Take a look at the best value hotels in Kuta.
Poppies Bali is an intimate three-pearl hotel located along bustling Poppies Lane 1, a short walk from both Jalan Legian and Kuta Beach. Although it's located in one of Kuta's busiest areas, the hotel's stunning tropical grounds create a tranquil ambience during the day -- however, you will hear nightclub noise at night. The property has 20 rustic cottages with open-air bathrooms, plus modern amenities like air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Facilities include a freeform pool, a poolside bar, a library, and a whirlpool. Both the hotel and nearby Poppies Restaurant were opened in the mid '70s and are an iconic part of Kuta's history. For a more resort-like experience, the nearby beach-front Bali Garden Beach Resort is worth checking out -- rates there can be lower at times.
Amnya Resort Kuta is an upscale hotel ideally located in the heart of downtown Kuta, a five-minute walk from Kuta Beach, Waterbom Bali, and Discovery shopping mall. The hotel features 116 modern suites with stylish contemporary interiors; the rooms are bright and airy and have spacious balconies, an open plan design, and quality modern amenities. On-site facilities include a long outdoor swimming pool, an all-day restaurant serving authentic Indonesian cuisine, a gorgeous spa, a fitness center, a lobby lounge, and a multifunction event space. Free extras like afternoon tea, shuttle services, Wi-Fi, and weekly cultural activities add value to the stay. As an alternative beachfront hotel option, Patra Jasa Bali Resort & Villas offers direct beach access and resort like facilities for slightly lower rates.
Febri's Hotel & Spa is a mid-range, 69-room family-friendly hotel located in the heart of Kuta. The hotel offers a rage of room types, including Family Rooms that can sleep up to five people comfortably. There are two outdoor pools, a full-service family spa, and a free hot and cold breakfast buffet. Wi-Fi is slow (even if you pay extra for the high-speed connection), and the property is not on the beach, but other than that, it's a safe, clean place to stay and is only 10 minutes from the airport.
Opened in 2013, this 92-room upscale hotel nonetheless offers budget-friendly rates, and is located near the main intersection in Kuta, close to area attractions and the airport -- but a bit far from the beach. The Kana Kuta has a nice outdoor pool, small fitness center, free area shuttle, and free breakfast. Rooms are minimally decorated but spotlessly clean, with high-quality mattresses and linens, and flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers; some rooms have balconies. The kids' center is a draw for families. The Kana Kuta might be slightly removed from the action, but it's good value for the money.
The Vira Bali Hotel is a three-pearl property with 56 rooms that's close to the airport, restaurants, and shopping, but removed from center of Kuta and its beach. Its rooms are spacious, if bland and unmemorable, and feature flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning. Some have furnished balconies, while others offer direct pool access, though bathrooms are dated across the board. The restaurant and bar is popular, and the list of freebies is long: breakfast, a welcome drink, bottled water, bicycles, Wi-Fi, and airport transportation are all included in rates. There's also a lovely, large pool and a decent spa for treatments and massages. As an alternative, the similarly priced Ramayana Resort & Spa is also near the airport and has a bit more personality plus more dining and activity options.
The 79-room Kuta Puri Bungalows is an upper-middle-range, traditionally designed hotel in a central but peaceful area with many sights, like Kuta Beach and Beachwalk shopping center, within fast walking distance. Classic Balinese-style rooms offer mini-fridges, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, and free bottled water, while some have terraces with seating and marvelous garden views. Beautiful plants and trees encompass two outdoor pools, and there is a poolside bar with drinks, but it closes early. Both the on-site restaurant and free breakfast are mediocre. There is a spa with traditional services and fantastic gardens surround the property and include fountains and koi ponds. For those that need to be on Kuta Beach, try the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel.
This 88-room mid-range boutique hotel is across the street from Kuta Beach, and close to several good restaurants and area attractions. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and air-conditioning. Beautiful Balinese tropical gardens line the grounds, and there is an outdoor pool with sun loungers and umbrellas. The beautifully renovated on-site spa offers a wide range of treatments, including aromatherapy, color therapy, and Ayurveda. Its Italian restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is a good place to watch the sun go down while sipping terrific (though a tad pricey) cocktails.
The mid-range Atanaya Hotel sits on the bustling Sunset Road in Kuta, about a 10-minute drive from Legian Beach and Double Six Beach. Its 109 rooms are attractive, and feature flat-screen TVs, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and mini-fridges. There are no gym or spa facilities, but the hotel has a striking rooftop infinity-edge pool with an adjacent bar. Also on-site is a restaurant serving Chinese and Indonesian cuisine, as well as an all-day cafe selling coffee and pastries. Wi-Fi is free throughout but can be spotty. Atanaya’s rates are quite competitive for a property of this caliber, but it's not within walking distance of tourist attractions. It's worth comparing rates with Hotel Terrace at Kuta, which is located just a five-minute walk from the beach.
The 30-room Green Garden Hotel is a family-run, budget hotel offering clean, pleasant rooms close to the beach, shopping, and the Ngurah Rai International Airport. Though the property is a bit dated and in need of some updates, overall it’s a cheap and cheerful option with a small, but lovely, outdoor pool flanked by greenery and an on-site spa offering an array of treatments. There’s also a restaurant and bar that’s popular with locals and guests alike that serves tasty home-style meals as well as a buffet breakfast that's included in the room rates. Families are drawn by the hotel’s larger Family Rooms, which have bunk beds, as well as other kid-friendly offerings like a kids’ pool and babysitting services. Travelers seeking something comparable in the area should also consider Febri’s Hotel & Spa, which offers similar rooms as well as an outdoor pool, kids’ playground, restaurant, and spa.
The 87-room Adi Dharma Hotel is a mid-range hotel located in a busy area just a five-minute walk to Kuta Beach. Traditional Balinese rooms have contemporary bathrooms and all have furnished balconies, but some look a little worn, with scratches on the furniture. Top features include outdoor pools, a garden, and a full-service spa. A free beach shuttle and 24-hour restaurant and bar are offered, but no fitness center. Guests desiring a more luxurious stay should consider the beachfront Patra Jasa Bali Resort & Villas, with its modern design and outdoor pools with ocean views.
The 88-room Hotel Terrace at Kuta is a mid-range property conveniently located right off of Kuta’s main road; the location is near shops and restaurants galore, and is a five-minute walk from the beach. This simple, modern property features minimalist interiors that include a restaurant in its open-plan lobby, which opens out onto the lovely outdoor pool area. Rooms are a bit small, but pleasant and simply furnished with contemporary decor. All of them have private balconies or terraces, some with direct pool access, though the larger Premiere Rooms have lackluster views. Frosted glass walls separating showers from bedrooms can pose privacy issues for some. Overall, this is a simple, modern property attracting travelers looking for a good value, though amenities are limited and guests seeking something with more features might want to consider the Green Garden Hotel instead, which has a spa.
This three-pearl, 113-room hotel is a five-minute walk from Legian Beach and close to many shops, bars, and restaurants. It's a bright, colorful property that attracts young travelers as well as families, given the low rates and relaxed atmosphere. Air-conditioned rooms include flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free spotty Wi-Fi, and furnished balconies with pool views. Family Rooms are available, and some rooms add outdoor showers. There's a long outdoor pool lined with sun loungers and a poolside bar, plus a restaurant serving international cuisines and a generous breakfast buffet for a fee. The hotel has a full-service spa, but it lacks a fitness center. Travelers might also want to consider the Legian Beach Hotel, which is across the road from the beach and adds a fitness center.
Masa Inn is a 314-room budget hotel located in downtown Kuta, a five-minute walk from Kuta Beach and 10 minutes from nightlife along Jalan Legian. The family-run property is nestled within a old-school Balinese compound featuring traditional architectural details. Features include two large swimming pools and a small breakfast restaurant, but little else. Rooms are affordably priced and spacious, and come equipped with air-conditioning, hot water, mini-fridges, TVs, and safes. Most rooms also feature balconies and have pool views. Decor and in-room features are dated, though, and include old tube TVs plus tired curtains and bedding. As an alternative, Dewi Sri features fresher rooms plus great facilities. The tradeoff? It's farther from the beach.
The 37-room mid-range Adi Dharma Cottages has gorgeously landscaped grounds and traditional Balinese architecture throughout -- all within a that’s a 10-minute walk from Kuta's restaurants, the beach, attractions, and bars. Large, simple rooms with Balinese accents have air-conditioning and free WI-Fi, and all feature balconies or terraces with seating (some with lovely garden and/or pool views). Exterior and traffic noise can be an issue, though, and some rooms show wear and tear. The outdoor pool with a kids area is a major plus here, as is the free, expansive breakfast. The on-site restaurant/bar also receives good reviews and there is a free scheduled beach shuttle. Guests looking to stay adjacent to the beach may want to try the Maharani Beach Hotel, though rates can be a bit higher and features like Wi-Fi are not free.
The 91-room Satriya Cottages is a mid-range property situated in the heart of Kuta, close to the beach, restaurants, bars, and shopping. The wild nightlife of Jalan Poppies 1 and 2 flank are just around the corner, but the hotel stays quiet. This property is packed with Balinese character, and the tropical grounds are lovely. Rooms are mixed, however, and while some offer a pleasant blend of modern and Balinese styles, others are looking tired. All have air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and furnished balconies or terraces. The two outdoor pools are big draws here, and the restaurant and bar serve a free breakfast. Travelers looking for a more modern option in Kuta could check out the Bintang Kuta Hotel, where guests also receive access to facilities at the neighboring Ramada Resort.
