The management of a hotel in Ubud decided to dismantle its lobby after it received complaints about being too close to a nearby Hindu Temple.
The Public Relations Staff of the hotel in Kedewatan Village Ubud, I Ketut Nurata, confirmed that the management decided to dismantle the old lobby building and move it further from the nearby Hindu Temple. This happened after receiving a complaint from the Senator of Gianyar House of Representatives.
“We decided to dismantle our lobby building to avoid having issues with the local authority,” Nurata said on Monday (20/12).
Nurata explained that the building would be moved around 10 to 15 meters from the Temple area following the current government’s regulation. However, he also mentioned that the management had received approval from the local authority prior to the hotel’s construction.
“I told the village and Temple’s authority that the distance between the hotel and Temple is 10 meters, but the Temple’s official suggested that we build it closer,” Nurata added.
Gianyar Senator then received a report concerning a violation of the local regulation on building a hotel near a sacred area.
After being inspected by related government institutions, the authorities finally instructed the hotel’s management to dismantle the building for violating the government’s regulation.
