Towards the end of my recent trip to Bali I decided to stay closer to the beach as I really wanted to just enjoy the awesome chilled life in Canggu and catch those never ending waves dished up by the local surfs pots. The Canggu Apartments was the perfect place to do exactly that as it is only a 5 minute scooter ride away from the beach, hip cafes, shops and nightlife and far enough to be able to come home to a quiet relaxed atmosphere.
I got to stay in Apartment Blue which is one of 3 apartments surrounding a beautiful pool in the middle. Every apartment is aimed at short term as well as longterm travellers with a well equipped kitchen, lounge area and little courtyard. I really enjoyed this set up as it literally felt like your own home which is nice if you have been travelling for a while and have been living out of your bags and small hotel rooms. The only difference to a normal home, you don't have to clean it :). Room service as well as internet is of course included adding to the well rounded service.
I loved the huge mirror in the bedroom which turned out to be the door to the bathroom. Such a great feature! The staff and especially Rosarita, one of the managers were extremely hospitable. I felt extremely welcome and whenever I needed something there was someone to help out straight away.
A unique bonus of The Apartments Canggu is the integrated clothing store in the lobby. The brands, a collection of luxurious resort and summer garments, are a creation by the owner of the apartments. The clothes include bright colours with gorgeous sequin detailing and beautiful material. (Dresses: Kaleidoscope / Available at Kaleidoscope in Seminyak and The Apartments Umalas)
