Hotel Tugu Bali
Although Canggu Beach is separated from Kuta by just ten kilometres, its relaxed atmosphere and slow pace of life make it seem a million miles from the frenetic streets of Bali’s most popular tourist destination. Set against the backdrop of Canggu’s beautiful sea views, Hotel Tugu Bali is one of several hotels created by Anhar Setjadibrata, a man who has over the years created the nation’s largest collection of Indonesian fine art and cultural antiques. Setjadibrata designed his boutique museum hotels specifically to house his antiques, and to share with the world Indonesia’s fascinating and often-forgotten ancient culture. Hotel Tugu Bali is no exception, offering those that stay there the opportunity to take up residence in a building that stands as a monument to the region’s rich history.
