The Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Restaurant and Hotel Association (PHRI-Bali) has expressed its public dismay with the increasingly unhealthy state of hotel prices in Bali.
As reported by Beritabali.com, PHRI-Bali's observations in the marketplace show the nightly cost for a City Hotel in Bali is between Rp. 300,000 (US$30) and Rp. 200,000 (US$20).
The chairman of PHRI-Bali, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati, said the growing number of rooms in Bali and the increasingly aggressive pricing has him worried.
He also complained that many new hotels are being built without following the investment procedures of the country, with some storefronts now being converted into City Hotels. He is persuaded that this boom in new hotels will lead to even more unhealthy price competition in the hotel sector.
Sukawati repeated his oft-sounded call for a moratorium on new hotel construction in Bali.
