May I take a minute to tell you about my utter revulsion and request for everyone to boycott a new expose web site for Indonesia called Fugly Bali.
I have been a Balifile for years and really do not appreciate people running Bali down in such a way. I am pretty sure I know the person behind this anti-Balinese site, and think he deserves all he is going to get for naming certain parties.
For example, this Fugly Bali site has named all of the Suharto family's hotels in Bali and accused them of killing 100,000 Balinese in one year alone. Maybe Suharto did (so what, I like his style), but what a dumb thing to them name his family's hotels (Amanusa Resort Nusa Dua Bali,
Bali Cliff Resort,
Intercontinental Hotel Jimbaran Bay Bali,
Four Seasons Resort Hotel Jimbaran Bay Bali,
Four Seasons Resort Hotel Sayan Ubud Bali,
Lor In Resort Hotel Bali,
Nikko Resort Nusa Dua Bali,
Nusa Dua Beach Resort Bali,
Ramada Bintang Resort Kuta Bali,
Imperial Royal Seminyak Hotel Bali,
Sahid Raya Kuta Beach Bali,
Sanur Paradise Plaza Bali Radisson Resort, and
Westin Resort Hotel Nusa Dua Bali).
If the owner(s) of Fugly Bali were not dumb enough for naming Suharto's hotels in Bali Indonesia, they were absolutely crazy to expose certain wrong doings of important family and even Indonesian government owned hotels such as Hotel Padma Legian Beach Bali,
Grand Bali Beach Sanur,
Hard Rock Kuta Bali, and
Le Meridien Nirwana Bali.
But then, they go and "name and shame" one of the most respected families on Bali for making eath threats (via their hotel group Waka Holdings AKA Waka Experience Bali who own Waka Shorea Resort Hotel Bali,
Waka di Ume Ubud Bali,
Waka Gangga Resort Hotel Bali,
Waka Maya Resort Hotel,
Waka Nusa Resort Hotel Bali and
Waka Namya Resort Hotel Ubud Bali). Bali Nuts or what?!
Then, if all that was not enough, they put up pictures of the chief of police and call his officers the "Bali Mafia Police". I think this page Bali Police Corruption In Indonesia will cost Fugly Bali their lives!
I love Bali and admit I am 100% selfish and do not want others like Fugly Bali spoiling it for me. You see, I am a social outcast in Australia and elsewhere, but people call me Mr. Butkus (yes, that really is my name) in Bali. And I do not need the bread and butter of Bali, that is Bali Hotels and Bali Travel Agents being exposed in this way.
Please do not listen to Fugly Bali.
