COMO Uma Canggu

Bali’s surf-chic beachside retreat

Surfing is a lifestyle in Bali's happening beach town of Canggu. But at COMO Uma Canggu, a stylish beachside resort and wellness refuge, surfer-style luxury really comes into its own.

Tucked into the shoreline of Echo Beach, one of the island's most coveted left-hand surf breaks, this laidback island hideaway puts a polished spin on Bali boho. It's one thing to get acquainted with Canggu's famous barrels, it's another to be able to roll out of bed and size up the wave curls each morning from your upscale penthouse.

Alongside 52 rooms and 55 residences spread out around a sprawling 115-meter lagoon pool, the resort has 12 contemporary, three-bedroom penthouses, each with a private rooftop pool and sun-drenched deck for cocktails or yoga, or both.

The trendy crowd clings to the main arteries of Canggu for its superfood cafés, edgy bars and Zen yoga spaces, but Echo Beach has authentic appeal. Once you're into a rhythm of surf, sunset, sleep, repeat, you won't want to leave the hotel, but if you do, a cross-cultural infusion awaits.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The hotel's laidback beach ethos comes alive at COMO Beach Club, an all-day hangout with an upscale surf shack vibe and swing beds overlooking the 25-meter pool.
  • Wellness is thoughtfully integrated into the Canggu hotel, with two Pilates studios, a large gym with CrossFit and TRX training stations, scheduled classes and COMO Shambhala Cuisine (try the nut and seed “real” toast with avocado) and spa treatments.
  • Resident luxury surf experts from Tropicsurf offer English-speaking guides, tuition for all abilities and excursions to breaks accessed only via boat.
  • COMO Penthouses are ideal for private parties and family gatherings, and guests can arrange a chef to cook for up to 20 people on the outdoor deck.
  • Some of the ground-floor one-bedroom residences open straight up onto the shared lagoon pool, which is so spacious that it still feels private.

Things to Know

  • For the best vistas, stay in a one-bedroom residence that overlooks the lagoon or a penthouse facing the ocean.
  • The hotel's dining offerings are limited to the beach club, but there's a diverse range of eats, from fish tacos to Middle Eastern mezze plates. Plus, it pours an extensive array of barrel-aged cocktails.

The Rooms

  • The light and airy Garden Patios have an external courtyard featuring an outdoor shower and daybed, while the one-bedroom residences sport rain showers and either a free-standing or jet-spray tub.
  • Each room comes equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine.
  • Décor is pared-back and modern, and accommodations are appointed in raw, beach-chic palettes of taupe, bone and nautical bursts of navy and cerulean.

Nearby Attractions

  • Just moments from the Bali hotel, you will find local seafood beach barbecue venues, grilled corn stalls and rustic warungs (tiny shops) serving up sunsets and local flair.
  • Canggu's buzzy main strip of Jalan Batu Bolong is a stone's throw away. Indulge in quality eats from spots like The Slow, Billy Ho and Mason.
  • The Balinese-Hindu sea temples of Tanah Lot are about a 30-minute drive from the resort, depending on traffic. Go at sunrise to avoid the crowds.
