As reported by Bali Post,  a villa complex, which has operated as the Bedugul Garden and Lake Resort and, more recently, as the Resort Puri Candikunung, was visited last week by regency enforcement officers (Satpol PP Tabanan). Gardeners and watchman in attendance at the Villa were unable to present any formal permits or licenses.

Heightening suspicions of the authorities are the facts that the buildings are directly on the shore of the lake and presents a range of facilities resembling a luxury resort, including a lobby and reception area.

None of the workers at the resort were able to provide a name or a telephone contact for the owner of the property, but did provide an address for a management company’s office located in Kuta. When officials contacted that office, it was confirmed that the resort does not have an operating license. A license issued in the name of the Resort Puri Candikuning had expired in May of 2009. The expired license was only issued for a modest home stay (melati) and not for the luxury resort now standing at the site. An extension on the 2009 licenses has not been issued.

According to one of the watchmen, the villas are never rented out commercially and only used occasionally by their owner. 20 workers on the site are charged with keeping the premises clean.

Mudita, the local community leader (Perbekel) at Candikuning, told Bali Post that his office has never issued the recommendation needed to apply for the extension of or changes in the operating licenses as required.
