A survey conducted by Bali Indonesia in May 2013 showed that 70.11% of the international tourists who visit Bali stay in the starred hotels.
As reported by Beritabali.com, only 10.81% of foreign tourists chose to stay in non-starred hotel and 16.36% in villas.
The same report shows that foreign tourists in Bali stayed an average of 8.55 days, an increase from the 7.67 days spent on the Island in 2012.
Elaborating further on survey, Dwi Pranoto, who heads the Bali Bank Indonesia Office, said 60.27% of foreign tourists coming to Bali seek a destination linked with nature, while 30.15% percent prefer a destination with cultural and historical conections.
Pranoto said the study shows that the time has come for Bali tourism to be managed under a single roof. “I wish to underline that whenever Bali is managed under a ‘one island management’ system it will continue to advance via an integrated vision, free of egotism and other impediments,” said Pranoto.
Dwi Pranoto also revealed that the latest survey by Bank Indonesia showed an increase in purchasing power from US$144.40 per day to US$150 per day.
Other interesting results from the Bank Indonesia study:
