Indian Family Caught Stealing Accessories From Bali Hotel, Video Goes Viral

Some of the items recovered from the family's luggage by hotel staff included a bottle of liquid soap towels a mirror and a hairdryer

A video of an Indian family getting caught stealing accessories from a hotel in Bali is taking the internet by storm.

In a now-viral video, a member of the hotel staff can be seen going through the luggage of the family, who were about to leave the premises. "Such an embarrassment for India", the user, named Hemanth, wrote in a tweet to accompany the 2.20-minute clip, which has been viewed over 355,000 times so far. An investigation found items such as hangers, a hairdryer and other hotel accessories from the family's possession. Another woman says they will pay for all the items they 'stole'.

Had the family in Bali, Indonesia, watched ixigo's video about "stuff you can take from hotels" on YouTube, it would have steered clear of the trouble it ran into.

"India must start cancelling passports of people who erode our credibility".

A towel is removed and unwrapped from one of the tourist's backpacks to reveal what appears to be a decorative bottle of liquid soap.


Bali police also said that a housekeeping manager saw the guests throwing items over the villa wall, and this prompted the staff to check their luggage.

One of the hotel staff replies: "I know you have a lot of money but this is no respect".

In an Instagram post on Saturday, police confirmed that the incident took place at the The Royal Purnama hotel in Sukawati.

He added that since Indians were now travelling extensively, a booklet on appropriate behaviour during worldwide travel was necessary.
