(1/20/2013)

Bisnis Indonesia reports that the Bali regency of Badung would “begin” limiting licenses and control the development of accommodation in South Bali in order to secure the island’s security, maintain occupancy levels, defend the destination’s reputation and guard mobility.

Cokorda Raka Darmawan, the head of the Badung Tourism Office, said that the brakes are now being applied on new requests for accommodation projects in the Badung regency.

“The development of all types of accommodation in this area (South Bali) has become too numerous, requiring control and limits to make the area more attractive for visitors,” said Darmawan on Tuesday, January 1, 2013.

The Badung Tourism Office counts 44,472 rooms comprised of 16,360 starred hotel rooms, 22,864 “melati-class” hotels, 3,013 "pondok wisata" and 2,235 condotels.

Raka Darmawan estimates there were 2.8 million foreign visitors in 2012, supplemented by around 5.4 million domestic visitor for a total head count of 8.6 million visitors.

He was quick to add, that not all visitors stay in Badung. “Only around 65% of tourists stay in Badung with the remainder choosing other regencies. On the average, visitors stay for three days,” explained Raka Darmawan.

Darmawan hopes that by limiting accommodation projects the number of foreign tourists staying in Badung will increase further, assisted by repairs on the infrastructure such as the airport, underpass and more flights to Bali.

“If everything is running, then in 2014 the number of foreign tourists can increase. But if the infrastructure and facilities are not operating, the quality of the destination will be lost. We need strong promotion,” said Raka Darmawan.
