Plans to substantially increase admission fees at Tanah Lot appear only a step away from materialization. The vice-regent of Tabanan, Komang Gede Sanjaya, told Bisnis Bali that entry fees would increase 200 percent in 2012.

Sanjaya does not view the increase as exorbitant: “The increase only looks high as a number of 200 percent. If seen from the amount of money involved, it’s not so much”

The current admission fee for Tanah Lot is around Rp. 5,000 (US$0.57) for domestic children, Rp. 7,500 (US$0.85) for domestic adults and Rp. 10,000 (US$1.14) for foreign tourists. The vice-regent discounted the planned increase of 200%, saying US$2.00 represents a very small amount for visiting foreign tourists.

Sanjaya dismissed concerns from members of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA) who are saying the increase will be too burdensome, portraying such objections as over-statements.

He also said the proposed new cost of admission to Tanah Lot would still be less than the charge for entering other tourism sites in Indonesia, such as the Borobudur Temple. Adding: “In Jakarta tourism object admission cost between Rp. 50,000 and Rp. 100,000 per person. Most of the people who come to Tanah Lot are from Jakarta. If they are used to paying tens of thousands of rupiah in Jakarta, how can it be that Rp. 15,000 is too much (in Bali).”

He commented further, saying the increase was not being implemented to profit a businessman, but to pay for improved infrastructure at the Tanah Lot site. Saying the admission price for Tanag Lot had not increased for the past ten years, Sanjaya defended the increase as needed to help develop the regency of Tabanan.
