Quoting the head of the Regency's Hotel and Restaurant Association, NusaBali reports that 131 hotels in the Regency of Karangasem have ceased operations because of the sudden downturn in commercial and tourist travel to the Regency that is home to the active Mount Agung volcano. A number of hotels are now providing employment for only 15 days per month as an alternative to terminating their hotel workers.

The chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Karangasem (PHRI-Karangasem), I Wayan Tama, confirmed he has received reports that around 65% (131 hotels) of the 203 hotels in Karangasem have closed in the wake of the eruption of Mount Agung. Among the remaining hotels still in operation continue to serve tourist visitors to the Regency.
In a statement that was immediately rejected by the hotels mentioned, Wayan Tama said a number of starred hotels in Karangasem have suspended operations, including the Amankila Hotel and Alila Hotel in Manggis.  Adding, “Only cleaning and security staffs are standing by at the hotels during the closure. Many hotels are also operating only 15 days per month.”
The Chief of Engineering at the Amankila Hotel, I Nengah Jati, vociferously rejected the PHRI chairman’s claim that the Amankila is closed. “Who said we are closed? This is the proof that we are still operating – out hotel is employing 207 employees,” said Jati.
When called Amankila on Sunday, December 10, 2017, a hotel operator confirmed that the property remained open but had no guests at the moment. She also confirmed that general cleaning was underway and bookings were being received for December 18th and beyond for the coming holiday period.
Another call to the Front Desk of the Alila Manggis confirmed that  hotel reopened on December 2nd and was still receiving guests in both restaurants and bookings for hotel rooms.
The Human Resource Manager at the Hotel Alila, Ni Ketut Suseni, also denied via the press reports from the local PHRI chairman that the hotel was closed. “Indeed, we closed from November 26-30, 2017, to clean and remove volcanic dust. After that the hotel was open as normal,” she said.
