Top 10 Accommodations in Kuta
1.Alam Kulkul Boutique Resort ⭐⭐⭐
Charm, atmosphere and tranquility amidst the chaotic Kuta.Unique in Bali’s most hedonistic region, this hotel clearly focuses on tradition and tropical gardens, with the name emanating from the traditional tower «kulkul» and the Indonesian word for «nature».The buildings are delightfully designed and the gardens are carefully laid out, with abundant ponds, palm trees and fountains.both pools are sized appropriately and have beautiful wooden terraces and a pool bar.the standard rooms are very comfortable, with terraces overlooking lush gardens, while the villas have private pools, large tiled balconies, canopy beds and large windows that maximize light and views.All rooms are at least 100 meters from the beachfront road and its endless traffic, and remarkably, this resort is just a few meters from the famous Kuta beach and its endless shops, cafes and bars.
2. Amnaya Resort Kuta ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Nice funky gem hidden from the crowds.Much more attractive than other motel-style resorts, the distinctive mauve paintwork and wood-stained balconies are quite striking, and the limited number of rooms is pleasantly «non-complex».The family suite has two of everything: bedrooms, bathrooms and balconies, while the villas are hidden behind the walls, but only five meters from the pool.100 meters from a quiet road from the busy road in Tuban, it is only 200 meters from the beach and 500 meters from Kuta.El Amnaya is also very convenient to Discovery Mall and just behind the Waterbom water park, which makes the complex noisy at times.
3.Bali Dynasty Resort ⭐⭐⭐⭐
It is not located in front of the beach, but it is exceptional for families.while this resort does not look directly at the ocean and therefore there are no rooms with an ocean view, guests can enjoy the private beach area just a few meters away.the sand, however, is grayish (which is typical of Tuban), but the water is calm.The pool, with its «waterfalls», volleyball nets and pool bar, is really huge and seems to dominate the whole complex.the rooms are very comfortable, while the «family rooms» with bunk beds can accommodate up to five.most of the rooms overlook the pool and gardens, but some overlook the parking lot and the driveway.the location is ideal: very close to two shopping malls (Discovery and Lippo) and the Waterbom water park.’, ‘And the little ones would also enjoy the cheerful children’s club and the playground in the swimming pool.
4.Bali Garden Beach Resort ⭐⭐⭐
Elegant, convenient, unpretentious and old-fashioned (in a good way).the traditional design with masses of lotus-filled ponds and dripping fountains is more attractive than other nearby resorts.All rooms are spacious and elegant, with a contemporary Balinese decor and overlook the sea and/or tropical gardens. The villas, however, are less attractive. The main beachfront pool (with pool bar) is very shady, while the «adults only» pool is full of beautiful gazebos. The beach is still part of the curved Kuta Bay, so it is wide (but not shady) and the sand is white.Some rooms can accommodate up to five people and there is a children’s pool, but it is not as well suited to families with young children as other resorts in Tuban, however, the location is ideal: adjacent to Discovery sall, opposite the Waterbom water park and about 200 metres from the centre of Kuta.
5.Best Western Kuta Beach ⭐⭐⭐
Funky and functional, compact and convenientPart of the renowned international chain of motels, this place is located along a quiet access road, but only 50 meters from the legendary Kuta Beach and a short walk from the Beachwalk shopping center and the world-class main road, with its endless cafes and shops. The overall design is colorful and impossible to miss, while the rooms are just as bright and modern, though a bit narrow and «minimalist» (as the brochure almost boasts).The elegant pool and rooftop bar offers cozy seating, welcoming breezes, fabulous views and more original furniture.nothing about the place is remotely Balinese, but it serves its purpose very well for budget travelers.
6.Hard Rock Hotel Bali ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spacious, with plenty of family facilities in downtown Kuta.The Hard Rock theme continues throughout the hotel, with autographed guitars in the corridors. The pools surrounded by thatched gazebos seem endless, and even have a «beach» with volleyball courts, an outdoor elevated stage, lifeguards and Beach Club.All the rooms are luxurious, as expected, and overlook the expansive gardens within 200 yards of the ceaseless traffic, but some can suffer from the noise of the adjacent Hard Rock Cafe. Probably the best family resort in Bali, it offers a children’s pool with an in-water play area, an exciting children’s club with extensive activities and a variety of fun things for the entire clan.
7.Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spacious, convenient, tranquil and truly family-friendly.approximately halfway between the airport and Bali’s busiest tourist spot, this resort is still within a short taxi ride of Kuta’s shopping malls and waves, while being a long way away.however, guests can easily stroll through Discovery and Lippo shopping malls and Waterbom water park.’, ‘With ponds at the entrance and vast expanses of grass around, this resort is bright, breezy and instantly enjoyable.the comfortable rooms, which have a modern decor, are grouped into a three-level motel-style block overlooking the gardens, but this provides considerable space elsewhere.the pool (with pool bar) is full of attractive gazebos, while the children will no doubt delight in the children’s club, games room and dedicated eating area.However, the beach is grey and sandy, but this is typical of Tuban.
8.Kuta Seaview Boutique Resorts ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Admirably spacious and quiet amidst the chaotic Kuta.Unlike its neighbours, this is a genuine boutique resort, and is well established and not part of an impersonal international chain.Surprisingly expansive, it’s only a minute’s walk to the Beachwalk shopping mall and just across the (busy) road from the famous beach with its legendary sunsets, but all the rooms are nonetheless away from the incessant traffic.the rooms in the three-level block are comfortable, with an elegant wood design, but not as attractive as the cabins, which offer insulation and privacy behind the stone walls covered with vines.The pool is huge for the limited number of guests, and the extensive tropical gardens are dotted with Balinese statues and shady palms, and even feature a small rice field.
9.The Patra Bali Resort & Villas ⭐⭐⭐
Adjacent to the airport but tasteful, traditional and quiet.large enough for guests to need maps, the runway is clearly visible and planes can often be heard, but not as intrusive.The Balinese style gardens are spacious, immaculate and dotted with palm trees and ponds, and the beachfront pool has a lovely tropical setting. The rooms are spacious, well ventilated and lovingly furnished, while the villas with private pools are secluded and elegantly designed. Typically for Tuban, the sand is grey and sandy, but the beach is curved, quiet and ideal for swimming.And there’s more than enough space for tennis courts, as well as a playground, a children’s pool and a children’s club. However, the resort feels remote (for example, it’s not easy to find taxis nearby), but the location between the streets of Tuban’s village is a rare attraction.
10.Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Luxury couldn’t be closer to Bali’s most famous beach and shopping centre.The giant lobby sets the stage: waterfalls, men playing gamelan instruments and young people in traditional dress welcoming guests. This modern and elegant complex is notably located just above the luxurious and extensive Beachwalk shopping centre, which overlooks the beach right in the centre of Kuta.Each room is opulent, as expected from this international luxury chain, with a bright contemporary decor, spa, luxurious «Sheraton bed» and an angled balcony offering uninterrupted views of the famous Kuta beach and its famous sunsets.The upper level Infinity pool and adjacent gymnasium also boasts magnificent views, as well as welcoming breezes, while the entire complex somehow avoids the noise of the incessant traffic that follows. However, the children’s club seems to be a symbolic addition, with an unattractive interior room filled with televisions and computers.
