The impact of tourism on environment has been warned by environmentalists and has become subject of academic studies. This research analyses stakeholder perceptions on water scarcity in Bali amid the glitter of Bali tourism. Survey and interviews have been conducted to several stakeholder groups, including government, local residents, tourists (foreign and domestic), hotel industry and non-government organizations. 400 respondents participate in the survey, followed by a series of interviews with several key people representing various stakeholder groups. The results show that majority of respondents are not aware of the water scarcity problem but support the notion of sustainable tourism. Respondents also have one voice regarding the importance of water savings and water conservation activities in Bali. This research has implications on the importance of water scarcity awareness, water conservation campaign, as well as sustainable tourism.
