Bottom Line

The Soori Bali is a luxurious beachfront resort set on lush grounds surrounded by rice paddies. Features include two restaurants, a volcanic-sand beach, a beautiful spa, and a stunning infinity-edge pool overlooking the sea -- though all of the hotel’s 48 villas have private pools of their own. Villas are spacious, ranging from one-bedroom units to a lavish 10-bedroom estate complete with private gym, spa, chauffeur services, and more. Each is equipped with an array of modern amenities such as Apple TVs, Nespresso machines, and free Wi-Fi, as well as luxurious bathrooms with deep tubs and rainfall showers. As with most five-pearl hotels, rates are high, and the peaceful, secluded location might not suit everyone. Travelers might also want to check out the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort, which has an 18-hole golf course.

Soori Bali

Scene

Luxurious beachfront resort with minimalist architecture and lush grounds

Sitting on gorgeous green grounds dotted with palm trees and lush plants, this five-pearl resort combines sleek minimalist architecture with traditional Balinese touches and stunning sea views. Once past the simple, stark entrance where a reflection pool sprouts green grasses and delicate trees, guests enter an equally zen open-air lobby with a glossy tile floor and teakwood roof. Simple, sparse furnishings include sofas and padded rattan chairs that offer seating with a view of another glassy-surfaced pool and beyond that, the sea. The resort is composed of minimalist, concrete structures that contrast with the surrounding lush greenery, with vines and plants creeping over the stone and skirting paved paths and staircases meandering across the grounds. The remote location surrounded by rice fields suits travelers seeking a peaceful escape with a heaping dose of luxury, and couples and families make up the clientele.
