Fool on the Hill

What’s Happening with Stalled Panorama Hotel Project Overlooking GWK Park in Bali?

(4/20/2012) Radar Bali reports that among the numerous hotel projects in Bali there are a number of half-completed projects prompting public demands for their completion.

Included among those projects are the Panorama Hotel in the village of Ungasan, on a hilltop overlooking the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument (GWK) Park. Now an uncompleted eyesore, the five-storey hilltop structure has been abandoned for years.

A local community leader in Ungasan, Made Duama, said, “The people of Ungasan have questions and are urging the completion of the Panorama Hotel.”

Duama, who served a village leader when the hotel project was commenced, says the Badung regency government should show firm resolve and revoke the licenses of the hotel is the accommodation project is indeed abandoned.

The head of the Zoning Authority for Badung (Dinas Cipta Karya –DCK), Ni Putu Dessy Dharmayanty, acknowledges the presence of the uncompleted hotel, claiming she has issued warnings to the investors to complete the hotel. “According to the rules, after five years any project that is not completed results in an automatic suspension of its building permit,” she explained.

Dessy confirmed that the building permit (IMB) was granted to the hotel in 2008, meaning the project’s permits expire in 2013.
