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
What can I say, this place is spectacular. The location is amazing, beachside and surrounded by the best bars, cafes and restaurants in Canggu.
The rooms are INCREDIBLE! See pictures attached, but they really don’t do it justice. We had a 2 bed/2 bath suite and it was absolutely luxurious, but maintains the Bali charm you come here for.
The grounds are beautifully manicured, the pool is beautiful (and kid friendly) and the staff are amazing (they will all know your name from the moment you arrive!)
It has the acclaimed Ji Restaurant above it if you want a night out with amazing cocktails, the best Japanese food in Bali and probably the best view of the Canggu sunsets. I’d also recommend the Thursday night Cultural night- amazing performances and food.
This place suits romantic getaways and couples. With a touch of luxury everywhere you look.
I honestly can’t recommend this place highly enough. Can’t wait to come back!
Super cool hotel! Perfect room and we really liked all the eco friendly things like paper and glad instead of plastic. The breakfast was amazing and the afternoon snack tasteful. Not only sweet cakes 😁
My partner and I wanted to find a cooking school in Bali for a fun day out and, with the help of a local friend, we decided on the Hotel Tugu Bali cooking school and market tour. We arrived at the hotel at 7:00 AM and were offered a cold drink or coffee by the friendly staff. From here we met our host Sri and were whisked away to Denpasar for a market tour to purchase the ingredients for our feast. What followed was several really fun filled hours of cooking, getting to know Balinese culture from our host and EATING! Definitely a highlight of the trip for me and an activity I would recommend.
Hotel Tugi is located just a few steps from the beach. The hotel is very authentic with Javanese furnishings. We were upgraded to a villa with our own private swimming pool and outdoor bath. The staff were warm and welcoming and attentive to our needs. Don’t miss a massage or breakfast on the rooftop restaurant watching the morning surfers (my favorite was the green bowl and my husband’s was the traditional Indonesian). The Slow up the street has a fantastic restaurant and The Practice for an authentic yoga experience. Thank you, Hotel Tugu!
Truly fantastic lodging. Everyone is polite and helpful. We were so
spoiled by staying here that we truly did not want to leave. An experience my
g/f and I will never forget.
If you are in this part of Bali and they have accommodations,
do not hesitate.
I would give 10 stars if I could.
