Bali Hotel Picks - South Kuta Hotels on Jalan Kartika Plaza, Tuban

By

The best Kuta hotels you can find are all on Jalan Kartika Plaza (formerly Jalan Dewi Sartika). Tuban Beach is only a few minutes' walk away from this avenue, as are Discovery Centre shopping mall; restaurants ranging from simple warungs to high-end dining choices; convenience stores; the Waterbom fun park; and the notorious "Bali Slingshot" ride (motto: "Kiss your Arse Goodbye").

Here's a list of resorts on or near Jalan Kartika Plaza - the accommodations featured here are arranged by price, representing a wide range of budgets and accommodations. Consult our list of Bali hotels for hotels in other Bali locations.

1. Dynasty Bali

Dynasty Bali is a sizeable family-friendly resort, located where the action is in Kuta, but offering more than your money's worth of luxury in all the right places. It's sparkingly clean and spacious, with over two hectares of well-manicured space.

The Dynasty Bali is definitely nota romantic getaway - its too family-oriented to breed romance. However, families and friends will find everything they want in the Dynasty Bali: easy access to Jalan Kartika Plaza and its many diversions, pleasant rooms at affordable rates, and a great breakfast at the Piazza dining level.

2. Febri's

Febri's offers great value for Bali visitors - it offers clean rooms, a good spa experience, a pool, friendly service, family-friendly facilities, and a fair distance to Kuta’s attractions. The place is warm and friendly, with little touches that allow Febri's to withstand comparison with any of the resorts along Jalan Kartika Plaza.

The facilities are excellent, with two that stand out: the spa offers terrific value, with good service for an average of $25 per session; and the pool is surprisingly large, with a fountain in the middle and concrete elephants spouting water around its perimeter.

3. Ramada Bintang Bali Resort

The Ramada Bintang Bali Resort is one of the bigger establishments on Tuban, with a beachfront view and 404 rooms to choose from, all set in lush manicured garden surroundings.

The Ramada Bintang's pool is sizeable, featuring a waterfall, a pool bar, and a children's wading section. Two Jacuzzis (hot and cold) are located close by. The restaurants offer a great variety of choices, but its high prices don't make any sense, considering that many decently-priced restaurants are just a few minutes' walk away on Jalan Kartika Plaza.

Among Kuta's budget hotels, the Green Garden Hotel offers an ideal mix of factors: a central location in Tuban, close to the shopping and partying destinations in town, and adequate facilities that can hold its own among higher-starred hotels. If you're not expecting too much from your stay of choice, then Green Garden is the ideal place for you.

Visitors can choose from 31 rooms, and have the run of the pool (which runs to the small side of things). Other facilities include a gym offering fitness and spa treatments, and an attached restaurant.

Bali Rani is an excellent budget choice for visitors who want to stay close to Jalan Kartika Plaza. The location is hard to beat - it's across the street from Discovery Mall, and right next door to Waterbom water park. The resort does not have direct access to the beach, however - it's a ten-minute walk away, and you'll have to cross the street to get there.

Wi-fi has just been added to the facilities, but only guests staying close to the lobby may be able to access it.

Guests may choose from 36 Bungalow standard rooms, 42 standard rooms, 32 Superior rooms, 12 Junior suites, 4 Executive suites and 4 Bungalow suites. Inna Kuta has direct access to Kuta Beach.

The restaurants on site are all right, with the additional feature of an open stage that showcases Balinese culture performances on Fridays. A woodcarver is also stationed in front of these restaurants, waiting to carve your name onto a block of wood for a souvenir of your stay.

Despite its proximity to busy Kuta nearby, the Vira Bali Hotel is quite insulated from noise by the hotel's spacious layout. The real revelation is the service - the staff shower friendly smiles and go-the-extra-mile attention upon their guests.

Surfing guests will appreciate the proximity to the beginners' stretch of Kuta beach, about fifteen minutes' walk away from the hotel. Kuta Square is about the same distance away, as is Discovery Mall. The hotel shuttle service can bring you to the thick of Kuta beach, but you'll have to find your own way back.
