Concierge.com's insider take:
Lovina Beach on Bali's north shore was the exclusive domain of backpackers and families on a budget until Danish hotelier Nils Normann looked up from the beach and envisioned a country inn on the forested hills above. Opened in 1995, the Damai offers traditional-style bungalows that flank a verdant garden and 2,100-square-foot pool villas on a gorge overlooking the sea. The 42 guest rooms are furnished with Balinese antiques and beautifully crafted hardwood furniture that overflows onto private verandas. The food at the Damai is alone worth a trip: Conceived by Normann's friend Per Thøstesen, a Danish chef who trained with Paul Bocuse, the Continental menu uses organic herbs and vegetables grown in the hotel's gardens. The Damai also raises its own quail, ducks, rabbits, frogs, snails, and pigs—at a discreet distance.—Jamie James
