Surfers have been in on the secret for years, but now luxury hounds also have a reason to seek out laid-back Canggu Beach. Bali boutique hotel Ametis Villa brings sophistication to this seaside haunt, with pool-toting villas, 24-hour butler service and relaxed wining and dining, just 20 minutes from buzzy Seminyak.
Book a couple's treatment room at Ruby Spa for a pampering session à deux.
If you tire of lounging by the pool or exhaust your supply of 250 films, Ametis can hook you up with a host of activities, including surfing sessions, sailing, scuba diving, white-water rafting, horseriding and elephant safaris. That ought to keep you occupied for a while...
Food lovers, jump on board the market tour and cooking class. Seek out fresh produce with the hotel's chef, then whip up an Indonesian meal back at your villa. Don't fancy manning the pans yourself? Have staff arrange a romantic picnic lunch for two on Canggu Beach.
