According to the Jakarta Post, which was once a hippy destination, is now one of the most popular places in Bali to visit. During the 1960s and 1970s apart from the Grand Inna, which was owned by the government there were no other hotels to stay at and only the wealthier could afford to stay here, so others had to be more adventurous and stay in tent.
Tenters soon connected with local villagers and began to rent floor space in their homes. Fast forward to the 1990’s when suddenly the entire world became aware of Kuta and the sleepy village where hippies hung out became one of them most popular Bali destinations.
Today there are plenty of places to stay. Hotels have exploded all over Kuta, and there are beautiful Kuta villas to rent for those that prefer a more private, relaxed atmosphere with a little more space to call their own.
