The Head of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Badung, I Gusti Ngurah Rai Suryawijaya, confirmed that the hotel occupancy in the region is expected to increase by 40 percent during the Eid Al-Fitr holidays in May 2022.

“We expect a 40 percent increase on our hotel occupancy rate during the holidays in early May,” Suryawijaya said on Friday (8/4).

This is good news for the Bali tourism sector as they expect that more domestic tourists will travel to Bali. The national Eid Al-Fitr holiday will occur from April 29 to May.

As part of the tourism recovery campaign, the majority of hotels in Badung decided to offer special discounts for travelers. “Most of our hotels will offer a 50 percent discount during this tourism recovery campaign called ‘Welcome Back To Bali.’ This will encourage visitors to go to Bali and tell their family and friends that Bali is safe for visiting,” Suryawijaya added.

He was also grateful that Bali has received over 2,000 international visitors since the travel restrictions dropped a few months ago.

Bali is expected to receive more foreign visitors before the end of April as nine more international airlines have planned to resume their international routes with Bali Airport.

Full covered peoples on beaches wasn’t present in 1980‘s, nobody was wearing even hijab on Jakarta airport or in Bali, what’s happened in between!?

@Wayan Bo, haven't you noticed that Singapore as modern as it can be has a large Muslim ethnic population. Many women wear the hijabs even the current president of Singapore. Everyone lives in harmony despite all different religions and cultures all converged together on this tiny island nation.

Have you ever flown Indonesian registered Airlines including Garuda that all the flight attendants do NOT wear the hijabs. Only on certain routes to Saudi Arabia or Aceh for that matter.

@Wayan Bo, what is a full covered people?

Don't be so naive!! By making a statement out there you can't fool other folks though.

Heard through the grapevine that triple vaccinated travelers are exempt from the rapid antigen test 1 x 24 hr prior to departure on the Java -Bali-Java corridor.

However those domestic travelers including expats regardless of residency who are double jabbed need to bring a digital proof and or an original vaccination card with the third vaccination done from abroad to be exempted from the rapid antigen test requirement. Validation counters are available at domestic terminal should the ticket agent still does not understand that a third vaccination is actually a booster. Sighs.

We've all heard that before "Hotel occupancy expected to increase", "flight passengers expected to increase", "tourists arrival expected to increase"... Thing is, these expectations have no fundamentals. Its just a cheap-talking. If Bali gov. doesnt bring it back to normal nothing will get increased. And as you all know, its not only my opinion, as an unvaxxed, but also those who are triple vaxxed (and God knows how many boosters).

@Mat, the unvaxxed individuals are the biggest mouth. Things do not go your way to enter Bali and beyond. You chose what you have become and believe. Stop blaming others. Btw which part don't you " unvaccinated people" freaking get ?

@Mat, Increase is relative: If you have an increase of 40%, that could just mean occupancy rate went from 5% to 7%. So expect big percentages since it is recovering from near zero.

This doesn't mean good news though: It can also mean that you're still down 80% from 2019 levels and going bankrupt.
