Following the sudden decline in tourist arrivals following the recent volcanic eruption of Mount Agung and a two-day closure of the Bali Airport, recent efforts undertaken by the Bali Tourism Service and tourism stakeholders to persuade visitors to return to Bali are showing results.

Cancelled flights following the reopening of the Airport and discouraging travel advisories regarding Bali from 10 countries have caused arrivals to nose dive and, according to, hotel occupancies to drop to around 10%.
Speaking in Bali at a celebration for the 67th anniversary of the Water and Aviation Police Corp (Polairud) on Monday, December 4, 2017, Bali’s Chief of Police General Petrus Reinhard Golose said: “ Earlier, I asked the management of the Hotel Inna Grand Bali Beach; Just because of the Mount Agung volcano the occupancy of the hotel is down to 10 percent.” confirmed the low occupancies at many hotels in Bali. The Public Relations of the Melia Bali Hotel, Mona, confirmed that occupancy was substantially reduced. “This is all because of the eruption of Mount Agung. Explanations have been given to the tourists but there are still no results,” said Mona. She reportedly told the press that less than 100 rooms of the hotels 500 rooms were occupied.
Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, an advisor to the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) confirmed that occupancies at hotels in Bali were as low as 20% Adding: “We want this condition to be quickly resolved and return to normal. We need to be optimistic that at some point normal times will return.”
Wijaya reported that three days after Bali’s airport resumed operations, arrival number are continuing to grow and already exceeds 5,000 inbound foreign passengers per day.
