In contrast to the brash international-style resorts along the Kuta beachfront, Alam Kulkul is unmistakably Balinese. It features low-rise, cottage-style rooms and villas within meandering tropical gardens punctuated with traditional carvings, water features and two swimming pools.

Opposite the beach at the Legian edge of Kuta and set back from the road behind a kulkul (traditional drum) tower, a mind-boggling number of room categories are on offer featuring traditional and modern Balinese decor.

Our picks are the stylish and immaculate newer rooms (with the telltale “new” in the name) however older rooms are well maintained too. Spacious and serene interiors are cool and restful with a palette of natural finishes and neutral colours enhanced with traditional carvings and textiles.

Standard facilities include air-con, TV, safe, tea-maker and minibar. Well-appointed bathrooms range from generous to compact, some with tubs. Furnished balconies or terraces offer pool or garden views—we love the lazy inviting built-in daybeds on some of the newer rooms.

Pool chilling is always an option.

The pools are small by resort standards, but we think that contributes to the intimate nature of this lovely resort—there are also ample day beds for lounging about under the tropical sun and the beach is a mere step away. A buffet breakfast is included in the rate and club benefits are available for higher category rooms and villas. Alam Kulkul boasts a couple of restaurants and bars, and an overwhelming choice is at hand outside the resort. Additionally an on-site spa offers pampering.

We love the authentic Balinese ambience of Alam Kulkul and think it's a good beachside option. If you’d prefer a more intimate guesthouse atmosphere consider D’Sriwing Villa Gallery or Poppies Cottages, or if money is no object, hightail it to The Sandi Phala at the southern end of Kuta Beach.
