“Close to Beach and Nightlife but 'AWAY' from noise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Alam KulKul is nicely located the beach is just one crosswalk away, and plenty of food choices within 30 min walk in multiple directions. The grounds are crisp and clean, the pool is acceptable, and it feels very safe. The breakfast buffet is fine if its included in the price, but expensive (18 USD?) as a stand alone. Our most basic room was adequate, but not exceptional, the bathroom plenty big, the closets large. The only 'issue' - our toilet bubbled when someone nearby flushed - weird but not a negative (luckily!)

Room Tip: A room near the pool may be nice for families, but probably not for couples wishing some peaceful pr...

The resort was at the end of Pantai Kuta Road, slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta, but it's beach front, so you'll have easy access to the Kuta/ Legian beach. It has the traditional Bali atmosphere with nice garden along the pathway to the rooms. The villas look nice and big. We had the family room which was almost at the back of the resort. Room was big, clean with all the necessities with robes and slippers too. Breakfast was sufficient to start the day. Check-in/ out services was fast. A 15 mins walk along the Pantai Kuta Road will get you to the Hard Rock Cafe, while passing by the Beachwalk Mall, cafes, Mc Donalds, mini marts and other hotels. If your feet are tired, just hail a taxi back to the hotel, for around 20K IDR or check out the roadside spas for cheap foot/ body massage..

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pools looks nice,

Our stay at Alam KulKul was our fifth trip to Bali as a family. The stay was during the second week of our trip, and overall was a very lovely stay.
The location was close to perfect, although the one-way road made it difficult to get to certain places. The staff was lovely, and we didn't have a single problem with them. The hotel and rooms were very nice, except we were given a room at the very back of the hotel. The hotel is very big, so the walk we had to make numerous times a day eventually took it's toll. If you are thinking of staying here, make sure you request a front room. We hardly ate at the restaurant, but did have lunch there one day and it was very nice. Overall it was a very nice hotel in a very nice location. Full credit to the staff just don't get stuck with the back rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the front of the hotel are ideal

We had booked this resort at the last minute, when we realized that the hotel we'd originally booked was a 3 hr drive from the airport. (Word of warning for first timers in Bali - do not underestimate the size of the island)
The set up of the hotel is very traditional. The open areas, the restaurant etc. have a lot of character to them. Ours was a 4-bed deluxe room and it was pretty functional. The cottages looked way more traditional though. The staff is very cheery, friendly and helpful. They set us up with a good cab to go around the place and also referred us to some water sports etc. around the island. The Italian restaurant in the hotel serves very decent food (try their Volcano pizza) and the best part about the hotel is that it's right across the road from the beach. You can walk to the beach at any time of the night. The Legian area, however did not seem too family-friendly. It's more of the younger crowds.

Stayed here last year and came back again this year. Great room pay the extra to get a pool frontage room. We original were given a room with the outside shower and toilet however there were SO many mozzies (literally hundreds) so we requested to change and were given a pool frontage room. I would recommend this place.. Right across the road from the beach and 15 min walk Into kuta and lovely eateries, markets just around the corner.

My wife and I have stayed at the Alam Kulkul on two occasions with no major issues or problems at all. The hotel is in a great location straight across from the beach and only a short walk to the markets and restaurants. Staff were helpful and the complimentary drinks at the restaurant bar were a great addition. Rooms are a little dated, but still great value for money.

We have just returned from a 12 day stay in Bali. Alum Kul Kul is a lovely resort but,, we received a letter on arrival to say the main pool was under repair. Also, we were in a family room and I had asked to be away from Mosquitos as my two daughters are allergic. we were told we would be looked after in regards to this. Well our room was swarming day and night and they got bitten. The solution.....4cans of insect spray. I asked for mosquito nets but denied. Friends stayed in a quad room, free of Mosquitos. I'm sure we could have been accommodated to one of these rooms. Chlorine in pool very strong to the point that we would go 2doors down and swim in their pool. With four families staying there not one will return. a pity because the staff were lovely.

Room Tip: Try to get a Villa to get mosquito nets!!
