(12/9/2012)

The regional government of Karangasem closed and sealed the doors of the Hotel Agung Resort on Pantai Batudawa in the village of Tulamben, North Bali on Wednesday, December 5, 2012.

The hotel, owned by a Czech citizen, Haspal Yoseph, was closed for operating without a license.

As reported by DenPost, the Hotel Agung Resort holds no operating license or even the basic building permit needed to erect the property. Nonetheless, the hotel has been in operation for the past two years.

A regional enforcement team led by Ketut Wage Saputra failed in its efforts to meet with the resort’s owner. Instead, they were received by a number of the hotel’s employees. The hotel’s manager, I Ketut Sukiasa could only be contacted by telephone by the enforcement team.

On the telephone, Sukiasa admitted that the hotel he manages lacks the needed permits and licenses, but insisted this situation was not intentional. He explained: “My boss is the second owner, the previous owner was Pak Suwela. Suwela promised to obtain the needed licenses, which he has failed to yet do.”

The regency’s enforcement team took the decision to close and seal the hotel, but gave the resort the opportunity to allow their last guest to check out before attaching the deal to the front gate, while, at the same time, forbidding the hotel from receiving any new guests.

Also, according to DenPost, at least one of the resort’s buildings stands too close to the high water mark, in violation of zoning rules on minimum setback.

Saputra said that while the regency welcomes investors, those investors must obey rules and regulations. He also thanked the public for supporting efforts to bring erring hotels into line, adding that the initial report of the hotel’s violations came directly from the public.
