If you really want to stay at Kuta beach proper, it's about a 35 minute walk from the airport to the Pantai Kuta sign which is a little far if you have substantial luggage. But leaving the airport will allow you to get cheaper transportation nonetheless.The Kutaya hotel since I thought I could store my luggage there while I went to Komodo. That didn't quite work out (see Storing Your Luggage in Denpasar), but the hotel was wonderful and it was only a 25 minute walk along the beach boardwalk to the main area of Kuta and only a 10 minute walk to the airport on small empty roads. There was also a lot of great restaurants about a block away!
