The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic which has been running for more than one year resulted in around 20 hotels ranging from non-star to 5-star classes being offered for sale in Buleleng Regency, Bali.
“Yes, that’s right, yesterday was around 20 hotels,” said Dewa Ketut Suardipa as Chairman of the Association of Hotel Restaurant Indonesia (PHRI) Buleleng Regency, Bali.
He explained, there are 170 hotels joined in PHRI Buleleng and 13 restaurants. However, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, dozens of hotels have closed operations but some are still open.
“Now many hotels have been closed in North Bali because they are no longer strong enough to operate,” he explained.
Financial problems also impacted the staff and employees at the hotel who were laid off. Although, there are still several hotels that are still open and employ several employees even though they are not full every day.
