Minister Agrees to Buyan Resort

A private investor has been given the go-ahead to build a luxury resort within an area of protected forest at Lake Buyan in Buleleng.

The 100-hectare resort received the nod last week from national Forestry Minister, prompting criticism from environmental campaigners. The resort area will feature hotels, villas and other tourism facilities under a 55-year concession agreement. The minister’s move was criticised by Bali Governor I Made Mangku Pastika, and other local legislators as the villa and resort construction will only decrease forest land.
