We absolutely loved COMO Uma Canggu’s minimalist chic and contemporary design. The property uses a lot of white, all across the lobby, the adjoining restaurant Glow and spa centre COMO Shambhala, and it makes for an instantly serene, soothing environment. We were given cold towels and welcome drinks while we checked in, and the team was very friendly and professional.
We stayed in a one-bedroom residence, which was ultra modern and brand new. Really great if you want to feel like you’re in your own space – it functions just like an apartment, with spaces carved out for different activities. Our favourite part was that the residence was filled with natural light throughout the day, thanks to the open nature of the architecture.
Top marks for the very comfortable bed, and the amazing jacuzzi!
Food & drink
We had breakfast everyday at COMO Beach Club – definitely the best part about staying here. COMO Beach Club is one of Bali’s most sought-after destinations right now, so we made full use of our access. The food was excellent, with a wide-ranging menu and a focus on really great, fresh local ingredients.
After breakfast, we spent the rest of the day on a sunlounger by the pool – can you blame us? There’s also yoga, surf tuition and spa time available.
The COMO Shambhala Retreat is famous, and at COMO Uma Canggu there are eight treatment rooms and a focus on hands-on healing and holistic treatments. Massages and facials, of course, but also daily wellbeing classes including yoga and Pilates. The service at the spa is absolutely impeccable.
Then there’s the gym, a beautiful, modern space that is also open to the public. Floor-to-ceiling windows mean it’s filled with that all-important natural light, and is well-equipped with machines, TRX© Suspension Training and CrossFit stations. Plus, personal trainers, if you need them.
Our favourite part
How to choose? We loved the huge swimming pool, and our room was so comfortable and homely. Plus, the jacuzzi with the salt bath! Of course, COMO Beach Club was a standout experience – even if you’re not staying there, it’s a must-do. Non COMO guests just have to spend a minimum of IDR500,000 to dine in.
