Best Western Kuta Beach
Arriving at Best Western Kuta Beach was easy and a quick process for getting my room sorted. I was greeted by the receptionists with a smile on their face. They were all very friendly and were happy to help if I had any questions. I opened the door to my room and was impressed with a nice room layout – the interior was great and not too basic for a chain known for budget accommodation.
Best Western Kuta Beach is situated directly in the heart of Kuta. The beach is only 50 metres away, is surrounded by popular areas. Due to this, the hotel is in the perfect spot for surfers and travellers looking to get the most out of Bali’s most famous beach. At night you’ll run into lots of trendy clubs and bars and beautiful sunset spots to chill out.
The rooftop pool will give you a lovely view of the surrounding areas, so don’t forget to take a few pictures and unwind with a few drinks.
For my stay, I was in the Deluxe room which included a comfy double bed, high-speed wifi, private safe box, bathroom with shower, tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen LCD TV and much more in this cosy 22 sqm room. All rooms are equipped with WiFi, tea and coffee-making facilities and comfortable beds.
Dining at Best Western Kuta Beach
The restaurant at Best Western Kuta Beach serves both breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet is basic which includes the pancake station, salad bar, fruits, egg station, hot dishes, a variety of bread, Indonesian stall, juices, cereals and some soup. Keep in mind, it tends to get busy around, 7:30, however, for dinner, the meals available on the menu are great and there’s plenty of room available. My evening meal was delicious, I opted for a carbonara and it was one of the best throughout my stay in Bali. The red velvet latte was amazing and I’d highly recommend that.
