Escape the cold with a jaunt to sunny Bali, where this month sees the grand debut of Como Uma Canggu. The latest resort from the Singapore-based Como brand—which helped define Bali’s status as a wellness hub with the opening of its iconic Como Shambhala Estate in 2005—will house 119 accommodations, including one- and two-bedroom residences and three-bedroom duplex penthouses with rooftop pools, all designed with Asian- and Italian-inspired touches.
An outpost of the Como Shambhala Retreat will allow guests access to regular fitness and wellness programming, as well as holistic therapies and signature spa treatments, while dining choices like a beach club and juice bar will highlight healthy options. The area around the resort is known for its top-notch surfing, and guests of the Como can catch a glittering Indian Ocean wave themselves via the in-house luxury surfing program, operated in partnership with Tropicsurf, and available for all skill levels.
If you’re heading to Bali for Valentine’s Day, make sure to reserve at romantic table at Kubu—the Mediterranean-European restaurant at Ubud’s Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve resort—or Métis, Seminyak’s fine-dining venue helmed by lauded local chef Nicolas “Doudou” Tourneville. The former serves exquisite multi-course dinners in cozy bamboo cocoons for utmost privacy while the latter brings a Balinese twist to traditional French cuisine.
