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.
