The Slow

CREATIVES WORK HARD AND PLAY slow at this stylish boutique stay in Bali’s happening Canggu. A cultured oasis on buzzy Jalan Batu Bolong, The Slow has just 12 spacious, design-led rooms that are oozing with inspiration, plus a rooftop bar and relaxed all-day diner with power points, fast Wi-Fi and good coffee. There are no obvious distractions, such as TVs or even a communal pool, instead the regular art exhibitions and curated tunes from L.A.-based Reverberation Radio point to a deeper level of sophistication. When you’re not tapping away on your laptop, some of the island’s best yoga studios and beachfront sunsets are only a five-minute walk away.
