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.
