Seminyak's Slickest HotelBali, Indonesia
This isn’t really what you expect from a Balinese resort. At Luna2, designer and owner Melanie Hall has given 14 studio apartments more than a dash of pop-art creativity. Each is themed by colour and decked out with groovy art, modernist furniture and eye-popping accessories – think geometric rugs, Philippe Starck chairs and a maxi-bar stocked with Chupa Chups and champagne.
The studios are situated just 50 metres from the beach at Seminyak, but there’s a pool and spa for close-to-home dipping. In fact, the site is so pimped – top-notch food at Orbit restaurant, pumping tunes at the underground Pop! lounge, drinks with a view at the Space rooftop bar, and movies every day at Lunaplex cinema – you may be tempted not to leave at all. But you have to, and some point. And when you do feel up to emerging, give yourself a dose of nature in Bali's mountains while staying at Sang Giri Mountain Tent Resort.
