of tsunami.Apparently, the entireappointment process for PT TirtaRahmat Bahari did not include anopen and competitive invitation fordeclarations of interest or acompetitive selection process.The negotiation andagreement were alsoundertaken with noconsultation of the BaliProvincial House ofRepresentatives (DPRD-Bali).The lack of transparencyand pre-consultation with thelegislative branch is promptingcalls from some quarters forthe permit granted to PT TirtaRahmat Bahari to be revokedto ensure that the mangroveforest of South Bali is carefullyconserved.In rebuttal, Wiranatha said:“Those areas that are empty oftrees at the Ngurah Rai MangroveForest will be used by the companyfor tourism services such ascanoes, fishing ponds and alike.These facilities will notfundamentally change thecharacter of the land. The existingtourism infrastructure, such astrekking trails, will be preserved andimproved."He emphasized that the jointuse under the agreement will allowa sharing of profits, which will bespecified later under a joint ventureagreement.
He also claims that PT TirtaRahmat Bahari, contrary to reportsin the press, has yet to constructanything within the protectedmangrove forest.Wiranatha said that themangrove areas was under thecomplete control of the provincialgovernment of Bali and that PT TirtaRahmat Bahari had been given apermit to establish a nature tourismenterprise in the Ngurah RaiMangrove Forest measuring102.22 hectares.Defending the province'sdecision in making theappointment, Wiranatha said thatthe company and the permitsgranted met all technical, judicial,conceptual, ecological and culturalcriteria.The large tract of mangroveforests stretching from Sanur toTanjung Benoa is viewed asenvironmentally critical, importantto the cycle of sea life and as astrategic defense against the threat

Growing Controversy Over55 Year Lease of South Bali'sProtected Mangrove Forest
There are growing questionsregarding licenses granted by theprovince of Bali to a privatecompany to develop SouthBali's protected mangroveforest area.The provincialgovernment of Bali is denyingpress reports that it hassurrendered control of an102.22-hectare tract ofmangrove forest to a privateinvestor.Quoted by theIndonesian National PressAgency Antara, the head of theforestry department of Bali, IGede Nyoman Wiranatha, denied,that PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari nowcontrolled the mangrove forestareas of south Bali, arguing that thecompany had only been issuedwith a principle permission to use10% of the total mangrove (102.22hectare) for the development oftourism services for 55 years.“That which will bedeveloped for tourism services andinfrastructure will not be more than10% of the entire block of land usedby PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari. This isin accordance with the rules.Meanwhile, the entire mangroveforest areas measures 1,373hectares and the area under permitare in the block designated fordevelopment',” explainedWiranatha

Kuta is nestled between Jl. Bakungsari to the south and Jl. Melastito the north.
Kuta is the best known of all the villages in Bali, often maligned,but loved by many. Kuta gets its so called bad reputation from the earlydays of travel to Bali where everybody, particularly the young crowd,hung out and got wrecked. Footpaths didn't exist, open drains ran downthe side of unmade roads. Shopping was sarongs and T-shirts andhawkers who sold just about anything.Times have changed and Kuta has grown up, gone are theunmade roads and open drains. Footpaths, although narrow, run bothsides of the main streets. The hawkers are still there - part of thecharacter of the place.Sarongs and T-shirts are still sold but now there are CD shops,boutiques, small trendy bars and restaurants and even DepartmentStores. Kuta boasts the world's first "themed" Hard Rock Hotel.Imagine going into a huge one level shopping centre that wouldtake about 45 minutes to walk from one end to the other with smallwalkways branching off in every direction, now add cars, motorbikesand the odd temple ceremony. This is what the middle of Kuta is likeexcept it doesn't have a roof. Just find a small café (Warung), sit backand watch, it's great!The hawkers in Kuta can be aggressive, but if you don't want tobuy - don't make eye contact. Don't say anything and there willgenerally be no problems.The beach at Kuta is wide and usually has good surf in the lateafternoon. Kuta beach isn't really a place to sit if you don't like crowds.In keeping with the Kuta theme, it is more of a social occasion,where you meet the locals and other tourists and you don't have tomove for anything - the hawkers will bring it to you. Late afternoon isbest about 3 - 4pm, sunsets, soccer games, and just a great place for awalk.If being involved and having everything close by; if you want toparty or just shop, Kuta is the place. Even if you don't stay there, don't gohome without visiting Kuta at least once, maybe twice... three times?

Jimbaran is just south of the airport and Kuta.This was formerly a real backwater of south Bali, just atiny fishing village with a daily market. That all started tochange in the 1980s and Jimbaran is now home toseveral world class 5 star beach resorts, plus a few moremoderate mid-market hotels.There is however little in the way of budgetaccommodation and there are also many high-end villasin this area, particularly on the ridges of high groundabove Jimbaran Bay. This has resulted in monikers suchas the "Beverly Hills of Bali" or "Millionaire's Row".The bay itself has a pleasant white sand beachand is very safe for swimming. The three clusters ofgrilled seafood restaurants on the beach are a majortourist draw in the evenings, as is the truly stunningsunset.Jimbaran is also home to a Norwegian University,Gateway College, with around 500 students studyingathletics, philosphy, culture, economics and journalism.The school is located in Kedonganan close to SariSegara Resort and in Jl, Bantas Kau where it also has asmall cafe.Jimbaran has an increasing number of ratherchic shops but there is little or no nightlife here. It has theadvantage of being a little closer to Kuta and Seminyakand the cultural highlights of Central Bali.
