Tourists polled, their favourite hotels, restaurants, malls, and holiday destinations in Indonesia.
The Indonesia Tourism Awards (ITA) 2010 were announced in early December, the awards organised by the Department of Tourism and SWA business magazine, and not to be confused with intense rivals Indonesia Travel Tourism Awards.
Between 16th August-14th October 2010 1,619 tourists were polled, 1,470 Indonesians and 149 foreigners in 25 towns and regencies, with the results gathered through focus group discussions and questionnaires.

Favourite Golf Course
1. Denpasar, Bali

If so there must be hidden treasures in the otherwise congested shithole called Denpasar.
Favourite Hotel – 5 star
1.Shangrila Hotel, Jakarta
2.Sheraton Hotel, Jakarta
3.J.W Marriott Hotel, Jakarta
There are two Sheraton hotels in Jakarta:
1. Sheraton Bandara Hotel (next to Soekarno-Hatta airport)
2. Sheraton Media Hotel (in Central or North Jakarta)
Which hotel won the award – 1 or 2, or both?
No idea Chris, it was announced as ‘Hotel Sheraton’, which I’m assuming meant in Jakarta, probably the central one.
It couldn’t be that run down, unreliable Sheraton Bandara (airport), that’s a shocker for a supposed star hotel. Sanur Beach…UGH!!
