The Bali Hotel and Restaurant Association has confirmed that Ubud hotels have reached a 40 percent occupancy rate.

The Head of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Gianyar, Adit Pande, confirmed that the occupancy of hotels in Ubud has recorded growth since the Indonesian government loosened up travel policies for international travelers in Bali.

This was especially seen during the Easter holiday season when many Australians began visiting the island. “We have a significant increase on our hotel occupancy in Ubud, with an average of 30 to 40 percent during the Easter holiday. The majority of visitors were Australian,” Adit said on Sunday (17/4).

He also appreciated the government for revising travel restrictions. This resulted in Bali receiving over 2,000 international travelers each day, and 10 to 15 percent of them chose to stay in Ubud.

“Thanks to the government for implementing easier regulations for foreign travelers. We are finally attracting many international airlines to resume their international routes with Bali. And now, we can see tourists walking on Jalan Monkey Forest Ubud in the evening for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020,” Adit added.

Adit is optimistic that things will start picking up in the upcoming holiday season, from June to August.

“We’re hoping that we’ll see a 60 percent increase this April, and that things will go back to normal by the holiday season on July,” Adit concluded.

I appreciate Adit Pandit optimism suggesting for Gianyar "things will go back to normal by the holiday season on July". Lets look at the facts: - In 2019 more than 6 million foreign tourists visited Bali (16,000+/day) - Now on this site it is reported as 2,000/day. With a 60% increase by July this will be 3,200/day. Not bad but quite far from the pre-covid arrival. Maybe he is referring the "the new normal".

A number of factors are affecting arrival: - Inconvenience: Insurance, vaccine, testing, masks etc - Worldwide supply chain issues and instability resulting in inflation with high food, energy and commodity prices. - Flights: Takes time to ramp up, pilot shortage. - Local factors: > Pre-covid Bali already reported oversupply of hotel rooms > Looking at property listings suggests quite a few hotels and rental villas are for sale, i.e. will take time to renovate and train staff getting back into the market. - Some regions like China are still fighting covid, hence few flights arriving compared to Australia for now - Etc

@Vicki, was just watching cooking oil distribution in Palembang, Sumatra. Export stop of cooking oil is in power. Oil massages for tourist’s could soon become unavailable because of oil shortages. - In such hard times each tourist count like hundred tourists in pre pandemic times.
