Both Radar Bali and Nusa Bali confirm that the regent of Badung, A.A. Gde Agung, has issued a formal decision ordering the closure of The Best Western Hotel, Kuta located on Jalan Kubu Anyar.

Agung's decision is contained within a letter issued by his office on March 28, 2011, ordering the closure of the hotel. The letter was delivered to the Hotel's owner, Wayan Wijana, by Bandung enforcement officials (Satpol PP) and mandated the hotel cease operations within 7 days from the date of the letter or face forcible closure by the authorities.

Prior to the delivery of the closure order, the owner of the hotel had received three separate warnings from the regency's administration.

The Hotel which opened with 111-rooms in 2009, was preceded by a collection of simple family-owned bungalows operating as the Sapta Petala which open in the 1970s.

The owner decided to upgrade and expand the business into a modern hotel, commenced construction of the revamped property in 2006. In 2007 Wijana applied for a building permit for the 111-room hotel to regency officials who rejected the application based on a 1995 zoning law which specifically forbade multiple-unit accommodation in the area occupied by the hotel which is reserved for single family dwellings.

Undeterred by the refusal, Wijana persisted in building the hotel which opened it door in 2009 without a building permit or the mandatory operating licenses.
