We had the pleasure of witnessing the opening and being one of the first guests of ALOFT Bali Kuta on April 1st, 2022.
Catering to the tech-savvy, music-loving crowd, the 175-room hotel animates the brand’s bold passion and sassy personality through intriguing dining space, varied music lineup, and eclectic live events to tune up the neighborhood of Kuta.
Ramesh Jackson, Area Vice President – Indonesia, Marriott International said, “We are excited to unveil the second Aloft hotel in Bali. With international borders opening, we look forward to welcoming international travelers to one of the most popular leisure destinations in the region. The opening of Aloft Bali Kuta marks Marriott International’s
25th property in Bali and further complements our commitment to growth in Indonesia, bringing a diversified portfolio for different types of travelers to this popular leisure destination.”
Located just a 15-minutes drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, the hotel offers easy access to Beachwalk, Bali’s largest lifestyle complex, and is just a stone’s throw away from various entertainment and dining options in the vibrant Kuta area. Popular points of interest near the hotel include the famous Kuta Beach with its Instagram-worthy sunset views, the water park – Waterbom Bali, Kuta art market, Bali Swing, and many more.
During our stay, we had the chance to taste one of their signature cocktails aptly named “K-Pop”. This pink drink is sweet and captured the hotel’s sassy personality.
Designed to impress the self-expressers, Aloft Bali Kuta personifies a “different by design” philosophy, where the modern spirit meets local culture. The hotel design concept was influenced by the energetic vibes of Kuta beach, Aloft’s music passion point, and the lively location within Beachwalk. Upon arrival, guests will immediately immerse in the funky music beats and be visually spoiled by the multi-colored ceiling lights display. The reception area features an Aloha desk with a life-size shark head and tail, making it iconic and Instagram-worthy. The ocean-inspired design does not stop there, it continues along the hotel corridors and guest rooms.
The hotel is home to 175 stylish and inviting guest rooms designed with the brand’s signature artful and innovative loft-like layout in mind. All guestrooms are furnished with sleek platform beds, sitting areas, private balconies, and modern bathrooms complete with a walk-in rainfall shower and clutter-free vanity area. The bathroom itself may be one of our favorite parts of the room, due to its rainfall shower and strong water stream.
Each room is equipped with fast & complimentary Wi-Fi access, 55-inch LCD TVs, Bluetooth speakers, and mobile key access, which allows guests to go keyless and use their smartphones to lock or unlock their rooms.
The hotel’s lobby design is hip and modern, with a touch of inspiration from the sea. It is adjacent to the spacious Re:mixSM lounge, where guests can relax, connect and play billiards or other various fun interactive games.
Aloft Bali Kuta is home to various dining options to satisfy guests’ cravings. The hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant, DEPOT by ALOFT, offers an international breakfast buffet, a la carte lunch, and a dinner menu with signature bowl presentations to showcase the bold flavor of Pan-Asia and Western dishes. The brand’s signature W XYZ® bar serves up crafted cocktails and light bites for guests to enjoy over live music as part of the brand’s signature Live @ Aloft Hotels music program, showcasing lively performances by local emerging artists within a vibrant social scene conveniently located next to the W XYZ bar, Re:fuel by AloftSM allows guests the option to grab-and-go 24/7 from a selection of flavorful light meals and smart snacks and drinks before or after exploring the city.
“At Aloft Bali Kuta, we offer a fresh new lifestyle in the heart of Kuta which is sure to become the hottest social spot in the area. Kuta is the ideal spot for the next generation of travelers, being best known for its beaches, sunsets, vibrant streets, and heartwarming Balinese culture. We are excited to welcome our members and guests to a hotel experience like no other,” said Marie Browne, General Manager of Aloft Bali Kuta.
Additional facilities include a 24/7 Re:charge fitness center and the hotel’s not-so-square Splash Pool, where guests can relax in cool waters while being surrounded by tropical landscapes and Bali’s warm sunshine.
The hotel also offers three Tactic not-so-average meeting rooms and a dedicated pre-function area, which can accommodate up to 14 guests. Each room features a bold design with vivid carpet and tech-advanced amenities, including natural eco daylight, a built-in screen, and a projector.
