Canggu, Bali

by: Jade Moyano

  • Why

    Working on my travel repertoire

  • When

    April 2017

  • Who

    Me on a mini Bali staycation and my buddy Zander, who fled the scene before I got to the Arak.

Highs + Lows

  • The music. Rare to find non stop, curated, high level tunes at hotels.

  • Rooms are very large and have their own lounge area. It’s perfect to hang out with friends, you def don’t want to leave.

  • Artwork is on point. You can spend hours wondering around looking at the works of Chris Searl, Dan Askill, Simon Lekias, to name a few.

  • Details… you can always discover something hidden like usb adaptors on every wall and unique zines on the bedside table.

  • Design takes you back to Palm Springs, except that you’re in Bali so it’s lush and smells like paradise.

  • Vibe…always upbeat without disrupting your inner peace. Good place to meet people.

    George Gorrow and his lovely wife Cisco. Look out for their own art collection on display throughout the property and The Slow’s designed skeleton rattan chair in each room.

  • Pool/Gym

    Private Pool on each first floor suite. Keyword, PRIVATE.

  • Restaurant

    Yes, amazing for breakfast or dinner, try the burrata and the octopus.

  • Bar

    On point, best rosé in town and don’t forget to ask for one of Syd’s alter ego concoctions.

  • Minibar

    Yes, I couldn’t even choose what to drink…their homemade Arak on 4 different flavors was spotted first…but then there was also cold pressed juices and artisanal beer to choose from. What’s a girl to do? Mix them all? Probably.

  • Wifi

    Yes, above average Bali WiFi.

  • Children

    No thanks

  • Price

    Quite high for Bali but 100% worth it, great experience.
