Bastion of Beachfront Indulgence
Gaya Travel Magazine team recently experienced Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, an urbane and family-friendly property that is efficient and on-point. During our stay, we found that the property is exclusive and intimate, sporting an architectural style that attempts to bring as much natural light in as possible, making it brighter than many other places that we have stayed in Bali. The resort promises a contemporary vision of a tropical beachfront destination that has been developed specifically to elevate travellers’ experience when staying in Kuta.
Owned by PT. Indonesian Paradise Island, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is the only 5-star beachfront resort in Kuta, conveniently attached to an upscale open-air style Beachwalk shopping mall that has over 200 retail outlets. Set on a total area of 5.2 hectares of development, the resort is located directly at the heart of Kuta Beach and only five kilometres away from Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar.
We have come up with seven points why we love Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort:
- The resort’s rooms, especially the Ocean Front Suite, is homely, bright, airy, fuss-free and comes with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean or the resort’s signature social courtyard, including speedy Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the resort! All of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort’s 203 rooms – ranging between 46 and 265 metres squared – even have spacious private balcony.
- The rejuvenating spa treatments – especially its pampering and uplifting Balinese massage – dispensed by experienced and highly trained therapists of Shine Spa by Sheraton, one of The World Luxury Spa Awards 2016 winners! The spa is indeed a sanctuary for travellers to revitalise and indulge in signature treatments from east to west, blended with local Balinese touches.
- The chance to take in the breathtaking sunset view from the terrace of the resort’s light-hearted Italian restaurant called Bene, which happens to be one of the best places to enjoy sunset in Kuta and a great spot for chilling before dinner! Guests should take note that sunset in Bali is usually between 6:25 and 6:45 p.m. Another spot where guests could conveniently enjoy the sunset view is from The Lounge, located on the same level as the resort’s lobby – guests are welcome to laze on the loungers and imbibe locally-inspired cocktail at the space’s open-air balcony that opens to the resort’s pool below and Kuta Beach ahead.
- Flavourful cuisines at the vibrant open-kitchen all-day dining restaurant, Feast, located alongside Beachwalk’s patio overlooking the Kuta Beach! It has outdoor lounges that create invitingly an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Diners should taste the resort’s ikan bakar jimbaran, iga rendang and ayam bakar singaraja, to name a few.

- The resort’s well-equipped fitness centre that guests should utilise by following its lifestyle designed training programmes to keep fit! For children 12 years old and below, the resort offers Play@Sheraton Kids Club, the space where children can play and be entertained yet at the same time learn and explore Balinese culture, community and people.
- The resort’s kidney-shaped pool that is open to the breathtaking panoramic views of Kuta Beach and the Indian Ocean is simply perfect for guests to lounge and read a book or ogle at people or do nothing or take a dip, especially when the weather swelters!
- Bene’s authentic Italian fare that is accompanied by a vast selection of world-class wines while guests savour the mesmerising views of the surrounding skyline, Kuta Beach and the oceanic backdrop of Bali Strait, especially when they dine on the rooftop deck level!
