Bali Aims to Capture Wellness and Health Tourism Potential

May 2019

Acknowledging the exponential growth of global wellness tourism, the Bali administration is currently aiming to expand the island’s health tourism with supportive regulation.

At the moment, there are above 3,000 traditional wellness centers which include herbal medicine practices and spas. However, only around 300 of these centers are in accordance with the administration’s standards. In response, the Bali administration is drafting a bylaw that would better regulate the industry. It is expected to be finalized in 2019.

Besides wellness business, the Bali administration is also supporting the development of the health tourism. The administration is looking at revamping the Bali Mandara hospital into a cancer center treatment. This is to complement the other existing hospitals in Bali, such as Sanglah hospital and Sanjiwani hospital.
