Hotel Tugu Bali

Chosen as the most romantic place in the island and as a sampling of paradise on earth, Hotel Tugu Bali is a place where, upon entering, one is transported to the most romantic times of Bali.

Nestled on the pristine, wave-sung sunset beach of Canggu, surrounded by the whispering rice fields and the adjacent Batu Bolong Temple, Hotel Tugu Bali was built upon a passion for the romantic beauty of the art, history and culture of Bali specifically and Indonesia in general. A vast collection of priceless Indonesian antiques and artworks adorned the hotel, blending pure tropical luxury with an out-of-the-ordinary ambience.

The magical Bale Agung lobby, with views to the Indian Ocean, houses an exclusive collection of historic Balinese artworks and cultural artifacts, among which are the impressive 4.9metres tall wooden giant Garuda carved from a whole 120 years old tree and Boma heads (mythological giant guardians) on top of soaring columns inspired by an ancient ceremonial house in central Bali. Surrounding the Bale Agung is a world of lush tropical gardens and wild lotus ponds, where each of the resort’s 21 villas and suites hides itself from one another.

The Puri Le Mayeur Villa, occupying an area of 200 square metres, ‘floats’ above its own 700 square metres natural lotus pond. Chosen as the ‘sexiest’ suite in the island, this villa is inspired by a love story between Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merprès, a famous Belgian painter who moved to the island in 1932, and Ni Polok, a renowned Legong dancer. The Puri Le Mayeur, furnished with beautiful original carved furniture of the artist, has a private plunge pool, an open-air lotus pond dining pavilion, a beautiful outdoor bath, and a verandah to witness the sun setting behind the breaking waves.

Entering the Walter Spies Pavilion, the other signature suite of this hotel, one finds himself transported to the romantic art deco era of Java in the early 20th century. This suite is dedicated to the German poet and artist Walter Spies, who made Java and Bali his home in the 1920s. The Walter Spies incorporates several original Dutch colonial architectural elements, including entrance gate, stained-glass windows, and a most beautiful headboard made of the artist’s original garden gate. The Walter Spies Pavilion has a beautiful private plunge pool, a private outdoor dining pavilion, a garden and the most unique outdoor sunken bath.

The Dedari and Rejang Suites are far from being standard suites, each of which has been decorated with different artworks and color schemes. However, all have exotic luxuries such as oversized beds scattered with fresh petals at nights, silvered local artisan’s sunken baths, private plunge pools and private in-room spa areas. All the Rejang Suites have a view to the sunset over the Indian Ocean.

The Waroeng Djamoe Spa, listed in the past two years as one of world’s best as well as one of Asia’s best, practices treatments that range from pure indulgence to peace of the soul. From treatment that is based on the traditional Balinese dances; spiritual therapy combining the chanting of mantras and the application of heated exotic herbal oils; yoga, pilates, and water pilates practice that bring the body and mind in harmony with the surrounding nature; to heavenly hot stone massages using spice-soaked volcanic stones, the Tugu spa experience is a compulsory beginning to any stay in Bali.
