“All change at Kuta Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Kuta is a great beach but far from the best in the area. However things are all set to change within the next few months as beachside warungs get moved to the new "art market" a little inland. Hopefully this will address some of the issues like cleanliness of the beach. But either way head a few kms either way and you will find cleaner, quieter and better beaches. April 2013 will see the start of development of 4 large resorts in the area - so see it now before it becomes like its namesake on Bali!

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Kuta Beach on south Lombok is quite peaceful with nice sandy beaches in a beautiful bay.
We ate at a beachside restaurant, but it took one and a half hours to get the food.

“Stay here instead of Sengiggi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I was amazed by the beautiful beach at Kuta and wish I had ignored some weird reviews of the Novotel Hotel and syaed there instead of Sengiggi, which was a tacky city that I found hard to believe was a tourist destination. My day trip to Kuta was the highlight of my 3 nights in Sengiggi so that says it all, really. Next time, I will stay at Novotel and then head north to Sire beach and the Gillis. It's stunning here .... Truly!

“Beautiful sunsets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We didn't ever swim here but came down to some of the bars for a sundowner & the colours are just beautiful. The Eastern beaches are much nicer and cleaner for swimming.

“Breathtaking Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The most beautiful beach I've seen so far. The water is jade like green, the sand is one of a kind.. unlike normal beach sand that are powder like, the sand at Kuta Beach lombok is more like tiny grains of pepper that are beige in color, really beautiful and soft.The water is really calm and inviting. The scenery is breathtaking and I just couldn't believe that such place exists in Lombok.

The downside is, this area is not well managed, at all. they have ATM machines near the beach but none of them are working, Not much of decent food stalls available, we can see bunch of garbage cluttered the area and the worst of all is the annoying craft sellers that keep pushing you to buy from them and even begged for money.

Other than the annoying things I saw when I was there, the visit was worth it. This place should be on your 'must visit' list when you are in Lombok.
