Who Speaks for Flipper?
Bali Wake Dolphin Park Responds to Animal Cruelty Charges from Animal Welfare Groups

The management of the Bali Wake Dolphin Park on Keramas Beach in Gianyar has rejected accusations by animal right groups that they have committed torture on a group of dolphins by confining them to heavily chlorinated, undersized pools resulting in the blinding of the mammals.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the operations manager of the Bali Wake Dolphin Park, Gusti Nyoman Wiadanyana, on Monday, September 14, 2015, delivered the strong denial of any responsibility to acts causing harm to the park’s dolphins.

Gusti said the reports about the Park issued by animal rights groups were inaccurate. He added that the Park has formal operating licenses from the Provincial Government of Bali and the National Government in Jakarta via the Ministry of Forestry.

He insisted that the dolphins at the Park are well cared for under the supervision of a dedicate veterinarian.

“Every day the condition of the dolphins is checked by a doctor. The water condition is also check on a daily basis. And, the size of the pools is in keeping with size requirements set by the government,” Gusti explained.

Gusti explained that the four dolphins kept at the Bali Wake Dolphin Park are females originating from Kendal in Central Java. He went on to say that all legal procedures set by the national government were obeyed in the transportation of the animals to Bali.

Gusti vehemently denied that the four dolphins - named Apni, Shanty, Penty and Sadewa - sent by PT Wersut Seguni Indonesia in Central Java - have been blinded by the highly chlorinated water of their retaining pools.

Gusti explained: “The Dolphin named Shanty arrived in Bali with a blind right eye. The original dolphin was refused by the Park and returned to Central Java and replaced with another dolphin.”

He went on to tell the press that the dolphins at Bali Wake Dolphin Park are kept in a main presentation pond measuring 12 x 12 meters at a depth of 3 meters. Meanwhile, the holding ponds measure 8 x 6 meters at a depth of 2.5 meters.

According to regulations, Gusti said the ponds are sufficient for 8 dolphins, but only used for 4. Moreover, the level of chlorination meets requirements set by two government agencies.

“The level of chlorine is 0.3 ppm and serves only as a disinfectant, to preserve the health of the dolphins’ skin. Moreover, chlorine is only used at low tide. If it’s high tide and water condition is good, we use an open system that uses filtered sea water in the pool via the north pool – and then only after being filtered 3 times. When it's low tide, we use chlorine as a disinfectant and not to clarify the water. The Director General has provided guidelines on maximum levels (of chlorine) for use in dolphin pools,” said Gusti.

Gusti extended an open invitation to those protesting the condition of the dolphins at the Bali Wake Dolphin Park to come and directly inspect Park.

Continuing, Gusti added: “Let’s be fair. Why are only the dolphin here under the spotlight, what about other tourist areas in Bali? Why are they not being discussed? Overseas in Australia there are also captive dolphin shows - why aren't these an object of concern? Why aren't they released back into the wild?”

A number of animal welfare groups have criticized the Bali Wake Dolphin Park including: Asia for Animals Coalition, Jakarta Animal Aid Network and Australians for Animals Inc. These groups have claimed the mammals are being blinded by chlorine added to their pools and that the pools used are too small for the healthy care of captive dolphins.

Human Trafficking in Bali?
West Java and West Bali Police Investigating Possible Case of Human Trafficking at Roadside Kafe

Police in Tabanan, West Bali have taken into protective custody six young women from West Java who were found working at the Kafe Kisi Kisi near the village of Jatiluwih on Tuesday, March 15, 2015

NusaBali reports that police suspect the women are victims of human trafficking. An older mamma-san, identified as Siti Masitoh (47), is in police custody suspected of having transported the girls from Sukabumi in Java to Bali.

The six girls, aged 19-22, all hailing from West Java are being interviewed by police to determine the details of their sojourn form Java to Bali and eventual employment as hostesses in the roadside café. Police say one of the women is known to be married and is 2-months pregnant,

Police visited the café after receiving a report from police in Sukabumi, West Java that a man had reported his wife was missing, taken by a human trafficking ring to Bali. While investigating the report Police discovered 6 girls who had been brought from West Java to Bali to work in the Café.

The pregnant woman told police in Tabanan that she had left her husband and home in Sukabumi on August 2, 2015, lured by the promise a big wages in Bali. The woman said Siti Masitoh had made the offer of high wages and brought the girls to Bali where they worked as waitresses in the café and stayed together in a local boarding house.

The girls told police that Siti Masitoh had offered them jobs as waitresses in a restaurant and that they were shocked to learn they were expected to keep company with men drinking in the café. The wages paid to the women was reportedly far less than the amount promised them and was linked to amount of drinks they were able to sell to customers. The pregnant waitress said she was only able to make Rp. 1.5 million in a month working at the café.

The woman spoke by telephone with her husband complaining that her job in Bali was not as promised and that she was being compelled to drink with the café’s customers. Following the phone calls, the man reported the case to police in West Java.

The women told police that they wanted to stop working at the café but had no suitable transport from its remote location back home to West Java. The café workers had also signed a contract that required them to pay Rp. 4 million each to their employer if they failed to work for a minimum period of six months.

The case is now being jointly handled by police from Tabanan in West Java and Sukabumi in West Java who are determining what, if any, criminal charges can be brought to bear in the case.


Tourism as an Economic Guarantor
Despite Worldwide Economic Woes, Bali Economy Predicted to Sustain 6% Growth Rate

A decline in the rate of growth of the Chinese economy from an average 9-12% to levels closer to 6.5-7% are also being felt in Bali.

Metrobali.com quotes the senior deputy-governor of Bank Indonesia Mirzha Adityaswara as saying in Bali on Monday, September 14. 2015: “With the current condition of the economy as it is Bali’s economy can grow about 6%. Meanwhile, the island of Sumatra is growing only 3% and Kalimantan just 1.5%. This demonstrates that Bali must serve as an example for the Nation as there are many other areas of Indonesia that have the cultural, natural, artistic and culinary attractions to support the promotion of the tourism sector of the economy and therefore fuel economic growth.”

Mirzha also pointed to the new liberalized visa policy as having the potential to boost growth in the national tourism industry. While only 15 countries were given free visas on arrival in Indonesia, the government recently expanded the number of visa-free countries to 45. Plans are in discussion to expand the number of visa-free countries to 92 sometime in the near future.

Mirzha also hopes that the strengthening of the U.S. dollar again the Rupiah will make Indonesia an even more attractive tourist destination for international travelers.

At the same time, Mirzha cautioned the government to carefully monitor economic developments in source countries of Indonesian visitors. Slow growth, poor foreign exchange rates and other factors must be considered, as there are no absolute guarantees that Indonesia’s tourists arrivals will grow from year to year.


Punch Up in Bali
WBO Lightweight Title Defense by Indonesian Boxer Daud Yordan in Bali in November 2015

WBO Asia-Pacific lightweight boxing champion Daud Yordan (62.1 kilograms) has announced that he will defend his belt in a fight with Australian boxer Josh King in Bali in early November 2015.

The Indonesian pugilist Yordan confirmed to the State News Agency Antara that Bali has been selected for his next fight in November.

Yordan has a fight record of 34 wins of which 24 were knock-outs and three losses.

Yordan who fights from the Sasana Kayong Utara Camp in West Kalimantan, told the press that he is carefully studying King’s fighting style from videos. Yordan describe his opponent as a true “fighter” who tends to wait for his opponent to bring the fight to him before launching a response. As a result, the Indonesian fighter says he will take the initiative in the coming bout and fight aggressively from the first round.

Yordan told the press that efforts are underway to bring a sparring partner from either Australia or the Philippines with a fighting style resembling Josh King’s to prepare for the coming championship fight.

Daud Yordan most recent title defense took place June 6, 2015 in his victory over Ugandan fighter Maxwell Akuwu in Surabaya, East Java on June 6, 2015. That fight saw the Indonesian fighter retain his Interim WBO Asia-Pacific Lightweight title and wine the vacant Africa Lightweight title.

Prior to that, Daud Yordan won the WBO Asia-Pacific lightweight crown from Philippine fighter Ronald Pontilas with a fifth round knock out in Pantianak, West Kalimantan.

The three defeats suffered by Daud Yordan were at the hands of South African boxer Simpiwe Vetyeka (TKO-2013), Indonesian Chris John (Unanimous Decision-2011) and Panamanian Calestino Caballero (Unanimous Decision-2010).

When Fighting Corruption is Taboo
Governor Wants Immigration Service at Bali’s Airport to be Free of Corruption and Abuse of Power

Metroibali.com reports that Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika has joined the chorus of those roundly criticizing widespread reports of extortion and blackmail by immigration officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport involving a group of Chinese travelers on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

Pastika said he has asked Bali’s former Chief of Police and newly installed Director General of Immigration Ronnie F. Sompie to quickly process reports of extortion and do what must be done to protect the Island’s tourism reputation.

Said Pastika: “Last night (September 14, 2015) I met with the Director General of Immigration (Ronnie Sompie). I asked him to take concrete steps to fix the situation. Because whatever happened, the first impression people get of Bali is from immigration.”

Pastika went on to emphasize that immigration must give the best service to all tourists. Adding: “It’s useless if we have a great terminal, great airport, but the service is not good. Yah, Bali’s name has been blemished.”

Pastika complained that similar reports from the airport have been commonplace on the past, giving the impression that abuse of office cannot be eradicated. Moreover, complained the Governor, it is as though even trying to fix these problems has become a taboo subject.

“This has been happening for a long time. If there is an (official) inspection everything is fine. When there is no inspection the problem returns. Why can't this sickness be cured? I have asked the Director General of Immigration and included that request in my speech at the installation of the new Chief of the Bali Police. But this is taboo; nothing can be done,” said the Governor.

In the installation of Bali’s new Chief of Police on Monday, September 14, 2015, Governor Pastika used his formal address to ask immigration to fix the obscene situation existing at the Bali Airport following the latest report of the victimization of a Chinese tourist by immigration officials.

Surrounding Community at Bali Nirwana Resort Complex Call on Donald Trump Not to Disturb the Area’s Sacred Tranquility

Press reports that U.S. Presidential Hopeful Donald Trump is investing in the Indonesian hotel sector by developing an integrated golfing, acccommodation and residential complex near Bali’s iconic Tanah Lot Temple is raising concerns that in the surrounding community that long-standing  covenents on the operation of Bali Nirwana Resort (BNR) will be abandoned of fundamentally changed under Trump Hotel Management.

Beritabali.com quotes the deputy-manager of the Tanah Lot Temple Complex, I Wayan Sudiana, who said on Thursday, September 17, 2015 that he has received no formal information on the coming change of management at BNR. All the information on any changes at BNR has been limited to reports in the local and international media.

“If that (a management takeover) is truly the plan, we hope that no frenetic discothèque will be added at the complex,” said Sudiana.

Sudiana said that the original environmental and community impact study done when the BNR was originally built pledged that there would be no activities at the complex after dark in deference to the adjacent sacred Tanah Lot Temple.

Sudiana said he hoped the present situation would be preserved by any new manager of the BNR complex, ensuring that no clamorous activities are scheduled in the evening. Adding: “The current facilities have a golf course that operates from morning to night. Then, at night, there is no frenetic activity taking place. We hope that this peaceful atmosphere will be preserved in plans to build an integrate tourism complex.”

When quizzed about rules governing development set backs from holy temples, Sudiana said this was already addressed in the original community impact study.

As a neighbor of the BNR, Sudiana said they were positively disposed to reported plans to enhance the development of the area by Donald Trump, providing no negative impact was inflected on the surrounding community.

Following Public Outrage about a Same-Sex Wedding in Bali, Governor Asks Non-Hindus Not to Use Hindu Religious Rites in Marriage Celebrations

Kompas.com reports that Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika has announced plans to tighten regulation of the Island’s wedding organizers following a wave of protests precipitated by coverage of a same-sex wedding at a well-known 5-star Ubud Hotel on Saturday, September 12, 2015,

The pictures posted on Facebook and since removed showed two men undergoing a religious ceremony performed by a man dressed as a Balinese Hindu Priest.

Subsequent reports from the hotel where the ceremony took place said the two men, one of who was an Indonesian and the other an American, had already undergone a legal wedding in the United States and the ceremony in Bali was merely a tradition Balinese blessing and cleansing.

“In my opinion, this needs to be regulated, especially as regards Wedding Organizers. Feel free to use the atmosphere of Bali as the background, but don't disturb Bali’s religion. For atmosphere use gamelan music, dances – that’s OK. But please don’t touch on matters connected to our religious beliefs,” said Pastika, explaining his reaction the alleged gay wedding.

Governor Pastika, who once served as Bali’s Chief of Police, reminded event organizers (EO) and wedding organizers (WO) must understand there are limits that must be honored. Hotel Owners, according to the Governor, must also know which activities can be carried out at their hotels that will not detract from local peace and good order.

“EO’s have to know. WO’s have to know. So must the hotels. If it is just a celebration, then don’t use a Hindu Priest (pemangku). Don’t use traditional religious offerings. Don't have a Balinese lead the celebration. Everyone needs to know this. I very much regret that this ceremony took place in Ubud,” said Pastika.

The two men have reportedly already left Bali on the next leg of their honeymoon.

Bali police continue to investigate the matter to determine if any violation of the law took place.

By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Full Moon Yoga on the Banks of Bali’s Ayung River at Four Seasons Resort Sayan

The Balinese have long drawn emotional and religious inspiration from the full moon, the day reserved each month to make musical and ritual offerings at local temple anniversary.

In keeping with the special nuances provided by the appearance of each new full moon, the Four Seasons Resort at Sayan in Ubud offers the unique experience of performing Moon Salutations on a river-edge wooden platform surrounded by rice fields and the lush Sayan Valley forest.

Perched on the banks of the sacred Ayung River at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, the new Dharma Shanti River Terrace provides a breathtaking open-air venue to extend upon the resort’s uplifting wellbeing and yoga programs, with dynamic new classes. A highlight of this is the Full Moon ‘Purnama’ Yoga, a first for Bali in a spectacular river-edge setting, under the glow of the full moon and twinkling stars.

“Every full moon, or ‘purnama’, is a sacred day in Bali, when Balinese-Hindus honor ancestral gods and thank them for their protection with offerings and ceremonies across the island,” said Luisa Anderson, regional director of spa for Four Seasons Resorts. “This is intended to counter negative forces and replenish our vital energy. Our new Full Moon Yoga program is inspired by the uplifting energy of this important day on the Balinese calendar, enabling guests to honor the 'yin' or divine feminine side with Moon Salutations, to counterbalance the 'yang' or masculine nature of classical Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) of day yoga.”

Moon Salutations are believed to cool-down fiery impulses and ‘hot’ emotions, allowing creative energy to flow. The first Full Moon Yoga was held on August 29th, and the program now continues at 7.30 pm on each full moon: 28 September, 27 October, 26 November, and 25 December - Christmas Day. Sessions are complimentary for in-house guests of the Four Seasons Resorts Bali, while non-resident guests are welcome to join in at a rate of Rp 300,000 ++ per person.

Also a tranquil venue for private meditation sessions, the River Terrace follows the recent launch of the 100% bamboo Dharma Shanti Yoga Bale, located just across the rice fields, where guests are offered a dynamic series of wellness activities. Yoga classes at the bale include Bali’s first certified AntiGravity® Yoga, created and founded by former gymnast and dancer Christopher Harrison; Laughter Yoga; as well as complimentary Sunrise, Power or Hatha Yoga. The resort’s resident Wellness Mentor, Ibu Fera, leads the popular Life Talk series that guides guests towards inner peace, happiness, stress management and compassion.

In addition to the resort’s weekly well being program, it also offers an exclusive series of international yoga masters-in-residence, with the next ‘yoga masters to the stars’ featuring Summer Dien (October 5-10 and October 12-17) and Faye Riches (November 9-21). The visiting masters bring their own individual styles for guests to further develop their own practice, complementing the resort’s own classes.

Dharma Shanti Yoga Bale -- whose name means ‘path to peace’ in Sanskrit -- is nestled in a quiet corner of the resort surrounded by lush forest at the bottom of the Sayan Valley, with views over rice fields to the fast-flowing Ayung River.

Growing Indian Travel to Indonesia
Free Visas and Direct Flights Could Make Indian Arrivals to Indonesia Surge to More than a Quarter-Million

In order to stimulate more travel from India the Indonesian government is working to establish direct flights between the two countries supported by visa-free access.

Plans to increase tourism links between Indonesia and Indonesia were discussed in Kuta, Bali by Listyowati - the director for South Asia and Middle Asia from the Indonesian Department of Foreign Affairs, and Taufik Nurhidayat – deputy director of the Ministry of Tourism on Friday, September 18, 2015,

Quoted by Beritabali.com, Listyowati said: “We are pushing for direct flights to India. We have invited airlines and transportation ministry officials to uncover the potential for stronger flows of travel.”

Listyowati said she hoped that India would be given a free-visa-on-arrival, joining the growing list of nations enjoying that facility. She also expressed the wish that airlines would seek to serve direct flights from India to Bali using either Garuda Indonesia or Batik Air.

Speaking on behalf of the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, Taufik, estimated  that direct flights and free-visas for Indian visitors to Indonesia would bring more than 250,000 Indian travelers to Indonesia.

Current reports confirm that Indian travelers will be issued free visas on arrival starting from October 2015.

The Ministry views Indian travelers as having a middle class to upper class demographic, capable of high daily average spends of as much as US$3,000.

Taufik added: “On the average, Indian travelers will stay one week in Indonesia. At this time Indians prefer to holiday in the U.K. or America. Indian travelers are current very attracted to water sports, while Indonesia has many water sports options available to tourist visitors.

Tanah Lot: Believe it or Not
Bali X Files: Myths and Superstitions Linked to Bali’s Iconic Tanah Lot Temple

Believed to trace its roots back to its building in the 16th-century Dang Hyang Niratha Dynasty – Pura Tanah Lot sits on a pinnacle of land surrounded by the Indian Ocean a stone’s throw from shore. Local lore says that King Naratha once slept on the island, decreeing after his stay that it should become a place of worship dedicated to the Lord of the Sea – Dewa Baruna.

Connected by a landbridge to the mainland prior to a massive 1919 earthquake, Tanah Lot is one of seven sacred sea temples that dot the coast of Bali.

Myths Connected with Tanah Lot

Gathered from The Bali Post and other source, there are a number of interesting fables, myths and folklore embraced by locals worth sharing,
  • Many believe that if you bring your romantic interest to Tanah Lot the relationship is doomed to soon end.
  • Conversely, couples that have formally married and started a family seem unaffected by the threat of a breakup.
  • Pregnant or menstruating woman are considered “unclean” and must not visit the temple. Local legend contends that the natural land bridge that once connected the Temple to the shore crumbled into the sea when a menstruating woman tried to cross from the shore to Tanah Lot.
  • Water drank from a source at the temple’s base is considered to bring good fortune.
  • Venomous Sea Snakes found on the nearby shore line, and believed to the living embodiment of King Niratha’s sash (selendang), are said to make the short migration each evening through the water to spend the night guarding the temple. 


An Unnecessary Death
Rabies Claims a Woman in North Bali Who Was Refused VAR Vaccine in July

DenPost reports the latest human death linked to the rabies outbreak as a woman trader, Kadek Dwi Antari (32) from Sawan in North Bali who died at the Buleleng General Hospital on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 2:00 pm.

A dog reportedly bit the woman on July 16. 2015, while visiting the night market in Sawan in the company of her husband and three children. Chased by a stray dog, Kadek was bitten while trying to frighten the dog away with a rolled up newspaper.

After being bitten on the right leg by the dog in the encounter, a frantic search for scarce VAR vaccine commenced. The Sanglah Hospital’s stock of VAR was depleted at the time. A further search for vaccine from the Gerokgak Health Center was unsuccessful after being told she would only qualify for the vaccine if the dog could be captured so the animal could be confirmed as infected by the rabies virus prior to being granted the use of VAR vaccine.

Unable to find the stray dog, the woman had to content herself with the ineffective treatment of a thorough cleaning of the wound.

On Thursday, September 17th the woman began to display clinical symptoms of rabies that required her hospitalization prior to her death only three days later.


Why Tourists Avoid Besakih Temple
More than Half Who Visit Bali’s Most Sacred Temple Complain of a Negative Experience at the Hands of Aggressive Guides and Traders

Half of the people who visit Bali’s sacred Mother Temple
Of Pura Besakih are reporting their disappointment via social media.

“As much as 55% of tourist visiting the Besakih complex are complaining about the experience. This information is from 'Trip Advisor,'" explained the chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) for Karangasem, I Wayan Tama on Monday, September 14, 2015.

While visitor have endless praise for the inspiring views and sacred setting of Bali’s most religious site, they have little regard for the treatment they must endure or how visits to the sacred site are organized.

Because of the failure of Pura Besakih to compete in terms of the visitor experience with other leading tourism sites around the world, Tama, who also serves a member of the Karangasem House of Representative (DPRD-Karangasem), is calling for the urgent formation of a Besakih Management Board being considered by the Besakih Community and the Regency of Karangasem. “In my opinion,” says Tama, “the Management Board will be able to address the complaints of tourist visitors.”

He warned that the formation of the planned Management Board should not be solely about profit. The profit, he promised, will come when Besakih is properly managed.

Contacted separately, the head of the Culture and Tourism Department for Karangasem, I Wayan Purna, did not deny that many visiting tourists are finding their visit to Besakih an unsatisfactory experience. Moreover, he said that the problems plaguing Besakih are of long standing.  Adding, “The object is excellent, but there are a number of problems that give rise to complaints.”

When asked to elucidate, Purna mentioned aggressive traders who prey on visitors and illegal guides who coerce “tips” from tourists. He explained that this behavior is also found even among registered guides who are not ashamed to be extorting tourists.
