Stay: Own Villa
Own Villa is an intimate riverside resort, surrounded by a lush tropical jungle and overlooking the rice fields of Bali, Indonesia. This place is perfect for anyone looking for the privacy of a villa with the hospitality of a boutique hotel. There are only four Sumatran-style open-air villas to choose from, complete with private terraces, gazebos, and rain showers. Enjoy the infinity pool, naturally blending into the environment or relax with traditional Balinese treatments. Own is available to be rented as a whole, making it a perfect retreat for a group of friends or the whole family, or any travellers craving complete privacy.
Eat: Order a lunch to the villa and eat in a location of your choice. The staff make daily trips to the market, for fresh and local fair of your choosing.
See: Take a trip to the Tanah Lot Temple. While it is beautiful at sunset, that's when it draws the biggest crowd.

Enjoy the in-house restaurant and art gallery, as well as the cool, laid-back atmosphere, all to the soundtrack of LA’s Reverberation Radio.
Do: Go surfing at Batu Bolong or Echo Beach nearby.
