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
Planta is a lovely very small hotel/guesthouse. The rooms are very nice with occasional eccentricities. As there was minor building work (now completed I think) we moved rooms both were lovely though the second was the pick. A beautiful pool is nestled amongst trees and forest.
The staff are lovely and excellent at their roles though we need to mention Sugi who went above and beyond. A lovely little oasis which though not in the centre was only a short taxi ride away.
The one draw back and this was really about Canguu itself was the traffic arriving and leaving which was insane and turned and expected 1 hour journey into nearly two.
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.
