Style-savvy guests have a lot to look forward to at this low-key but high impact resort in the tiny village of Canggu on Bali’s west coast. Not only will you be overlooking the famous rice fields, but you’ll be just over a mile from Echo Beach – the island’s most cherished surf spot that’s celebrated for its black sands, advanced reef breaks, sunset dining spots, and chilled-out vibe.
A cool choice for those who like their stays laid-back but luxurious, each of the five luxury-led villas are finished to a high spec. All come with Balinese-style décor and a better-than-average level of creature comforts, but it’s the extras that really impress; from outdoor verandahs for all-day lounging to gorgeous bathrooms with bathrobes, slippers and complimentary toiletries.
There’s no shortage of things to do here, either. Days can be spent relaxing by the palm-lined pool, enjoying massages at the little spa, kicking back with a glass of Balinese rice wine at the café-cum-bar, and sampling all sorts of Western and Asian gourmet delights. The staff are also super-helpful should you wish to organise car hire or bicycle rental for the duration of your stay.
How to Get There
Had a perfect 5 day stay at Planta Luxury Boutique Resort. Quiet and relaxing resort, but close enough to busy Canguu with lots of restaurants, shops, cafes & bars. Beautiful large room, with outside shower, freestanding bathtub looking outside, very large bed with big open windows looking to the pool and greenery. Every single person working at Planta could not be more helpful and friendly, they were all amazing. We would regularly use the taxi service available - dropping us to restaurants in the evening / taking us to our next hotel - all at a very very reasonable price.
Also recommended some great restaurants - 2 of our favourites being Billy Ho & Masons. Delicious food and great atmosphere.
We had the most amazing time, and was very sad to be leaving this resort. We wished we booked more time here. We will definitely return. Thank you all so much.
From the airport in denpasar, via a warm welcome and fresh juice on arrival at Planta Lyxury Boutique Resort, to our well organised early morning departure, we were spoiled by the caring and attentistaff. The setting is tranquil among uigh palms and small rice paddies, enough space for privacy but the opportunity to take breakfast with other guests. The villas are spacious - there are only 5 - and kept clean. Shaded outside day beds are there for reading after a swim in a large deep clean pool. Flawless.
We stayed at Planta Luxury Boutique Resort a couple of weeks ago for the first part of our honeymoon for 5 nights. They offer an airport collection/drop off as part of when you book with them so we were picked up late after a long flight. The driver was there waiting promptly and after about 30 minutes we arrived at the hotel. Despite the time being 12:30am we were still greeted with a welcome drink, a cool towel and then shown around our beautiful villa.
The hotel is beautiful, it is about a 30 minute walk away from the beach and main shops/cafes/restaurant/bars but theres still so much around it if you are like us and like to walk around, see the local area an old try local food. For us, it was far enough out of the main area to be quiet for our honeymoon.
The hotel is down a bit of a dirt track, so would advise if you're coming home late at night you'll need a torch or the light on your phone! Otherwise it's easy to find and get to. The only thing we felt uncomfortable with was on the track down to the hotel there is a couple of small houses which have pet dogs, one of the dogs used to bark so aggressively when we'd pass in the evening and one night even seemed at though it went for my leg as we walked past. Me and my husband both love dogs, but this really scared us. We spoke to the hotel which reassured us Balinese people use dogs as security and it's only barking at us to scare us off and wouldn't ever do anything. However, we still didn't feel comfortable walking past in the evening and if we had been out for dinner and returning to the hotel used to dread walking past and getting chased/barked at. Might be worth seeing if the dog can be put on a lead or away in the evening if it is becoming aggressive to hotel guests.
Breakfast is offered at the hotel and you are given a choice of two breakfasts which change daily. And afternoon tea if offered in the afternoon with a local sweet treat. We didn't have any evening meals at the hotel as we opted to go out to local restaurants/warungs.
We stayed in room 2 which was so beautiful and private. We felt like we were sleeping in a treehouse! We had a view over the rice field next door and the infinity pool.
Most days we spent chilling by the pool as it was so calm and peaceful. This really is the most perfect hotel to completely relax in. Despite being near a busy road when your by the pool or in one of the villas you don't hear a thing!
The staff and so friendly and attentive, always asking if theres anything they can do to help or assist in making your stay with them perfect.
The only thing I would recommend is that the staff who show guests around their villa is to let them know that in villa 2 they have a separate bathroom downstairs! We didn't know the whole time we were staying at Planta and have only just realised nearly 3 weeks later after seeing another guests video on Instagram that at the bottom of our stairs which leads to the pool there was a separate bathroom with sharing bathtub and outdoor shower. We had no idea at all and never even opened the door as believed it to be staff.
Please let your guests know as this is such a shame we didn't know it was there!
Otherwise, would highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely return when we come to Bali again!
