The Deputy Chief of Cultural Environmental and Public Relations from the Hotel and Restaurant Association, I Gusti Ngurah Rai Suryawijaya, confirmed that the occupancy rate of accommodation businesses in Bali has significantly dropped from the high during the holidays in December 2021.

He claimed that the Omicron variant is the major cause of this phenomenon.

“According to our data, 13,000 domestic visitors arrived in December. This dropped to 10,000 in January, and it’s now at 7,000 as Covid-19 transmission continues to surge in Bali,” Suryawijaya said on Wednesday (9/2). I

The current hotel occupancy rate is only 15 percent.

However, Suryawijaya still hopes that the occupancy rate will increase once the Omicron variant is properly contained in the next few months.

“Our occupancy rate has dropped from 30 percent during the last holiday season to only 15 percent today. However, the situation is expected to get better in March when Omicron transmission is reduced,” Suryawijaya concluded.

Let's get this straight omicron never shut down anything. The lockdowns is because of stupid politicians not because of Covid look at the data the vaccines does not work against omicron you need to stop this madness by refusing to cooperate.

Nehhhh. Us, the tourists, we don’t care about omicron. We double or tripled vaccinated already…

What the problem is, as most already know, 5 day quarantine, at 5 star hotel, with expensive visa. For me 2 week stay, half of it is gone in quarantine. And I have to pay an at least an extra $1000 for the visa, tests, insurance, quarantine, for myself only. Imagine a family then… it won’t happen. And your numbers won’t improve to much unless you let us come in like all the other countries around you!
