All the Best Westerns End in a Showdown

Angry and Their Patience at an End, Badung Regency Officials say Bali's Best Western Resort Kuta is Now Officially Closed.

Denpost reports that the Badung regional government in Bali has declared its tolerance is at an end with the scofflaw behavior of the  Best Western Kuta Resort and has ordered the hotel to stop receiving future bookings now that a formal closure order has been issued.

Possibly responding to criticism from local lawmakers and legitimate hotel operators that the enforcement agency of Badung is little more than a "toothless tiger," the chief of the Pamong Praja police, Ketut Mertha, asserted that Saturday, May 7, 201, was the absolute final deadline for the hotel to stop doing business. Mertha further warned that if the Hotel continues to ignore his orders he will bring a team to forcibly lock down the premises.

Challenged on the fate of guests still staying at the hotel, Mertha said he is beyond caring about guests when the hotel was told weeks ago to stop receiving new bookings.

The General Manager of the Hotel, Tommy Santoso, has reportedly met with Mertha and committed the hotel's willingness to comply to the closure order and close its doors.

The hotel was ordered by Badung's regent A.A. Gede Agung to cease operations on April 28, 2011, but continued to receive new guests accept bookings via its official website.

Ruminating on the situation, Denpost says it's difficult to determine if the government is being weak or if the Best Western's owner, Wayan Wijana, is being disrespectful to the Authorities. The newspapers says what is clear, however, is that Wijana has failed to demonstrate any good faith in his capacity as an Indonesian citizen who is obliged to obey zoning and company registration laws.
