Dec 14, 2006

The Indonesian government has banned a Dutch documentary from an international film festival because it shows statements by one of the Bali bombers on death row for the 2002 attack. "The film was deemed too controversial because it contains statements of Imam Samudra," Jakarta International Film Festival program manager Lalu Roisamri told AFP on THursday.Samudra and his comrades Amrozi and Ali Ghufron face the firing squad over their role in the bombings, which killed 202 people.None of the three condemned convicts has expressed remorse over the attacks, which were blamed on the Al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah extremist network."The state censorship agency have not sent a formal letter but they told us verbally that the film cannot be screened," said Roisamri.The agency deemed the film too controversial, he said."Promised Paradise" is a 70-minute documentary about the quest of Agus, a puppeteer, to meet the trio of bombers and discover what their motives were.Dutch filmmaker Leonard Retel Helmrich could not meet the convicts and used clips from a widely distributed illegal DVD of their statements instead.Four films on Aceh and East Timor were banned earlier from the festival on the grounds they could "disturb security".International media watchdog Reporters Without Borders criticised the ban as "outdated censorship".More than 200 films from over 35 countries are being screened at the festival, which ends on December 17.

Le Meridien Nirwana Golf and Spa Resort Bali
Jl. Raya Tanah Lot, Desa Braban, 80361, Tabanan, Bali - Indonesia

LE MERIDIEN NIRWANA GOLF and SPA RESORT OPENS A DEDICATED YOGA and MEDITATION CENTER

Le Meridien Nirwana Golf and Spa Resort in Bali recently opened a dedicated Yoga and Mediation Center on its resort. The sprawling 103-acre resort’s latest feature is intended to enhance the overall holiday experience by adding facilities that are in strong demand while diversifying the product offering. Le Meridien Nirwana is primarily known as Asia’s best golf resort but with the continuing product diversification the hotel is now in an excellent state to re-position the resort as a life style resort, comprising of the five star Le Meridien Hotel, the 18 hole Greg Norman designed Golf course as well as time-share units and a large Spa. The Yoga and Meditation center is complemented by a Health and Spa restaurant that caters to health conscious customers; mainly light fare, freshly squeezed juices, herbal teas and salads.

Dietmar Kielnhofer, the resort General Manager says: "There are not many resorts in the world that can boast a dedicated Yoga and Meditation center on its grounds. With 21 treatment rooms, an Asia bath, and an exercise pool under construction we are striving to position the resort as "Asia’s Premier lifestyle" destination. Exceeding guest expectations – in terms of product and service - should become a characteristic hallmark of our brand. Bali is known as the ultimate Spa Destination in Asia and has over 250 registered Spas.

What we don’t want is to be known as, is another commodity in an overbuilt and highly fragmented market without character and personality. Trends change but our commitment to innovate and give our customers an exciting product is part of our long-term competitive strategy – if we do not evolve along with market trends then we are simply left behind. Our emphasis is on creating a "once in a life time" emotional experience that is unique to Nirwana and evokes strong memories. In an industry where product differentiation and uniqueness is instrumental to long-term success, we will have an excellent opportunity to create our own niche market – the ultimate life style resort".

About Le Méridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort The multiple awarding-winning Le Méridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort is just minutes from town, yet in a world of its own. Surrounded by emerald rice fields and over-looking the sacred Tanah Lot Hindu temple, it offers a taste of the true Bali.
