As The Bali Sun previously reported the central government has decided to ban all domestic travelers from both arriving and departing Bali during the Eid Al-Fitr celebration. This policy was put in place as a prevention step from the government to avoid Covid-19 cases from surging during the holiday season.

The Senior Associate Director Research Colliers Indonesia, Ferry Salanto predicted that the occupancy rates of Bali hotels in 2021 won’t be showing any significant changes. “With this many hotel rooms available and the lack of visitors, Bali hotels have no choice other than to wait for the situation to get better.” Salanto said.

He also explained that the promotions that the hotels have been trying to offer haven’t shown a significant result. But he admitted that the Covid-19 vaccine distribution gave a positive signal to gain people’s trust to start traveling again. “The distribution of the Covid vaccine brings hope to the tourism sector in Bali as the central government plans to reopen the international travel corridor by July.

Tons of tourists will come as soon as they are allowed to, if they can enter without too long quarantine. You dont need to be sientist to know that.

Hotels can’t wish away a viral killer. If you invested in a hotel in the boom years and have seen your investment not succeed welcome to the reality of risk management. New owners with new enthusiasm will replace the ones going broke today. That’s life. Allowing Muslims to burst out reminds me of Chinas Golden Week disaster . It’s greed wanting to open tourism. It’s not good sense.

@J West, You don't need to be a Muslim to take advantage of the long holiday period at the end of Ramadan. The same goes when it is over Christmas or Easter, non Muslims and Muslims take pride in using the opportunity to take a long break regardless.
