2. The Longhouse, Bali
The lesser-known area of Bali’s fishing village Jimbaran is spotlighted with the opening of The Longhouse, a hotel-cum-private-villa destination. Perched on gentle hills, the luxurious accommodation strays away from the predictable hotel offerings; instead, it thoughtfully tributes Balinese culture with design elements such as hand-carved batik motifs and Ikat tapestry, showcased to complement the lush surroundings. No two are the same when it comes to The Longhouse’s six bedroom suites, featuring Bali’s own handiwork and locally-sourced materials such as bamboo furniture and rooms moulded out of volcanic stone. Amenities to look out for are an infinity pool and even a hilltop studio where yoga session can be carried out. The destination doesn’t scrimp on its dining offerings, which include a traditional Indonesian feast to even garden barbecues and candlelit banquets.
