Accommodation



Kuta

A proliferation of large all-in resorts lines Kuta’s beachfront, although here the pools get the best view and you may be disappointed by the rooms. Note that in the northern part of Kuta, a busy road runs between the beach and the resorts. If you don’t plan to sit by the pool all day better value can be found away from the beach at one of the many family-orientated comfortable midrange hotels. Cheap chain hotels are sadly squeezing many of the family run homestays out of the market, but the unfortunate fact is they often offer better value (if you like a soulless box). The capsule dorm concept has flooded the market here too, and beds are available for as low as 60,000 rupiah, but for a little more rupiah, a pool and a bit of atmosphere make a more inviting offer. For folks who like Bali’s old-school charm, there’s still plenty of family run joints in the back lanes around Poppies I and II.

Lokal Bali Hostel is hands down our favourite hostel in South Bali. It's pricey for just a bed, but here you get way more than that. Closer to the airport than busy central Kuta, it makes it an excellent stopover if you’re in transit to other parts of Indonesia or beyond (if your bags are light, you could easily walk), yet it's still only a 10-minute walk to the beach. Hidden back from the... Read our full review of Lokal Bali Hostel .

One of Kuta’s originals, Poppies Cottages started life in the early 1970s, giving its name to the street on which it still sits. Over the years cottages have been added and upgraded, and the beautiful tropical garden has grown. Today the delightful hotel sits amid calm and lush surrounds, a world away from its namesake hectic laneway. Twenty private, well-appointed brick and thatch cottages...

It features low-rise, cottage-style rooms and villas within meandering tropical gardens punctuated with traditional carvings, water features and two swimming pools.
