Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono spent most of the third week April in Bali holding meetings with provincial governor at Bali's hillside presidential palace of Tampaksiring. Returning to the capital Jakarta on the weekend he was back in Bali on April 26, 2010, to officially open a major geothermal conference at Nusa Dua.

While in Bali last week the Indonesian president spent time on Sunday, April 18, 2010, to check on proposed venues and arrangements for the 2011 ASEAN Summit and the APEC Summit set for the island in 2013.

According to Tempo Interaktif, the President inspected both the Westin and its adjoining Bali International Conference Center (BICC), and the Ayana Resort in Jimbaran.

Particularly impressed with the Ayana Resort, Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika, who escorted the President on in hotel inspection, heaped praise on the Jimbaran property saying, "This hotel is one of the best in the world."

Pastika said that both he and the Minister of Home Affairs had earlier inspected a number of hotels and determined that the Ayana Resort was most appropriate for the coming summit meetings, adding "other place are not ready and do not meet the criteria."
