Garuda Indonesia responds to Western Australia’s demand for Bali by adding new aircraft to the route
July 31st, 2008

Garuda Indonesia will place the newly delivered Boeing 737-800 Next Generation series aircraft on the Perth Bali route from 18 August, 2008.

This move is in direct response to the resurgence in tourism to Bali from Western Australia. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the state recorded a 75% growth in holiday makers travelling to Indonesia in the first quarter of 2008.

From 18 August, Garuda Indonesia will add another daily service to the two flights that are currently operating daily (except Wednesday). And, from 3rd September, an additional Wednesday service will bring the total operation from Perth to Bali to triple daily, providing a growth in capacity of 61.5%.

This is in addition to four direct flights per week to Jakarta from Perth.

The daily flight commencing 18 August, GA725, will depart Perth at 1425 arriving in Bali at 1810. This will give West Australians the option of a mid afternoon flight to add to the daily morning flight which departs at 0715 (GA727), and the six times weekly evening flight GA729 departing at 1715.

Garuda Indonesia’s General Manager WA, Mr. Iskandar Basro said, “Western Australians have had an ongoing love affair with Bali for years, prompted by great value packages and a strengthening Australian dollar. The word is out that there is no other place in the world where you can holiday in luxury for such great prices.”

“The addition of a further 1248 seats by 3 September should go a long way to ensuring that Western Australians can continue this romance. “

The capacity increase from the West Coast follows Garuda Indonesia’s announcement last month of an additional 1013 seats per week being added to East Coast Australian routes to Bali by 3 September.

For further details Garuda Indonesia reservations can be contacted on 1300 365 330.

Novus Taman Bebek formerly Taman Bebek Villas
Sayan,, 80571, Ubud, Bali - Indonesia

Novus Taman Bebek

The story of Taman Bebek dates back to 1944, when American musicologist Colin McPhee built a Balinese house and beautiful garden on the edge of the ridge above the magnificent Ayung River valley. During the 1930s this area was the playground of many international stars — such as Margaret Mead, Barbara Hutton and Betty Waterson.

In 1980, when landscape artist and writer Made Wijaya acquired the land, only the foundations of these houses remained – the view, however, was still magnificent and unspoiled.

A number of cottages, approximating the scale and layout of the original pavilions, were slowly built. During the years 1985 – 87 these were Made Wijaya’s home. Ten other villas, swimming pools, and a café/library and shop have been added since 1988.

The new villas, all with the lush gardens and views overlooking the river valley, are unique in design and have a tranquil atmosphere. Taman Bebek is a lovely place to soak in the beauty of the Balinese countryside and culture.
