Nice pictures!

There are Pandanus, Crinum asiaticum, Codiaeum, Delonix regia, an Alpinia, maybe A. zerumbet, Plumeria, an Euphorbia, a crossbreed of Hibiscua schizopetalus with H. rosa-sinensis, Artocarpus (the famous breadtree of the Bounty) and a lot of other tropical ornamentals to be seen on those pictures. Well I have spend a lot of time and travels in tropical areas so those plants are familiar to me.

The next photo I thought was a miniature Phoenix canariensis_CIDP but in bali they call this tree a crocodile tree as it's trunk is like the back of a crocodile and it's wood is a yellowey white colour and is very light, but not as light as bosa wood.
This is a clearer picture of the top growth of the crocodile tree the trunk is in another photo yet to be put on show.

Another ginger name unknown, I had to take it on full zoom as it was at the back of a bed that I could not get to, so I hope it helps to identify it?
