The Locals Are Not Giving Up Teluk Benoa. The fight between Governor Mangku Pastika and the voice of the people regarding the reclamation plan of Tanjung Benoa has been going on for quite some time now.

With 50 more 800+ rooms hotels predicted to be constructed by 2017 and Indonesia’s President urging to increase tourism numbers on the island.
