accordingly, the Governor has asked profession high schools to seriously prepare their students and ensure they have the competence to work in the cruise industry.

“I asked that the schools survey the students from the lower economic sector. If these poor students desire to work on cruise ships, focus their education (in this direction). Also, enhance their ability to speak English in order that they compete for jobs on cruise ships,” explained Pastika.

The Governor also called on SMK high schools with open areas of land to build accommodation for teachers and student living at a distance from the SMK.

Pastika said SMKs must adjust their curriculum to meet market demand. “Don't let student graduating from SMK add to the unemployment totals. We must rationalize and focus on disciplines of expertise demanded by the marketplace,” said the Governor.

Keep it Simple and Competitive
President Widodo Visits Bali to Call for Deregulation and Simplification of the Bureaucracy

During his most recent visit to Bali, Indonesian President Joko Widodo touched briefly on the highly divisive issue of the reclamation of Benoa Bay.

As reported by Balipost.com, while the President resisted calls from ForBALI to simply revoke Presidential Decree No. 51 of 2014 hurriedly issued by then President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono that changed large areas of Benoa Bay from a protected nature reserve to a commercial development area to be used by Indonesian businessman Tommy Winata in creating an entertainment and tourism complex on reclaimed land.

President Widodo, however, did give a signal on where stands, saying that investment must operate in harmony with the environment. The President said: “I know (about the reclamation of Benoa). I know all about it. Once again, the economy and the environment must be synchronized.”

The President was speaking at a National meeting of Notaries held at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center on Friday, September 8, 2017.

Pressed and asked if would revoke Presidential Decision Number 51, Joko Widodo chose to make no reply as he quickly left the Convention Center, pausing along the way to make photographs with delegates attending the Notarial Conference.

Reforming Indonesia's Bureacracy

Earlier, in comments addressed to the notaries, Joko Widodo underlined his commitment to undertake a major reformation of laws, regulations and administrative practice in order to enhance the ease of doing business in Indonesia. In the current year, Indonesia is placed at 91 in a World Bank report ranking the ease of doing business. This is a considerable improvement from a ranking at 120 in 2014; 114 in 2015; and 106 in 2016.

Not satisfied to be ranked at 91, President Widodo is targeting that Indonesia achieves a worldwide ranking of 40.

But, again, the President reminded that the environment and social aspects of development can't be ignored. Adding: “Everything must run in a balanced way. The economy advances, but the environment cannot be ignored. That’s the principle.”

Joko Widodo is determined that efficiency and the ease of doing business will be aided by reducing the processing time of permits and eliminating local regulations that impede investment.

It has been calculated that there are some 42,000 local regulations that are often confusing and contradictory, making investment problematic. The President wants to reform the system and eliminate regulations that are inimical to new investment. Without improvement, he warns, Indonesia will lose out to competing countries.


Additional Charges Don’t Apply
Indonesian Banks Warn It’s Illegal to for Merchants to Apply Credit Card Surcharges in Indonesia

CNN Indonesia reports that PT Bank Central Asia (Bank BCA) is emphasizing merchants using credit card accounts must not make any additional charge to cover the cost of credit card commissions and that these supplemental credit charges levied by merchants is expressively forbidden in the agreements in place between the bank and the merchant.

Santoso, a BCA director, said on Friday, September 8, 2017: “Any amount of surcharge, be it 2.5% or 4% we do not accept if it's a BCA credit card used in Electronic Data Capture (EDA) machine used by our bank or another bank. There is no such charge.”

Santoso urged credit card holders to become more critical and refuse any credit card transaction where an additional credit card usage fee is sought. When such charges are sought, he urged that the offending merchant be reported immediately to the bank.

“We will warn merchants and may even terminate our agreement with those who apply a credit card surcharge. But, we need a report from the cardholder in order to detect such practice.

A similar sentiment was sounded by the CEO of PT Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI), Achmad Baiquni. He warned merchants from even charging an additional 1% for any transactions involving credit or debit card.

The prohibition against these additional charges is specifically listed in the merchant agreement between the Bank and the merchant. Baiquini said his office would punish any merchant reported to be applying the additional charge in credit card transactions.

Many businesses charged 3% for sales transactions involving the use of a credit card. These charges, however, were outlawed by Bank Indonesia since 2011 via Bank Indonesia Regulation 11/11/PBI/2009 controlling credit card transactions.

Few consumers are aware of the rule and often still charge 3% more for payment by credit card.

Santoso said the application of additional charges for using credit cards is forbidden.

Minimum Transaction Charges Don’t Apply.

Merchants are also forbidden from stipulating minimum amounts to apply when using a credit card. The banks set no such minimums and efforts to do this by merchants are in direct opposition to Government programs to move towards a cashless society.

Santoso added: “At BCA we support a cashless society. It is therefore impossible that we would limit transactions.” 


A Peaceful Neighborhood Shattered
Murder Suspected in Death of Elderly Japanese Couple in Jimbaran, South Bali

A Japanese couple retired in Bali has been found dead in the burnt out rubble of their rented residence at Puri Gading, Jimbaran in South Bali.

Nurio Matsubasa (76) and his wife Hiroko Matsuba (70) were discovered on the second floor of their home on Monday, September 4, 2017, in a burnt out bedroom.

NusaBali said police suspect homicide in the death of the couple that gave Japanese speaking and writing lessons from their home. A preliminary forensic inspection revealed stab and heavy blows were inflicted on the couple in the course of their murder, with police theorizing that the home was set on fire to conceal the identity of the murderer or murderers.

The bodies of the couple were discovered by an Indonesian man, Abdul Salman (48), said to be considered an adopted son of the Japanese pensioners. Salman came to the house at 11:00 am to invite the couple to lunch when their two hand phones were not reachable.

When Salman arrived at the house the front gate was locked. When the man saw smoke flowing from the second-floor bedroom, Abdul raised the alarm, screaming for help from neighbors. Members of the local banjar and police quickly responded to the scene.

After police arrived at the house at 11:30 am, Abdul Salman broke down the front door to the house and then, in the company of police, found the Japanese couple's burnt corpses in their upstairs bedroom. The husband, Nurio Matsubasa, was found under the bed while his wife, Hiroko, was lying on the bed. Both bodies were badly burnt and the faces of the couple were no longer recognizable.

At the crime scene, police found the couple’s car with the doors and gas cover open.

Police theorize that whoever murdered the Japanese couple were individuals known to the victims.

Police are interviewing neighbors and possible witnesses, including Abdul Salman, a servant, driver and a close friend.

Police said evidence of several separate fires were found on both floors of the dwelling were found.

A neighbor told police of the presence of a man carrying a flashlight on Sunday, September 3, the night before the couple’s bodies were discovered.

RIP: John Fawcett 1932 – 2017
Australian Heading Community Project that has Restored Sight to Tens of Thousands of Indonesians Dies in Perth.

A legend in his adopted home of Bali where he had a positive impact on the lives of thousands through his sight-restoring work, Australian John Fawcett has died in Australia at age 85.

Working for a period as a ceramicist and a college administrator, Fawcett moved to Bali in 1983, ostensibly to recover from a medical condition that hospitalized him for three years.

Shortly after his arrival, Fawcett, with the assistance of Rotary Australia, set up a cleft lip and cleft palate program in 1989 followed by a revolutionary Mobile Eye Clinic that restored sight through cataract surgery to people living in remote villages starting in 1991

Park Your Private Jet in East Java
Banyuwangi Airport Undergoing Upgrades to Serve as ‘Parking Area’ for VIP Aircraft Attending World Bank – International Monetary Fund Meeting in Bali in October 2018

Kompas.com reports that the Blimbingsari Airport in Banyuwangi, East Java will be used as one of the “parking spaces” for parking overnight the VIP aircraft carrying officials attending the Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank 2018 in Bali.

Tarmac space for idle aircraft at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport, although recently expanded, is still insufficient for the large number of private jets expected during the WB-IMF meeting.

The plans to park visiting VIP aircraft in Banyuwangi were announced by the Director of Aviation Navigation from the Ministry of Transportation, Yudhi Sari Sitompul.

Yudhi told the press while attending the launch programs for an inauguration of a Garuda flight from Jakarta to Banyuwangi o Friday, September 9, 2017: “Banyuwangi is the airport to be used for parking aircraft used to transport heads of state attending the IMF-WB. I understand that 130 heads of state will attend this event.”

Yudi says work continues to enhance the capacity of Blimbingsari Airport in Banyuwangi, including extending the length of the airport from 2,250-meters to 2,500 meters. Work will also be undertaken to widen the runways from 30-meters to 45-meters. Moreover, teinforcement of the runway will strengthen the pavement classification number to 57.

The new Lombok International Airport will also be used to accommodate aircraft attending the IMF-WB conference scheduled for October 12-14, 2018.

RIP: I Nyoman Gunarsa 1943-2017
Renowned Indonesian Contemporary Art, Educator, and Art Curator Nyoman Gunarsa Dies at 74

Bali mourns the loss of one of its most illustrious sons with the death of I Nyoman Gunarsa.

A tireless promoter of Balinese art, Gunarsa received his formal training at the Academy of Indonesian Fine Arts (ASRI) in Yogyakarta where he also later taught. His paintings form part of important private and museum collections around the globe and are also prominently featured at Museum Seni Lukis Kontemporer in Klungkung that Gunarsa founded in 1989.

Born in Klungkung on April 15, 1943, Gunarsa’s work depicts the daily life of the Balinese people or are alternatively inspired by Hindu Dharma epic. He died at Sanglah General Hospital’s intensive care unit on Sunday morning, September 10, 2017. His body is in repose at Jalan Raya Banda No.1, Takmung, Angkan, Klungkung pending the selection of an auspicious day for a cremation ceremony.

Spontaneous, lyrical and jocular described both the man and his art. His subjects can be drawn from traditional dance, Balinese music, religious ritual or the natural environment.

We recall attending an exhibition some years ago at the a Tony Raka Gallery in Ubud where Gunarsa stopped to look at a comically executed canvas by a young artist. After looking at the painting in silence for an extended period, Gunarsa began to laugh; a quiet chuckle escalating to a long burst of uncontrollable laughter that went on for minutes and brought the entire gallery to a standstill. The artist who produced the work couldn’t have been happier.

Gunarsa’s early expressionist period was heavily influenced by Wayang Kulit (shadow puppet) characters. The mythical stories learned while growing up in a Balinese village launched an instinctual approach to painting that could see an entire canvas filled to artistic perfection in little more than an hour. Arms flailing before a canvas, Gunarsa was likened by some to a musical conductor, earning him the "Maestro" moniker that was his for the rest of his life. Bold strokes delivered with astounding fluidity results in works that somehow manage to blend Bali’s ancient Abu Aringgit traditions with a form that remains unfailingly contemporary.

“I paint lines like I sing; I apply colors like I dance,” explains Gunarsa.

Working in both oil and water colors, to watch Nyoman Gunarsa was akin to watching a "maestro" or, perhaps, an accomplished Balinese dancer perform. The canvas was his stage and his strokes dance movements. His paintings epitomize absolute freedom of subject, theme, color, and stroke.

Gunarsa described his method, saying: “Through my swipes of color and my unordered lines the basic element of my work, which is rhythm, is revealed.”

In the 1970s, Nyoman Gunarsa established, together with a number of Balinese artists working in Central Java, the Sangar Dewata Indonesia. The Sanggar's membership included the likes of Gunarsa, Made Wianta, Pande Supada, and Wayan Sikka. Caught between conflicting modernist and realist waves then sweeping through the Indonesian art scene, the Balinese artists gathered together in the Sanggar Dewata Indonesia worked to create their own artistic tradition that incorporated Balinese symbols and themes.

Later, in 1989, Gunarsa established the Museum Seni Lukis Kontemporer Indonesia Nyoman Gunarsa (The Nyoman Gunarsa Museum of Contemporary Art) in Yogyakarta. This was followed by the opening of the Museum Seni Lukis Klasik Bali (Bali Museum of Classical Painting) in Klungkung, Bali in 1990.

In 1998 Gunarsa suffered the first of several strokes that transformed his work and artistic vision. This period and the long convalescence was described by Gunarsa as “Moksa” – a Sanskrit term which means “release” from the reoccurring cycle of pain and death embodied in earth-bound reincarnation. His near brush with death liberated and enlightened Gunarsa, leaving a highly productive artist who worked from a spiritual plane somewhere between reality and non-reality, between dream and flight. This was a man and artists at home with his place in the universe painting happily against the beauty of nature provided by his Klungkung, East Bali home.

Nyoman Gunarsa has bid farewell to his beloved Bali and his family, hopefully, released via Moksa from the trials and tribulations of continual saṃsāra -the cycle of death and rebirth, leaving a soul now dwelling in a perfect state of emancipation, liberation, and release.
