Tugu Bali isn’t your typical Indonesian island retreat. Located in the sleepy town of Canggu, just steps from the beach, the hotel has ditched the identikit white-on-white design concept in favor of creating a true sense of place. The soaring thatched lobby is modeled after a traditional ceremonial hall and features a towering 16-foot statue of Garuda carved from a 120-year-old tree, and pillars adorned with carved wooden heads. It feels as if it were built for reliquary purposes rather than greeting guests.
Bed and Bath
All 22 rooms and suites are individually designed and housed in a series of low-slung buildings. Ground-floor Dedari Suites come with plunge pools and open-air bathrooms. Upstairs, Rejang Suites have balconies, massage beds, sunken tubs and a collection of paintings and objets d’art (not to mention killer ocean views). Both categories have four-poster canopy beds and lovely Old World charm.
Guests never have to dine in the same place twice, and each meal can be taken in a special setting. Enjoy an elaborate feast in the Bale Sutra, a 300-year-old temple, or tuck into a low-key meal in the property’s open-air waroeng, a traditional hut where dishes are cooked in an open kitchen. On the relaxation front, the spa’s six individually decorated treatment rooms feature antique chairs, massage beds made from old rice containers and traditional stoves to heat rocks and herbs and spices. Many of the products are made on-site, and there’s even an open-air healing center, where guests can learn how to whip up herbal remedies from ingredients grown in the resort’s own gardens. Limber up for an open-air yoga class or a Balinese dance class, or brush up your culinary skills with one of the cooking workshops.
How to Get There
Flew to Bali on a cheap fare $179 Brisbane to Denpasar. In Indonesia for 2 months wandering from Bali to the east looking round and scuba diving and see how fare I get when my visa expires.
I normally stay pretty basic in Asia but decided on two nights of luxury to start. Hotel Tugu Bali was fantastic. It is probably the best hotel I have stayed in. Loved the room, sunken bath. Staff stunning. Breakfast can be taken in about 8 different areas or you room. Tea in the afternoon, Very civilised. Short walk to beach. It really is a jem. Would go back at the drop of a hat or is that a cap these days.
In the midst of turbulent touristy Bali with people everywhere this is like an Eastern scantury. I cant rate the service, cleanliness or sleep quality because this buttons will not work. All were 5 out of 5.
Room serviced as soon as I went to breakfast and twice more during the day, though I did not see a single person in my room.
We had an incredible stay at Hotel Tugu Bali with our two children. Being based in Canggu makes for a much calmer and refined experience than somewhere like Seminyak or Kuta, with a more laid back vibe here that we really enjoyed.
The welcome drink was a great start to the stay, we had an Espresso Martini and Mojito in the lobby, before being taken to our beautiful room with private pool. One of the best things about the stay was the service from the staff - everyone seems to really go the extra mile to please their guests, and there is a sense of pride that the staff seem to take in their work.
Some of the other things we loved about this hotel were the complimentary afternoon tea set served either in your room, by the pool or in the restaurant, the incredible mantra massages in the spa (Kadek was amazing), and the brilliant food served by the team in the kitchen. We find hotel food to be a bit hit and miss sometimes, but this place excels on serving great food at a decent price.
The Tugu was one of the first hotels in Canggu, and makes a point of keeping the Balinese style at the forefront of its design. We absolutely loved it, and will definitely be back.
This is such a beautiful hotel with the most amazing attention to detail. Every day you get a new little note in your room along with a beautifully intricate piece of bamboo art. The views are unreal. Eating a delicious breakfast amongst the lilypads is the most amazing way to wake up. It is a stone throw away from restaurants and the beach!
This place is amazing, such a relaxed environment. So close to the beach. The rooms here are like treehouses, spacious and very comfortable. Highly recommend this place. Met the Manager Jenny and she is very welcoming and accommodating.
We had a great time while staying at Hotel Tugu.
The property has so much history and beauty.
Breakfast can be at any spot on the property so we chose the lotus pond which was quiet and a great start to our day.
Ji Restaurant is lovely for dinner and the interior is amazing. Plenty of sushi options or other yummy dishes.
It's also an ideal location for those visiting Canggu - walking distance to the beach as well as plenty of shops and cafés.
The staff were extremely friendly and our whole stay was really relaxing. I can only recommend it.
