Goals of New Hotel Moratorium Will Remain Unmet Without New Infrastructure Projects Providing Access to Outlaying Area of Bali

Bisnis Bali reports that any moratorium on new hotels In Bali, in order to be effective, must be accompanied by major infrastructure development in order to encourage new projects in remote areas of Bali.

The proclaimed policy of the provincial government of Bali to impose a moratorium on new hotels in South Bali is being viewed by many observers as a half-hearted commitment, at best.

According to Bisnis Bali, the lack of commitment to limiting the number of hotels is proven by the building boom still underway in Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar and Ubud.

Because of this, tourism practitioners in Bali’s north have joined the protest, saying the continued building of new hotels in the south is sidestepping original plans to “shift” new hotel construction to Bali’s northern and western regions.

The chairman of the Buleleng (North Bali) chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Buleleng), Dewa Ketut Suardipa, said on Sunday, March 3, 2013, that the so-called moratorium of new hotel projects in Bali’s southern region has yet to be realized.

In the face of a proclaimed ban on new hotels, new “city hotel” are being built in already crowded regions of South Bali. Said Suardipa: “We very much agree with the moratorium, but what we don’t understand is its implementation. Some say the moratorium in South Bali will speed development in other regions of Bali. But until now there’s been no wider distribution of new hotel projects."

On a number of occasions the PHRI in Buleleng has tabled the problem of a half-hearted moratorium with the Provincial PHRI office for Bali. To date, Buleleng’s efforts have not earned a formal response. “We have formally written to PHRI Bali, but it’s clear that the policy is half-hearted,” said Suardipa.

Suardipa said any moratorium, in order to be successful, it has to be accompanied with infrastructure development and improved public access to the outlaying areas of Bali. In the instance of East Bali, there is already the new Ida Bagus Mantra highway that has shortened the traveling time to the Island's east. Access to other areas, such as Buleleng, remain problematic.

To make a moratorium result in new projects in Bali’s north, the government must build a highway connecting Singaraja and Denpasar, said Suardipa.
