Just a 10 minute taxi ride away from Bali’s Ngurah Rai airport is Kuta, the biggest, brashest and most colourful beach resort in Indonesia.

Dining out is one of its major pleasures and offers every conceivable choice from elegant beachfront bistros to cheap and cheerful streetside food stalls.

Kuta guide - hospitality, sightseeing and beach fun
Hectic Kuta may not be to everyone’s taste but it does have an irrepressible sense of fun that is utterly unique in Indonesia. The nightlife scene is a vibrant one with colourful nights out guaranteed whatever your age.
Kuta’s major draw is its spectacular golden sands which stretch for over five miles and produce some of the most breathtaking ocean sunsets in Asia. Kuta is a great place to base oneself before exploring the cultural centres of the island.
Kuta beach plays host to the most vibrant surfing scene in Indonesia and a laid back bohemian charm that is pretty intoxicating. Kuta has the best infrastructure outside the capital of Denpasar which will provide you with all the freedom you need to get out and explore this fascinating island yourself by motorcycle or car.
