A late night fire on Saturday, December 29, 2001, destroyed the restaurant and kitchen of the Hotel Istana Rama on Bali's Kuta Beach.
The fire, which started sometime after 1 a.m. was contained to the kitchen and restaurant area of the hotel, which were completely destroyed. The fire did not spread to the adjoining lobby area. Although running near 100% occupancy during the holiday season, no injuries to guests or staff occurred as a result of the fire.
Mr. Philip Hill, General Manager of the Hotel, confirmed to Bali Update that alternative dining arrangements are being made for the hotel's guests and the property continues to operate. Contractors were brought to the hotel on the morning immediately after the fire to commence design work for the damaged area's reconstruction that the owners are optimistic can be completed in 6 weeks.
