When Did Bali Hotel Quack Start?

The first time I stepped on Bali was more than 30 years ago. I was working in the tourism industry and was posted to Bali for one year. I immediately fell in love with this beautiful, friendly, and yet strikingly different island of the gods. I could never forget it!

Before you even step onto this stunning and lush tropical island you can smell its perfume. A sweet fragrance of assorted tropical spices mixed with offerings, flowers and Kretek the Indonesian clove cigarette. It is a whiff of mysticism and each time I arrive in Bali I close my eyes and I smile, it is still there the unmistaken perfume of paradise on earth.

Way back then we professionals discussed the fate of Bali many times and at length. Alin a Frenchman and friend said: “We need to protect the Balinese from the tourists so that their culture will not be destroyed!” After 30 years I am very happy to report that the Balinese religion and culture is alive, thriving and maybe stronger than ever. Tourism has even helped improve or enhance certain aspects by providing jobs and income so that locals can keep their traditions alive.I hope that you enjoy our Bali hotel quack site.

Bali temple procession for Galungan Kuningan

Galungan and Kuningan

April 5-15 2017

Rows and rows of intricately crafted Penjor or bamboo poles with young coconut leaves line the streets. They reach high up into the sky yet humbly lower their head down to earth. It is a celebration of Dharma over Adharma or triumph of good over evil. There are special temple ceremonies and this is the time to see the long processions of beautifully dressed women carrying tall food offerings on their head to the temple. I took this picture many years ago; shoot your own and show us what has changed. Upload your comments and picture here

Why use Ducks Together with Bali?

Ducks have always played an important role in a Balinese farmer’s life. In the olden days driving back to the South from a day excursion in the mountains we would encounter huge flocks of them. Farmers holding long bamboo poles with a white flag on the top were followed by waddling and quacking ducks.

They too were heading home from a day excursion feeding on scrumptious insects in rice fields. Nowadays you can’t see them much along the streets anymore; they are still a favorite souvenir item though, carved from wood and painted in a mixture of colors. They also feature prominently on many restaurant menus.

Who are the quackers?

The Sugiarto family; the originator of this site about hotels in Bali

We are the Sugiarto family, I am Monika the Mom. My flock Tom and Kathy have known and vacationed in Bali throughout their childhood and we all, including Fithri and Azzam Tom's wife and son, feel very much at home there.

Throughout the pages of this site I will take you through the development of Bali. How it has grown from a - two tourist beaches destination - to the magnitude of locations and accommodations it now offers. The kids will talk more on the modern, new and fashionable aspect expected by young guests and families.

Bali is still Bali and it is very much established in the 21st century. Please come back often to see the updates we made to Bali Hotel Quack!
