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
Our local friends recommended this Hotel and we were not disappointed. Wish we had stayed here instead of the awful Aston Hotel next door. The ambience, decor and traditional Indonesian food served was delicious. A must if you enjoy great food and fantastic service.
We heard about some free dancing performance that happened at the Hotel Tugu, and so decided to book in for dinner and a show (we didn't stay at the hotel). The staff were really lovely and attentive, the performance was beautiful and the food was delicious even though there wasn't enough of it considering the price.
Located next to Badung beach we wish we had stayed in this area as there seemed to be a really lively culture happening, many people around.
Hotel Tugu has a nice atmosphere and was a very comfortable place to visit. I would consider staying here next time we're in Canggu.
From the friendly greeting and complimentary water and fruit in the car that picked us up from the airport to the personal goodbye three days later, everything at Tugu was wonderful. The buildings are gorgeous and filled with Indonesian artefacts.
Huge room with sunken bath, separate shower room, comfortable desk space with a lovely view over the lily pond. Lots of beautiful, individual touches, including a new flower arrangement on the bed every day. All of the staff were friendly and so helpful.
It felt so different to a big international chain 5 star hotel - in a really good way. I would highly recommend a stay here.
Cocktails and Japanese food on the rooftop at Ji were delicious and offered a great view of the Canggu surf.
Such a beautiful and historic hotel. The staff here truly loves their job and the property is immaculate. They have many unique experiences, including cultural dances. It was so well done!
Their rooftop bar is absolutely incredible. You can have anything off the breakfast menu anywhere on the property you want included!
I can’t say enough how perfect this hotel is. You feel like your staying in a boutique hotel but it’s definitely a resort. They have taken time to make sure you have a private and intimate setting most anywhere you are. I would absolutely return
Upon arrival, we were greeted with warm smiles and welcoming drinks, but the most special thing was getting blessed with a welcoming ritual. I felt fully immersed in their culture. Our room was so beautiful, and every time we left, we came back to beautiful messages, goodnight poems/quotes. The hospitality at Tugu was 12/10. I've never felt more refreshed, but how can you not when your bathroom is literally PARADISE! We had an outside bathroom, which had a fish tank, just incredible. THANK YOU TUGU for making my Bali experience even more beautiful
