The Grand Kuta Inna Hotel, prominently located on Bali’s iconic Kuta Beach, has officially rebranded as Truntum Kuta.

This significant name alteration was commemorated at Truntum Kuta’s Mentari Beach Bar on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. The event embraced the theme “Cetu Murtaning Rat,” inspired by a Hindu epic from the Ramayana, symbolizing the arrival of a new era. This story recounts how the White Monkey god, Hanoman, constructed a bridge leading to a “better situation.”

In a similar vein, the transformation of the Grand Inna Kuta Hotel into Truntum Kuta marks a fresh chapter in the history of one of Kuta’s most historic hotel properties. First opening its doors 62 years ago, the hotel experienced its initial name change in 1974 when it became the Natour Kuta Beach Hotel. Subsequently, in 2001, it adopted the name Inna Kuta Beach before changing once more in 2013 to Grand Inna Kuta. From its original name in 1961 to its latest avatar as Truntum Kuta, the hotel has operated under five distinct names.

Thory Prabawa, Director of Hospitality Businesses and Partnership Management for PT Wijaya Karya Realty, the owner of Truntum Kuta, expressed confidence that the property will continue to attract tourists seeking a genuine “Kuta Experience,” especially during New Year celebrations.

As quoted by, Prabawa stated, “We believe that Truntum Kuta will become a preferred staycation destination that reflects the rich charm of Balinese culture, offering a unique blend of authentic Balinese traditions with a touch of luxury.”

The name-changing event on October 11, 2023, was also used to introduce Truntum Kuta’s new staff uniforms in a fashion show.
