(6/1/2009)

DenPost reports that the new Best Western Condotel located on Jalan Pantai in Kedonganan (Jimbaran) may be in serious violation of local zoning laws.

The 188 room apartment hotel complex which is nearly 90% completed has generated complaints from local residents who claim the property exceed the maximum 15 meter building height rule and also fails to honor the mandatory set back rules from a public road.

Contacted on Friday, May 29, 2009, by DenPost, the head of the Promotion and Public Relations for the Kedonganan Beach Tourism Board (BPKP2K), I Gede Rai Wijaya, confirmed that The Best Western was in violation of both height and setback restrictions of the 2005 provincial zoning law. The former chief of the Tuban district called on the zoning enforcement agency and zoning officials to check the construction site and verify that violations have taken place,

A representative from the South Kuta Camat office told the press that local residents were becoming fed up to see the illegal structure allowed to continue in its construction, despite numerous complaints.

NusaBali also reports that the 110-room Hotel Sapta Patala on Jalan Kubu Anyar in Kuta lacks the necessary licenses and permits. A surprise inspection by members of Commission A of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung) indicated that the hotel lacks the necessary building or location permit.

NusaBali reports that the hotel owned by Wayan Wijana and soon to be operated under the Best Western brand, originally opened in 1970 with seven rooms, later expanded to 57 rooms before its latest expansion to a 110 room property.

Local legislators have called on the authorities to stop the construction of the new hotel projects until the proper licensing is in place.
