NusaBali is blaming coming legislative elections in Bali for the downturn in tourists to Lake Batur and Kintamani.

Since the dawn of the New Year, tourist numbers visiting the cool caldera community at Kintamani to view Lake Batur and the still-active Mt. Batur volcano have been on the decline.

Local observers are blaming the downturn on the legislative campaign culminating in an election on April 9, 2014. Visitors to the area during the period January-February 2014 are estimated to be down 15-20% when compared to the same period in 2013.

The chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Bangli (PHRI-Bangli), Ketut Putranata, said on Thursday, March 13, 2014 that the downturn in visitors is linked to safety and security concerns surrounding the coming legislative elections on April 9th and presidential elections on July 9th.

Putranata is pessimistic that Nyepi celebrations in Kintamani will do much to help rebuild visitor totals to the volcanic mountain area.

Putranata, who is also an owner of the Lakeview Hotel in Kintamani, believes bookings will start to rebuild after the successful completion of the April 9th legislative elections.
