A planned resort area
Nusa Dua, is situated on the southeastern tip of Bali. In the
early 1980s, the Suharto government and its associates in the
Indonesian military realized that it would be advantageous to get
hold of an area of the fast developing tourist industry in Bali.
To host international events at the highest level and to offer
sufficient security for visiting foreign dignitaries, they
developed this area where drinking water is safe and electricity
supply is regular.
In the land of Nusa Dua many large American-style hotel complexes
have been built and the development scheme released for business
in the end of April 1986 when President Ronald Reagan arrived at
Nusa Dua for a regional economic conference.
