Soori Bali, Indonesia
Some places work hard to achieve the wow factor, while for others it just happens. Soori Bali is just such a place. Away from Bali’s popular southern coast, the Tabanan Regency, in the rural west shows you what Bali is all about and for us is a true definition of the word ‘paradise’.
Your journey from the airport takes you through a montage of village life, rice paddies and rural living. On arrival it’s hard to know where to look first – the symmetry of the terraced rice paddies, the waves of the Indian Ocean crashing onto gleaming volcanic-sand beaches or the soaring volcanic mountains behind you. There is no getting away from it, this is the real face of Bali.
It’s all villa accommodation here, contemporary in style and colour but with flashes of local influence. All have private swimming pools and dedicated in-villa host service; what differs is the view. Beach Pool Villas are ground level with gardens and the beach to the front, whilst Ocean Pool Villas are on the upper level to maximise the views. Unusually for us, our favourite rooms here are the Mountain Pool Villas, indoor and outdoor spaces effortlessly intertwine, whilst mystical Mount Batukara on the distant horizon, is your backdrop. Definitely a room with a view!
The remote location means in-house dining. Cotta is the main restaurant serving tapas style dishes, even for breakfast! Ombak is the signature dining experience (a tasting menu is available) and the bar is the best spot to watch the vivid colours of the sunset.
What we actually love most about Soori Bali however is its complete sense of place. Whilst the pool, spa and rooms are beautiful, it’s the experiences created to immerse you in what makes Bali so magical, that we find most intriguing. Learn about rice cultivation and its religious significance, take a culinary journey visiting local markets then cooking the produce, visit coffee plantations and see rural life as you explore remote villages.
