Following a few beers with his Balinese partner on Friday, Perth man Clinton James Dally complained of a headache, took a Panadol and called it a day, WA Today reported. The next day, authorities said Mr Dally had to cut short a visit to Kuta Art Market after experiencing stomach pains.


Dally’s partner asked staff at the Matahari Bungalow property to call for medical assistance when he fell unconscious, but the doctor who arrived on the scene declared the 36-year-old dead.


"We have done an investigation at the hotel room," Kuta Police chief Nyoman Wirajaya told media.


"The room is neat. We do not find any violence or crime in this case. The doctor alleged that the victim died because of a heart attack."


The Australian’s girlfriend, 29, said they had been together for around three months, and to her knowledge he had been healthy.


A Kuta police photo of the hotel room shows a whiskey bottle, some Panadol and Berocca, a carton of cigarettes, and a phone, wallet and smart tablet sitting on a table.


Authorities are investigating the incident, while The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to Mr Dally's family.
