The Mulia

Jan 10, 2014

THOUGH THERE’S NO SHORTAGE of over-the-top indulgent hotels in Bali these days, The Mulia stands out from the pack thanks to a series of thoughtful, inventive touches. Take the beds, for example: Even the lowest room category comes with a supremely fluffy mattress worth a cool US$8,000. That level of luxe extends to the dining scene, where hotel patrons can enjoy crisp cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms at brunch in addition to more standard fare. And their spa, with extras like a snow room and a vast menu of treatments, is almost worth a trip by itself. All guests have access to these features, but the resort is actually split into three separate properties. Up a hill from the Mulia Resort are the Mulia Villas, for guests seeking a little extra privacy. Adjacent is The Mulia, a collection of suites that come with perks like daily high tea with free-flow alcohol and sweets.

Capella Ubud Bali

Hotel designer Bill Bensley has dreamed up some of Southeast Asia’s most glamorous resorts, but his favorite travel memories are those of childhood camping trips. That love of nature, along with Bensley’s obsession with old-world style, informed his vision for the first Balinese property from the Singapore-based Capella Hotel Group.
