Beachfront Bali mod resort in the historic heart of Kuta with a spa, bumping bar scene and funky pool
As might be expected from the name, heritage played a big part in the design of this beachfront hotel. Kuta’s past as a fishing village is evoked with nautical details referencing all aspects of seafaring, from carpets woven in a wave pattern to curving beams that look like billowing sails to aquariums stocked with tropical fish. It’s almost as if a vast ship has beached itself and turned into a hotel.
Bed & Bath
The four different room categories – Classic, Superior, Deluxe and Junior Suites – range from about 390 to 600 square feet. Highly polished wood floors; wavelike, brightly striped rugs; and sepia photos of historic Bali brillantly bridge the island's past and present. Open-plan bathrooms in most rooms remain open to the guest rooms and have relaxing rainshowers.
The resort doesn’t so much tick all the boxes as fill them in with all the colors of the rainbow. In addition to a serene spa, fitness center and pool, there’s Waves, the all-day diner and a pool bar. Most significant is Bob & Louise Lounge Bar – a tribute to Bali’s original hoteliers who set up a property on this site back in 1936.
In the Area
It would be hard to get bored in Kuta; simply pinball from shops to restaurants to beach to bars to clubs and then start all over again the next day. The Pro Surf School with you! And a beach massage at sunset will cost no more than a few dollars: a superb way to ease into the evening.
