W Bali Hit By Zoning Controversy
In a continuing crackdown over building infringements by resorts and restaurants on beach areas in Indonesia's premier tourism destination, online news site Balidiscovery.com has reported that the upscale W Retreat in Seminyak has been citied.
Key to the controversy is that set back regulations have been allegedly infringed on which include the resort swimming pool and bar area.
In the nearby Batu Belig area four beach clubs and restaurants have been
demolished with the fate of a Karma group developed property still unknown.
Bali is continuing to grapple with a similar onslaught of building similar to Phuket as both location shift into urban resort models.
