Planning on taking the kids to Waterbom and want to avoid the traffic? Alaya Kuta scores a good location tucked in behind the popular water park and offers a relaxing sophisticated style that adults will enjoy too.

The striking brick-red painted multi-storey hotel is built around a courtyard swimming pool with air-con rooms either facing toward the pool or outwards. Don’t expect much of a view, though they have balconies furnished with comfortable daybeds.

A handful of ground floor pool-access rooms offer a small private courtyard garden. Spacious contemporary interiors enjoy understated luxury with modern Balinese touches. Stone tiles, pale wood and a neutral palette are cool and calming, a reprieve from the busy streets outside. Comfy beds sport thick mattresses and luxe linens with boxes ticked for all the modern amenities you need to make a stay comfortable and stress free. Bathrooms in some rooms are open plan, with just the shower and toilet enclosed by clear glass and giving the room an overall impression of a larger space, however curtains can be drawn for the more modest.

Studio-style suites add additional seating and dining areas, plus tubs in the ensuite. The family suite consists of interconnecting junior suite and deluxe twin rooms and is ideal for adults who require a bit of privacy after the offspring have ventured into la la land and for kids who want to watch cartoons in peace.

The inviting swimming pool, a shimmering rectangle of aquamarine, is long enough for a decent lap with a shallow section for the kids. Ample shaded sun lounges mean you won’t have to rise early to bag a spot with your towel. Included breakfast offers a mix of a la carte and a small buffet selection, served in the modern poolside restaurant. For a bit of time out, enjoy some peace in the library lounge, indulge in a spa treatment or get the heart pumping in the gym.

We like the relaxed style of Alaya Kuta, but it’s not like a resort that you’ll want to hang around at all day. If you plan to be out and about at the beach, waterpark or sightseeing, it’s an ideal spot for a relaxing afternoon swim and a comfortable sleep.

Friendly staff mentioned they are often full, so bookings are essential—check online for deals as walk-in rates were a little steep and the hotel’s website even higher. If you’d prefer to stay at the Legian end of Kuta, The Magani also offers tranquil sophisticated rooms—our pick there is the premier pool room with private plunge pool.
