With Gianyar,, that includes the Bali city of Ubud, now seen as a "trending area" for hotel investment, some members of Provincial House of Representatives for Bali (DPRD-Bali) are calling for a halt to new starred hotel development in the areas surrounding Kedewatan.

The call for an end to starred hotel building in Kedewatan is being lead by DPRD-Bali Commission II member Wayan Tagel Arjana who says continued development in the area threatens the already delicate environs of the Ayung River

As reported by Metrobali.com, Arjana said: “Based on recent research conducted by the Ganesha Educational University (Undiksa), the Ayung River is polluted due to sewage produced by hotels and the heavy development of the area.” For this reason, he declares that the riverbanks of the Ayung that bisects the Kedewetan region is no longer suitable for starred hotel development.

No mention, however, was made of the large number of luxury boutique properties located in Kedewatan operating in grey areas with “pondok wisata” (Local Inns) licenses that by law allow no more than 5 rooms.

Arjana called on the government of Gianyar to curtail new starred hotel in Kedewatan allowing only bungalows to be opened as new accommodation venues.
