We expected Kuta to be a hell hole. Actually it has a lot to offer. Kuta Puri is a peacful hotel in a beautiful garden set in the middle of it all. It is 2 minutes walk from Kuta beach (wide, sandy, lovely sunset, lots of activity going on). There are inumerable shops and restaurants right outside the front door. The room was spacious, clean, nothing too special but fine. I would stay here again.
