Refuting claims reported in the media that the airport hotel now being constructed at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport lacks the needed licenses and permits, both the airport’s managers PT Angkasa Pura I and the Regent of Badung have forcefully stated that the transit hotel that will open later this year has all the required paperwork.
Meanwhile, more details are emerging on the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport Transit Hotel.
Operators claim that a transit hotel is an "absolute necessity" for any modern airport, despite the close proximity of Bali’s airport to thousands of hotel rooms within a 3 kilometer radius of the airport and a general consensus that Bali is suffering from a severe over-supply of hotel rooms.
According to Radar Bali, the new airport will have a four-star hotel rating, offer 200-rooms and be operated by Novotel. The hotel, centrally located within the renovated airport, will have three floors and will be the third airport hotel in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya.
The location for the Novotel Bali Airport Hotel will be on the south side of the promenade near the airport's center and around 100-meters from the ceremonial Balinese Candi Bentar - the formal entrance to the air gateway.
The Hotel's Promenade location will be midway on the connecting structure between the domestic and international terminals.
The transit hotel is being built to serve passengers on layover or compelled to stay at the airport due to flight delays.
