Kuta hotels and villas have had decades of experience when dealing with tourists and it is this history of providing service that makes this area of Bali an exceptional place to stay. Kuta has grown from humble beginnings as a simple fishing village to what can definitely be considered as the main Bali tourist destination people flock to. Once the beaches were lined with fishing boats and fishing nets, now they are lined with sail boats and surf boards for rent.
Along the seashore where once stood the simple houses of the fishermen you will now find rows of excellent bars and restaurants, discotheques and others places of entertainment for your enjoyment, rows of kiosks selling souvenirs and other things to delight the tourists.

If you are on a tight budget then you will find simple yet clean boarding houses in the side streets of Kuta. These are very sparse in their furnishings, but if you are going to be out and about all day then they are perfect for someone more interested in spending money exploring the island.

Apart from hotels there are other types of accommodations to consider and villas are very popular. Villas give you the privacy that you have when living at home; they are almost a home away from home. Depending where your villa is situated, in the rain forest or at the beach, there will always be areas within the compound that you can sit and relax taking in the scenery.

The weather in Kuta is divided into two seasons, the wet season (October-March) and the dry season (April-September). Bali has become a very popular holiday destination for people from all over the world and most Kuta resorts are generally booked well in advance. To avoid disappointment in not being able to stay at the type of hotel you want to it is essential that you plan your trip well in advance and book your hotel for the time you will be staying there. Due to the weather conditions, April to September is an especially busy period.
If this is going to be your first trip to Bali, take the time to read all the information we have provided with regards the different regions and activities that are available. Many people visit different cities and vary their holiday regions between the beach, mountainous areas and more rural locations in order to experience everything that Bali has to offer, and it has so much diversity that staying at least two different locations will enrich your first visit to this wonderful island. With this in mind it is important to make sure that your various Kuta bookings are coordinated and you don’t end up with no where to stay for a night between adventures.
When you make a booking always make sure that you receive a confirmation email and double check that the correct amount has been taken from your credit card. Read the small print, most hotels have a clause somewhere that will state that any increase in their rates will be passed on to you even if you have booked and paid in advance. If this happens then you can contact them, best to try getting hold of the manager, and try getting them to honor the original price quoted to you, if you stick to your guns, generally they will either refund you or offer you some free meals or some other free benefit. One way to avoid this is to ask if you can just pay a deposit and then the balance once you get there, that way even if the rates increase you will not have to pay much extra.
During peak season Bali tourism is booming with people from all over the world and the hotels are very busy. To avoid the noise and disturbances of other tourists book a room that isn’t on the ground floor. The higher up you are the less likely you are of being disturbed by people coming and going into the hotel and by the noise of the traffic.
When you plan to take a trip to visit the paradise island that is Bali and need to book Kuta hotels, make sure you take the time to do a bit of research into the area. Bali is not just sea and sand, Bali is an amazing place to visit and experience a unique way of life that is both fascinating and addicting. To ensure your stay is a memorable one, plan your trip well and enjoy your stay.
Bali is a great place to visit and once you step off the plane you will be memorized by the beauty and culture. You are going to be a foreigner in another country-a tourist. The sign around your neck won’t be there, but it might as well be tattooed on your forehead. When we go on holiday we tend to forget that we are still living in the real world and that bad people can be living in our holiday destination.
The same precautions that you follow when at home should be followed when you are on holiday. Don’t leave your belongings unattended, keep an eye out for people loitering about that look out of place, and make sure your wallet, passport, jewelry etc is kept in a safe place.
When buying souvenirs at stalls and markets it is acceptable to do a bit of haggling in Bali, but because Kuta is such a big tourist attraction you may find it a bit difficult to get any real drop in price. Nonetheless it is always fun having a go.
Changing money is always a bit difficult in Bali, don’t forget that the wage difference between the western countries and Indonesia is huge and chances are that you will change a year’s wage for many Balinese people in one go. Some of the more elite Kuta Hotels may offer money exchange services, if not then ask their advice about the best place to go. Even the banks will probably give you less than the exchange rate is; you just need to accept this. One thing that you must never do is to change your money with street exchangers. You are just asking for trouble and will end up losing a lot if not all of your cash. When withdrawing from ATM machines keep an eye out and don’t let yourself be distracted.
If you follow this advice and just use some common sense, you can still enjoy your holiday without having any major mishaps, having your passport stolen will not only destroy your holiday, but can be really frustrating and cause you endless problems you don’t need and can easily avoid. The majority of Kuta hotels offer safes that you can keep your valuables in, use the service even if it costs you a bit.
