A contemporary all-villa retreat in Bali’s tropical heartland, including breakfast, a 60-minute massage, village tour, plus daily afternoon tea and exotic fruits
Peace and tranquility is easy to find in Bali’s spiritual heartland, but there’s something rarified about this particular retreat. Combining pared-back minimalism with distinctive Balinese character, Senetan Villas & Spa Resort is the perfect modern escape.
No need to pack light for a stay at this all-villa property; even the smallest villa category weighs in at an impressive 230 square metres, with a private pool and sun deck. With boxish, fresh-white walls, well-selected furnishings and kimonos to saunter about the space in, they’re designed with a discerning modern traveller in mind.
Of course, no hotel on the island would be complete without a very good spa. Break up your sleep-and-swim routine with treatments using organic indigenous ingredients, or book or a one-to-one yoga session with an instructor. Add to that the rustic restaurant serving homegrown garden veggies, and it’s a recipe for a thoroughly revitalising getaway.
