The buzzling street life, stalls and shops of both cheap finds and branded outlet stores occupied by a number of tourists on barefoot with surfboards on tow served as my recollection of the Kuta Beach in Bali. A year ago, we only spent an afternoon lounging on the shores of Kuta Beach with of course, bottles of beer. There was a feeling of wanting for more but time says otherwise.
It was fortunate that this time around, our home in Bali is a 5-minute walk to Kuta Beach and accessible to the modern Balinese lifestyle – of shops, bars and restaurants. The Ramayana Resort and Spa was and will always be a home for me.
