Kuta - Bali is probably the most popular and certainly the most well-known resort destination on the island. Hotels in Kuta Bali are always high on the wish list of many visitors and Kuta Bali hotels include some of the most popular Bali hotels. Kuta is an icon in many parts of the world and for many people the world over it evokes thoughts of fun, surf, sand and sea. The attractions of Kuta are bustling nightlife, being the place for Kuta shopping in Bali and a myriad of Kuta Bali hotels and restaurants.
To many visitors, the neighborhoods of Tuban, South Kuta, Kuta and Legian are not really clearly defined, and most refer to all of these different sections as "Kuta". However, to make it easier to find hotels in Kuta Bali and not to confuse our visitors, we have separated the area into 3 sections. This page relates to Kuta as meaning the area from Kuta Square with the Matahari Department Store until just before the right turn at Kuta Beach Road. The area south of it or from the International Airport onwards has its own page, South Kuta & Tuban. The area just north of Kuta, can be found under Legian.
Kuta, with its famous stretch of beach and hundreds of Bali Kuta hotels, shops, restaurants, bars and nightspots, has been the "center of the action" in Bali for many years. It offers many smaller and moderately priced Bali Kuta hotels, bed and breakfast inns, as well as some larger, international standard hotels in Kuta Bali, several of which are located along the beach.
The main attraction along the beach is the Beachwalk Shopping Center. It offers a great variety of shops, eateries, a cinema and other interesting venues. It`s become a "must" to visit whilst in Bali.
Walking from the beach road in a southerly direction, towards Tuban, you will first reach Kuta Square with the familiar and ever popular Matahari Department Store. In the same area, one can find great deals for branded clothing, such as Levis, Polo, Prada, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana. The Kuta Art Market, just a bit further on, is a good place to bargain for local crafts, souvenirs, paintings, T-shirts, bags, sandals, sarongs and other casual wear. Continuing in this direction, more Kuta Bali hotels, shops and restaurants are to be found in this area called South Kuta. - Other options for nightlife and restaurants are concentrated along Jalan Legian, as well as in the lanes connecting this well-known main street with the Kuta beach road. Some of these areas are already part of Legian.
