Bali hotels have again been forced to step up their security and be on high terror alert, after attacks on police in central Java.
Head of the Bali tourism office, Kade Subhiksu, has warned managers of hotels, villas and appartments to follow strict security measures.
Tourists to the area are advised to be on constant watch for suspicious behavior and to follow the instructions of local authorities in the event of an attack. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is not currently advising against travel to the island.
Travelmole reported that chairman of the Indonesian Hotels and Restaurants Association told Bali Daily "The association has closely coordinated with the government, the police and its members to take the necessary measures to prevent any possible terrorist threats."
The step up in security comes just six weeks before the 10th anniversary of the 2002 bombings in Bali, which took place in the popular tourist district of Kuta.
Security forces have already had to up surveillance on the Indonesian island, following two raids on hotels in which five suspected terrorists were allegedly shot down.
