Country inn gone luxe with Balinese villas and a destination restaurant on the north shore
This intimate country inn’s award-winning formula is equal parts service, setting, and style: Six private villas — four of which have infinity pools — hide guests away in the jungle hills overlooking Bali’s north shore. Verdant grounds offer a pool, spa and tropical-garden patches while the plush, eclectic interiors and private verandas brim with Balinese antiques and handcrafted furniture. In the foodie destination of a restaurant, three-course daily-changing menus plumb the bounty of the on-site organic garden and nearby farm for modern riffs on Indonesian classics.
In the Area
Lovina may be famous for its dolphins — just try to dodge the touts and tchotchkes — but Bali’s scruffy, still-developing north shore offers plenty of the natural serenity that first drew backpackers to its black-sand beaches. The Damai can arrange guided temple tours and village trekking in nearby Kayu Putih’s terraced paddies. Or you can go it alone, following your nose to fragrant spice plantations and to Banjar Hot Springs, where carved stone dragon mouths spit soothing sulfurous water into two soaking pools. Golfers shouldn’t miss Bali Handara Kosaido, an iconic 18 holes inside an extinct volcanic caldera.
