Hilton Garden Inn Bali is one of the favorite hotels for Hilton members to burn their points as it only goes for 5,000 Honors points per night + you can get the fifth night free.
A LoyaltyLobby reader just forwarded an email that they had received from the hotel disclosing that it is closing for an extended period.

Covid-19 Situation in Indonesia
The vaccination rate is low in Indonesia, and I believe that they’ve used mostly the Chinese ones that are not the most efficient.
The daily infection and death rates are trending down. Most infections are likely not recorded as the test positivity rate hovers around 30%.
Many Asian countries handled the initial phase of the Covid-19 pandemic well, but the Delta variant doesn’t appear to be sparing them now due to low vaccination and previous infection rates.
Indonesia has suspended visa issuance for most (you could previously get a business visa to do remote work in Bali), and there must not be a need for transient accommodations at this time.
Let’s hope that Indonesia and Bali can get the situation under control and reopen the country and island for tourism.
