Accommodation on Poppies Lane II Kuta Bali

by Nick on August 2, 2003

by Nick | August 2nd, 2003  

Poppies Lane II in Kuta is jammed with guesthouses and hotels, and most of them are simple places that can’t be booked online in advance. During most times of the year you can arrive bags in hand and find a room that suits your budget. You may not get a room at the top place on your list, but you should be able to get a similar room for a similar price not far away.

During peak travel season and especially if you arrive late in the day you might have more trouble. It’s worth considering booking your first night at one of the places in Kuta that does confirm reservations online. If you like it there you can probably stay, but if you intend to find a cheaper and simpler place for the rest of your stay it gives you a big advantage. You can put your bags away in your room and then march up and down the streets until you find the place you like best for the rest of your stay.

For places that can be booked online see the main Bali hotels page and use the search tool at the top of that page.

For more information on places to stay one block to the south see our Accommodation on Poppies Lane I page.

Below is a complete list of the places in this dense tourist area starting with the cheapest:

Palu’s Place (0361) 751694
Poppies Lane II Gang Mangga

Opened (around July 1st 2003 ) and located down a small alley, you have to look for the brown ‘Palu’s Place’ sign on the right side of the street as you pass the Circle K after Jalan Benesari.

The owner Chrisna Deva describes his place as a bed & breakfast rather than a hotel because of the limited size and services. Although this place wasn’t entirely finished ( Chrisna stressed that he and his staff focus on customer satisfaction and service. I looked at the guest book and it was filled with glowing reports already from many nationalities.

The plates for the restaurant were still in their boxes but Chrisna did point out that he had gone to the trouble of selecting quality plates and cups.

There is a small swimming pool and the rooms are simple but feel comfortable because of the cleanliness and the color scheme. Chrisna has used dark blue tile for the floors and an orange / brown for the wall color, this gives a warmer effect than the stark white tile that most other places use.

Breakfast is included and items are bought from a quality French bakery including croissants and pastries. Guests can have eggs, coffee and tea also.

Rooms come with A/C , hot and cold water and bath tub. The rooms are located on 2 levels and face the pool.

Dear Nick,

I read your article about Poppies Inn. I was staying there for a week. Absolutely fantastic place with very friendly staff. Oase in the heart of Poppies Lane. I strongly recommend that place.

Cheers everyone,

Duncan. Hotel Prawita where Barrie stayed is located on Jl. Legian between Poppies I & II. It is a decent place and Barries room ran about 175,000rp per night I think. The antics in the ‘gene-pool’ were just a bonus.

Roland. Thanks for the comments. Chrisna the owner seems like a nice guy who is on property all the time and aims for quality. I’m starting to notice how good businesses have owners on site and ones at the other end of the spectrum have teenagers running the place.

Chrisna’s web site is almost ready he said so we’ll be able to learn more about Poppies Inn shortly.

Hi Sam

I spent the end of December 05 and most of Jan 06 in Bali and I went alone and had the time of my life!! I dont think there was a moment where I felt unsafe, you just have to be wise. I stayed at Troppo Zone which is a really fun place to stay. It is in Kuta and is walking distance to clubs, pubs, shopping, restaurants, cafes and the beach. All the staff there are really friendly and funny and its a good place to stay if you like to party.

They also do tours from Troppo Zone which take you to the top of the island to Lovina and you stay there overnight. Along the way they take you to the monkey forest, temples, git git waterfall, and rice fields. In the morning they take you to the hot springs which is awsome!! And you can also go snorkelling. On the way home they take you to the silver and the wood factory. The overnight stay is alot of fun too including dinner and drinking games (thats if your interested) quite funny!! Make sure you find a few other people to do the tour with you, the more the merrier!

I have also stayed at the bounty on poppies II which is also quite good!!

I am also going back to Bali in May and will be staying at Troppo Zone again! Cant wait! Maybe i will see you there! Hope this info helps you a little.

Cheers

Sara

Fadz thats great. There are many budget accomadations in Kuta beach along poppies 1 and poppies 2. You can spend anywhere from $2-10 a night depending on what you need..ie a/c , hot water, breakfast. Dont go where the taxi driver wants u to go since he will take u to a more expensive hotel. Tell him u want to go to kuta pantai poppies 1 and you can walk down the road and chose from many bungalow style places…try sari jaya, mimipies, arena bungalow. these are great stays and really cheap..good luck. if u are interested in making money and stayin in luxury 4-5 resorts like a KING for $298/week check this site out…you wont believe until u see it and if u are a serious traveller u can go around the world as much as you like for as little as $298/week as many time a year u want for life.
