Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located in the centre of Kuta, the Hard Rock offers a trendy setting, like the Hard Rock Cafe located next door. The hotel is full of very modern equipment and a well-considered decor that nonetheless has nothing to do with Balinese style. This hotel is better suited to those out for a good time than those looking to enjoy the best of Bali.

    Location 8.08 /10

    This hotel is in the heart of Kuta, 2 miles from the airport, or 5 to 20 minutes by car, depending on traffic conditions.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    Lively colours, "fashion" furniture, stereo system, signed photos of musicians... hardly true Balinese style but both decor and equipment are definitley 5*. The standard rooms ("superior") are large (376 ft²) and offer satellite TV (19 channels) variable air conditioning, telephone, mini bar and 24hr room service. The bathroom is very original and offers 5* facilities (large corner bath).

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Built in 1998 in the heart of Kuta, the Hard Rock is a modern three-storey building covered in an attractive Klein blue livery. The building, containing 418 rooms, is accessible from a reception building containing both the reception and a large bar decorated in a "musical style" and organised around a handsome central bar. The decor style is clearly modern and "trendy". Though the lack of authenticity is lamentable, the services offered are of the highest quality. Services available: spa, gym and kids club, all brand new and fantastically equipped. There is also a Karaoke bar, radio station, music shop and an outdoor 43,040-ft² swimming pool, complete with artificial sand-covered island with beach volleyball. Other "eccentric" touches: the availability of a recording studio allowing guests to record their own single, average cost USD 50.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The Hard Rock has 7 restaurants and bars. The 250-cover main restaurant has a pleasant look with high ceiling and teak-bordered-bay window. Couples can dine intimatley in wooden booths surrounding the swimming pool. The menu offers a large choice of Mediterranean, international, Balinese, Chinese and Japanese specialities, as well as dishes offered in the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant. Dinner is on average 37,000 rupiahs per head. The wine list is more than sufficient, offering 30 or so French, Australian, Californian and New Zealand wines (approximately 500,000 rupiahs).

    To know

    The hotel nestles alongside the bar of the same name. It is on the other side of the road running the length of Kuta's large public beach.

      A good reputation, a pleasant park, and various restaurtants, the Bali Garden is a "mid range" hotel, well located in Kuta. However, it does not quite reach the same standard as the majority of the 4* hotels on the island.

      Set amid the greenery, this property consists of 4 atypical villas that are both huge and well spaced out. The Villa Mathis is in fact run by a Belgian couple and is the ideal destination for a group holiday with friends or family, in beautiful, comfortable, and modern surroundings that reflect the colourful Bali lifestyle. You might be interested to know that you can hire out the entire villa for a private reception should you so wish. It's a shame though that the beach, which isn't exactly nearby, isn't suitable for water sports or swimming.

      • Location 3.0

      This hotel stands out from the rest of the establishments in the area for its rather daring and original concept: composed of a series of villas offering upscale hotel services, it is located in a very isolated spot. Edged by rice fields and facing the sea, the establishment is located an hour along the coast from Seminyak. It must be said that the concept has proven a real success, especially teamed with the hotel's very pleasant modern architecture and wonderful facilities mostly aimed at couples seeking a private retreat. What's more, those who enjoy face and body treatments will love the hotel's spa, with its elegant dim lighting, but if it's a beach you're after, you may be disappointed.
