BALI UPDATE #1022 - 4 April 2016

Tourism Kills Tourism
Group of Tourism Intellectuals Map a Plan to Save Bali as a Cultural Destination

Bali tourism has undergone an unprecedented period of growth over the past decade and, as reported by Beritabali.com, much of the growth in the tourism sector has taken place against a backdrop of minimum control exercised by the relevant government authorities.

Over the past decade, growth in foreign tourists arrival to Bali has averaged annually at around 15%. In 2015, Bali experienced a record 4 million tourist arrivals. Meanwhile, Bali has also recorded a booming growth in domestic visitors over the same period.

“Consider the indirect foreign visitors who arrive in Bali via domestic air flights, and the sea ports of Gilimanuk, Padangbai and Benoa, and we end up adding an estimated 5.3 million foreign tourists who came to Bali "indirectly" in 2015. This also does not include the domestic tourists, estimated at around 7 million, which means Bali received as many as 12.3 million total tourist in 2015,” said Dr. Ir. Agung Suryawan Wiranatha of the Alliance of Bali Community Leaders (ATMB) in a press release issued on March 30, 2016.

Continuing, Agung said that the average growth of 15% in foreign tourist visitors over the past decade has fueled the interests of investors to seek projects in Bali. Moreover, these investors have largely chosen to invest their funds in the tourism accommodation sub-sector.

The desire to invest in tourist accommodation is motivated by the fact that approximately 35% of all foreign tourist expenditures during a Bali holiday goes to paying for hotels or villas.

The actual numbers of hotel rooms in Bali is anything but clear. The Bali chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali) counts 130,000 rooms for sale in Bali in 2015, while the figures maintained by the Bali Tourism Service (Diparda-Bali) in 2014 counted a much lower 61,000 rooms.

So, what’s actually going on in the tourism accommodation sector in Bali?

Perhaps helping to explain the differing totals of rooms available, there is widespread and well-founded suspicion that a great number of the accommodation offered for sale in Bali is operating illegally. Also attracting investor's money to Bali are restaurant and shopping centers, each claiming around 17% of all tourist expenditures.

As the result of heavy investment in accommodation, restaurants and shopping centers the face and natural environment of Bali has been dramatically changed from a once rural setting to an island blighted by uncontrolled construction and buildings dotting the horizon in almost all directions. The overbuilt landscape has precipitated complaints from many Island visitors. The over-development of the Island’s south is also impacting on Bali’s unique culture as people from other areas of Indonesia migrate en masse to Bali in seek of employment.

The mass migration of newcomers to Bali has unsettled and marginalized the once-dominant Bali-Hindu population. Bali observers are concerned that a failure by officials to monitor these changes and take anticipative steps may eventually result in social unrest that will further negatively impact the Island’s tourism industry.

Officials and administrators in Bali are also being blamed for a failure to protect the overall attractiveness of Bali as a tourism destination as visitors experience many attractions and sites that are in a poor condition and in a state of obvious decline. Tourists visiting famous tourism sites on the island are also complaining on social media of unscrupulous coercion by thugs and local residents demanding illegal payments and fees.

Bali’s infrastructure is under severe strain. Roads are congested and badly maintained and trash is left in large piles decomposing on the side of major thoroughfares.

Suffering from its own success, many tourism observers now proclaim, “tourism kills tourism.”

Recognizing that tourism can equally be a force for good or evil, the ATMB has made the following recommendations:
  1. The establish of rules connected to the tourism industry (such as the 2009 Bali Zoning Law and the Regional Tourism Culture Regulations) that must be consistently and rigorously enforced in order that the “spirit” of Bali tourism based on cultural tourism and the Bali-Hindu precept of Tri Hita Karana can be maintained.
  2. That Bali Tourism must be operated under the principle of “One Island Management,” bearing in mind that the Province of Bali is a small island sharing a single ecosystem and is dependents on limited natural resources that must be shared.
  3. The current view of developing Bali based on “mass tourism” must systematically be repositioned to one of “quality tourism.”
  4. Priority must be given to the development of small-to-medium scale alternative tourism products, such as ecotourism, agricultural tourism, spiritual tourism, rural tourism, adventure tourism and wellness tourism that will allow the economic participation of local residents. The alternative products must be based on Balinese cultural traditions of openness and courtesy to visitors; be environmentally sustainable; and follow all rules and regulations.
  5. Priority must be given to the development of tourism projects in East Bali, North Bali and West Bali with public sector investment in a supporting infrastructure of transportation (land, sea and air) to enhance access to these areas.
  6. The policy of a moratorium on new accommodation construction in South Bali announced by the Governor in 2011 must be implemented for at least the coming 5-10 years. The exact period of the subject moratorium must be based on a scientific review.
  7. Regional regulations must be introduced to protect agricultural lands and agriculture-based businesses, such as requiring the purchase of local farm products and offering traditional Balinese cuisine at Bali-based hotels.
  8. The government in Bali must work with the relevant agencies to produce reliable and accurate scientifically based tourism-related data to be used by policy-makers in formulating tourism policies.


Meth in His Madness
Indian National Gets 14-Year in Bali Prison for Smuggling Methamphetamines into Bali

Agence France-Press reports that an Indian national, Sayed Mohammed Said (30), was handed a 14-year prison sentence in Bali on Monday, March 28, 2016 for trying to smuggle 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamines into Bali via the Island’s airport in September 2015.

Customs officials discovered the drugs, concealed in a backpack, as the man arrived off a flight from Bangkok.

Said claimed the package containing the narcotics were handed him a friend and he had no knowledge he was carrying an illegal substance.

The sentence handed down by the court of 14-years was less than the 20-years sought by State Prosecutors.

The amount of narcotics involved in the arrest would have allowed the State to seek the death penalty against the man. Should he choose to appeal the sentence, a higher court could then elect to increase the penalty for more years in prison or even impose the maximum of execution before a firing squad.

The Airport Authority for Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport and leaders of traditional villages in Bali are coordinating their efforts to bring the use of laser lighting, high-flying kites and drones under control in areas over the approach and departure paths of the Island’s sole aerodrome.

As reported by Kompas.com, the chief of the Bali Airport Authority, Yusfandri Gona, announced the community-wide effort to eliminate threats to civil aviation at a meeting of civil aviation organizations in Bali.

“We have encouraged the traditional villages to unite and help us to control the use of laser light, drones, and kites that are disrupting air traffic,” said Yusfrandri on Tuesday, March 29, 2016.

Yusfrandri confirmed that his office had contacted village leaders and several drone communities in Bali to prevent any accidents and disruptions to commercial flight operations.

Referring to the Balinese long-standing tradition of kite flying, Yusfrandi admitted, “When it comes to kites, there are still some flying (near the airport), but they are few.”

In an effort to raise awareness of the threat posed by the use of lasers, kites and drones in airline traffic areas, the Airport Authority has installed banners, posters and other means to draw the public’s attention to the problem.

Back in your Cage, Tiger
Tigerair Australia Encounters Regulatory Snafus in Launch of Bali Flights

One day after a launch with much fanfare, Tigerair Australia's new Bali flights have encountered a serious obstacle, having launched the service without the required approval from the Indonesian civil aviation department for the flight from Bali to back to Australia.

According to News.com.au, until Tigerair Australia gets the regulatory nod of approval from the Indonesian government they can only sell one-way tickets from Australia to Bali or round-trip tickets from Australia to Bali and back again. Until the approval is in hand, Tigerair Australia cannot sell tickets that start in Bali for trips back to Australia.

The failure to obtain the needed license from the Indonesian government has resulted in several flights by Tigerair Australia being cancelled with passengers moved to Virgin Australia flights.

Tigerair is issuing statements that only “small number of passengers affected by scheduled changes from Bali.”

Passengers rerouted on Virgin Air flights back to Australia have sometimes had to undertake extended journeys using both international flights in combination with domestic flights in order to return to their hometowns.

One passenger, Elisabeth Bjelland of Perth, posting on Facebook said: “Our flight on Monday from Bali is cancelled. Got offered a 30-hour flight to Perth via Brisbane cutting our holiday one day short.”

It is not clear when Tigerair Australia will be able to obtain the needed Indonesian permits to commence full service and ticket sales.

When Police Start Doubting Thomas
Indonesian Soap Opera Idol Named Suspect in Bali Land Fraud Deal

Baliexpressnews.com reports that Indonesia matinee idol Jeremy Thomas has been formally named as a suspect in a case of embezzlement and land fraud involving an Ubud Villa, despite claims to the contrary by Thomas’ attorney who insists the actor is only being questioned by police as a witness.

Baliexpress.com and Radar Bali reported on Friday, April 1, 2016 that Thomas has been formally classified as a "suspect" after days of extended interviews in Bali with the criminal division of the Bali police.

Thomas is being charged by police with violations of Sections 372 and 378 of the criminal code (KUHP) covering embezzlement and fraud. A source at the Bali Police said, “(Thomas) has been classified as a suspect since last week.”

Police have decided not to take the actor into custody, preferring to require him to report to the police while the formal investigation continues.

Jeremy Thomas’ troubles with the law date from the purchase of a 3,500 square meters of land in the Kedewatan area of Ubud, Bali in 1999. Because the purchaser, Patrick Alexander, is an Australian national working in Indonesia, he contracted businessman Rudi Marcio, a properly agent, to act as a nominee in the transaction. Alexander then constructed a villa on the site, later agreeing to allow Thomas to build a spa on a 1,200 square meter sub-sectionof the subject property.

Jeremy Thomas then asked Alexander’s permission to change the name on the property title from Marcio’s to his own in order to facilitate a loan from a bank to provide funds to build the proposed spa.

Thomas succeeded in obtaining a loan of Rp. 17 billion, but in contradiction of a formal agreement made with Alexander, he only paid Rp. 1 billion to the Australian businessman.

In order to regain title to his land, Alexander launched a successful legal battle with Thomas  (see link) that found Thomas has acted improperly in the transaction.

Based on the findings of the civil court, Thomas now faces criminal charges with the Bali Police and the threat of years behind bars in a Bali prison.

This is a Sticker-Up!
Three Arrested and Four Sought in ATM Scam in Bali

NusaBali reports that West Denpasar Police have managed to round up a group of three criminals specializing in a somewhat ingenious scheme to defraud customers using ATM machines in Bali.

Police caught one of the fraudsters at the Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) ATM Machine locate at a Pertamina Gas Station on Jalan Iman Bonjol in Denpasar.

When taken into custody, the three thieves were caught with fraudulent stickers listing a false “Call Center BNI” telephone number that resolve to a false location that, when answered, claimed to be a BNI office that solicited PIN numbers and other information. Police also confiscated plastic devices used to clog ATM machines and several hand phones.

A spokesman for the West Denpasar Police said the arrest of the three men was based on a report from an ATM user who was suspicious of the sticker placed on the ATM machine.

The individual who raised the alarm told police that when he tried to use the subject ATM, the machine did not return his card. Moments later, a man identified as Eryose Andesta (24) came into the ATM booth and suggested the customer call the fictitious “call center number” listed on the sticker placed earlier on the machine by the criminal trio. The customer became suspicious and an argument ensued with Andesta. A passing pedestrian who witnessed the argument became suspicious and alerted police to the situation.

Police from the criminal investigation unit arrived at the ATM to find the two still involved in an animated argument. When police questioned the two men, Andesta reportedly became frightened, causing police to hold him for further questioning.

Subsequent questioning and investigation revealed that Andesta, who hails from Palembang in South Sumatra, was part of a group of 7 working at ATMs in various locations around Bali, including another at the Taman Mekar Hotel in Jalan Poppies II in Kuta.

Police then tracked down two members of the group, Patimura (20) and Ahmas Hoidoru (25), who were captured in possession of more of the falsified stickers and the related hand phones.

Further questioning revealed that the group of 7, four still being sought by police, has been cheating ATM users in Jakarta, Bali and Lombok.

The four being sought by police have been identified as Danu, Kathy, Hervan and M. Tolib.


A Strong Aversion to Perversion
English Tourist Charged at Gili Trawangan with Sexually Molesting a 17-Year-Old Boy

An English tourist, identified only by the initials LS (28), has been apprehended by police on Gili Trawangan Island, located between Bali and Lombok, on suspicion of the sexual molestation of a minor.

Kompas.com quoted the head of the criminal division of the West Lombok Police, Joko Tamtomo, who said the incident revolved around LS inviting an English boy, aged 17, to a drinking session on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

Police say the older Englishman gave 20 shots of alcohol to the boy who became severely intoxicated, after which he brought the 17-year-old back to his accommodation on Gili Trawanagan where he sexually molested him.

Police say that when the boy regained consciousness, he began screaming and ran from the beach bungalow.

The owner of the bungalow immediately reported the case to the boy’s family who brought the matter to the police.

Police investigations, including a forensic medical examination of the young man, confirmed sexual violation has occurred.

The Englishmen has reportedly admitted to police that he is a homosexual.

Police are charging the 27-year-old on Section 82, paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code Number 35 of 2014 on the protection of children, providing for a minimum penalty of 5 years imprisonment and a maximum term of 15 years combined at a maximum fine of Rp. 5 billion.


Baby Shower X 3 at Bali Safari and Marine Park
Three New Babies Surrounded by Love at Bali Safari & Marine Park

In keeping with its leading role as a conservator of wildlife, the Bali Safari and Marine Park is proud to welcome three new members to its happy animal kingdom family. The three healthy, newborn wild babies being lovingly cared for by the team of professional animal keepers at the Park are a white African rhinoceros, a giraffe and a hippopotamus.



Singo, the baby giraffe, is the offspring of Sophie (7 years) and Matadi (6 years) who roam the wide spaces of the African Section of the Park’s Safari Journey. Pembe, the rare white rhino is the baby daughter of Hima (24 years) and Nelson (21) – more popularly known to animal keepers and visitors as Mr. and Mrs. Nelson, and was born on November 4, 2015. Rounding out the trio of newborn animals is the yet-to-be-named male hippopotamus born on March 24, 2016.

All three babies were the results of a natural birthing process without any human intervention, with a team of expert veterinarians monitoring the entire process on closed-circuit TV and ready to intervene, if required.

Dr. Nimal Fernando, Manager Life and Science, at the Bali Safari and Marine Park explained the kind of difficulties encountered by his team in trying to propagate captive rare animal species: “Frankly, it’s not easy to get two African rhinos to mate. ‘Pembe’ is the first baby rhino born at the Park since ‘Hima’s’ arrival in Bali six years ago. For mating to occur, the male rhino must physically conquer his partner, a ritual that proved difficult for ‘Nelson’ who is several years younger than his mate. To consummate the relationship between the two rhinos and cause ‘Hima’ to become pregnant the Bali Safari Team undertook a number of supporting strategies, including providing special nutritional enrichment to improve the fecundity of ‘Hima’ and ‘Nelson’.”



African white rhinos represent an endangered species, with the Bali Safari and Marine Park the only home to this rare animal on the entire Island. And, because such births are rare, news of the Park’s successful breeding of a baby rhino was welcomed as exciting news in conservation circles worldwide.

The birth of baby animals of every variety represents joyful news at the Park, with both the animal parents and the Park’s human family eager to introduce the “new kids on the Park” to a wider audience. If you would like to meet Singo and Pembe, they can be found everyday grazing with their parents on the motorized Safari Journey at the Park. Meanwhile, the Park’s new baby hippopotamus is still receiving special care at the Park’s nursery, scheduled to join Bali Safari’s general population of animals in the near future.


Chinese Tourists to the Fore
Bali by the Numbers: Tidal Shift in Tourist Arrivals Marks the Opening Period of Bali Tourism in 2016

Official foreign tourist arrival numbers covering the first two months of 2016 indicate that Bali may be in for a very different and challenging year ahead.

The good news is that tourist arrivals standing at 473,182 for January-February 2016 are up 9.86% when compared to the same two months in 2015.



That times are changing in Bali tourism is demonstrated that for the first time in the Island’s history the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has moved into the lead position among source markets with 189,594 Mainland Chinese visiting in January-February 2016, followed by the former leader Australia with 154,892 visitors in the same period. With respective market shares of 26.09% and 21.32%, the PRC and Australia markets represent 47.4% of all foreign tourist arrivals to Indonesia.



It will be interesting to see if Australian arrival numbers received a boost in Q2 of 2016 due to the introduction of a visa-free policy for a market once required to pay US$35 for a 30-day visa.

The shift in source markets for Bali tourism arrivals may result in something of a zero-sum-game as a decline in Australian arrivals (down 0.98% for the first two months of 2016) and an increase in PRC visitors (up 30.08% for the same period) will not prove to be a golden elixir for "what ails Bali tourism" due to the extremely short length of stay for Chinese holiday makers when compared to longer staying and higher spending Australians.

Among the star performers for January – February 2016 are the U.K. (+45.18%), India (+ 47.95%), USA (+ 31.35%), Germany (+ 33.17%), Russia (+ 25.28%) and Canada (+ 18.97%).

A 17.35% decline in ASEAN visitors to Bali in the first two months of the year was led by Singapore (-16.28%) and Malaysia (-10.90%).

Pensioner's End
Aged Canadian Woman, Mary Elizabeth, Dies in a Legian Hotel Room

A 93-year-old Canadian woman, Elizabeth Mary, has died in her room at the Hotel Jayakarta on Jalan Werkudara in Legian on Wednesday, March 30, 2016.

Mary, traveling with her daughter Beth, had checked into the hotel on March 2, 2016 and was planning to check out on April 1, 2016.

The woman’s daughter had told hotel staff earlier in the morning that her aged mother was ill in her room. Hotel staff attempted to urge the elderly woman to seek medical assistance at a local hospital, but their advice was refused.

When the hotel’s medical officer went to the woman’s room at 12 noon, Mary was discovered to have expired.

Police were called to the scene and found no suspicious circumstances, leading police to conclude the woman, who was ill, had died of natural causes.


Bali: Just Deserts?
Bali Running Out of Water: Most Areas Now Operating a Water Deficit.

Bali Post reports that Bali will face an acute deficit of fresh water over the coming decade as both water quality and water quantity are in serious decline.

Underlining the severe state of Bali's water crisis are calculations that among the 462 rivers found on Bali, 300 are now "bone dry."

The 22 major rivers that flow through more than one regency of the Island are also said to be under pressure.

During Bali’s prolonged dry season, the rate-of-flow decreased markedly on Bali’s rivers and the mountain lakes that feed the lowlands with water have become critically shallow in depth as the result of heavy sedimentation.

Experts blame the deforestation of Bali’s heartlands as contributing to water shortages in rivers and lakes.

The head of the Bali Provincial Environmental Agency (BLH), Gede Surjana, said that because hotel guests require an average of 500 liters of fresh water for every day of their stay, a moratorium on new hotels is needed together with additional steps, such as capturing rain water and water conservations measures are needed to avert an even more drastic water shortage in the coming decade.

In order to reduce the over-exploitation of ground water the BLH chief is urging heavier taxation of ground water well users.

Surjana urges a master plan for development in Bali that is strictly followed and makes water conservation a top priority. Those plan must also prevent the transformation of forested areas into agricultural land that leads to the sedimentation of Bali’s rivers and lakes.

With the exception of the regency of Bangli, all regencies in Bali are now operating a high water deficit that, if left unchecked, will eventually leave the island high and dry.


In Grief for Our Reefs
Alarming and Sudden Increase in Bleached, Dying Coral Reefs at Nusa Penida and Sanur in Bali

Coral reefs in and surrounding the Island Conservation Area of Nusa Penida (KKP Nusa Penida) are undergoing the destructive process of coral bleaching.

Experts are baffled as to the cause of the death of ocean coral at Nusa Penida, a phenomenon occurring in location around the globe and often blamed on climate change and higher ocean temperatures.

The chairman of KPP Nusa Penida, Nyoman Karyawan, said the rapid onset of whitening or bleaching of the coral reef eventually leaves the affected reef brittle and dead. Karyawan sees no connection with the high number of people swimming and snorkeling on the Nusa Penida reef and says intensive efforts are underway to understand the etiology of the reef bleaching process.

The appearance of the bleached coral is a relatively new development at Nusa Penida, first noted by officials in the past month.

Meanwhile, marine observers across Indonesia are reporting similar cases of reef bleaching.

As reported by Bali Post, researchers and volunteers from the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) are monitoring the condition of Indonesia’s coral reefs. CTC, basing their thinking on data revealed by satellite monitoring, has the growing suspicion that the sudden and widespread decline in coral reefs Sanur and Nusa Penida may be due to rising ocean temperatures.
