I must say Grand Istana Rama at Kuta was overall acceptable to me. Its like a resort style place unlike staying in hotels like maybe Hard Rock Hotel. And the cost of staying for 1 night in Hard Rock Hotel is equivalent to my 3 night stays in Grand Istana Rama.
With a balcony and a bench outside, one can just sit at the balcony, drink my beer. And just relax. I am not sure why but Bintang beer is wickedly nice. It might be that I am always thirsty in Bali due to the super duper hot weather.
And if you see this baby on the door, dont be an idiot like me looking for a bottle opener high and low. This thing here cracks open the bottle caps for you. Its been a long long time since I have seen one of this.
