Government Issues 3rd Warning to Bali's Anantara Hotel for Violating Local Zoning Height Restrictions.


(1/17/2009)

Bali Post reports that the new Anantara hotel/apartment complex on Jalan Camplung Tanduk in Kuta's Seminyak area is facing problems with local building authorities for ignoring local building codes.

According to the paper, zoning authorities delivered what is traditionally a third and final "warning" to the builders on February 12, 2008, for violating height requirements and deviating from the building plans submitted to and approved by the government for the project.

The head of the Building authority Cipta Karya, I Ketut Suwandi, confirmed to the Bali Post on April 11th that violations have occurred and that his office has asked that those sections of the new luxury apartment/hotel complex that violate the rules be removed. Explaining the violations, Suwandi said that on the drawings the uppermost part of the structure is depicted as a roofing structure when, in reality, this area is now a public area with its own roof effectively turning a four-storey building into a five-storey Structure.

Despite discussions with the building owners in which the owners pledged to remedy the top storey of the building, these discussion did not include a specific deadline for the modification to be completed.

A member of the regional house of representatives for Badung (DPRD-Badung), I Wayan Disel Astawa, told the Bali Post that local regulations are very clear on the point that no building should exceed 15 meters in height. Astawa called on the government not to be intimidated by any powerful backers of a new project and to strictly enforce the building code.

Pushing the Design Envelope?

The current conflict between the new Bali Resort and local building authorities give a sadly ironic twist to the property's boast contained in a press release of having "pushed the design envelope" in developing the new resort on Seminyak beach.

It's now unclear how investors who have purchased accommodation shares in the managed hotel complex or guests booked the property will be affected by the government's demand that the roof-top terrace bar be removed.

Current building codes permit local authorities to close and suspend the operations of business found to be in gross violation of the rules.
