Where should I stay when I come to Bali? This is the question I get asked the most! That’s why I decided to put a list together for you guys. You can read about which Canggu Accommodation I stayed when I first came to Bali and what friends recommended to me.
Places where I stayed:
This is the place where I stayed the longest in Canggu. I love Rama Village for its location (right in the heart of Canggu), for the pool and most of all for the great people who own this accommodation. This place was my home during my first month in Bali and whenever I needed a short-term stay in Canggu. It is close to Canggu beach and also to all the healthy cafes and yoga places. If you don’t feel comfortable driving a motorbike yet, this place is ideal, because you can even walk to different places – although don’t forget how hot it is in Bali. 🙂
Simply book your room online and once you are there Putu and her staff will help you with everything else you need.
Only a hundred meter away from Rama Village is this cute Canggu Accommodation. I stayed there one week when Rama Village was fully booked and had a wonderful time. The rooms are amazing, but nothing beats the smashed avocado on toast in the morning. This is also a place to stay in Bali when you don’t like driving around too much and would like to be in the center of the action. Voyager also organizes outdoor movie nights and other happenings. Fun times.
A Canggu accommodation for those who want to stay in a villa, but couldn’t find anything cool from private owners. You can choose between different villa-styled rooms with your own kitchen. Some of the rooms even have a private pool and the others have a shared pool. The apartments are located near Echo Beach in a quiet road next to Batu Bolong (which is the main road). This means this accommodation is still in the center of Canggu and I just fell in love with the interior design – it is a mix between Bali and boho.
When I was traveling around Bali with my friend, we stayed in this Canggu Accommodation for three weeks and we loved it. If you are looking for a little more luxe this might be not the place for you, but if you want to do a lot of yoga, eat healthy food and meet great people – this is where you should go! I met so many great people here, did yoga twice a day, attended workshops and ate in their healthy restaurant. I love that Serenity is taking care of our planet and sustainability is the most important thing for them. You don’t need to drive anywhere to do yoga, just get up, put your yoga pants on and do it! It is also just a one-minute walk from the beach and in my opinion a great place to stay. You will get to experience a real Canggu feeling.
Canggu Accommodations my friends stayed at and recommend.
Since I haven’t stayed in the following accommodations I haven’t seen then rooms, but only heard good things about them.
On my bucket list! Luxury hotel right at the beach in Canggu (next to Old mans)
Also in a great location: only about 800 meters to walk to Canggu beach (Old mans), while Echo beach surf spot is a 3-minutes bike ride away.
Right near Echo beach. A cool spot for meeting other people. They even offer a free shuttle to Seminyak if you need more hustle and bustle.
All these hotels are on side of the short cut road. What is the short cut road? Read in my blog post about this popular road in Canggu. There is now even an Instagram account that posts about the funniest pictures from people who fell into the rice fields 🙂
What to consider when choosing your Canggu Accommodation:
- Location: When you choose where to stay in Bali make sure that you are located in the center of Canggu especially if you are a woman, traveling alone. Driving home alone on your scooter can be dangerous. Check out my map above.
- Does your Canggu Accommodation offer any additional services? It’s always helpful if someone can organize a scooter for you.
- Is transport from the airport included? If not make sure you don’t pay more than IDR 250k each way
