Canggu might just be the hippiest hood in all of Bali right now. Think beachfront cafes, laid–back bars, plenty of surf schools, resident yogis and quite possibly the juiciest selection of burgers on the whole island. Nestled between Seminyak and the Tanah Lot temple, Canggu is a surfer’s paradise, man.
Canggu is on the south coast of Bali just 10 kilometers north of the hustlin’ hub of Kuta, but it offers a different type of lifestyle than other Bali towns. Ubud is spiritual, Seminyak is trendy and Kuta is, well Kuta, but Canggu is made for surfers and anyone who loves beach culture.
Now there’s one more reason to spend time in Canggu: the new Aston Canggu Beach Resort, recently launched by our own Indonesian resort experts, Archipelago International.
It’s just a 5–minute walk from Batu Bolong Beach.
Batu Bolong Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Canggu and you’ll find a chill mix of locals, expats and tourists at any time of the year. The wind and wave conditions make it perfect for all types of watersports, especially surfing. You can rent surfboards for IDR100,000 (USD7.50) per day. The sandy shore also makes this beach perfect for relaxing. Go on and find a shady spot, lie back and watch the surfers hit the waves, listen to some good music, and just bask in the glorious sun.
One of the best parts of Aston Canggu Beach Resort is being immersed in Canggu’s beach culture. It’s just a short walk to all of the town’s hot spots. Clink bottles of beer with friends at Old Mans or grab a healthy breakfast at Canggu Café – nothing can go wrong at any time of the day.
Go from epic sunset views at the rooftop dining venue, to intimate cocktails at Cubana Restaurant and Bar.
The hotel features two tempting dining options; Cubana Restaurant & Bar in the lobby area and UpZscale Sky Dining & Bar on the rooftop, overlooking the Indian Ocean.
We love Cubana’s moody décor and intimate Latin America–meets–Bali style – great for sipping a strong Caipirinha after a long day at the beach. As for the rooftop dining, well who wouldn’t want to nosh on Balinese cuisine while looking off into the sunset, thinking “It’s…just…so…beautiful!”
The swimming pool situation is unbelievable.
Lounge the day away at Aston Canggu Beach Resort’s dreamy swimming pool, while you look out on the deep blue waves. Just get ready to make the tough decision between swimming in the ground floor lagoon or rooftop infinity pool. Decisions, decisions! This is what the good life’s about!
Cozy up to the view, because all guestrooms feature a private balcony.
The super stylish hotel embraces the beach life but still retains an air of exclusivity – which we could get used to. It offers 93 elegant guestrooms, including 40 Superior Rooms, 34 Deluxe Garden View rooms, 5 Deluxe Ocean View rooms, 13 Deluxe Lagoon rooms and 1 Suite, which we’re sure is amazing. And every single room features a private balcony for you to enjoy the fresh Balinese breeze at any time of night or day.
Last but not least, it’s a brand new hotel.
The hotel is brand spanking new, which means gleaming facilities and plush beds just waiting to be broken in.
The hotel, opened in December 2016, marks the 4th Aston property in Bali, joining the much loved Grand Aston Bali Beach Resort, Aston Denpasar Hotel & Convention Center and Aston Kuta Hotel & Residences.
