Bali Aims to Become a Medical Tourism Destination
Bali is now aiming to become a prominent medical tourism destination. Bali provincial administration is now constructing a new hospital that will be equipped with world-class facilities in Sanur. The project started last year on 2.95-hectare plot of land in Sanur and is expected to finish this year. The hospital will be able to accommodate 176 inpatients.
The hospital would be equipped with high-standard facilities, including for bariatric surgery. The hospital is also designed as an integrated cancer treatment centre with facilities for radiodiagnostics, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.
A therapy centre for the elderly is also part of the plan. As many pensioners from across the world opt to spend their time in Bali, the hospital is expected to provide a quality service for the elderly. To meet the demand for alternative medicine, the hospital will also contain health spa facilities, a traditional herbal treatment centre and an acupuncture therapy service.

Menjangan Dynasty Resort is the sixth property to be managed by Prime Plaza Hotels & Resorts in Bali and its eleventh property in Indonesia.
Locally known as 'Pesta Kesenian Bali', the Bali Arts Festival, which interestingly takes place from every second Saturday of June to the second Saturday of July, is a yearly celebration of exhibitions and performances of various kinds of artworks and cultural achievements. This year will be its 38th event which will start on 11 June until 9 July 2016.
The opening will be held at Niti Mandala Renon square. Daily performances and exhibitions will be in Denpasar Art Centre, approximately 30 minutes from Bali Dynasty Resort.
On the 25th of June, the Balinese people will celebrate Saraswati Day, a day devoted to Dewi Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge, Art and Literature. To mark this joyous day, books of knowledge, manuscripts and the Vedas are blessed and special offerings are made together with aspirations for knowledge and wisdom. The day is the first in a series of five important religious highlights.
Banyu Pinaruh, 26th of June
Banyu Pinaruh is the immediate day after Saraswati, which falls on Sunday, 26th of June. The morning typically sees Balinese Hindus heading to the nearest beaches either for weekend family leisure and cleansing or purification purposes by bathing in the sea.
Pagerwesi, 29th of June
Pagerwesi is the day when the Balinese strengthen their minds and souls against evil forces. Etymologically Pagerwesi derives from the two Balinese words “pager” and “wesi”, which means fence and iron respectively. The iron fence is a symbol of strong self-protection and on Pagerwesi the Balinese focuses on building a strong personal fortification to ensure that evil doesn't enter their minds, speech and deeds.
In many regions in Bali, Pagerwesi is considered to be a really important holiday which is celebrated excessively in a similar fashion to Galungan Day.
