“Designed by Indonesian Andra Martin, Katamama has 58 suites in a confection of Javanese bricks, Balinese stone and other indigenous materials.”
“The 85-unit Alila offers gracious service in a setting where the blue of the ocean contrasts with the green of the surrounding (hotel-tended) rice fields.”
“One of Ubud’s most attractive properties, the 46 rooms here come in a variety of sizes but all have a relaxed naturalistic style that goes well with the gorgeous views.”
“Since it relaunched in 2009 as AYANA Resort and Spa Bali, this hotel has bagged a whole slew of significant awards for its bar, its accommodations and the spa. The rooms and hotel design are very well done — well appointed without the over the top luxury flourishes.”
“Away from the coast, amid dense bamboo jungle and perched looking over the sacred Ayung River is this wonderful, peaceful retreat. All 42 thatched maxi-huts/villas come with a plunge pool that releases itself endlessly into the jungle’s steamy abyss.”
“Sitting front and center on Seminyak beach, all 59 suites come with ocean views. Penthouse suites come with attached outdoor lounge space and a terrazzo bath, so you can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves.”
