(5/2/2011)

As expected, enforcement officers from the Badung regency descended on the Best Western Kuta on Thursday, April 28, 2011, to post a sign in both English and Indonesian declaring hotel closed.

Discussing the fate of the hotel's 200 employee, Tommy B. Santosa, the General Manager of the Hotel told Kompas.com discussion were underway with the owner of the hotel on termination terms for the employees.

Despite a specific order from the Badung Regency prohibiting the owner from selling rooms at the hotel for dates after the closure order, the Best Western's on-line reservation systems on Saturday, April 30th continued to show rooms available for booking in May 2011.

According to local press reports the Hotel also continues to host guests despite the order to close. Anger at the apparent ineffectiveness of regency enforcement officials have prompted calls for the replacement of the chief enforcement officer for Badung.

Meanwhile, given the fact that the 111-room hotel is in gross violation of zoning prohibitions for multiple-residence structures in that area of Kuta and a corresponding lack of building or operating permits, has members of the Badung House of Representatives (DPR-Badung) calling for the building to be demolished.

Underling the uncertainty surrounding the hotel’s operation are angry comments received from one traveler who wrote to balidiscovery.com. Peter McConnell complained that despite the reports of closing and prohibitions from the Badung government forbiding the hotel from accepting new bookings, McConnell wrote to say he had made a telephone booking directly with the hotel on Sunday, May 1st  for a stay commencing  on May 5th. 

On Monday, May 2, 2011, Radar Bali carried comments from members of the Bali Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) who dismissed concerns that any abrupt closing of the Best Western will somehow damage Bali's tourism image. Pointing out that there are many other legally established hotels that can accommodate any guest displaced by the closure, the PHRI members said the hotel and any travel agency accepting illegal  bookings would be responsible to guests booking the Best Western Resort Kuta after its formal closing date.
