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
Tugu Bali is a beautiful tranquil oasis located right on Canggu beach. Tranquil open spaces in traditional style are divine, the suites are spacious and well appointed. My upstairs suite had ocean views and a shuttered terrace with luxurious bath. Breakfast can be taken on the roof terrace with sweeping ocean views, fully a la carte included in price. The same terrace is a also the best place for sunset drinks and dinner all of which were well priced and delicious. All the staff are delightful and I found some wonderful gifts in the gallery shop.
Having traveled internationally quite a bit, I am always in love with properties that don’t feel mass produced and truly cater to providing their guests a unique and personal experience. Tugu did just that.
The rooms are stunning and well appointed. The dedari suite with an indoor/outdoor shower & bath combo could have been enough of a thrill for me, but the private pool just sealed the deal.
Take breakfast every morning from the deck overlooking the beach and surf. Also, why not a pre-dinner cocktail for sunset? Sign me up again for both! The food and drinks are top notch as well.
Service with a smile and just a great all around property.
Can be a bit noisy at night with all the hustle around Canggu, but they try to provide a tranquil experience regardless.
Will 100% be back!
I stayed 4 nights at Hotel Tugu and absolutely loved this hotel. I booked the Rejang Suite with ocean view. My room was very large and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was so welcoming and attentive. They arranged transportation for me to go to Finns Beach club and a day tour to the Tanah Lot Temple along with other sights. It is in an ideal location - just a short walk to the beach and across the street from the popular Old Mans bar. I enjoyed breakfast every morning on the rooftop which has beautiful ocean views. Such a great way to start the day!
Thank you Hotel Tugu- you made my stay very special.
We stay for 3 days and 2 nights, at Dedari suite with private pool..we really love and enjoy our stay..The food is delicioso...
In this hotel, they are no time limit on having breakfast, to those who prefer to wake up at noon after Busy busy hangout night, will not loosing a chance to have breakfast, even if you wwake ap at 1300..or even 1400..

We were going to stay four nights at Hotel Tugu in Canggu but after arriving, added another three nights. We (my husband and two teenage boys) love everything about the hotel! The staff are superb and can not do enough for you. The rooms (downstairs room with private plunge pool and courtyard), bed, amenities, etc...are A+. From the moment we arrived we felt immersed in the culture of Bali. The restaurants are also outstanding! This may well be one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. A++++
