Swiss-Belexpress Kuta, a new contemporary budget hotel by Swiss-Belhotel International, has officially opened and is ready to welcome guests to Kuta Beach.
Situated just minutes away from Bali’s most famous beach and only five kilometres from Ngurah Rai International Airport, the 110-room hotel has been designed with the millennial and budget-conscious traveller in mind, whether flying solo or travelling with a group of friends.
As Swiss-Belhotel International’s first property under the Swiss-Belexpress brand, the two-star budget hotel offers visitors a comfortable yet affordable escape in the heart of Kuta’s entertainment district. Guests can choose from three categories of rooms including an Express Room, Express Super and Express Triple to accommodate groups of students, friends or small families. Connecting rooms keep the party going while some specially designed rooms have been built easily accessible for those with physical limitations. Today’s tech-savvy travellers can also appreciate the property’s central location and fresh design, as well as smart TVs and free Wi-Fi access allowing them to be fully connected throughout their island holiday.
“This opening marks a much needed accommodation offering in Kuta and also an innovative step forward for Swiss Belhotel International as we unveil the new Swiss-Belexpress brand,” said Swiss-Belhotel International’s Chairman and President Gavin M. Faull. “Today’s travellers are looking for more streamlined experiences with practical amenities and facilities, and value for money. The Swiss-Belexpress Kuta offers all these benefits and more in the centre of one of Southeast Asia’s most popular holiday destinations.”
Officially opened 28 October, 2016, the hotel held an open house for stakeholders, travel agents, event organisers and press during which guests received exclusive tours of the property while enjoying acoustic musical performances and a delicious showcase of Balinese and international food stalls at the hotel’s onsite Express Cafe.
