Lovina – Bali, 16.5.2016


Recently we had a long time in advance scheduled health check on our dolphins at Dolphin Hotel, Lovina – Bali. Poala Marron, a well known veterinarian Singapore resident stayed in our facility for 2 days to check the health condition of our dolphins and gave some useful and very much appreciated advice to our employees at our dolphin therapy facility. Fortunately there were no major bad health conditions detected but we decided to hire Paola Marron frequently to check the health conditions of our dolphins and give advice for our employees how to treat, feed and train our dolphins in a good way. We thank the MarineLife Animal Management Advisory very much for their kind support and Paola Marron for her professional advice.

The endless story of a new North Bali airport development to boost economy and land prices in the Buleleng regency…

…lasts already since 2007 without any serious actions committed till today.  After several different destinations announced for the new North Bali Airport in the previous years, it seems the final destination of this “fantasy project” is now located in the Kubutambahan area. As reported by NusaBali the governor is about to issue a recommendation for “Dwijendra International Airport” in North Bali:

Bali’s governor Made Pastika is expected to soon issue a recommendation supporting a Canadian Company seeking to build an airport in the North Bali regency of Buleleng.
Pastika said: “I have already received a detailed plan from Airport Kinesis (AKC) which is the most serious proposal I have seen to date. They have conducted a long term survey and are now awaiting supporting recommendations from the provincial government and the regency. These recommendations are one of the requirements needed by the ministry of transportations.”

AKC has completed a prefeasibility study for the development of an airport at Kubutambahan in the Regency of Buleleng. With a supporting recommendation from the Province of Bali it is expected that AKC will undertake a more detailed plan for what would become Bali’s second international airport.

The province of Bali is hopeful that the proposed airport of the North could be funded by the private sector, as Central Government is no longer considered possible National priorities now focused on development in Eastern Indonesia and border areas.

With estimates for developing the ew airport put at IDR 30 Trillion, the provincial government of Bali views such cost as outside the limits of Bali’s funding capabilities.

AKC has presented a plan for the airport – nominated to be called the “Dwijendra International Airport” on reclaimed land in an offshore location at Kubutambahan.
