Radar Bali reports that 97% of hotels and villas in the Gianyar regency of Bali are operating illegally. A recent survey conducted by the regional government of Gianyar reviewing hotels, villas, home stays (pondok wisata), cafes and restaurants showed that only 3% of the companies reviewed were legally constituted and licensed.

Cokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), the Regent of Gianyar, revealed to the press the results of a review carried out by regional enforcement officers over the past few months.

That survey included no less than 911 accommodation and dining providers in Gianyar comprised of 27 hotels, 353 home stays, 393 villas and 139 cafes/restaurants. From this entire number only 30 companies were found to hold complete licenses. Of the 393 villas inspected, only 10 held valid licenses.

Most concerning to inspectors was that from the 353 home stays reviewed only four were operating legally.

Faced with an overwhelmingly illegal accommodation and restaurant industry must represent an acute embarrassment for Cok Ace who, in addition to being the top elected official of the Gianyar regency, is also the chairman of the Bali's chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali). Cok Ace has called for a re-registration and amnesty process to bring the errant companies into line while at the same time increasing hotel and restaurant tax revenues for Gianyar.

At the same time, Cok Ace readily admitted there are perhaps even more illegal restaurants and accommodation providers still operating in Gianyar who were not netted during the course of the most recent survey.
