Como Uma Canngu Bali
Minimalist interiors courtesy of prominent Japanese and Italian designers, polished service and the chance to surf right outside the hotel make COMO Uma Canggu a sanctuary of a resort in Bali. Clutching the Indonesian island’s southern coast, this COMO property is well-placed for enjoying the surfing community of Canggu, but also takes luxury to the next level with its slick Beach House, wellness centre and sublime guestrooms, making this the coolest (and most chic) place to stay in the area.
COMO Uma Canggu knows all-too-well that many visitors to these shores will be keen to take to the waves while on holiday in Bali. So whether you’re a beginner or experienced surfer, the hotel has teamed up with local experts Tropicsurf to provide fantastic private lessons, and it takes place right on your doorstep, always helpful. If you’re not brushing up your boarding skills, you might be working out in the gym, or maybe exploring the surrounds by bike. You can ride to the crater of Mount Batur, or opt for a cultural outing to some of the local highlights of Bali’s southern coast when looking to get out and about.
It’s not all action and adventure at COMO Uma Canggu though. The spa, COMO Shambhala Retreat, promotes wellbeing with its daily yoga and Pilates classes, Asian therapies and wellness workshops, which all work in line with raw vegan dishes and vegetable juices in Glow bar to nourish your body. However, anyone looking to indulge while on holiday in Bali will find plenty of temptation, from heady cocktails to culinary masterpieces, all offered at COMO Beach Club. Marvel at the sun dipping below the horizon while sipping a freshly crafted drink and listening to the melodic tunes of DJ sets, choosing between the monochromatic restaurant or a poolside perch. There are then two swimming pools at COMO Uma Canggu, in fact: one right next to the Beach Club, and another freeform, lagoon-style pool that weaves between the hotel and guestrooms themselves, offering direct access into this lustrous bathing spot from the Lagoon Pool Residences.
All guestrooms at COMO Uma Canggu are understated spaces with a quality finish throughout, dressed in neutral palettes that enhance the light and airy feel. Each room comes with a yoga mat, Nespresso machine and king-size beds wrapped in Egyptian cotton; the bathrobes are wonderfully soft, too. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers and the hotel group’s signature COMO Shambhala toiletries, though some rooms also come with outdoor showers. If upgrading from the entry-level option, you have a choice between Residences with private pools or direct access to the communal lagoon pool, abodes with terraces and swinging day beds. Or – best of all – lavish penthouses complete with butler service, a rooftop pool, kitchenette, exquisite design and unbeatable views of the rolling waves.
Whichever room, suite or penthouse you opt for, a stay at COMO Uma Canggu will be one of wellness, surf and fine Balinese hospitality, all against a backdrop of tasteful Italian-Japanese design; what more could you need?
