There Oughta’ Be a Law!

The regency of Badung in Bali – the island’s southernmost region - is often accused of “selling” operating permits for new hotels. Within this context, the emergence of new “City Hotels” offering minimalist and modern facilities at bargain prices have been likened by the Bisnis Bali to the proliferation of mushrooms in the rainy season.

The regional government of Badung claims they have little legal basis for halting the growth in hotels and villas in their region, but, however, is studying new local regulations that could bring the unbridled growth of "City Hotels" under control.

“Indeed, City Hotels are not the type of hotels that should be emerging in Badung, although this is the case of late. But we cannot stop (these developments) so easily as there is no legal basis governing this area. We are in the midst of preparing regulations to control the development of City Hotels, “ explained the head of the Badung Tourism Office, Cok Raka Darmawan, on October 18, 2012.

According to Darmawan, the rules currently under review to control the growth of City Hotels may consider rules on minimal areas of land needed for new hotels.

Notwithstanding any new regulations under consideration, the exisiting 2009 provincial Zoning Law (RTRWP)  governing hotel developments in Badung already contains sections specifying minimal parking areas and the requirement of a 40% coefficient of open space for new hotel developments.

As a result, the chairman of the Badung regency of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI), I Gusti Ngurah Rai Surawijaya, told Bisnis Bali that many City Hotels violate many building existing codes and, because this, enforcement action must be taken now.
