actually, these figures are deceptive. most asian tourists come for very short stays; typically package holidays staying at 5 star hotels.

non-asian tourists stay much longer -- 1-2 weeks or more -- and spend a lot more money overall, and stay at 3-4 star hotels.

5-star hotels in bali aren't that impressed with non-asian tourists as a consequence.
