Set in tropical gardens the Plataran Canggu is a serene retreat a 15-minute drive from both Echo Beach and Seminyak. The 19 villas are authentic through and through, with traditional alang-alang (Balinese thatch) roofs, carved doorways, antique-style furniture and four-poster beds. Starting at 646 square feet, they all come with air conditioning and feature a private garden and a spacious bathroom with a tub (some are outdoors). Some villas have private pools, but there are communal pools dotted around the gardens to take a dip in. The Patio Restaurant serves international and traditional Indonesian street food with an upscale twist, including suckling pig and lobster bakso. Try your hand at one of the many activities on offer, such as a cooking class or rice planting, or kick back at the Padma spa with a classic Balinese massage.
In the Area
There is every chance that once you reach the Plataran Canggu Resort and Spa you will not want to leave, but if you do decide to explore, the resort is a short car ride from some top surfing beaches, cafés and restaurants. Seminyak, with its buzzing bars, enticing restaurant scene, quirky shops and vibrant markets, is a 15-minute taxi ride from the resort. Head to the beachside Ku De Ta for sundowners with a cool soundtrack. Echo Beach is around 15 minutes up the coast where seasoned surfers take on the waves by day, and a laid-back vibe takes over at night.
How to Get There
This was the our first time to Bali with my friends and we have made the right choice on staying Plataran Canggu. The hospitality was awesome from the moment we step into the hotel. Everyone in the team were so happy and welcoming. Great location and wonderful facilities. We will highly recommend this to our friends.
Stay only for a few nights here, but I feel like I found a new home. My cottage was comfortable with the terrace facing the beautiful garden. Food was good and I love their pool also the green landscape behind. Highly recommended and I'll be back!

Just arrived in Bali and stayed with my family at the Canggu Plataran hotel recently rénovated : beautiful private villas with individual pools in a beautifully maintained park, we had a wonderful Time there thanks to Vanda and her team. Beautiful cuisine in the restaurant overlooking the splendid pool. Relax and remember you are on holidays and that you have all the Time in the world to enjoy your stay!
We looooved our stay here, the best one in Bali so far. I frequently traveled to Bali for holidays & always try new hotel/resort each time. I've tried several five stars resorts, but Plataran is simply the best. The value for money, the ambience & the hospitality is beyooond my expectation of a five-star resort hotel. The room is big & spacious, the food is really good and the staff. The staffs are soooo nice, friendly & helpful. We were greeted by Rian & he's so helpful to arrange our room & activities. On our breakfast, one of the staff, Vanda asked us about our stay & we complained about the leaking shower. Suddenly, we're moved to another bigger room next to the river.
Another best thing staying at Plataran is the activities. We can wear traditional Balinese clothing (for free) & can take photos freely inside the resort. To wear this, Desi helped us to wear our clothes & took us around the resort to take photos. Also, at night we took the under the stars buffet package, the steaks are to die for & the ambience are so romantic (literally under a lot of stars) with beanbags & classic movies. On dinner, we have a chat with Pak Daryanto, the site manager and we talked about how difficult it is to find imported fruits in regular supermarkets in Bali. The next day, on our breakfast, we were given some imported pears & oranges from Pak Daryanto. I mean, the simplest thing matters right?
We also given some framed photographs of us inside the resort when we check out. It's very rare to found some hospitality like that, even though in a five star resort. Plataran is definitely the highlight of our trip & I can't wait to go back to Plataran Canggu and wil, for sure, try another Plataran! Thank you Plataran Canggu team, we had the best time :)
