Kuta and Legian may not be my first picks for locations to stay in Bali, but they do offer excellent value for money. Besides this, the location itself is by the beach, right next door to Seminyak, and pretty close to the airport. There are plenty of options when choosing where to stay in Kuta and Legian, from the different areas to the style of accommodation. So where to stay in Kuta and Legian?

Where To Stay In Kuta + Legian? Let’s Get Oriented.
Although Kuta and Legian may not be my first pick of locations to stay in Bali, there are definitely some reasons you would choose to stay here. But Kuta and Legian covers a lot of ground, and some areas are, in my opinion, better than others.
So where to stay in Kuta and Legian? I think it’s pretty important to stay either on the beach or not too far from it. Here you will get a sense of more space and openness than some of the smaller, busier streets in Kuta and Legian. You will also be able to easily start and end your day by the beach, which will give you a relaxing element to your stay. The main roads in Kuta and Legian are Jalan Kartika, Jalan Pantai Kuta, Jalan Legian Kaja and Jalan Raya Seminyak. If possible, avoid staying any further inland than these streets, so you can reach the beach and restaurants easily.

South Kuta (Tuban) is a great area for families, with some great resorts and Waterbom Park (water park) nearby. South Kuta also has one of the prettiest stretches of beach in this area, just south of the Kuta boardwalk along the beach. South Kuta has its perks, but otherwise, I would aim to stay as north as possible as central Kuta can be quite hectic. Although you are staying in Kuta or Legian, you may still find yourself wanting to shop and eat in Seminyak, and although it looks close on a map, if you need to get a taxi, there are certain times where the traffic can get really heavy and it can take longer than you would expect.
