GOING WITH THE FLOW
Home to one of Indonesia’s six presidential palaces, the Balinese town of Tampaksiring now boasts another set of palatial lodgings at Hoshinoya Bali, the first property outside Japan by Hoshino Resorts. Here, the overall aesthetic is decidedly traditional, from the alang-alang roofs atop the private pavilions to the exuberantly carved walls and furnishings of its 30 villas. All are arranged around three canal-like swimming pools—a nod to the island’s subak irrigation system and the nearby Pakerisan River. In the kitchen, fresh Balinese ingredients are given the Japanese treatment, putting an unexpected spin on multi-course kaiseki meals ( hoshinoyabali.com).
