As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that struck Indonesia in 2020, Bali’s tourism industry suffered greatly. Despite the pandemic, Pondok Lulik Guest House Bali in Canggu and Seseh was able to maintain and even increase its occupancy.
 
Based on the data of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy’s 2021 Tourism Trends Book, there were only 4,052 million foreign tourists in Indonesia in the year of 2016. It’s not even close to half the number of tourists expected to visit Indonesia in 2019.
 
Pondok Lulik Guest House in Canggu and Seseh, Bali, has seen its occupancy drop precipitously as a result of the downturn in Indonesian tourism. Mbok Yuli, the owner of the guest house in Canggu and Seseh, admitted that the pandemic made it difficult to manage and increase her occupancy.
