A regulation introduced by the Regent of Badung on June 3, 2014 (Perbup 36/2014) is poised to have a major effect on how hotels are built in Kuta in the that regency of Bali.
The new regulations require hotels in the densely developed areas of Kuta to have a plot of no less that one-half hectare (50 are or 5,000 square meters). For projects planned in North Kuta the minimum project site increases to three-quarters of a hectare (75 ares or 7,500 square meters). Meanwhile, in South Kuta the minimal lot size for a hotel is one-hectare.
The new rules came into force on August 1, 2014, but will not apply retroactively to hotels or projects already in operation or in possession of a building permit.
The same regulation strengthens existing rules on minimum coefficients for open gardens and minimal parking spaces .
The Bandung Regency's record on enforcement against hotels violating zoning and building codes is poor with at least one branded hotel operating in Kuta without a building permit or an operating license.
