A Big Plan for Bali
Nov 03, 2006

The Badung government announced this week a wide-ranging plan to develop Bali’s infrastructure and services to world-class levels as part of plan to turn the island into the world’s premier tourist destination by 2011 – dubbed Bali #1 destination 2011. The projects are, an US$87-million upgrade of Ngurah Rai International Airport that will result in a tripling of its current size, including its sole runway; illegal discharge of raw sewage, which has been causing environmental nightmares in recent years, will be aggressively targeted; and the government said it would work to ensure Bali was self-sufficient in electricity and not be overly reliant on frequently interrupted supplies from neighboring Java, as well as managing fresh water supplies that threatens areas of Bali during the dry season. Roads are another area slated for improvement, according to Deputy Regent of Badung Drs. I Ketut Sudikerta. “If we have the proper infrastructure in place, a far bigger airport to handle more passengers and a clean environment, people will come in their droves as all who visit here agree Bali is a special place,” said he. “That’s our goal. We have a lot of work to do but by starting now I really believe by 2011 we can achieve it,” he added. And in a move that is set to revolutionize real-estate in Bali and around the country, a transparent property-registration system is in the works and will soon be unveiled, Sudikerta said. Foreigners investing here will have their property rights registered on a database protecting their investment, and improving all around investor confidence he said, declining to reveal more about the system until later this month. A Bali luxury villa developer – with major developments in Seminyak, Dreamland and elsewhere in the country - has been chosen as the first company to take part in a trial run of the project. C151 Resorts and PT Hanno Bali Director Hanno Soth said that the new measures would take real-estate investment to the next level on the island. “Bali is poised to become the top choice for lifestyle- and retirement-property investment in Asia, and the government, by providing a clear system for foreigners to hold real estate as well as a land-registration system to secure the investors’ interests, is making it very attractive to invest and live in Bali,” he said. After recent setbacks, industry analysts agree and government data shows that Bali is once again back in stride, drawing in much-needed foreign investment as tourist arrivals to the island climb. Despite its past troubles, however, Bali continues, year after year, to be voted the world’s number-one island destination by international travelers – beating out Thailand, Hawaii and the Caribbean, among many others - and this year has been no exception, with the accolades continuing to flow. Gradually, foreign-investor confidence is returning, as evidenced by strong C151 villa sales and by one of the world’s most prestigious hotel brands, Bulgari, just opening the doors to its multimillion-dollar complex. Bali, said Bulgari chief executive officer Francesco Trapani at the opening of the 59-villa property in Uluwatu on the southernmost tip of the island in September, is “one of the most exciting and exclusive destinations in the world, thanks to its natural beauty, rich culture and heritage.”

Where the Bali hell are you?
Nov 01, 2006

A small group of eight Balinese operators have created their own ad campaign, due to frustration with what they perceive as the ongoing inability of the Indonesian and Australian industry players to finalise a Bali revival plan. The fledgling Little Bali Hotel & Resort Company® (LBJRC) enlisted the help of two former Australia-based Garuda Indonesia Colleagues to help launch their own Bali awareness initiative in Australia. The first stage in the campaign is a cheeky, ‘Where the Bali hell are you’ video clip which can be viewed online at The second stage of the campaign comprises of heavily discounted LBHRC member accommodation, to begin next week. The clip was shot on location in Bali and is a multi-million Rupiah campaign that claims that while business from Australia is still down, the rest of the world has begun to flock back to Bali. Brett Morgan, LBHRC co-founder has said that Australians have become noticeable in Bali because of their absence. “The Bali travel market from Australia still, potentially, represents the destination’s biggest source market and revenue,” he said. “There’s much talk of Indonesian government and Australian private sector funding being combined with Australian travel industry support and know-how to help rekindle interest in the destination – but nothing seems to be happening. “LBHRC has been specifically created to address that situation for the smaller operators, the people responsible for Bali’s ‘bread and butter’ business, and as a result, help to get Bali’s tourism infrastructure back on track again. “What we are trying to achieve with the campaign is to underline just exactly what the Australian tourists are missing. Nothing seems to be stopping the Europeans and the north Asians who are lapping up all the bargains this destination has to offer. “It’s the same story in the US where Bali is very top of mind having just been voted ‘World's Best Island’ by Travel & Leisure magazine.” Commenting on the similarities between their campaign and the recent controversial “Where the bloody hell are you?” Australian tourism campaign, Mr Morgan said, “Some might say we’ve taken a bit of a lend of a similar, multi-million dollar international tourism marketing campaign that recently did the rounds. “But that’s not the case. Our campaign cost millions of rupiah – not dollars – and is intended to reignite interest in the destination and give people a laugh at the same time – anyone who has even been to Bali will know exactly what we’re doing here,” he said. The eight hotels that fall under LBHRC membership are the Baleka Beach Resort, Bali Ayu Hotel & Villas, Bali Garden Hotel, Puri Etnik Hotel, Samsara Hotel & Spa, Su's Prince Cottages and Villa Coco.
