Travel Review: The new Sheraton Kuta in Bali

STAY CLASSY IN KUTA. Kuta sometimes gets a bad rap for being the touristy center of Bali, but it’s impossible to deny that it’s also teaming with the energy of thousands of other people just itching to have a good time.

If you’re going to stay in Kuta, however, you should stay in style. The new Sheraton Kuta (Jalan Pantai Kuta, Bali; 62 361 846 5555; gives you one more option to do just that. It features contemporary Balinese taste and opulence seamlessly blended with state-of-the-art technology in each of its 203 rooms and suites. Step out onto your spacious private balcony for enchanting views of Kuta Beach and the Bali Strait, or walk through your door to a tropical social courtyard. Every piece of hand-selected furniture reflects a sense of character, including mother-of-pearl shell motifs that reflect the Indian Ocean.
