Craig Carterís Sailing Yacht ĎIndianí Wins Line Honors in Fremantle to Bali Race

Line honors in the 2015 Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race went to “Indian” – a Carkeek 47 captained by Craig Carter that completed the 1,440 nautical mile race in 6 days and 18 hours.

Mild winds and opposing currents made the final moments of the race a tough slog for Carter and his crew who bemoaned tidal currents that actually saw the yacht drifting backwards for six hours waiting for improving winds and tides to make the final dash to Bali’s Benoa harbor.

“Indian” crossed the finish line at 4 a.m. Monday, May 25.

The Indonesia Ministry of Tourism dubbed this years races the Wonderful Fremantle to Indonesia Yacht Race.

Beritabali.com reports that a total of 17 sailing yachts crossed the finish line in Bali.


Food, Glorious Food in the Hills of Bali
Ubud Food Festival Premieres June 5-7, 2015

The inaugural Ubud Food Festival will be held June 5-7, 2015 attended by a number of celebrity chefs from Indonesia and abroad participating in a number of workshops and master classes.
 
The brainchild of the creators of the world-renowned Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF), the Ubud Food Festival (UFF) will be a gathering of Indonesia’s culinary greats, international chefs bringing their unique style of food-fusion to the archipelago. 

The program will feature a range of ticketed and free events, spanning cooking demonstrations, workshops, food forums, markets, food tours, wine tastings, film screenings and much more.
 
Heading the line-up of cooking greats are pioneering Indonesian cookery author Sri Owen; TV personalities Bara Pattiradjawane and Bondan Winarno, Rahung Nasution; and culinary expert William Wongso.
 
Representing the dynamic Bali food scene are Room4Dessert’s Will Goldfarb, Mozaic’s Chris Salans and Locavore’s Eelke Plasmeijer, El Bulli-trained chef Kevin Cherkas of Cuca, as well as some of island’s leading culinary establishments including Hujan Locale, Bridges and Fivelements.
 
From the region and further afield, the UFF will also host culinary heavyweights working in Southeast Asia and the globe. With their restaurants recently named among Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Australian BBQ fanatic Dave Pynt and former head-chef of Melbourne’s Vue de Monde Ryan Clift (supported by bridges) will be bringing their expertise to the table.  Celebrated pastry chefs, Janice Wong and Malaysia’s acclaimed Chef Wan are also slated to appear in Ubud.
 
Founder and Director of the UFF, Janet DeNeefe, said she is delighted to finally be bringing the long-awaited Festival to Indonesia, which she hopes  will shine a spotlight on the incredible diversity and richness of cuisine and culture the country has to offer. “We’ve been wanting to launch a food festival for even longer than we’ve been running the UWRF, which celebrates its 12th birthday this year. I can’t wait to see the amazing talent of the culinary community come to life and take form.”
 
DeNeefe says it’s not just about tasting different cuisines, however, but understanding food in all its forms, and the journey from the supplier to the plate. Adding: “As well as just showcasing great food, the UFF is about taking a journey, to understand its past, present and future. We also want to strengthen linkages within the local and international culinary community, cementing Indonesia as one of the best food destinations in the world.”
 
The program will take place at two main venues in Ubud, Bali: Indus Restaurant and Taman Baca, both located on Jl. Raya Sanggingan in Ubud.

Food: As Mother Taught us How to Cook
Four Seasons Sayan Launches French Bistro Concept on the Banks of the Ayung River in Ubud, Bali

Bali has long been one of Asia's most vibrant dining destinations, teeming with an endless selection of local food kiosks or 'warung,' chic cafes and first-class cuisine presented from every corner of the globe. The latest culinary destination of note sits on the banks of the Ayung River, a rustic locale totally apropos to the farm-to-table French Bistro concept at the scenic Riverside Cafe, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan.

With the gurgling of the fast-flowing Ayung River serenading diners and shaded by strands of palm and banyan trees, the al-fresco dining area wraps around the multi-tiered swimming pool. In this uniquely Balinese setting, Chef Jocelyn Argaud employs traditional French techniques, cast-iron pots and wood-fire ovens to present his favorite dishes passed down by his mother and grandmother. Dating from his childhood in Lyon to his appointment as chef to the Qatari Royal Palace and his arrival in Bali’s cultural and artistic center of Ubud, Jocelyn's family cuisine has withstood the test of time and distance, giving little quarter to the culinary fads and momentary trends that wither and fade in the heat of the kitchen.

Jocelyn honors the earthy flavors and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of Maman Claudette's home cooking with signature dishes like Chicken 'Basquaise' baked in a cast-iron pot with bell peppers, quail eggs and smoked duck jus; wood-fired ‘Tomato Tart Maman Claudette's' with Caciotta cheese, Dijon mustard, fresh oregano and arugula; and Mushroom Ravioli with goat's cheese shavings and sauce 'riche'.  A light-as-a-feather wood-fired Pear Tart sounds a decrescendo dessert offering. Diners have the option of ordering a la carte or trying a “Maman knows best” set menu, starting from Rp 255, 000++  (US$21) for two courses.

"The launch of Riverside's new dinner concept is the highlight of my career to-date as a chef," said Jocelyn. "My mother was the reason I was inspired to become a chef in the first place, and now I am sharing the love and passion for her food, with our guests. It is very close to my heart."

The restaurant, previously open only for lunch is now open for both lunch and dinner.
 
"The new concept at Riverside is unique in both the location and the traditional French cooking style, while using local Balinese ingredients," said Uday Rao, General Manager of Four Seasons Resorts Bali. "We wanted to do something completely different to what already existed in Bali, yet complementary to the earthy, river-front setting of the restaurant in the Ubud highlands."

The use of local ingredients -- many sourced from the resort's own vegetable and herb gardens -- ensure the freshest produce is presented, often within hours of being handpicked. The emphasis is on a 'farm-to-table' approach, with relaxed riverfront dining and the world-class touch of Four Seasons service.

A Coup of Sorts for Baliís Ku De Ta
Singapore Nightclub Told to End Use of Ku De Ta Branding Born in Bali

The Straits Times reports that the internationally known Ku De Ta nightclub located on the 57th floor of the iconic Marina Bay Sands SkyPark (MBS) may soon be looking to change its name.
 
After a multi-year struggle in the Singapore Courts, the Court of Appeals has told L Capital Investments, who control the Singapore venue on behalf of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, to stop using the Ku De Ta trademark that the court has decided belongs to the Bali-base plaintiffs following a five-year legal battle started in 2010.
 
A highly lucrative venture, the Ku De Ta Singapore nightspot generated revenues of US$32 million in 2014.
 
In November 2013, the Singapore Lower Court ruled that the challenge by the Bali-based Ku De Ta operator charging illegal use of the Ku De Ta trade mark in Singapore was dismissed as being without legal merit.
 
In December 2014, Singapore’s Chief Justice reversed the earlier ruling, declaring that Nine Squares, a company formed by Australian Arthur Chondros, did not own the Ku De Ta trademark and acted illegally in granting trademark right to Hong Kong businessman Chris Au to use the mark in Singapore and who, in turn, assigned those rights to the Singapore venture.
 
The latest decision seems certain to have far-reaching implications for the Singapore business and its investors, both past and present. The Chief justice has ordered Chandros to transfer all trademark registrations for Ku De Ta to the Balinese plaintiffs and provide a detailed accounting of all profits made in the ventures illegally using the Ku De Ta trademark.
 
Chandros was one of the founders of the Ku De Ta Bali in 2000 but subsequently left the island and moved to Singapore to establish a venture under the same name.
 
Also complicating the legal landscape is the fact that L Capital invested in Ku De Ta Singapore in January 2014 following the initial favorable judgment by the court stating the use of the brand in Singapore was legal. That investment, however, contained legal warranties and guarantees that may now be put into effect because of the unfavorable trademark ruling.
 
It also remains what impact the Court decision will have on L Capital’s involvement in a club in Bangkok and other projects “said to be in the pipeline.”
 
The Singapore Ku De Ta has been ranked among the worlds “ten best’ entertainment venues with substantial investment in 2014 and 2015 by L Capital to enhance facilities and services.


Keeping Out of Hot Soup
Police Arrest Man Smuggling Sharksí Fins from Java to Bali

The State News Agency Antara reports that Water Police working in Jembrana, West Bali, seized hundreds of contraband sharks’ fins in the process of being smuggled from Java to Bali.

The head of the Water Police at Gilimanuk, Nyoman Wirya Sucipta, said on Thursday, May 28, 2015, “One of our officers working from Post II in the Gilimanuk Port discovered the case of smuggled sharks’ fins.”
 
176 separate sharks’ fins wrapped in plastic bags were discovered concealed in cardboard boxes.
 
Police say that a man identified at Hasan Basri from the village of Pagerungan, Sumenap, East Java was found with the contraband products in his possession.
 
Another man, the driver of a public transport vehicle Purnomo, told police that he had carried Basri and his luggage into Bali from the port of Banyuwangi, East Java destined for Denpasar, Bali.
 
Police are interrogating Basri. Meanwhile, the sharks’ fins confiscated from the man have been sent to the Natural Resource Agency in Denpasar for further investigation.

Denpasarís Failure to Compete
Bali Governor Angrily Blames Denpasar Mayoralty for Loss of Prestigious Benoa Marina Project

The anger expressed by the head of Pelindo III, the government-owned operators of Bali’s Port of Benoa, over delays by the Denpasar municipal government in granting permission for the development of marina facilities has also earned a cynical rejoinder of support from Bali’s Governor directed at the Capital city’s mayoralty.
 
Governor Pastika, as quoted by beritadewata.com, said the bureaucratic fumbling and delays of the Denpasar government resulted in a yacht marina project originally intended for Benoa to be shifted to Banyuwangi, East Java. “Because of the failure to issue the permit, some Rp. 300 billion (US$2.3 million) has been lost to Banyuwangi. This deserves the serious attention of our government in Bali,” said Pastika on Saturday, May 30, 2015.
 
Pastika used the occasion to complain that Bali is now in the habit of impeding efforts by investors to develop the Island. He cited the Bali Mandara International Hospital Project that he says remains in doubt due to the tendering process. Pastika said: “If this was not the case, Bali would already been home for the past three years to the Bali Mandara International Hospital. But, because the building permit issuance was very late, that hospital project remains in suspense.”

The Governor said the relocation of the marina project from Bali to East Java would not have happened if the Denpasar government had processed the needed permits in a timely manner. Adding: “Just imagine that sail boats and cruise vessels will park in Banyuwangi. They will number in the hundreds. At some point, many Balinese will be working in Banyuwangi because Bali will no longer be competitive with Banyuwangi. Banyuwangi will become a major competitor of Bali.”

The Governor sadly noted that the future port-of-call for hundreds of ships and yachts should have been in Bali, not Banyuwangi. But because of the Denpasar bureaucracy a golden opportunity has been lost.

Governor Pastika’s comments were made after reading various reports in the media stating that the CEO of PT Pelindo III, Djarwo Surjanto, was angered by the lack of cooperation from the Denpasar government who failed to support the Bali marina project by delaying the issuance of the needed permit.

By comparison, the regent of Banyuwangi, Abdullah Azwar Anas, stepped up and promised all support and cooperation in creating an international standard port facility, if the marina project moved to his region.

Power to the People of Bali
New North Bali Power Plant Now on Line and Producing Power for Bali-Java Power Grid

During a visit to the Steam-generating power plant in North Bali (PLTU) at Celukan Bawang, Armed Forces General Moeldoko cited the newly commissioned power station as a strategically vital facility that will assist Bali in seeking independence from power supplies from Java.
 
General Moeldoko who is the Supreme Commander of the Indonesian Armed Forces, was accompanied on his Thursday, May 28, 2015 visit by Major General Torry Djohar Banguntoro, the commander of the Udayana Military District; Agus Suradnyana the Regent of Bulelelng; Gede Supriatna, the chairman of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng); Kurniadi, chief of the Buleleng Police Precinct; and local military commander Lt. Co., Dwi Hermawan.
 
Quoted by Metrobali.com, General Moeldoko said the operation of PLTU Celukan Bawang forms part of efforts to reduce the consumption of fuel supplies, by changing from diesel driven coal-based power production.
 
In inspecting the plant Moeldoko said that the newest power generating center in Bali did not require any special security precautions, but would fall under the purview of the local military command assisted by North Bali police.
 
Meanwhile, the technical advisor at PLTU Celukan Bawang, Agus Dharmadi, confirmed the power plant was now in operation and producing 143 megawatts of power for the Bali-Java power grid. This power was emanating from Unit I at the plant that went on line in late May. Unit II, providing a further 90-megawatt, will be brought on line imminently. Unit III will come on line in July 2015 bringing to Bali a total combined additional production capacity of 426 megawatts.
 
Speaking to environmental concerns, Agus Dharmadi said the project has been built and will be operated to strict environmental standards, producing minimal smoke into the skies of North Bali.

Immigration Promises to Check Claims of 40 Foreign Workers at Sky Garden Discotheque

Fast on the heels a very public dispute over the firing of the security chief of the Sky Garden Discothèque, the Badung, Bali immigration office has become "infuriated" with the recruited of 40 foreign workers by the nightspot.
 
As reported by Radar Bali and Metrobali.com, the head of the Badung Immigration office, Tri Hernanda Resa, said his office would soon launch a sweeping action targeting the well-known nightspot.
 
Radar Bali said that Sky Garden workers had complained to immigration authorities regarding the large number of foreigners employed at the discotheque and the continuing failure of authorities to take any corrective action.
 
Flory, the recently dismissed Chief of Security at the Sky Garden said: “Until this time, there are some 40 foreigners working there. Some are in uniforms and others dress just like the guests.”

He said those I uniform are deployed to work at the bar while those in plain clothes work as observers.
 
The immigration chief for Badung feigned surprise at Flory’s report, saying: “Wow! If that is the case I will soon order my staff to survey the location. In January we checked the place and only found 7 foreign workers. And these had temporary stay permits.”

Resa said if the number of foreign workers at Sky Garden has reached 40, this would create a disparity in wages between local and foreign workers at the business.
 
The immigration officer said his office would need to investigate to ensure that guests at the Sky Garden were not mistaken for workers.
 
When reporters confronted the Regent of Badung regarding allegation of a high number of potentially illegal workers at the Sky Garden, A.A. Gede Rai merely shook his head and refused comment to the press.

PATA Bali: Ends its Hibernation?
PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter End Years of Dormancy by Electing a New Chairman

After an absence of many years, a general assembly of the Bali – Nusa Tenggara Chapter of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) was held at the offices of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) in Renon, Denpasar on Thursday, May 28, 2015.
 
The outgoing chairman of the local PATA Chapter Herdy D. Sayogha presented the financial reports and explained the dearth of chapter activities over the past many years.
 
Invited to speak to the gathering, the Past Chairman of the PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter, John M. Daniels, welcomed indications to rededicate and resume chapter activities after a lull of many years.
 
Recalling his period of service spanning the start of the new millennium, Daniels reminded the meeting that serious reference should be made to the existing by-laws of the chapter, particularly as regards issues of meeting quorums, annual general meetings and a steadfast commitment by chapter leadership to present a regular program of programs and activities of import to its members.
 
During Daniels’ chairmanship the PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter took leading roles in lobbying the government on tourism policy and conducted numerous educational seminars. This period also saw the PATA Chapter attain its highest level of membership and win several awards for excellence from PATA International.
 
Daniels urged PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter to resume compliance with its own by-laws, suggesting that its participation over the past several years as a stakeholder member in organizations such as the Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI-Bali) was without proper legal basis due to the Chapter's failure to hold annual general meetings.
 
The meeting elected I.B. Sidartha, a leading member of the Sanur tourism community, as chairman of the PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter.


Nusa Penida as Alcatraz
National Legislator Calls for Removal of Kerobokan Prison to Nusa Penida Island

A visit by Commission III from Indonesia’s House of Representatives (DPR-RI) has renewed calls for the closure and removal to a new location of Bali’s infamous Kerobokan Prison.
 
The delegation, led directly by the chairman of Commission III, Azis Samsyudin, inspected the prison and expressed their continuing concern with the condition of the penitentiary and the frequent irregularities that have occurred there,including reports on on-line prostitution connections, physical attacks, murder and a prison riot of several years ago.
 
Azis, quoted by Merdeka.com, called for the Kerobokan prison to be relocated to a new location at Nusa Penida Island in the Bali regency of Klungkung.

“At the very least, the Kerobokan prison is badly overloaded. It is home to many narcotics offenders. There is no deterrent effect. Many of the prisoners have been imprisoned there for more than two times. What’s needed is a new location on a separate island, that’s still owned by Bali – such as Nusa Penida,” said Azis on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
 
The national legislator said a relocation of the prison was made necessary because the condition of Kerobokan prison was no longer viable in a location that is in an urban area in close proximity to tourism activities.
 
Using a meeting room at the prison, the members of Commission III met with prison officials to discuss the ongoing repairs and renovations and problems of over-capacity. Questions were also asked about poor administration at Kerobokan that recently resulted in the mistaken release of a prisoner.
 
The Prison Warden told the commission of a lack of personnel and equipment in a prison housing 989 prisoners but designed to handle only 320.
 
Azis asked the Prison Warden to meet with the Governor of Bali to request a relocation of the prison and to agree to cooperate without anyone seeking to profit personally in the new prison project.

ForBali and Benoa Bay Anti-Reclamation Movement Win Rolling Stone Editorsí Choice Award

Bali’s Anti-reclamation movement has won recognition in the category of “People Power” in Rolling Stone Indonesia’s Editors’ Choice Awards announced on Friday, May 29, 2015.
 
As reported by Metrobali.com, the recognition given by Rolling Stone to ForBALI - an environmental action group opposing the reclamation and redevelopment of Benoa Bay by PT Tirta Wahana Bali International (PT TWBI) formed part of the magazine’s 10th anniversary celebration.

Rolling Stone presented the award to ForBALI and the anti-reclamation movement spanning three years that has inspired the younger generation to care for the environment and stage sophisticated protests using cultural performance in order to state their opposition.

Accepting the award on behalf of ForBALI and a number of organizations joining it in the protest was I Wayan Gendo Suardana and the Jakarta representative for Green Indonesia (WALHI).

While accepting the award, Gendo was joined on stage by a large number of ForBALI supporters demonstrating, according to Gendo, the broad-based support of the anti-reclamation movement in Bali.
 
In his acceptance speech Gendo said: “In the end, this movement that started with only tens of people, has managed to inspire our younger generation…This award belongs to everyone who is opposing the reclamation of Benoa Bay: ForBali in Lampung, Bandung, Jakarta, Klaten, Solo, East Java, Sulawesi, Kalimantan and other places, including supporters of our movement living overseas in Australia, Europe, Germany, Japan and the U.S.A.”
 
Continuing, Gendo said: “I ask everyone in attendance to assist us because we are fighting a terrible force. Without friends this movement has nothing. This is a battle for civilization. We ask you help via the social media or other media, or via artistic works – such as photos and paintings.”
 
Gendo ended his remarks by calling on President Joko Widodo to urgently revoke Presidential Decree No. 51 of 2014 authorizing the project and hurriedly issued by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in the waning days of his Presidency.

The Aquarians Have Landed
Bali Unite Ė a Massive 3-day Festival of Music, Arts, Wellness, Food and Drink on the Sandy Beaches of Karangasem July 31 Ė August 2, 2015

The black sand beach of Karangasem in East Bali will serve as the backdrop for “Bali Unite” billed by its creators as an “international music celebration.”

Scheduled for July 31 – August 2, 2015 – the three-day experience will offer a mix of international and local artists, yoga and wellness workshops, and a wide array of organic foods and drinks.

The venue for Bali Unite is the newly inaugurated 7Temples Eco Beach Complex located - a one-hour drive from the airport and a short distance from the main eastern port of Padang Bai in the regency of Karangasem.
 
Bali Unite expects to attract 20,000 music, art, and beach fans.
 
The festival begins on Friday, July 31, 2015 at 4:00 pm. On the following day, Saturday, August 1st, a full moon dance party will last run until the wee morning hours of Sunday. Sunday is scheduled as a day of family-friendly activities.
 
Reminiscent of an earlier era and Woodstock, a camping ground has been prepared with tents and sleeping bags for rent.
 
“We often say that music is a universal language because it unites people together,” says Rebecca Reijman, Bali Unite’s Indonesian music curator. “That is why Bali Unite welcomes a variety of styles of music on three separate stages: from up-tempo electronic music to alternative rock, pop, down-tempo lounge, and reggae: We have it all!”
 
The new 7Temples Complex and home to the Bali Unite Festival derives its name from the seven Hindu temples that surround the property. Festival facilities construction is already well underway, led by bamboo pioneer Amir Rabik. “The beautiful and spacious bamboo structures we are constructing are not only designed to keep our thousands of guests comfortable, but they are also fully recyclable and blend in with the 7Temples’s surrounding jungles and beaches,” comments Rabik. “We want to make sure that, in the long-term, we can achieve fully sustainable festival grounds.”
 
The organizers desire that the 7temples Festival site will become an evolving platform suitable for annual events and a 365-days-a-year learning center for Balinese culture and the global eco-movement.

Pastika says a plan to give a cash payment of Rp. 6 million (US$ 462) to every retired Balinese artists from the budget of the Bali Cultural Service is inadequate. The governor is urging new sources of funding be found that would allow more funds to be allocated to the aging arts community.

Garuda Prepares for Peak Travel During Julyís Lebaran Travel Period

Garuda Indonesia is preparing 1.61 million passenger seats to meet additional passenger demand over the peak 2015 Lebaran holiday period.

The exact dates (for the extra seats) will begin on July 8 and run until July 27, 2015 (8 days before Lebaran until 10 days after Lebaran).”
 
Pujobroto said the total number of extra seat would represent an 8% increase over the extra seat allocated during Lebaran 2014 that totaled 1.49 million seats.
 
On certain domestic and international routes with the heaviest demand Garuda will add some 16,044 seats on routes from Jakarta to Denpasar, Padang, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Perth

“Of these 16.044 additional seats, 10,620 will be realized by utilizing larger aircraft and the remaining 5,424 seats via additional flight slots,” explained Pujobroto.
 
Larger aircraft will be used on 22 flight frequencies between Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali), 4 flights between Jakarta and Padang, and 10 flights between Jakarta and Surabaya.
 
On international routes larger aircraft will be deployed on flights to Singapore (44 flights) and Hong Kong (10 flights) that were formerly served with Boeing B737-800 aircraft.
 
32 extra flights by the national carrier will 24 new domestic flight numbers between Jakarta and Yogyakarta (8 flights) and Jakarta and Denpasar (16 flights). Meanwhile 8 new international flight numbers will be flown Jakarta-Sydney (4 flights) and Jakarta-Perth (4 flights). All the extra flight frequencies will be operated with Boeing B737-800 aircraft with seating configurations for 162 passengers.
 
Garuda is urging passengers planning to fly over the peak holiday period to make their flight bookings as soon as possible, using web check-in, city check-in and phone check-in facilities to reduce delays at airports. Earlier than normal arrival at airports is recommended over the busy Lebaran travel period of the year.


Rabies or Brain Infection?
A 41-year-old housewife from Berangbang village in Negara, Bali is the latest victim to die after being bitten by a Dog.

Ni Luh Mariani, a mother of two, died on Wednesday, May 27, 2015.
 
As reported by The Bali Post, the victim’s husband Putu Swastika told authorities that both he and his wife, together with a relation named Made Mustika, had been bitten on the leg by a dog on May 15, 2017. Four days after the suffering the bites, the dog that inflicted them was euthanized and an examination of the dog’s brain yielded a positive result for rabies.
 
As recommended by health authorities, the couple received VAR (anti rabies) injections on May 20th, but the woman began developing clinical symptoms of the disease on May 26th.  Mariani fell into a coma and was declared dead at the Negara General Hospital on May 27th.
 
The head of the Jembrana Health Service, Dr. Putu Suasta told the press that the deceased woman who had received two VAR injections did not succumb to rabies but, instead, suffered an infection of the brain.
 
The husband of the dead woman complained to Radar Bali that the VAR vaccine was only administered on May 20th a full five days after reporting the bite to health authorities.


Keeping Bali Travel Regulated
Bali Cracking Down on Illegal Tour Packages Offered by Unlicensed Travel Agents

The Provincial Government of Bali is reminding the public wishing to holiday on the Island to only use travel agents licensed by the government.
 
The province wants the public to avoid using unlicensed agencies that are involved in a number of illegalities including the use of unlicensed guides.
 
The Provincial Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) has been ordered by the Governor to bring all travel agents operating in Bali into line with the law. The Satpol PP has been ordered to undertake surprise raids and inspections of travel agents in Bali.
 
As reported by Viva.co.id, a surprise inspection carried out in Jembrana last week disclosed that 4 of 22 operating travel agents were operating in violation of Provincial Law Number One of 2010 on Travel Agencies.
 
Two of the illegal agencies made a commitment to work together with a licensed agency while the remaining two were without any sort of license.
 
I Ketut Pongres of the Satpol PP said the illegal tour operators have been summoned for further investigation.
 
Pongres told the press: “Our raid was undertaken because there are many tour packages sold from outside Bali that violate the Provincial law. This is usually done with tour programs for students. This is very dangerous as these tour packets are illegal.”
 
Pongres went on to explain that Section 13 Paragraph 2 of Provincial Law Number 1 of 2010 stipulated that travel agents from outside of Bali undertaking tours in Bali are required to work in association a local travel bureau and licensed guides in Bali.
 
Pongres recommends that the public following a tour program in Bali always inquire regarding the licenses of the Bali tour operator. In order to control the illegal sale of tour packages for Bali the Satpol PP regularly inspect arriving tourists crossing at the port of Gilimanuk or at tourist objects in Bali.


Sky Garden to Close?
Village of Kuta Calls for Closure of Sky Garden Discotheque

The traditional village of Kuta has responded to continuing troubles and strife surrounding the Sky Garden Discotheque by petitioning the Regency of Badung to close the doors on the popular nightspot.

The traditional village head (bendesa adat) of Kuta, Wayan Swarsa, told DenPost on Thursday, May 28, 2015 that a letter recommending the Sky Garden’s closure would be sent to the Regent of Badung on Friday, May 29, 2015.

Swarsa said that a village meeting convened on May 25, 2015, decided to demand the Sky Garden’s closure. Swarsa told the press that the village, acting on its own initiative, could, in fact, summarily close the Sky Garden. But rather than taking unilateral action that could create tensions in the community, the village council would write to the Regent to end the disorder and disruption to community peace resulting from the continuing presence of the Sky Garden in Kuta.

The village chief said the call for the closure of the Sky Garden comes after many months of non-productive dialogues with the establishment’s management, As recently as March 31, 2015, the village warned the management to follow the rules on closing time, reduce noise pollution caused by the club and address the internal conflicts spilling over from Sky Garden’s operations. According to Swarsa, the Sky Garden has ignore all warnings delivered to them by the village.

When DenPost contacted the head of the Badung Tourism Service, Cokorda Raka Darmawan, to seek his reaction to the Kuta village request that the Sky Garden be closed, Cokorda suggested the problems surrounding the Sky Garden should be referred to the relevant government agency. These agencies would include the Manpower Department and the Coordinating Agency for Permits and Licenses (BPPT). When the newspaper then contacted the head of the BPPT for Badung, they in turn suggested that the matter be referred to Cokorda’s office.
