KUPANG, NNC - Former world soccer player David Beckham and his family visit Nihiwatu, considered as the best hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine in West Sumba Regency, East Nusa Tenggara.
West Sumba Regent Agustinus Niga Dapawole said that the former Manchester United player arrived at Tambolaka Airport, Southwest Sumba on Thursday afternoon.
"Yes, that is true. Beckham and his entire family are currently staying at Nihiwatu," he said, Thursday (8/8/2018).
The presence of David Beckham with his family in West Sumba was known after a number of photos circulating on social media which showed that the former England national team player was at Tambolaka Airport.
The Beckham Family’s visit was also acknowledged by the Chairman of the House of Representatives Commission V, Fary Djemi Francis who had the opportunity to visit Nihiwatu and even admitted that he had asked the hotel manager Nihiwatu, Chris about the whereabouts of David Beckham.
Unfortunately Fary admitted that he was not permitted to meet with the former footballer because Beckham was already in a private area.
Manager of Hotel Nihiwatu, Chris said that he could not reveal the whereabouts of David Beckham with his family because it involves the privacy of his guests.
They come here because they need privacy. This is our selling point so we cannot introduce him with all of you, gentlemen," said Chris, as quoted by Antara.
Furthermore, Fary also added that with the arrival of David Beckham the tourism area would be increasingly known to the world, therefore the road infrastructure to the hotel is the main concern of the government.
