The blissful Bali few know
FEW destinations evoke visions of paradise like Bali. There’s one corner of Bali that remains largely untouched and delivers
on these visions of paradise. It is still a pristine, culturally vibrant and spiritually charged local preserve that slips under the majority of travellers’ radars: Tabanan Regency. A vast patchwork of blazing green and gold rice fields blankets the area’s 839 square kilometres, nurtured by an
irrigation system. This is Bali, the rice bowl of Indonesia. On the edge of a black diamond sand beach surrounded by
rice fields, the independently owned and operated Soori Bali was conceived as a private vacation home for the family of architect Soo K. Chan. Yet the setting was so breathtakingly beautiful that Soo expanded his original vision from a private retreat to a more public experience.
All of Soori Bali’s 48 villas have private pools with sweeping vistas of the ocean or rice fields under the gaze of Mount
Batukaru. The EarthCheck Gold-certified resort has an infinity pool, gymnasium, library, spa, helipad, two gourmet restaurants, leisure concierge and butler service, and round-the-clock room service. DETAILS: sooribali.com
