AN EXOTIC LABYRINTH OF EXOTIC BEAUTY
This beautiful resort is quietly hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Bali, cocooned within luscious tropical foliage, alongside a delicate flowing river and some iconic rice paddies. It provides what can only be described as the most unique peace and tranquility leaving you feeling totally relaxed and at ease with the world around you.
What really stands out about Plataran Canggu is its labyrinth shaped layout which is a leftover legacy from the renowned architect – Made Wijaya, creating the ultimate seclusion for guests to explore and enjoy. The rooms themselves are beautiful traditional alang-alang roofed villas with inspiring Balinese architecture and a strong sense of culture which will leave you mesmerised.
If you find yourself in Canggu, Bali, then I would highly recommend booking a few nights at Plataran Canggu.

One Bedroom Private Pool Villa
During our stay at Plataran Canggu we opted to stay in the One Bedroom Private Pool Villa which really caught our eye from the word go. These Joglo-style villas were spacious, full of natural light, beautifully decorated with Indonesian art, stunning hand crafted woodwork and the tropical garden views really took our breath away.
Furnished with a king sized bed, fluffy pillows, soft linens and surrounded by topical foliage and our huge balcony which overlooked our own private pool, we really felt like a king and queen. The en-suite bathroom is utterly superb with a custom designed walk in bath/shower and marble vanity sinks plus large mirrors.
What you get
The room comes equipped with air-conditioning, broadband Wi-Fi, free toiletries, mini bar, plenty of storage space, LCD TV with cable channels, writing desk, personal digital safe, IDD phone, mosquito repellent, evening biscuits, coffee & tea making facilities, stereo system, complimentary water and soft towels.
They also spray your room with mosquito repellent and set up coils to keep the pesky things away.
Indulge in some exquisite dining
With either the Teras Canggu or Tiga Dari snack bar, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating. Teras Canggu proudly brings the authentic taste of Balinese culinary heritage to the plate. Enjoy the finest flavours to be found on the streets of Bali, reinterpreted with a modern twist for a world-class dining experience. Savour local dishes such as the signature Lobster Bakso and a fresh take on Bali’s famous Babi Guling. While, Tiga Dari’s secluded location in the centre of the resort is ideal for enjoying a meal together in private, or for hosting a private gathering.
Pamper yourself at Padma Spa
Padma means ‘sacred lotus’ in Sanskrit, and embodies the qualities of this iconic Indonesian blossom – elegance, purity and the promise of eternal spiritual riches. Follow the petals of the lotus and experience a variety of therapeutic and beauty treatments designed to balance mind, body and soul, and reignite the inner glow. With two options to chose from you will be relaxed in no time.
Some of the most tropical swimming pools I have ever been in, these are surrounded by luscious greenery which really gives you that exotic feel like you are on a deserted island somewhere. Have a float, listen to the birds chirp and relax the day away while cooling off from the Bali heat. With plenty of sun loungers around, I was quite happy laying here enjoying my book and chilling out.
Cook like a local
Take part in one of the best authentic cooking class in Bali. Together with their talented culinary team, learn how to perfectly bring out the complex Balinese flavors into your dish. This culinary journey will be held in a traditional Balinese kitchen with a wood fired oven to enhance the authenticity of the cooking process and you will also join the chef at the local markets to collect all of your ingredients.
You cant visit Bali and not go surfing. Canggu has waves suitable for surfers of every level. Motorbikes with surfboards attached driving towards one of the beaches ready to hit the waves, you will see these throughout the entire day. Expect surfers to be on their boards at 6 AM and can definitely get crowded quickly.
Pura Tanah Lot Temple
Pura Tanah Lot is one of those things you must do in Canggu. It is a complex and famous religious site located on top of a rock formation. Although Tanah Lot is extremely popular with foreign visitors throughout the whole day, Balinese people still come here to worship the Bali Sea gods which is a fantastic sight to see in itself.
The Ultimate Foodie Heaven
Canggu is literally a food heaven. During your trip here it is possible to have mouth-watering meals every single time you go out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Canggu hosts 311 restaurants and counting with so many different cuisines to pick from. With Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Vegan, and of course Indonesian, all top class food experiences and you won’t be disappointed.

The villa was fantastic, we had a super comfortable nights sleep and really enjoyed how spacious and light it was. The private swimming pool was my favourite highlight and the staff are so friendly, they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.
