The long-stalled and often controversial 400-hectare Pecatu Indah Resort development on Bali's southernmost peninsula seems set to resume, if reports in The Jakarta Post are correct.
Owned by PT Bali Pecatu Graha (BPG), the project is planned to include real estate developments for private residences, luxury hotels, a golf course, a convention center, theme park, a hospital, and an international school.
Started in 1998, the projectís progress was bogged down by political and economic upheaval, as well as protracted legal disputes with local land owners over ownership of tracts included in the development.
Despite a reported freeze on new hotel developments on the island, The Jakarta Post reports that the Pecatu Indah project will include an 11-hectare hotel project built by the Rekso Group and a five-star hotel owned by PT Luminary Wira Bhakti to be operated by The Westin Group.
PT Intra Golflink Resort is developing an 85-hectare golf course within the complex.
