On the wild, less visited shores of south-west Bali, a new level of luxury has arrived with Soori Bali. Architecturally accomplished and sublimely minimalist villas – ranging in size from one to 10 bedrooms – each with their own pool and courtyard overlooking the cerulean Indian Ocean. The natural setting between verdant rice paddies and a shimmering volcanic-sand beach has been enhanced by lush gardens and reflective ponds. Add a slick spa, decadent dining options and service from personal hosts and you're in a pampering paradise.
- Close to the island's most sacred temple, Tanah Lot.
- Unspoilt and untouched, enjoy a taste of the real Bali, with virgin beaches and lush emerald green rice paddies.
- Enjoy a visit to the local village on a Segway.
- A stellar Spa with a great range of treatment options, and heavenly therapists.
- Enjoy a tasting breakfast each morning, catering for everyone’s taste.
- Enjoy potent, yet utterly delicious cocktails served as the sun sets.
How to get there
Set on the south-western coast of Bali, the Soori Bali nestles in the scenic Tabanan Regency. The nearest airport is Ngurah Rai International Airport, which is just a little over an hour from the resort.
Best time to go
May to October are generally considered the best times of year to travel with average temperatures around 31°C. Rainy season is between December and March.
This is a strikingly good-looking hotel located in an undeveloped part of Bali. You can walk for hours on the volcanic sands, whilst observing Balinese life at its simplest. Soori Bali is great for weddings, honeymoons and family holidays alike. Our favourite room is ocean villa 207, which is blessed with stunning views of the sea and offers complete privacy. If powder white beaches are your thing, you may be put off by the black volcanic sand.

Younger guests are very welcome and a babysitting service is available. The three-bedroom villas work best for families. All ages can participate in Balinese dancing lessons to get into the local groove. Rafting, horseback riding, surfing and bicycling are on offer for older children as well. Many of the customised programmes, focused on cultural activities, are suitable for youngsters, but the Leisure Concierge and personal butlers are the best sources of advice for this type of family planning. Special children's menus are available at all of the restaurants.
