The Denpasar Municipal Government have announced that non-starred hotels or Melati Class properties in the city will soon undergo a certification program to enhance the sense of security for the many guests who opt for low-cost accommodation when visiting Bali.

As reported in BisnisBali, the Denpasar government acknowledges the significant contribution made by domestic tourists visiting Bali, a main market segment for Melati Hotels.

During a meeting held in Denpasar on September 3, 2008, to introduce the new certification program, Drs. Putu Budiasa, the Chief of the Denpasar Tourism Office, said the first step in the certification program would be an inventory of the number of Melati Hotels actually now operating in the City.

The new certification program is intended to compel hotel owners to focus their attention on issues connected with safety and security of their guests. Based on a set of published criterion, the Melati Hotels in Denpasar will eventually be issued gold, silver or bronze certificates reflecting their level of demonstrated security and safety preparedness.

Budiasa told the press that the occupancy level of hotels in Bali continue to increase. In 2008 average occupancy achieved 80%, up from 65% from 2007.

Budiasa counts 179 Melati III and Melati II in Denpasar of which 65 Melati Hotels are slated for certification in the current year.

Among the aspects included in the safety and security certification program are safety and security features, equipment, building specifications, software and training.

One Melati Hotel operator told BisnisBali that he has been working to follow the requirements of the certification program over the past two years. While most of the criterion has been met, cash flows have not yet been sufficient to allow him to install a CCTV systems.
