Anantara Resort – A Law Onto Itself

In its continuing coverage of new life-style resorts that apparently refuses to submit itself to local rules and regulations, the Bali Post claims that the enforcement team from the Badung government continues to be hoodwinked by the owners of the Anantara Resort on Seminyak Beach.

According to the paper, the promised demolishment of a the penthouse and Sunet on Six bar located on the roof of the Resort, built in violation of local building rules,has yet to take place, despite the hotel's management having signed a guarantee September 8, 2008, that the demolishment would be done.

The popular Seminyak Resort stands 18 meters high, a full 3 meters more than the permitted maximum height of 15 meters for buildings in Bali.

Following renewed reports in the Bali Post ridiculing the continuing code violation, a special team comprised of 20 enforcement officers from the Badung Police swept into the Resort on Wednesday, January 14, 2009, and took the demolition of the upper floor into their own hands.

The Head of the Badung Enforcement Authority (Satpol PP Badung), Wayan Adi Arnawa, expressed his disappointment with the resort which had finally forced his team to take direct action after repeated unfulfilled promises mades by the Resort's Management.

Following their public promise made on September 3, 2008, the management of the Anantara Resort spent a few days going through the motions of pretending to demolish the structures on the sixth floor only to allow the violating structures to remain intact. When challenged on this point, the Resort's Management claimed that demolishment was halted due to safety concerns for the guests occupying the Anantara Resort. This explanation, however, fails to ring true, bearing in mind that a number of guests and functions have been reportedly hosted on the sixth floor of the Resort after the September 3, 2008 date.

The Badung enforcement team have now pledged not to leave the site the structures on the sixth floor are finally removed, even if they must do the job themselves.
