Bali’s lat­est COMO re­sort.

DestinAsian - - DEPARTMENTS -

With its Fe­bru­ary de­but, Sin­ga­pore-based COMO Ho­tels and Re­sorts’ third Bali prop­erty looks set to se­ri­ously up the luxe fac­tor in Canggu, the in­creas­ingly trendy beach area north of Seminyak. Owner Christina Ong en­listed trusted de­sign­ers Koichiro Ike­buchi (who worked on her other Bali lo­ca­tions) and Paola Navone (be­hind COMO Point Yamu in Phuket) to cre­ate the look of the 119-room COMO Uma Canggu, and the re­sult is a union of con­tem­po­rary Asian and Ital­ian sen­si­bil­i­ties best re­vealed in the three-bed­room pent­houses, where 10-meter rooftop pools are framed by dra­matic arched rooflines. Given the re­sort’s lo­ca­tion on Echo Beach, surf­ing lessons are among the di­ver­sions, as are sun­down­ers at the surf shack–in­spired Beach Club. And be­cause this is a COMO prop­erty, there are well­ness op­tions aplenty at its Shamb­hala Re­treat spa: ev­ery­thing from spiced body masks and Dead Sea mud baths to pranayama breath­ing ex­er­cises, which you’ll need af­ter lay­ing eyes on the breath­tak­ing ocean views ( co­mo­ho­tels.com; dou­bles from US$200). —Natasha Dra­gun
