GO­ING WITH THE FLOW

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO - —Daniel Har­tanto

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).
