The chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Bali (PHRI-Bali), Tjokorda Oka Arda Sukawati, has warned hotels that they are not allowed to infringe on the public space along all shore lines in Bali.

“I recommend to all PHRI members to communicate (with their surrounding communities) on this problem. What’s more, Bali’s traditional fishing communities are one of the natural attractions of the Island. Like in Sanur, the fishermen and tourism operators have discovered a shared synergy,” explained Tjokorada.

The PHRI chairman and former regent of Gianyar reminded that hotels built along beaches in Bali are not allowed from monopolizing or blocking beach access under the regulations set forth in the provincial zoning law (RTRWP).

Tjokorda claimed many conflicts over beach usage arise due to miscommunications and encroaching beach erosion shortening the distance between the sea ad the hotel.

The official zoning laws for Bali prohibit the construction of any permanent structure within 100 meters of the high water mark.

The secretary-general of the PHRI-Bali, Ferry Markus, is encouraging fishermen in Bali to approach hotel encroaching on their access to the beach and ocean to seek a win-win solution.
