Masked away, in what you may think to believe, your own part of this Indonesian landscape sits hidden and nestled an untouched coast of culture and vast panoramic views. Located in Banjar Dukuh, Soori Bali known to many millennials as the “Kardashian hotel” after their stay here, but for the rest of us, It’s just so much more.
Set on the edge of the ocean between the Mount Batukaru and terraced rice ﬁelds, Soori Bali is a hidden refuge. The highest level of Luxury, indulgence, romance, serenity, and rejuvenation. The Building took on by renowned SCDA Architects, headed by Soo K Chan the interiors and building on arrival express why this is one of the best hotels in the world.
Lush gardens, water courts, and air wells organically interplay with the elements of volume, light, and surface. Inspired and sourced from local design, materials are industrial, lines are simple, elongating and expansive. Walls are clad in paras kelating, a cool grey sandstone manually extracted and transported from the banks of a nearby river and this is just the beginning of what it means to be socially responsible and Soori Bali steps up to the plate and goes above and beyond.
From seasonal offering fruit and vegetables sourced from local markets to the terracotta tiles carved with traditional Balinese motifs which adorn the property are locally commissioned from a village situated just 15 minutes away. Whatever Soori Bali has to sell, we’ll probably buy.
The resort has sat atop the list of one of the places we’ve wanted to visit for quite some time, but for those traveling through Bali and using Soori as that much need Luxury stop off, whilst not as pricey as you’d expect in the west or back at home, but in comparison to other Luxury Hotels across the island, Soori Bali has spared no expense on the price of comfort and neither should you.
The grounds are steeped in tradition whilst the amenities, fine dining, exceptional staff, and breathtaking views all add to the Luxe living and home-away-from-home feel we all crave when holidaying. Chauffeur services are offered to guests for ease of getting around, or those just not wanting to walk the 50 yards to breakfast. Drivers will escort you around the ground, door to door and it’s services such as this that make this hotel vast by scale but truly boutique in its experience. The rooms are also tailored to you from check-in. (Decide on Pillow choice, bedding, breakfast to even what world newspaper will accompany eggs and seasonal juice in the morning).
