Hotel to match fuel price hikes with higher room rates

The island’s hotel industry will be left with no choice but to adjust its room rates once the central government implements its plan to increase the prices of subsidized fuels, according to Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI).

The fuel price hike would push the prices of other commodities up, including essential materials for the hotel’s and restaurant’s daily operations. The fuel price hike could directly affect other businesses in the tourism industry, such as the travel and tour companies that would have to pay more for the gas for their buses. Fortunately, the central government plans to hike the fuel price early on in April, which is the time when most tourism businesses complete their annual contracts with their respective overseas partners.
