The Growing Role of Villas

Bank Indonesia Report Shows Hotels May be Losing a Growing Market Share to Villas

(9/11/2006) A report issued by Bank Indonesia states that a growing number of tourists visiting Bali are seeking accommodation outside of traditional hotel settings.

The characteristic survey of Bali visitors carried out by Bank Indonesia reports that in February 2006 a 7.3% share of all foreign visitors sought accommodation outside of hotels, a figure that increased to 8% in March 2006.

A similar survey carried out by Udayana University in November 2005, one month after the terrorist attack, said 20% of all visitors interviewed while departing from Bali's airport indicated they had stayed in non-hotel accommodation.

According to the State News Agency Antara, there are an estimated 467 villa operations in 8 regencies of Bali and the capital city of Denpasar, many of which are thought to be unlicensed operations.
