Discovery Shopping Mall is one among the largest shopping malls in Bali and the second largest shopping hub in Kuta after the newer Kuta Beachwalk. It is located on one of Kuta’s main roads, the Jalan Kartika Plaza, and features a beachside location with an amphitheatre on the sands of Kuta Beach. It is a 10-minute drive from the airport and approximately 45min from Denpasar, Bali’s capital city.
The large three-storey mall houses numerous fashion and lifestyle outlets from famous national and international brands, as well as various food and beverage outlets from a multitude of cuisine choices and styles, from fine dining restaurants to franchise fast food outlets.
Discovery Shopping Mall’s roadside entrance is hard to miss and is along the Jalan Kartika Plaza. The Waterbom Bali waterslide and recreational park is just across the road from the mall and the notable hotel that shares the same name as the street and the mall is just next door after the nightlife and entertainment venue of MUSRO Bali, south of this magnificent shopping place and unofficial southern Kuta landmark.
Discovery Shopping Mall can be accessed through various entrances, the most apparent being up the flight of steps from where the mall’s spiralling and towering signature sculpture, in addition to a chrome name signpost and small water fountains dominate the foyer.

Also present here is the Guardian drugstore chain, as well as other various restaurants on the ground level.
The other entrances are from the beachfront area where stairs lead up to the rear area of the mall. The various restaurants and sunset-view-priority outlets dominate the scene. The rear access is both a convenient entrance for beach strollers and guests staying at the neighbouring hotels on the coastline, as well as the public during concerts and event highlights that take place on the amphitheatre which also serves as the centrepiece of the mall’s beachfront side.
