Kuta is well known for its beach life, and of course, the beach bars.
There are many affordable warungs and shops around – such as market stalls selling beachwear and random knickknacks. Poppies lane is in Kuta, and is popular with surfers, backpackers and travelers who want budget accommodation.
Of course as a tourist hotspot, Kuta is naturally fettered with luxurious hotels of all shapes and sizes, so you can find great luxury resorts at affordable prices too.
For people who love to surf by day, and just party and drink by the beach with friends by night, Kuta is the place to be.
Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.
