Best Boutique Hotels in Bali by Design

This guide presents some of the hottest design driven boutique properties across  Bali – “The Island of the Gods”. If you are planning a trip to this paradisaical island, there is no better way to enhance your experience than through a stay at one of the featured hand-picked properties.


Seminyak, Bali


Don’t let the brutalist red brick exterior of the hotel put you off. Set within its red brick walls, this contemporary hotel with its mid-century designed furniture is an ode to centuries old Indonesian craftsmanship. Katamama delivers on several fronts in terms of its rich collection of well curated and handcrafted furnishings that are steeped in the island’s traditions yet presented in an all but modern ethic by Indonesian architect – Andra Matin. Sourcing local materials from the red bricks, sustainable wood, indigenous textiles and basketry, there isn’t a detail in it’s design that has been left out.

Well situated in buzzing Seminyak, the hotel is anchored right at the door step of another Bali great – The Potato Head Beach Club.

Canggu, Bali


Nestled not to far from the volcanic sandy beaches of the popular Canggu surf spot, The Slow provides for an immersive art and cultural experience throughout its property with it’s industrial-bohemian design with its polished concrete floors and the owner’s private art collection that adorns the walls throughout the property. With some quality art pieces on show, you would not be mistaken in feeling like you had decided to spend the night at an art gallery.

Once you have indulged in the artwork on display, head down to the beach and grab a board – surf instructors are available and if you are just happy watching the sun set over the crashing waves you should try out the epic Happy Hour at Old Man’s.

Sanur, Bali


Just steps away from the beach in Sanur, as the name of the hotel suggests, art plays a central role in the design of this property. Expect original artworks by talented local artists to be presented throughout the hotel in creative and unexpected ways. With its design concept based on the Sanur Kite Festival (an event that takes place through July-October), the hotel acts as a canvas for local contemporary artists.

Located just minutes from the airport and the beach at Sanur, you are sure to be close to all the action – whether its restaurants or shopping. Check out the rooftop bar and lounge – BART – for some treetop views of the area. While you are in the area, make sure you visit the Kevala Ceramics shop and Lakeman Ceramic shop for some glazed up inspiration.
