Versi Bahasa Indonesia:

Everyone knows Kuta as the heart of Bali’s most popular tourist spot, where you can find restaurants, bars, shops, the stretch of the famous Kuta beach, and bustling streets with different vendors calling out to you every 10 seconds to get you to buy that batik skirt. Kuta is where everything happens.

When night falls and you’re slightly tipsy from all that partying and booze, don’t you simply want to find a quiet spot where you can rest for the night, away from the dance beats and crazy traffic?

These hotels not only offer a peaceful oasis in the middle of the busy town centre at super affordable prices, you get to take that refreshing morning dip in their rooftop pools too!

So if you’re heading to Kuta for some post-dinner drinks and party (and repeat this for days), or just simply want to join in the excitement in town, you know where to stay at!
