There are numerous hotels of all types in Kuah including budget, mid range and luxury hotels. This is the capital town and the main hub of commercial activities in the island. If you plan to stay in close proximity to duty free shopping centers, variety of restaurants & eateries, bars & pubs, then Kuah is the place to stay. However for beaches you should head towards Pantai Cenang which is about 20 minutes drive from Kuah.
Kuah is also convenient for those coming or leaving by the ferry as the main ferry jetty is located here. Although some of the hotels (mainly the luxury ones though) offer views of the water, there is no beach in Kuah town (except one near the CHOGM park which is quite small and a private beach). So do not expect much water based activities if you plan to stay here. However, the popular beach areas along the western coasts like Pantai Cenang and Tengah are only 20 minutes away by taxi. And there is plenty of taxis available in Kuah.
