Beach hotels and resorts Kuta, Bali
Kuta is where it’s at if you’re after the hustle and bustle. It all started in this beach town which outgrew itself to one of Australians most visited beach destinations. The nightlife never bores, the beaches are wide and appealing, the surf is a bit crowded but great and the variety of restaurants goes from fantastic local eateries to great culinary experiences. The best Bali resorts in Kuta are often just a few minutes away from the beach which makes that the prices are generally a bit lower compared to the beach hotels in, for instance, neighbouring Legian. Our favorite stays in Kuta are locally owned boutique resorts that provide an authentic Balinese vibe which makes you feel right at home.
Amnaya Resort Kuta| Approx. 90 USD per room per night
With a distance of 100 meters to the beach, the Amnaya Resort Kuta might not be a front beach hotel, we do feel it’s worth your attention. This is a place where everything just feels right.
