Bali’s new Anantara Resort at Seminyak may be hitting the heights – but for some it may have gone way too high.
According to Bali Update (www.balidiscovery.com) the new Anantara hotel/apartment complex is facing problems with local authorities for ignoring local building codes. The building is alleged to have exceeded the 15-metre height limit.
According to the Bali Post, zoning authorities delivered what is traditionally a third and final "warning" to the builders on February 12, 2008, for violating height requirements and deviating from the building plans submitted to and approved by the government for the project.
Bali Update said it is now unclear how investors who have purchased accommodation shares in the managed hotel complex, or guests booked at the property, will be affected by the government's demand that the roof-top terrace bar – built to rival the one at nearby Ku-De-Ta -be removed.
