Bambu Indah

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 5 August 2018

Bambu Indah is composed of 15 distinct teakwood villas from all over the country. The owners hand-picked each one, before being dismantled, transported, and restored in the Ubud property. Our favorites include the Kolam House for its seclusion, the Pagoda House for its playful, family-friendly features, and the Sumba House for its cultural appeal; but wherever you choose to bunk is promised to satisfy! The resort strips back on amenities to be more eco-friendly, but don’t fret—they still have wifi! Keep busy, instead, by joining curated experiences like village hikes, Balinese ceremonies, and yoga sessions.

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 5 August 2018

Share in the unique opportunity of wildlife co-habitation at Mara River Safari Lodge! Situated in the heart of Bali Safari and Marine Park, the resort is surrounded by animals frolicking through a lush landscape. Watch zebras, rhinos, and elephants grazing outside your African-inspired room. You’re even allowed to feed them carrots from your balcony! Have dinner at the in-house Tsavo Lion Restaurant, where you get to observe the kings of the jungle through glass windows. Book the Night Safari to come face-to-face with different creatures—don’t worry, you’ll be safe inside a caged tram!

Viceroy Bali

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 5 August 2018

Viceroy Bali boasts all the flash of a five-star accommodation: airport limousine pick-ups, a helicopter pad, a top-notch restaurant, a first-class spa, and stand-alone villas with private pools. Yet, its serene setting by Petanu Valley (and the fact that it’s family-operated) gives it a rustic charm. Take a dip in their famous infinity pool (which has a swim-up bar) for gorgeous views of the ravine. It also makes for a great photo spot!

The tallest bamboo edifice in Bali, Sharma Springs is a sustainable hotel that’s both an impressive feat of construction and a work of art.

The abode comes with a riverside yoga pavilion, an outdoor spa, a pool with a barbecue area, and a guest house. Architects, designers, and eco-enthusiasts from around the world flock to the building to revel at the fantastic craftsmanship, as well as to learn about bamboo architecture.

Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 5 August 2018

Once you step onto the teak bridge entrance of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, you’ll know you’re in for an exquisite experience! Opt for one of the luxurious villas, each of which features its own outdoor shower and plunge pool. Let’s be honest, though, the resort’s abundance of activities will probably keep you out of your room! Complimentary pastimes include trekking through the paddies, cycle tours, and yoga classes. When you’ve exhausted the day, unwind at Sacred River Spa with a massage using local, organic products created exclusively for the resort.

Sandat Glamping Tents

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 5 August 2018

A recent trend in accommodation, glamping (a portmanteau of “glamorous” and “camping”) combines the great outdoors with the amenities of a hotel. Sandat Glamping Tents takes it up a notch with locally crafted tents. All come with plush beds, regency chairs, and chandeliers, as well as their own private deck and plunge pool. Tucked behind thick gardens, the area allows you to rejuvenate in seclusion! By day, bask in the sunlight on your sun lounger; and at night, fall asleep to the calming songs of nature.
