A Romantic Holiday in Kuta
Whether you are looking to impress a new partner in your life or perhaps take a break to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, Bali is perfect for a romantic getaway. With its glorious weather and beaches, and its tropical setting and temples adding a touch of the exotic and mysterious, Bali is ideal for experiencing with a loved one.
To make your stay in Kuta one to remember, you’ll want to pick a suitable romantic place to stay. Kuta throws up plenty of appealing hotel options, whether a boutique hotel inland or by the beachfront with shopping, restaurants and nightlife nearby. Hotels here suit a range of budgets, and even the cheapest will offer a swimming pool. Choose a small room with self-catering, where you can prepare an intimate meal after buying fresh local Indonesian produce, or treat your other half to a luxury resort that offers couples spa treatments.
Staying Near Kuta Beach
One of the bonuses of staying in Kuta is having its famous beach on your doorstep. This postcard-perfect sandy stretch is excellent for romantic barefoot strolls at any time of the day, but particularly at sunset.
If you really want to get into the spirit of Kuta, book a surfing lesson for two. The beach has barely any rocks or coral, so is considered perfect for beginners. There is a number of surf schools located on the beach, offering everything from short introductory lessons to three- and five-day courses that will take you to other well-known surfing spots around Bali.
Kuta’s Best Shopping
One of the benefits of staying in Kuta is that you will be near two of Bali’s biggest shopping hubs: Kuta Beachwalk and the Discovery Shopping Mall. Both are huge, sprawling complexes offering shops, restaurants and entertainment, with recognisable international brands and franchises, helpful for kitting you out for the beach or hitting the town later on. You can even catching a movie if you feel the need to relax. It also makes popping out for a surprise gift another possibility – whether you are the one doing the buying, or the one hoping that your partner might.
