Roxana is a chameleon. She’s a designer, illustrator, coffee aficionado, creative director, animal lover but, most importantly, a woman who is opened to the world and sees travel as an inspiration for new ways of thinking, of creating and living. Roxana enjoys travelling to faraway, unexpected places and she shares with us her favorite “slow” and (while it lasts) off-the-beaten tracks places in Bali. Welcome to Canggu.
Samadi Bali is a fabulous hidden gem. The villa counts only 10 elegant rooms with big windows that open either towards a beautifully designed swimming pool, perfect for a morning dip or the endless rice paddy fields, suitable for sunset lovers. Choosing one of the options can be trickily!
Samadi Bali is all about feeling good: inside and outside. Their private and gorgeous studio offers daily yoga classes, for both beginners and experienced practitioners while their “slow food” restaurant comes with a healthy and delicious menu of vegetarian, vegan choices and typical Indian and Indonesian food.
Canggu is a village that has a wild and authentic vibe, with huge and perfect round shaped waves, volcanic black sand beaches and surfers seeking for pure adrenalin. It’s the perfect option for travelers looking to escape mass tourism and loudly resorts. This magic place answers the taste of the pickiest slow travelers. Foodies and 3d wave coffee will head to Café Organic, Satu-Satu or Ulekan while bohemian home decor connoisseurs will hurry up to visit Bungalow Living and Cove Island Essentials for their large variety of handmade, local products. Looking for a day trip? Adventure seekers will enjoy the beauty of the golden lost paradise beaches around Uluwatu, easily accessible on scooter. The perfect slow, never ending summer getaway.
