Rajas of Gianyar

Condotels and Apartments ban

Although Badung Regency, Denpasar and Gianyar Regency are the three richest regions in Bali and most of their wealth comes from tourism, in February 2012 Gianyar Regency officially banning the construction of new increasingly popular condominium hotels (condotels) and apartment facilities. Not as Badung Regency and Denpasar which condotels and apartments are the hottest items in the market for tourist developers and investors, Gianyar Regency wants to protect the local entrepreneurs.[4]


The regency is divided into seven districts (kecamatan), listed below with their 2010 Census populations:[5]

Gianyar Regency's civil registry recorded 480,447 residents by religion, in April 2012, 97.8% Hindu.[6]
