Love is…escaping the winter and traveling to an island.
This month we are sharing a few of our favourite places to eat, drink, shop and stay on the island of the gods- Bali
Nestled amongst the palm trees on Seminyak’s Jalan Kayujati, this colourful tropical oasis is a must. Feed your senses with the vibrant decor and scrumptious food. Be sure to order a frozen margarita and dance the night away.
Kim Soo Home and cafe
Shop til you drop at Kim Soo Home (the most inspiring space drenched full of island luxe interiors) then sit down and relax under an umbrella at Kim Soo Cafe. With great coffee, a selection of freshly baked cakes on top of a yummy menu it’s the perfect post shopping pit stop to refuel and recharge.
LA meets Bali with the island’s newest pool club, Mrs Sippy in Seminyak. It’s open daily 8am-midnight and from 12pm it’s adults only. Inviting oversized daybeds surround the large turquoise pool amongst lush greenery. After a cocktail or two you may even give the 5m diving board a go!
If Seminyak is a little too busy for you then head 20 mins north and you’ll find yourself in the more relaxed Canggu, a chilled beachside community full of creative ex-pats and hip boutiques and cafes. The Lawn has a pool which runs parallel to the famous surf break Batu Balong… so you can either sip your bintang in the thatched roof ‘swim up’ bar or nab a daybed or spot on the lawn and watch the afternoon turn to night with those famous bali sunsets. This place is not to be missed.
Eat, drink and sleep at The Slow. Just up the road from The Lawn, this Canggu gem offers luxury boutique accommodation and celebrates art, local culture and interactive retail.
The restaurant at The Slow connects to room 13, which is the gallery space featuring a rotating art collection and a barista station.
The Colony Hotel
This adults only hotel, located in the heart of Seminyak and right next door to Kim Soo Home and Cafe is the perfect boutique stay that is walking distance to all that’s on offer yet provides sophisticated seclusion in complete style.
Whether you’re going glam with the fam or wanting a romantic retreat, Fella Villas (located in Canggu), inspired by travel, art and architecture is a villa with serious style. Created by the founders of iconic Australian swimwear brand FELLA, this lush abode is the perfect place for those wanting to live like a local.
The Jungalow Bali
Another Canggu gem, the Jungalow is a luxurious and spacious two bedroom boutique villa that focuses on simple modern design and interiors and offers a lush pool next to a live green wall, this tropical paradise is one for those who love the outdoors.
