No More Hotels in Bali

DENPASAR

Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI) Bali viewed there should be no more hotel construction in the Paradise Island, because the current number of rooms available is already exceeded.

“Things need to be improved is lifting the room price, rather than building new hotels,” said the Chairman of GIPI Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, in Denpasar.

Wijaya said it was responded to predictions presented by property research institution, Knight Frank, which is estimated by 2014 the supply of new hotel rooms in Bali reached 10.466 rooms from 60 projects are currently under construction.

According to him, the high room selling price then the income tax of hotel room and restaurant income tax would be increased as well therefore it increase the regional revenue.

“There needs to be thought by not providing the license of building new hotels, especially in crowded area in order to maintain the environment. Therefore no longer needed additional tourist accommodation,” he said.

He said, one of the effects of the many rooms as they are now, resulting in declining occupancy rates especially during the low season.

In addition to the new hotel triggered unhealthy tariff war. It was triggered by previous promo which offering rooms’ tariff that are below the market.

Meanwhile, the Executive Director of t Bali Hotel Association (BHA) Djinaldi Gosana said the prediction is not necessarily true, and not much to worry about.

“Even if there is a branded or international hotel then it is even good in improving the image of tourism in Bali,” he said.

    Bali should be careful, yes restrict hotel building – there is so much going on right now but do not overprice the rooms available. Always great to get more tax but empty rooms will not earn any tax Those who go to Bali only because it is a cheap tropical beach holiday destination will soon move on to other cheap areas in Asia. The people who go for ‘Bali’ will be the ones coming back year after year but may restrict themselves to one visit a year instead of two. The main thing no matter what happens is to work hard to keep the culture and friendliness of Bali and stop it turning further into a highrise beachfront like so many other beach destinations have done.

    I agree as there are far too many BUT putting up the price will only push people away and they will end up going elsewhere for their holidays.
