Canggu is a hipster’s paradise. Once known as a sleepy surf spot, this up and coming destination is a hit amongst Bali’s young and laid-back party goers. The streets are lined with chic shops and designer cafe’s serving up green juices and smoothie bowls. After the sun sets, the music starts pumping as the tanned and the beautiful come out to play.

 

Blink and you’ll miss it, discreetly tucked back just steps from the action along Batu Bolong beach is the privately owned, boutique and luxury resort, Hotel Tugu Bali. Celebrated as one of the Top 100 most beautiful hotels in the world, the hotel doubles as a museum for one of the largest collections of Indonesian art and antiquities. Both rustic and romantic, the resort is built in the traditional Balinese style, inviting guests to step back in time and experience Balinese hospitality at its best.

 

Discreet walkways and secret gardens give way to the property’s secluded villas and suites. Our Dedari Suite was hidden behind stone walls and an antique wooden door ensuring complete privacy throughout our stay – ideal for couples in need of an exotic escape. The suite’s private plunge pool and semi-open air spa bathroom overlooking its own Koi pond added to the aesthetics of luxury and grandeur. If you’re looking for romance, then Tugu is the place to be. Rooms are spacious and inviting, where elegance and comfort leave you feeling like royalty.

Balinese hospitality is second to none and the team at Hotel Tugu Bali are most certainly some of the best on the island. Whatever your needs, staff are smooth, efficient and more than willing to accommodate. However, the true charm is in the design of the expansive property. Art, nature and beauty seamlessly blend behind every corner. Wake up to the sounds of waves crashing and experience the brilliance of a Bali sunset. Hotel Tugu Bali is not one to miss.
