Government to develop Sanur as health tourism hub for aged

Jakarta The government intends to develop the Sanur region in Bali Province as a Special Economic Zone (KEK) focused on health, with the prime focus on senior citizens, State Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir stated.

Thohir, here on Wednesday, highlighted Sanur’s potential to become a destination for health tourism.

“It will be different as compared to other areas in Bali. We want to attract tourists, especially the elderly,” the minister noted at the MNC Group Investor Forum 2021.

Sanur is a beach-side town and a popular resort area in South Bali.

Thohir pointed to 41 hectares of land ready for the development of KEK. “We await the government, state enterprises, and local as well as global investors to synergize efforts,” he remarked.

Of the total 41 hectares of land ready for KEK development, 21.2 hectares will be allotted for creating a health tourism hub replete with various facilities, including an international hospital, ecopark, commercial area and art market, and hotel and hospitality school.

The government has encouraged the development of health tourism that is expected to attract tourists and concurrently boost health facilities in Indonesia.

More importantly, the minister believes that the development of health tourism in the country would reduce the number of Indonesians travelling overseas to seek medical treatment.
