The Anantara Resort Seminyak and its reluctance to confirm with local building and zoning rules continues to be in the news with reports appearing over the past week in both The Jakarta Post and Bali Post. Those reports cover the lack of action in removing its roof-top structures, despite repeated promises to do so from the Resort's management and owners.
As reported previously, the beach side resort stands a full three-meters higher than the stipulated maximum of 15 meters.
The Anantara Resort promised Badung officials on September 28, 2008, that the "Sunset on Six" bar and luxury accommodation on what was to be the building's roof would be dismantled.
While the bar closed temporarily, it has recently resumed business. The Resort's General Manager, Ivan Casadevall, told The Jakarta Post, "this rooftop matter is being handled directly by the owner, who is in close consultation with the government to solve the matter."
Meanwhile, the Bali Post quoted the regional government who insisted that the order for demolition of the top floor would eventually be carried out, no matter what.
