Kuta Beachwalk is a premier leisure destination in Kuta. Occupying 3.7 hectares of land and a 250-meter street side near the end of Jalan Pantai Kuta, this striking complex houses numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities boasting international brands and franchises. The Beachwalk is a first for Bali, sporting a unique design that is to some extent a major departure from the typical mall. A two-storey underground parking space for up to a thousand vehicles makes up for this position on one of Bali’s most packed streets. It aims to become a leading destination, and has received a steady flow of local and international visitors since its opening mid 2012.
Kuta Beachwalk is an easy stroll from the beach, and stepping into its foyer is a retreat from the coastal heat. Its main building architecture, large ponds and running water features imitate the curves of a paddy field. Even though a tad bit synthetic, its wide central atrium does provide natural airflow, ample shades and real gardens. What’s more, the team behind the project applied eco-friendly measures in its sustainable design, including minimum air-conditioning in open spaces and a special rainwater collection system.
Opening Hours: Daily from 10.00–22.00 Location: Jalan Pantai Kuta, Kuta
Without a doubt, what makes Uluwatu Temple spectacular is its cliff-top setting at the edge of a plateau 250 feet above the waves of the Indian Ocean. ‘Ulu’ means the ‘top’ or the ‘tip’ and ‘watu’ means a ‘stone’ or a ‘rock’ in Balinese. Several archaeological remains found here prove the temple to be of megalithic origin, dating back to around the 10th century. There are two entrances to Uluwatu Temple, from the south and the north. A small forest lies at the front and hundreds of monkeys dwell here. They are believed to guard the temple from bad influences. The serpentine pathway to the temple is fortified by concrete walls on the cliff side. It takes about an hour to get from one end to another as there are several fenced points along the way to stop. The views from the bottom of the water surging up against rocks and the ocean horizon are remarkable. The Balinese Hindus believe that the three divine powers of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva become one here. That belief results in making Uluwatu Temple a place of worship of Siva Rudra, the Balinese Hindu deity of all elements and aspects of life in the universe. Pura Uluwatu is also dedicated to protect Bali from evil sea spirits.
