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
I have been so incredibly blown away by this resort the numerous times I have been here now. The staff are just absolutely fantastic and could not go more out of their way to help you. The resort itself is just magical and a real haven in amidst the centre of Canggu (with easy access to the popular restaurants, beaches and bars should you want to head into the town. The villas are simply exceptional, with everything so thought out, so clean and a mixture of contemporary with Balinese luxury, even better actually than what is shown on the website. Absolutely would not hesitate to come back here, there are so many activities from wellness packages inclusive of yoga and spa treatments, or Balinese cooking classes, the resort staff will cater your stay to your every need!
To say this was the best resort we have ever visited would be an understatement. My wife and I were here for 5 nights in a private pool villa which was amazing. The staff make you feel at home. LOVE IT!
Bagus Jati is truly a remarkable place. Beautiful facilities, excellent food fabulous spa treatments and lovely staff. I am so grateful for my time there, and would definitely love to journey back there in the near future.
What an amazing location and surroundings. Feels like you are in the jungle but are only a 30 mins drive from Seminyak (with traffic). There is a good gym on site. Food is very good. All the staff are fantastic. They did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing & comfortable as possible. My only criticism is that some of the villas are showing their age. They did advise me that refurbishment is happening & they are very efficient - they replaced the entire roof on the reception one night and we didn't hear a thing. Wouldn't have know it was happening had I not gone there to ask something. Overall a great place. Would happily go back again.
We spent 7 nights in a Plataran Canggu pool villa as part of an extended ''Second Honeymoon'' holiday in Bali , and were not disappointed in the slightest . Although the location of this resort is not ideal for seeing the surrounding area , the delightful surroundings of each villa more than compensate. One feels as if one is hidden away in one's own private jungle clearing , from which one is reluctant to leave . The resort does provide a free scheduled (thrice daily) shuttle to Seminyak and Kuta , allowing the opportunity of dining out if desired . However we found the charming Teras restaurant offered nearly all we wanted in terms of tasty reasonably priced dishes for dinner , and we enjoyed the 5 evening meals we took there . The Teras also provides the good cooked breakfasts included in the accommodation price . The villa accommodation consists of a single generously sized room with a most comfortable large double bed , plus seating , and with a large semi-outdoor en suite bathroom, with twin wash basins and separate shower and stand alone bath .There is a shady verandah overlooking the little pool , and this provides a dining table and two dining chairs . The entire area , inside and out , is scrupulously cleaned daily. We were particularly impressed by the qualities of all the staff we encountered . From Reception to Resort Manager , from the waitresses of the Teras to the gardeners working on the lovely grounds , all without exception demonstrated a friendliness and desire to help that we found quite irresistible . The Plataran is truly to be very highly recommended as a tranquil haven away from the turmoil of the outside world .
