Friendly staff, excellent location and comfortable rooms make Serela Legian a solid pick in this part of town. Despite its name, Serela Legian sits on the edge of Kuta (as we define it) near Jalan Melasti, so named as to not confuse it with their other hotel on Jalan Raya Kuta, further away from the beach.

Set back from the road, the unusual facade of this modern multi-storey block dripping with a cascade of creepers enticed us in. We were not disappointed by the equally unusual contemporary style of the compact but comfortable rooms. The U-shaped block surrounds a decked courtyard pool, hidden from the street by the open lobby and modern cafe.

Modern and stylish rooms.

Rooms overlook the pool or the street—request a pool view for a quieter more pleasant outlook. Superior and deluxe rooms are the same size and offer the same facilities, but deluxe adds a small balcony, which is worth the extra 50,000 rupiah as the rooms are rather a tight squeeze, and although it’s unfurnished, it makes the room seem larger. Suite rooms are marginally more spacious, and located on the ground floor opening to the pool. Although small, the rooms feel more luxurious than many others at this price point.

Modern and stylish air-con interiors feature light-coloured polished cement walls with an earth-toned geometric padded headboard and pale wooden built-in furnishings that include ample storage and a small desk. Bouncy twin or double beds look crisp and comfy with smart white linen. Facilities include TV, a small safe, tea kettle and a (limited number) of mini-fridges on request. Clean hot-water ensuite bathrooms are equally compact, but a window (with privacy shade) allows in plenty of light (and a free show for your room mate if desired).

The decently sized tiled mosaic pool is complete with a running water feature that buffers any potential street noise. Sun loungers and hanging egg-chairs offer a spot for the sun worshippers, but little shade. Hanging foliage and a couple of bare-looking frangipanis green up the surrounds. Buffet breakfast is included in the rates we were quoted, but cheaper online deals are available sans brekkie, and plenty of decent cafes are nearby.

For a bit more of a spend, larger contemporary-style rooms are on offer at The Akmani Hotel, and as well as a courtyard pool they offer a rooftop pool. If a pool isn’t a necessity (after all, the beach is nearby and free), compact, clean budget rooms can be found at the Indonesian chain Grand Mas Plus Legian (also in Kuta), if you don’t mind the somewhat tacky plastic-style decor.
