Top Places To Visit in Kuta
Hotels and Homestays in Kuta
Weekend Getaways from Kuta
We reached Denpasar at around 9.30 pm local time. The Ngurah Rai International Airport was small but eye catching. Kuta was where we were staying that night. We had booked a villa at 'Deluxe Sunset Loft' through Airbnb, and our host had arranged for our pickup from the airport. It is about 9 km from the airport and we reached within no time. Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge Bali by just going around Kuta. I don't intend to say that Kuta isn't beautiful, but it's nothing out of the world, and certainly won't live up to the hype that Bali creates in our minds.

Jimbaran is a small town in South Bali which is 11.4 km from Kuta. The Jimbaran beach area is one of the best areas to explore walking. The beach is calm and best suited for swimming. The south end stretch of the beach is quiet and pleasant. The enchanting hold of this place on you grows stronger at sunset. As the sun lowers, you will be content just gazing at its beauty. Make sure you don’t miss it. You may even treat yourself to a soothing massage at Ayana Spa. Treatments usually include sugar scrubs, body wraps, aroma-therapy and reflexology and these are the ones you should indulge in.
Lot of amazing cafes, restaurants, Bars & night club..!! Fantastic Shopping.. Very lively place in South Bali! While diving I met a girl from Swiss who was working in China. Apparently she became my Diving buddy! After we finished Diving, we planned our trip ahead to Seminyak.. We made more friends enroute.. Friends from Philippines.. We visited Tanah Lot as it is considered to be one of the most beautiful sunset points in Bali! Since it was our last day and we did not know when would we meet next.. We went partying at Potato Head Beach Club! It would be one of the best located clubs with an infinity pool facing the sea! It was just one of the best trips of my life..! I miss Bali..!
Legian Beach adjoins the Kuta Beach and is another popular beach in the Legian Area. The area is bustling with exotic luxury hotels, street shopping, wall art, handicrafts and paintings, local cuisine restaurants and beach wear. Time to tingle your taste buds by trying out some Indonesian Cuisines here.3. Nusa Dua Beach - Breathtaking Coastline
This beach is very cozy and quiet as it is located on behind the cliff. This atmosphere is suitable for tourists that want a relaxing and do sunbathe. Behind its serenity, this beach has big waves, so it attracts a lot of international tourists’ attention.The attractiveness of this beach is its clean and bluish sea water that makes you want to stay longer. You can play with sand, strolling around the coast or just sitting back.
Paragliding at the Pandava Beach This is one of the best things we did in Bali (another bucket list ticked, while I would like to do it again but in a different terrain now). Its best to book it online in Bali. The guys are super safe and not for a moment did I feel scared or unsure. Within moments of getting into the gear I was up in the sky with wind in my hair, sun on my face and clear blue water and white sand underneath. Pandava beach is one of the best beaches in Bali &amp; the view was spectacular. It was a ride of a lifetime, till I started feeling sick (guess my vertigo problem kicked in ☹️). Overall, it’s a must do in Bali
Next on our list was the most amazing Tegallalang rice terraces. The sheer beauty and nature leaves you speechless and awestruck. Pls wear very comfortable walking shoes if you are keen on trekking through the rice terraces and taking some awesome pictures (which by the way I strongly recommend). In the evening, we did what we do best - Shopping and Bargaining!!! Any Ubud trip is incomplete without a visit to the Puri Saraswati temple, which opens to visitors only once in a while.
It was love at first sight. Cafe Seminyak is located on one of the busiest and the most commercial roads in Seminyak. A cozy place, with lovely ambience, it made me fall in love next with the most famous Indonesian dishes - the Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng. If you are someone who likes your food slightly on the spicy side, you need to make sure to tell them about your preferences, else you'll have to put up with bland food. After a satisfying meal there, we hopped to Bintang Supermarket for .. Flavored Yogurt! You have to try those when in Bali! We were exhausted by then, and decided to head back to our suites, when we accidentally stumbled upon a place, which I'm sure is nothing short of heaven to all the Nutella lovers - Nutella Bar, a Nutella themed cafe - all Nutella delights under one roof! Everything we discovered in Bali made us fall in love with it more! But this was just the beginning. If 2 days in a place can make you adore it, imagine what staying there for 8 days would do to you!
The Library Seminyak
If you are a great lover of coffee and some scrumptious breakfast, then you should certainly head to this place. The food is really delicious and the coffee is outstanding. The place is fairly priced and the service is really good. Since i am a pure vegetarian and the menu had very limited veg options, the staff was very open on customizing the dishes for me.
Galuh Bali Spa
When you are at the land of massages how can you not try the authentic balinese massage. Balinese massage is an approach to massage developed in the Indonesian province of Bali, with influence from the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. Balinese massage techniques include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion, and application of essential oils. The practitioner may also apply stone massage. The combination of manual therapy and aromatherapy is intended not only to relax the patient and loosen fascial restrictions, but to stimulate the lymphatic system and the flow of blood. The usual cost of a 60 minutes balinese massage at this place would cost you around $100 USD although due to the reference of a known person and some negotiations, we snatched the deal at $75 USD.
You can spend days walking along Jalan Legian. The street is lined with shops and boutiques and has everything from local designers to home wares to DVDs and Bintang singlets, and some more really unusual ones. . This strip suits every budget and all shoppers. You don’t need to buy anything but just watch and enjoy the haggling and the crass t-shirts and the bad braids people have had done.
Queen's Tandoor - Seminyak
Yah, I know that. We cannot do without one, no matter how much you keep mentioning those pictorially beautiful looking cuisines on your profiles. When it comes to food, we do not last more than 2 days without our food. Well, you won't be disappointed here, at least. The Queens of India comes as a heavenly rescue for the Desi foodies. You can order and eat almost any Indian cuisine here - North Indian, South Indian, Mumbai Chopatti, Bhel and :pAnd guess what, you will find find more 'Pardesis' here lining up for Indian Food that the Indians themselves. Which tells me something- Indians Rock, so does their food- even globally.
