The best aspect of the Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is its extremely convenient location on the Kuta beach in Bali. By adding diverse facilities for the guests to rejuvenate and relax, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort has become just the ideal place for the well-travelled looking for a good time amidst pure luxury and comfort.
A gust of sea breeze can be invigorating on any beach in Bali but the Kuta Beach located on the western side of the island’s narrow isthmus is considered special. One of Bali’s first tourist developments, Kuta is best known for its Indian Ocean surfing and party-centric atmosphere. Kuta’s long, consistent waves make it a popular surf spot, particularly for beginners, and plenty of outfitters offer board rentals and surf lessons.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is centrally located on Jalan Pantai Kuta, making it the perfect base from which to enjoy multifarious activities. It is just minutes away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban and the Beachwalk shopping mall, a shopaholic’s haven with over 200 shops in an open air architecture setting and a movie theatre is conveniently annexed to the hotel.
Vacation days are precious and your getaway should leave you inspired and recharged and this is exactly where Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort scores in a big way. It is the only 5-star resort in Kuta offering spacious rooms with glorious views of the Indian Ocean and from where Bali’s golden sunsets can be enjoyed in the ultimate of comfort, all year round. 203 guest rooms and suites exuding a warm and contemporary elegance are fitted with either a king sized or a double Sheraton signature bed, a spa themed bathroom with a free standing rain shower and a deep soaking tub with deluxe amenities.
The architectural design is pointedly contemporary, albeit with Balinese touches that are handled with restraint. The rooms have ceiling high glass doors leading onto a terrace or balcony which offers views of the Indian Ocean and the social courtyard landscaped with native plants and full of exotic tropical birds. The presidential suite not only offers breathtaking views of the Kuta beach but also has its own private sun deck and Jacuzzi. The Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort offers an astonishing range of activities and dining options.
The outdoor infinity edged pool with sundeck overlooking the Indian Ocean is the veritable heart of the resort. It lets you truly experience indulgent living and an invigorating and fun time can be enjoyed by the entire family with refreshing beverages and snacks from the Italian restaurant next door only adding to the pool’s magic.
Feast, the 160 seat restaurant plays around with bold magenta and an eclectic décor style to create a contemporary ambience best suited to discover international and local favourites. Perfect for families that want a little bit of everything, from fare inspired by many different cultures, to dishes that incorporate the local cooking traditions of Bali. The restaurant’s signature unique design also allows diners to interact with culinary masters who share each cuisine’s specialty and even prepare cook-to-order dishes.
Set against the oceanic backdrop and the Kuta Beach skyline, Bene serves up authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist. A wide range of signature dishes are created by fusing rich imported and fresh local ingredients with a family sharing food concept in mind. Bene offers three venues for dining: air conditioned indoor dining with show kitchen, an alfresco option by the pool and finally a breathtaking rooftop terrace option, amidst the most romantic of sunsets and star studded skies.
