Caring Hoteliers Reach Out to Karangasem, Bali
Sheraton Bali Kuta Workers Reach Out to Assist Impoverished Village in Northeast Bali

The Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort has launched a community outreach program as part of its commitment to creating a better life for the Island community of Bali.

The Human Resource team’s Care for Community Program focuses on community involvement; intended to help the Resort’s associates and their neighbors achieve a better standard of living.

The Program has targeted the northeast Bali village of Tianyar in Karangasem for attention.

The environment in this remote region of Bali is harsh with little rain and infertile soil - making it difficult to raise crops for daily sustenance. This is especially the case for Gede Sudiarsa and his family. “Pak Sudi” works as an open pit miner earning the meager wage of Rp. 60,000 per day on the average 3 days a week that he manages to secure work. This money supports the living and schooling cost for the man’s wife and their four school-aged children.

A team of 24 Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort Associates and 7 vendors visited Pak Sudi’s home on October 10t, 2016 and provided basic training on cement mixing, masonry, and the installation or irrigation pipes. The mission helped Pak Sudi renovate his house, including installing a toilet.

Poor sanitation is blamed for sickness in the community, accentuated by a lack of access to clean water.

“I am touched by the humility of the people and shocked to see the living conditions of the community here. We are definitely committed to making the place a better living condition for the people here and I am glad that the team is also geared towards the same vision. Many families in Bali live in inadequate accommodation and the children are unable to attend schools due to lack of transportation. Pak Sudi’s daughter, for example, has to walk for miles to get a basic education because their only bicycle is broken. It saddens me to hear that. The next time we come back here, we are going to aim to build an education center so that the children in this village do not need to travel far to receive a basic education,” commented Dario Orsini, general manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort.

On November 4th, the team returned to the area with the villagers extending an enthusiastic welcome. The team enjoyed lunch with the villagers and shared the importance of keeping their living area clean. During the visit, Pak Sudi’s daughter was presented with a new bicycle to enable her to commute with ease to school each day.

Team members were inspired by their eye-opening experience of assisting a remote Balinese community and the chance to build bonds of friendship with the villagers of Tianyar.


Bali Still the Best Holiday
Bali Remains Top Destination for Domestic Holidaymakers

The State News Agency Antara reports that Bali retains its position as the favorite domestic destination for Indonesians on a weekend or year-end holiday.

The head of marketing for the largest Indonesia online travel agency (OTA) Traveloka, Dannis Muhammad, affirmed on Monday, November 21, 2016, that Bali remains the favorite weekend getaway for Indonesian travelers.

Meanwhile, the CEO of another Indonesian OTA, pegipegi.com, Ryan Kartawidjaja, said Bali remains the top selling destination on their website, followed by Bandung and Jakarta.

Traveloka recorded that in addition to Bali, the community of Bogor remains a top seller for Indonesians seeking a brief getaway.

When Indonesians travel abroad, Singapore remains the top destination for a short holiday.

Singapore is little more than a one-hour flight from Jakarta or Bali.

When Indonesian travelers have more than a few days to travel, they tend to travel slightly further afield to destinations such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan. Indonesians on an extended domestic holiday are increasingly choosing to visit eastern Indonesia.

North Bali Couple Bathing in Local River Survive Direct Lightning Strike

A married couple from Buleleng in North Bali had a close brush with death on Wednesday, November 23, 2016, when they were struck by lightning while bathing together in the river adjacent to their home.

I Kadek Suari Budaya, 38, and Ni Putu Ekayani, 31, were knocked unconscious at around 1:00 pm while bathing together at Banjar Alas Harum in the village of Bungkulan. Ekyani was doing laundry in the river as her husband, Kadek, was soaking in the river under overcast skies in a light rain.

Suddenly they were struck by a lightning bolt of such intensity that it disrupted the surrounding water and riverbanks with its force. The couple were flung into the air by the electrical bolt and knocked unconscious. Fortunately, local villagers quickly came to the scene and brought the dazed man and wife to the Buleleng General Hospital in Singaraja.

As reported by NusaBali, the couple only suffered superficial burns despite reports that only 5 meters from the lightening strike all the electronics in the couple’s house were scattered helter-skelter around their residence following the incident, while 11 nearby homes suffered physical damage and broken electronics.

A coconut tree 3 meters from the strike was also scorched at its tip by the bolt out of the blue.

Budaya and Ekayani, who work as casual laborers, were treated at the Hospital’s emergency room for two hours before being allowed to return home at 5:00 pm.


Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
West Bali Police Claim No Knowledge of Large, Well-Organized Cigarette Black Market

For what the press claims to have been the past 5 years, contraband cigarettes are being distributed without the required duty stamps in the Jembrana Regency in Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Police in the city of Negara have arrested men for distributed cigarettes of the brand “Grend” lacking the requied duty stamp.

Despite the arrest, the sale of contraband cigarettes continue unabated in Jembrana with officials accused of turning a convenient blind eye to the practice that causes substantial loss in state revenues.

Those following the case have traced the illegal trade in untaxed cigarettes to a warehouse in the village of Air Kuning in Jembrana that is allegedly guarded by local officials to prevent interference by law enforcement authorities.

A neighbor living close to the warehouse says the distribution center for the illegal cigarettes has been in operation for the past 5 years without any interference from police. 5 sales officers operate from the warehouse delivering the cigarettes to the public across several regencies of Bali.

A source told Beritabali.com that the contraband cigarettes are smuggled from Java in small trucks traveling at night via the Gilimanuk ferry crossing and then transferred to private vehicles to avoid undue attention for the final leg to the warehouse.

The cigarettes are later taken before sunrise each on motorcycles from the warehouse to customers. The motorcycles use side roads through villages to avoid detection by police who often conduct road inspection on the main roads of Bali.

The contraband cigarettes are sold to the public at only Rp. 6,000 a pack.

The three bands promoted by the blackmarket operations are Grend, Estiga and Still.

Heron Djuanda, the head of the Negara Police Precinct told the press that he had not heard of the blackmarket warehouse in operation in his area of enforcement. Based on the latest information, he did, however, promise to look into the matter.

Quoted by Metrobali.com, President Widodo said on Friday, November 25, 2016: “China produces 150 (outbound) tourists each year, with many traveling to America and Europe. I request that (Indonesia) get 10 million (tourists) from China."

The President said he has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Chinese Government to increase tourism flows to Indonesia.

The President described how 10 “new” tourism areas were being developed and promoted to attract foreign tourists. He also said that the Indonesian tourism product was in the process of being differentiated, undergoing brand development and other steps to achieve 20 million tourists by 2019.

Expect Gridlock Ahead
Transportation Experts Say Bali to Become an Island of Motorcycles and Cars within 10 Years

As reported by Beritabali.com, Putu Putra Jaya Wardana, a graduate of from the post-graduate program in transportation from the prestigious Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), provided a penetrating review of the transportation sector in Bali.

Bali, with a land area of 5.636 square kilometers, represents only 0,29 % of the total island landmass of Indonesia.

Bali  had 3,505,984 registered vehicles in 2015, increasing an average 7.5% per year from 2012 – 2014. It is predicted that by 2026 the number of vehicles operating in Bali will exceed 6.1 million.

Wardana predicts Bali will face increasingly massive travel congestion in the years to come unless remedial steps are not quickly taken. The growing number of vehicles in combination with traditional ceremonies often held on Bali roads portend traffic congestions that exceed those experienced in the Nation’s capital city of Jakarta.

While Bali has tried to overcome its traffic problems by building new roads and introducing a mass transit bus system, traffic congestion remains a growing problem.

Wardana said he wants to see the Sarbagita Bus System in Bali improve and provide popular transportation services to both Bali residents and visiting tourists.

He warned that the growing number of vehicles found on Bali’s roads each year the Island will face extraordinary traffic congestion within ten years.

An 18-year-old Australian man, Jamie Murphy, is back home after a very narrow escape with the law in Bali as part of the annual invasion of “schoolies” – Australian school leavers who come to party on a grand scale in Bali.

News.com.au reports that Murphy, accompanied by his parents, were whisked through Perth’s airport into a waiting vehicle to avoid contact with the press.

Murphy was taken into police custody after a security check on Monday, November 21, 2016, while entering the Sky Garden Bar in Kuta, revealed a concealed plastic bag containing a substance suspected of being an illegal narcotic. After two grueling days in Police custody, the substance tested to be crushed paracetamol, that the man had bought on the street from someone who assured him could make him “feel good.” Subsequent blood and urine tests found Murphy to be narcotics-free

The chief of the Kuta Police Wayan Sumara said Murphy was “very lucky” with the outcome after his brief period of detention. Had the substance been shown to be an illegal narcotic the Perth teenager could have faced a prison term of up to 12 years behind bars in Bali’s notorious Kerobokan Prison.

Murphy reportedly refused comment when asked what he thought he was buying when he purchased what turned out to be a bag of headache powder.

The man’s parents flew to Bali after learning of their son’s arrest and accompanied him on his flight back to Australia.

Eliminating Japanese Encephalitis in Bali
Bali Selected for Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine Pilot Project in 2017

Bali Post reports that the province of Bali is slated to become a “pilot project” in providing Japanese encephalitis vaccine to 71,000 children who are less than 14 years of age in 2017.

Japanese encephalitis (JE) is a preventable disease via a vaccine available in Indonesia to only those able to pay a relatively high price.

Human beings are infected with JE by an infected mosquito. A small number of those afflicted with the disease can develop an inflammation of the brain accompanied by symptoms that include headache, high fever, disorientation, coma, tremors, and convulsion.

25% of the cases are fatal.

Dr. I Gusti Ngurah Made Suwarba, a pediatrician at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital confirmed the pilot vaccination project for Bali. He said Bali has been picked from among other provinces in Indonesia due to the Island province’s ability to undertake surveillance of a given disease.

“There is now a vaccine available but the price is very high. Hopefully, our goal to provide JE immunization at health centers will be achieved. That is the final goal of the Ministry of Health,” said Dr. Suwarba.

Based on the success of the vaccination program in Bali, the program will be expanded to other regions of Indonesia.

Keeping AIDS at Bay with ARV in Bali
Bali Supply of ARV to Manage HIV Cases in Bali is Sufficient

Bali Post reports that based on data provided by the Bali Provincial Health Department through the end of October 2016, there are now 6,361 people afflicted with HIV/AIDS who are receiving ARV (Antiretroviral) treatment.

From the total of 6.361 patients on ARV, some 2,070 have experiences a break in treatment.

The number of total HIV/AIDS cases counted in Bali through the end of October 2016 is 15,200.

Health officials insist that the supply of ARV in Bali for those suffering from HIV/AIDS remains sufficient, in stark contract with other provinces in Indonesia where the supply of ARV remains problematic.

Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, the chief of the Bali Provincial Heath Department, said that ARV is sent from Jakarta to Bali on a regular basis based on the number of HIV/AIDS cases reported to the Ministry of Health. New drug supplies are sent to Bali once every three months with distribution on a monthly basis to health centers and hospitals in Bali.

Bali health officials urged those infected with HIV to be disciplined and take their ARV treatments as directed by their doctor. Officials war that when patients stop their ARV treatment for 2-3 months, the chance that their HIV status could develop into AIDS increases considerably.

The chairman of the Kerti Pertiwi Foundation (YKP), Professor Wirawan, confirmed that YKP had just taken delivery of 1,000 bottles of ARV injections for use over a two-month period. Wirawan said that any shortage of ARV supplies could be caused by distribution problems or delays in requesting new supplies

Past shortages in Bali have been overcome through the “lending” of ARV stocks between the different regencies in Bali while waiting for new stocks to arrive. Wirawan said that any momentary shortages in ARV has never caused patients to stops their treatments, even on a temporary basis.

Quoted by DenPost, Agus Sujata, Managing Director of Pandansari Dive and Water Sports on the Tanjung Benoa Peninsula in South Bali, is complaining that business in the form of people undertaking waters sports activity is down by as much as 70%.

Sujata was quick to blame the downturn in business on a whole litany of problems including bad weather, political tension in Jakarta, high air fares, destruction of the coral reefs and recent fatal accidents involving South Bali water sports operators.

Sujata’s indictment of airfares and political tensions is not, however, borne out by arrival numbers to Bali that remains at record levels.

While it is difficult to clearly decipher why the water sports sectors is experiencing a downturn, it may be due to a drop in domestic travelers that a lack of quality data from tourism officials make difficult to monitor.

More likely to be causing the decline in water sports visitors is bad weather over recent weeks and reports of poor safety standards at the root of a fatal accident that took place earlier in November 2016
