This boutique, village-style eco-resort overlooks glistening rice fields. The accommodation is an eclectic collection of lovingly restored antique wooden houses, each filled with hand-picked Indonesian antiques. But don’t worry, modern comforts are not forgotten: you can still crank up the air-con, watch cable TV and connect to high-speed wi-fi. Community is at the heart of Desa Seni and friendly staff will welcome you into the family, offering a level of intimacy that you can’t find in bigger resorts. Thoughtful touches include complimentary fruit platters and canang sari (flower offerings) left at your door each morning with incense and a card explaining how to make the offering to your own small temple. The flourishing organic gardens provide much of the produce served in the restaurant, while daily yoga classes in the garden pavilion are included in the room rate. Along with holistic spa treatments (including kids’ treatments) and customised retreat packages, a stay at Desa Seni is a mind-body-spirit experience.
The sleepy seaside district of Berawa has recently sprung to life with a number of charming cafés and restaurants. But the vibe is still laid back and it’s just a quick drive from the heart of Seminyak.
