When it comes to Bali, there’s a myriad of stylish accommodation choices for design enthusiasts; lush private villas, minimalist boutique hotels, luxury balinese resorts. In the heart of surf village Canggu, Fella Villas has elements of all three: a tropical oasis with the warmth of a villa, the sophistication of a hotel and the unrivalled tranquility of an island resort.
Fella Villas puts a great big smile on your face from the moment you step inside. Featuring objects reminiscent of a lifetime of travels, this modern villa brings you the very best in design characterised by a thoughtful use of colour, texture and space. Combining locally made Balinese craftsmanship with heavy infusions of Mexican and South American art and textiles, there’s a strong focus on both culture and design – and that’s just the interior.

Immersed in nature, designers Rosie Iffla and Christine Tang from iconic Australian swimwear label Fella Swim, have enlivened every corner of this three bedroom three bathroom luxury villa with exotic plant life. The two master bedrooms are mirrored with equally impressive open-air bathrooms framed by luscious and bright green florae. The two rain showers, shaded by overhanging banana trees, are absolute heaven.
When I travel, I love to have breakfast in the neighbourhood with the locals, and in Canguu there’s no shortage of carefully curated coffee spots. We stumbled across local hangout, Gypsy; overlooking the rice paddies, this modern, industrial-style cafe is the perfect pit stop for your first espresso of the day. On your walk back to the villa, be sure to stop by French bakery and patisserie Monsieur Spoon for a couple of freshly baked croissants or popular cafe Crate for good vibes and a takeaway pizza to enjoy back by the pool.
After a long flight, there’s really only one thing on my mind: relaxation. Leaning back into the woven hammock with a fresh coconut, I think I’ve found the perfect tropical escape.
