Travel Blogs from Kuta
After three weeks it was time to separate from Gonzalo´s parents. While they were going back to Chili, we kept on travelling and our next destination was supposed to be probably the most famous of all Indonesian islands - Bali. At least we managed to buy our flight tickets for the same date so all of us went to the airport of Sydney at the same …
The Lonely Planet says that “Ubud takes a Balinese holiday and makes it sublime”. This couldn’t be more true. Where else could you have a shower in a deep stone tub in your private villa’s outside bathroom...while gazing past a large stone reclining Buddha in your garden...ripe with the aroma of frangipani blossoms...list...Ubud, Bali, Indonesia hamiltonfamily
Let's skip the (mostly) unpleasant memories of Gili T. and move straight on to Kuta. Kuta is in the southwestern part of Bali. It is the Mallorca for Australiens. The Southeast Asian version of Ballermann.
Hundreds of pubs, clubs and shops line the narrow streets. You can get Gucci, Versage, Quicksilver, name it, they got it. All fake of cou...

Unfortunately, and despite checking in advance about an hour before arriving (they even had our email on the desk when we got there), we arrived and found that the standard room we wanted to book was not available and they wouldn't have any available for up to a month. We looked at other hotels in the area but this was the best of the budget hotels. The mid range rooms were also not available on our first night so we had to stay in the Superior rooms, which were also really nice, if a little tired. We moved to the mid range rooms the next morning and I actually think they are better as they are nearer the pool.
The pool is lovely and there are plenty of sun loungers, although no umbrellas and there isn't much shade there. Not many people seem to use the pool so we pretty much had it to ourselves for the first few days.
The large groups of young kids that stay here can cause havoc in the early hours. One group who had spent the day drinking around the pool causing families to leave the pool area got back in the early hours and all started fighting outside our room. There is supposed to be security but it never got broke up and the arguing went on for at least an hour. A group of girls next to our room woke us up four nights in a row at 5am in the morning shouting on their terrace to the point I gave up thinking the security guard would tell them to keep quiet and went out myself oin the end as we had to get up early for our flight the next morning. On the times we went out and arrived back in the early hours we always kept the noise down as there are more couples and families staying there.
Don't order the pancake for breakfast, it was always raw but the eggs were always good and the breakfast is on until late.
Also, if you are in the ground floor rooms, avoid leaving towels / clothes on the terrace overnight as the cats use them to sleep on - not good if you are allergic to them!
