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.

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.
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.

To be in proximity of the action in Canggu without the noise, Annupuri Villas are a happy medium. Halfway between central Canggu and must-see Tanah Lot Temple, the villas are built above a river surrounded by greenery. It’s like being in the middle of the jungle with all the luxuries you could need – not to mention it’s just up the road from Bali Mini Golf’s 18-hole course.
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.

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.

Don’t forget to check out nearby La Brisa, one of the most popular beach clubs in Canggu. It’s right down the road.

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.

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.
Canggu Dream Village Hotel
