DenPost reports that a new 2-star Grandmas city hotel now operating on Jalan Raya Tuban in Kuta, Bali came under intense scrutiny by authorities and local community residents who claim the new hotel has no operating license and fails to conform to zoning and building regulations.
Contacted by DenPost, the head of the Coordinated Licensing and Permit office for the regency of Badung (BPPT), Made Sutama, said hotels are not allowed to commence operations until they first hold the required permit and licenses – beginning from a “principal permit” and including a license to operate.
Sutama, speaking on Friday, January 31, 20013, said, “For Grandmas in Tuban they already hold an operating permit issued in December 2013, so the property can operate legally.”
Sutama emphasized that the regional zoning law (RTRW) is now full effect and hotels must conform to zoning requirements, adding, “We will not be rushed into issuing permits; we will review the hotel before granting permits.”
Local residents allege the new hotel has inadequate off street parking as required by the RTRW.
The hotel came under scrutiny when a number of Kuta resident questioned the legality of the new hotel, citing the over-supply of new hotel rooms now taking place across all of Bali.
