The Kutabex shopping mall is a modern shopping centre overlooking Kuta beach. There are some places to eat including cafes and restaurants next to Kutabex. Inside the mall is a modern setting with some retail stores.
This is a relatively new shopping mall that is still under construction as of (July 2012) but it is rapidly progressing to completion. I only visited this mall a couple of times so far but I can see it's progressing fast and will be a popular shopping attraction in the near future.
I took this picture from the other side of the road (Jalan Pantai Kuta) on the pathway next to Kuta beach. The design of the building is quite modern with lots of glass out the front.
Black Canyon Coffee food and drinks is a quaint little cafe next to Kutabex when first entering the mall. This is a great place to dine or have a refreshment while overlooking the beautiful sunsets in Bali overlooking Kuta beach.
I took this picture below from out the front of Kutabex shopping mall. This Jalan Pantai Kuta which is the street that runs along where the mall is located. On the other side of the wall on the right of the picture is Kuta beach.
This is a very busy road both for pedestrians and traffic. There is also many other cafes, convenience stores, restaurants, hotels and more all the way down this street.
This photo was taken when I was standing up the stairs near the entry of the Kutabex mall. Behind the trees is a view of Kuta beach.
I made a short video tour of the mall here. This video was filmed in July 2012. As you can see in my video, some of the mall is still under construction as this is a relatively new establishment. However it has progressed very fast it will be sure to be a popular shopping attraction given the ideal beachfront location.
On either side of the entry point to the shopping mall are popular places to eat including the Black Canyon Coffee cafe on the left of the entry and KFC is on the right. From my understanding I believe they plan to make the first 2 levels of the mall for shopping, retail and entertainment. The remaining 3 levels of Kutabex are going to be for a 4 star hotel establishment.
For people who spend time on the beach, this is a great place to cross the road for a quick bite to eat or a cool refreshment. For tourists who are staying in many of the beachfront hotels along Jalan Pantai Kuta, this is a convenient place to stop by and do some Bali shopping.
The Kutabex shopping mall is definitely and new and upcoming establishment that will be very popular as it progresses to completion. At this stage there is a few retail stores open inside the mall as seen in my video above. However it's still new and businesses will be opening within the mall in the near future.
