Just imagine a falcate bay, greenish-blue in the shallows and azure further out; waves touching the clean white-sand beach every now and then; a jagged range of coastal hills; and a marvellous coastline that never seems to end, does it look like a place of your dreams? Well, this is how Kuta Beach attracts its visitors.
Once a pastoral and laid-back fishing village, Kuta has witnessed a melodramatic transformation over the past few years. Kuta Beach still is one of Bali’s most popular and fashionable beach resort destinations. It is an engaging land of a young and happening crowd, lovely cafes, idealistic restaurants, enthralling coastline, adventurous sports and mind-blowing sunsets.
Kuta also offers an array of activities for either couple, a group of friends or families. Go embrace the beauty of the astounding waves and feast your eyes on a glorious sunset. The soothing sound of waves and cool breeze create a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere that will melt all your stress away. Go on a romantic stroll where you can capture some beautiful silhouettes during twilight.
No matter what adventure and leisure activities you opt for on your holiday, you need to know which hotel you are going to end up staying at. The ANVAYA Beach Resort Bali can be a place to be highly considered. Offering luxury in a laid-back cosy style with true Balinese warmth for your exotic tropical vacation, this property has a clear aim to bring extravagance and tranquillity back to Kuta.
This five-star resort boasts its own private sandy beach and is equipped with a wide range of modern-day, soothing and luxurious features and amenities. The sophisticated and charismatic ambience of The ANVAYA pampers the eyes with architecture inspired by Bali’s rich cultural history, from the ancient times of the Bali Aga to Hindu Bali and Modern Bali. Straight from the entrance, you can notice right off that all the designs are ‘Bali Aga’ based. The main symbol of this design can be found in the entrance of the resort, where a spectacular group of pillars are arranged and light up gorgeously during the night. If you observe closely enough, you will soon realise that the entire resort is an impeccable work of craft that showcases the history of Bali through inspiring architecture. The middle part of the resort, from the pool onwards, depicts the ‘Bali Hindu’ design theme. This kind of design is what people normally associate Bali with, since Hinduism is Bali’s main religion and plays an intricate role in its culture. And the last part of the resort, starting from Sands Restaurant until their private beach area, is all designed in contemporary Balinese style.

While staying at The ANVAYA Beach Resort Bali, you cannot miss going to the Sakanti Spa for a day of relaxation and unwinding.

A perfect retreat for the honeymooners, this spa offers over 30 rituals ranging from massage, body scrubs, facials, manicures and pedicures.
Hot Sands Detox Massage is the signature treatment at Sakanti spa. The fine beach sand used in the bath is cured with herbs and aromatic salts. Sand baths are part of a prehistoric healing tradition that helps sooth body pain. Sand warms the body uniformly, helping to relieve musculoskeletal and arthritic pain. Like a sauna or steam room, the heat also causes you to sweat, expel toxins thus cleansing your body from the roots. Warm sand pouches dissolve any muscle tension, allowing the body to truly let go and achieve a sense of equilibrium. When the heated sand is massaged on the body, it opens the pores and relaxes the muscles, permitting the carefully selected herbs to infuse in the body and mind, leading to immense relaxation. The massage is done on specific pressure points to help stimulate blood circulation which leads to healthy skin. This treatment helps to dismiss pain and inflammation, develop healthy blood circulation and flexibility. Some of the herbs used are ashwagandha to relax tensed muscles and reduce stress, mustard and neem to impart the skin and body a healthy glow, turmeric and ginger to revitalise and purify the body, and lastly, rosemary and rice to improve blood circulation and ease tension in the muscles. A truly refreshing 75-minute sand detox will leave you feeling energised and glowing.
Local Culinary Treats
The ANVAYA Beach Resort Bali boasts of authentic Balinese dining experienced that truly represent Bali as the modern and fashionable food scene, seashore dining and the tradition of sharing food with family. Kunyit Restaurant lends the ideal vibe to the traditional delicacies of Bali and Indonesia, providing a sensual dining experience that specialises in local cuisine. Meaning turmeric, Kunyit is one of the basic elements incorporated into many of the Balinese dishes served. The Bali Aga influence is experienced not only in the old-fashioned family style of dining, where a selection of dishes is served and shared, but also in traces of the architecture and ornamentation of this relaxed, present-day venue.
Balinese and Indonesian classics like Nasi Campur Bali and Satays are prepared with utmost love and served.
