Canggu, the epicentre of Bali’s surf scene in Indonesia, full of sunny black sand beaches and laptop-toting nomads, is a wonderful fusion of local and foreign lifestyles. As far as places to stay go, it’s ideal for enjoying the island’s dining and social scene while also serving as a convenient jumping-off point to bigger attractions. Here are the best hotels in Canggu – bookable on Culture Trip.

Looking to stay in Canggu? You can share the experience with a small group of culturally curious travellers on Culture Trip’s exclusive 12-day Bali adventure, led by our local insider.

1. Como Uma Canggu

Hotel, Luxury

If the beachfront pool, flanked by verdant tropical plants, wasn’t convincing enough, the chocolate-espresso martini will likely do the trick. Como Uma Canggu is right on Echo Beach, a volcanic black sand shoreline for surfing, sun tanning, and socializing with a coconut in hand. Ocean-view rooms and plenty of wellness facilities — including two yoga studios and a spa — make it a serious place for rejuvenation.

2. The Haven Suites Bali Berawa

In Berawa, a slightly quieter offshoot of central Canggu, the Haven Suites are a short two-minute walk from buzzy Berawa Beach. Equipped with both suites and villas, an al fresco-style restaurant and an infinity pool, you’re covered for comfort. Snag some mie goreng (fried noodles) without leaving the premises or indulge in a caramelised onion and mushroom pizza.

4. The Kemilau Hotel and Villa Canggu

With only 14 rooms drenched in tropical sophistication, the Kemilau Hotel and Villa Canggu makes for an intimate, undisturbed place to unwind. Snag a grandiose floating brunch of coffee, tea, fresh dragon fruit and watermelon (along with traditional breakfast favourites), either in your private pool or the Kemilau swimming pool. It’s the best way to start the day before a 15-minute walk into Berawa, the southern side of Canggu.

5. Rimbun Canggu Villa

In Indonesia, the word rimbun means lush – and Rimbun Canggu Villa certainly lives up to its namesake. Of the 38 environmentally friendly rooms, eight have direct pool access whereas the rest benefit from mirror-like views of foliage reflected in the water below. Between sunbathing and surfing, you can cosy up at the in-house library to pick up a new read. The on-site Kinuwa Restaurant dishes up healthy favourites, such as artful smoothie bowls decorated with coconut flakes and granola.

6. Eastin Ashta Resort Canggu

Reminiscent of a hotel you’d find in a big city, Eastin Ashta Resort Canggu has a thoughtfully designed modern lobby with 119 rooms across multiple floors. Between the library, poolside bar with craft cocktails, in-house restaurant and double-level fitness centre, no amenity is left out. With a fully stocked minibar in each room and piña coladas on the patio, no one shall go thirsty.

7. D’djabu Villas Canggu

Rice-field surroundings make D’djabu Villas Canggu feel chilled compared to the surrounding area, right off Padang Linjong, the main road that leads to Canggu’s famous Echo Beach. Each room has a view – whether that’s the rice fields, pool or garden area – and they’re all aesthetically pleasing. Don’t forget to check out nearby La Brisa, one of the most popular beach clubs in Canggu. It’s right down the road.

8. Aston Canggu Beach Resort

Expect to be entertained while staying at Aston Canggu Beach Resort. Just a quick walk away from Batu Bolong Beach, the resort is truly in the heart of Canggu. Activities within the grounds range from yoga classes and spa treatments to beers at the Score Sports Bar. With reasonable prices compared to other options in the area, it’s perfect for budget-minded travellers who still want luxury amenities.

9. Zin Canggu Resort and Villas

More than a hotel, Zin Canggu Resort and Villas is a hotspot among long-term international visitors and digital nomads who make use of the tropical-trendy workspace at Zin Cafe. It rests in a concealed corner between a river and Canggu Beach, a spot that is easily overlooked unless you know where to look. Teak and bamboo-built villas with private pools are the perfect places for R&R, along with the aptly named ZinSpa right on the banks of the river.

10. Canggu Dream Village Hotel

The 360-degree views from the rooftop bar at Canggu Dream Village Hotel are the perfect way to take in a Balinese sunset. The afternoon high tea beforehand certainly doesn’t hurt either. Simple yet comfortable, each room has a balcony with views of the aqua-blue pool below. Deluxe, standard, suite and family rooms are all reasonably priced, allowing you to save funds for the many trendy restaurants in Canggu.
