Bottom Line

The 57-room Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort is an upscale, beachfront property with an elegant Balinese style and superb ocean views. Modern, handsome rooms have minibars, furnished balconies, and flat-screen TVs, and some have private pools and outdoor showers. There are awesome ocean views from two outdoor pools, where free fruit and drinks are offered each afternoon. The property also has a beachfront restaurant/bar, a serene spa with a hot tub, and a gym with a sauna. This is a good option for travelers seeking family-friendly accommodations downtown, though guests may also want to consider the nearby Padma Resort Bali at Legian, which has kids' activities, though is a bit farther from the beach.

Oyster Hotel Review

Bali Niksoma Boutique Beach Resort


An understated, contemporary hotel with traditional touches, a laid back atmosphere, and beach views

This quietly sophisticated hotel feels far removed from the busy tourist throngs that crowd Kuta's streets, despite being just a stone's throw away from the action. A favorite of couples and Australian tourists, the property also tends to draw families, who congregate around the gorgeous pools sipping cocktails while their kids splash around. Free fruit and drinks are served in the pool area each afternoon, adding to the easygoing feeling. A calm vibe also pervades the elegant, open-air lobby, which has the pitched roof, slick tile, low-lying couches, and rattan touches typical of many Balinese properties. Pretty potted orchids lend pops of bright white atop the wooden front desk and table at the center of the room, and free afternoon tea with coffee, snacks, and cocktails is served twice weekly. Fantastic ocean views can be seen from floor-to-ceiling windows inside Hitana Restaurant, where jeweled chandeliers offer fantastic contrast to simple wood and rattan furnishings. The outdoor seating area faces a vibrant green lawn, and guests can relax on rattan daybeds with purple throw pillows, or head into the white stone and wood bar, over which hang traditional-style lanterns. Grounds are simply landscaped, in line with the minimalist decor and emphasizing the blue ocean beyond.
