From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
A short drive from Seminyak along winding back roads, Desa Seni is a change from the synthetic perfection of most resorts in Bali: Set amid rice terraces, ten integral antique houses from all over the Indonesian archipelago—Sumatra, Java, Lombok, and Bali—create a storybook town with meandering cobble paths. The rooms are furnished with rustic antiques: old wooden farming implements, spinning wheels, massive millstones, and cowbells. It could easily have turned out hokey, but tasteful eyes have been at work, and creature comforts haven't been neglected, with luxurious bathrooms added behind the houses, and DVD players and free Internet access in rooms. Complimentary yoga classes are held daily except Sunday in a wide, breezy pavilion, and there's a pretty saltwater pool. Dining options focus on fish and poultry dishes in healthy sauces concocted with vegetables from the resort's organic gardens.2007 Hot List
