Compact Kuta and Tuban (or South Kuta Beach as it was renamed in 2009) offer hotels anywhere from five-star fabulous to the fringes of ferocity from one door to the next. On Jalan Raya Kuta, along the stretch of beach north from Tuban through to Legian, you'll predominantly hit large beach resorts for families, several stylish and secluded boutique digs, and loads of simple garden hotels that present great value. Snake around the nearby alleyways and you'll discover some hidden treasures, as well as the most basic of bed-and-breakfasts and party-style pads reserved for insomniacs.
