Bali Tourist class or Melati Hotel operating in the area under the jurisdiction of the Denpasar Municipal police are being urged to earn and obtain the safety and security certification to protect their guests from criminal activities.

According to, the suggestion was made by the Head of the Denpasar Police, Alit Widana, following the recent abduction and murder of a Japanese tourist from a Kuta hotel.

Alit regretted that not all tourist class ("Melati") and other moderately priced hotels in Bali possess the security standardization certificate issued by the Bali police. He said: "Because they lack the certification, the security of guests staying in these hotels cannot be fully guaranteed. There are hotels that employ only one person who is given shared responsibilities for security ("SATPAM"), reception and even room service. Clearly, this situation is not in conformance with the security standards we have set for hotels."

Hotel Prani Admonished

As regards the murder of a the Japanese woman tourist, Rika Sano, Alit had harsh words for the security of the Hotel Prani in Legian Kelod, Kuta, who he accused of failing to adequately protect the safety of its guests.

Explained Alit: "How can the hotel allow one of their guests to leave in the company of a person claiming to be a policeman? The hotel should have accompanied their guests if, indeed, they were going to be interviewed by the police, and then accompanied her back to the hotel after the interview. Instead, they just allowed their guest to go along with a person of uncertain identity.

In response to the recent murder, Alit has issued orders to all his precinct chiefs in Denpasar to standardize the security at all hotel, especially Melati hotels and small inns.
