The latest chapter in the embarrassing litany of hotels and villas seemingly built in blatant disregard of local zoning laws surfaced last week with press reports of another Condotel Ė the Sara Residence operating on Jalan Nakula in Kuta.

According to NusaBali, the structure was built using a "principle permit" allowing a hospital to be on the site and that the hotel has been operating for several months without holding the required operating licenses.

When questioned by NusaBali, the owner of the property, Parwatha, reportedly admitted the lack of the required licenses, explaining that he had just put the building permit (IMB) in order and that he was working on UPL/UKL (environmental permits), and would then seek an operational license.

The owner said he was compelled to operate the 11 room hotel while waiting for the licensing process to be completed in order to cover operational costs.

The Chief of the traditional village of Legian (Bendesa Adat), UGN Sudiarsa, was quoted by the press,, saying that the hotel should be closed if it lacks the proper and complete operating licenses until such a time as all its licenses and permits are in order.

Sudiarsa bemoaned the fact that Legian was becoming home to a number of hotels built in violation of local zoning laws. "Basically, we support investment in our area, but we urge investors to follow the established rules., " explained Sudiarsa.

The Head of the Tourism Service for Badung, I Made Subawa, told NusaBali that his office has given tolerance to the Sara Residence to undertake training of staff while the needed operations permit was put in order. When pressed on how many months of "tolerance" would be given to allow training, Subawa said three months should be enough.

An earlier report in NusaBali, said the three-story building holds a principle permission for the construction of a hospital, and that the construction of a hotel residence represents a violation of its founding permit.
