I just came back frm Ubud last mth.
Jimbaran is much quieter plc compare to Kuta.
Since you're heading to Ubud why not trying some hotels
in Sanur area. Try Sanur Paradize Plaza. It's near to the beach,
and there're few fast food around the corner, such as KFC, McD, and even right infront of Dunkin Donnuts.

I stayed there. Quite a convenience place to either access to north or south. It's in between. Its only take about 15mins drive to Kuta and about 30mins to reach Jimbaran. Btw, dun miss out the Jimbaran seafood ok?
Good trip!

Kuta is more convenient. I stayed at Sanur, not bad either.

Hello from Bali :)

I am staying in Jimbaran right now and it's a great little area. I would recommend it over Kuta, especially since it's cheap to catch a cab up to Kuta for shopping/dinner etc. There are a few really really nice hotels around this area too since you're after 4 star and higher, I'd recommend them or Sanur.

Personally, I'm staying in what can only be described as the Jimbaran Melrose Place... very nice little group of apartments, nice people, quiet etc. Dirt cheap too :)
