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. Unashamedly hectic and noisy, this is where Bali’s young clubbers and surfers gravitate to in their thousands.
Modern day Kuta is an urban sprawl of cheap guest houses, boutiques, bars and the island’s most eclectic nightlife. The resort also boasts plenty of luxury options especially at tranquil Tuban beach.
Dining out is one of its major pleasures and offers every conceivable choice from elegant beachfront bistros to cheap and cheerful streetside food stalls. Away from the beach there is a myriad of exciting activities for all ages including hair raising bungy jumps, go karting and one of Southeast Asia’s finest aqua parks.
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.
