MEDIA STATEMENT: LEGIONNAIRES DISEASE
This announcement is hereby issued by the Rama Hotels and Resorts Bali on the above captioned subject.
In the past weeks the Australian Media has highlighted that among those who had contracted the Legionnaires Disease, some had resided at the Ramayana Resort & Spa, Bali and singled us out as a resort to refrain when visiting Bali.
We at Rama Hotels and Resorts willfully contest this claim and hereby present to the media, our business partners and our Australian customers that we are completely cleared and NEVER was in anyway involved in the outbreak of the Legionnaires Disease. Certification attached from the Department of Health, Bali and independent testing proves that we are disease free.
We had in fact invited the Department of Health and Ageing (Australia) to visit our Resorts here in Bali and conduct the necessary test. But they have chosen not to respond to our humble request to this date.
We will vehemently oppose any parties who associate us to the Legionnaires Disease and will not hesitate to proceed legal action if need be.
