Where to go outside Kuta?

Hello!

In July we (two adults and to children, 7 and 9) will visit Bali. We are staying at Le Jardin just outside Kuta for 2,5 weeks. While we are there, we want to go somewhere else. Maybe for two-three nights max 1 hour drive from Kuta.

Any advice for us? Places and hotels. Thanks. :-)

I suggest Nusa Lembongan. We had 3 nights there at Hai Tide Resort in the villa, and it was wonderful. Felt like a completely different holiday to our Bali stay.

Hi Ane, kuta is more for party animals ( in my humble opinion ) since you are with young kids, you might want to stay 2.5 weeks somewhere quieter and serene place like Candidasa ( slightly far) if beach is preferred or ubud is nature is preferred. Ever Sanur is much better if you do not want to stray too far away

Hi Ane,

Firstly it would be nice to know where you are from. Easiest is to update your profile. Will help on the forum and others especially when you start to talk currency, insurance, visas, medical or anything really.

Suggest you also be clear about where you are staying. There is a "Le Jardin" a villa in Seminyak which "just outside Kuta" is technically correct, but just outside of Legian would be also correct but if you want exact info need exact info.

Why are you staying in one place for 2.5weeks.

1hr from Kuta will not get you anywhere really . Ubud is only 25miles away but you won't get there in 1hr.

Generally in Bali you won't average much more than 20mph/30kmh so take it into account in loking at distances on google maps.

Kuta/Legian area is great. We've stayed there a few times with young teens and love it. Don't be turned off it by people who have never stayed there, or its just not for them. Each to their own.
