HOTELS & RESORTS
Canggu has rapidly changed over the last couple of years and the opening of The Slow has cemented the direction and feel of this area.
It’s hard to go past The Slow and not stop by to take a look inside. The austere and modern exterior lures you in to discover a contemporary architectural oasis.
The downstairs consists of a restaurant and bar, their art gallery, and a retail store as cool as the décor that surrounds it.
The restaurant and bar’s combination of polished and unpolished cements surfaces, granite floors, wooden ceilings and windows are a beautiful fusion of materials that perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the hotel’s vibe and interiors. The dining area is mixed with beautiful living spaces and a stunning picture from photographer Greg Nagel to inspire a casual surf-like vibe adding a signature air to the sophisticated space. The lighting and music is beautiful and unobtrusive.
The hotel contains only 12 suites which are very generous in size and continue the allure of understated luxury. The contrast of Indonesian crafted furniture with seductive and modern art creates a sensual contemporary decor experience. Some of the suites contain their own swimming pool and all of the rooms have their own chill out area making them feel like a gorgeous studio apartment rather than a hotel room.
Owned by George Gorrow (ex-Ksubi creative director, designer and art aficionado) and wife Cisco Gorrow (model, yoga teacher, surfer and ceramic maker) it’s easy to see why this boutique hotel is destined to be very successful but more than that, it has become the place to stay in Canggu.
