Canggu is Bali’s playground. It has the perfect waves for surfing, all the hottest beach clubs and sunset spots, lots of cute small restaurants and cafes and local arts and sports communities. Aston Canggu Beach Resort came at the right time, just as Canggu is getting lots of local and international attention. They offers access to the beach, no fuss accomodation, cool vibes and so much more. We stayed there, and we decided that we LOVE CANGGU. Here are seven reasons why we love Aston Canggu Beach Resort.
1. Location, Location, Location
In Canggu, there’s two famous beaches: Batu Bolong Beach and Berawa Beach. Aston Canggu Beach Resort is located strategically right by Batu Bolong Beach. You are literally a few steps away from the beach, the hip Old Man’s restaurant, The Lawn and many more. If you’re familiar with the area, then you know that this is the destination for surfers, skateboarders and bike riders who flocks to Deus Temple of Enthusiasm. With so many attractions nearby, and that sunset facing them everyday, Aston Canggu Beach Resort hit the motherlode with their location.
2. Spacious & Affordable Rooms
When you stay at Aston Canggu Beach Resort, all the rooms (except for the 1 Suite) are of the same size and style. What differentiates these rooms are the view or access. They have 40 Superior Rooms with the City or Pond view; 34 Deluxe Garden view rooms, 13 Deluxe Lagoon rooms with access to the lagoon pool; and 5 Deluxe Ocean rooms on the third floor that faces the beautiful sea. The room is spacious and cozy. It has big comfortable bed, a work desk and private balcony. Whether you’re there for business or leisure, the Aston Canggu Beach Resort’s rooms are compact and functional, yet still gave us that warm and homey feeling.
3. Gorgeous Rooftop Pool
One thing that Aston Canggu Beach Resort has is height. They’re the tallest building in the neighbourhood, and this makes their rooftop one of a kind. You can see the beach and sunset from here. So when you’re a guest, you get access to the beautiful pool that’s just perfect for sunbathing, cooling off and watching the sunset. The pool is the center of the rooftop, surrounded by UpZscale Sky Dining & Bar, lounge chairs and cute swings. There’s a big neon signs that reads LOVE CANGGU right in the middle of the pool, with a unicorn floaties nearby. There’s adult pool and children pool area. So whether you want to exercise, play with your kids, escape the Bali heat or simply dip your toes in the water while enjoying delicious cocktails, this pool is perfect!
4. The Lagoon
If you’re lucky enough to score the Deluxe Lagoon room, you can get great access to the lagoon. The whole building is layouted in a way so that a long lagoon could spread between rooms. On these lagoons are little islands with greeneries that cools off the area. We love that there’s so many options to dip your toes in this hotel. You can basically roam around in your bikinis all day long.
5. Breakfast on the Rooftop
At Aston Canggu Beach Resort, breakfast is done on the 5th floor at UpZscale Sky Dining & Bar. They have a big area with glass walls facing the ocean and the pool. In the indoor dining area, there’s a big spread of food. We like to start off with the porridge with lots of condiments. The egg station are there right next to the waffle and pancake station, the bread station, the cereal station, salad and the hot stations with bacon, baked beans, and many more. You can sit outside so you can see that sea, enjoy breakfast by the swing or where ever you want. In the morning, we can see all the surfers while eating a bowl of cereal. The mood is so chill and will lift up our spirit to start the day!
6. Cubana Restaurant & Bar
Right by the lobby, facing the busy street or Canggu, stood Cubana Restaurant and Bar. We love the place so much that we wrote a whole review here. Cubana in its decor, its flavours and its menu offers an authentic Cuban experience. They’ve got the Ensaladas (salads), De Sopas (soups), Sandwiches, Carne (meat) to, well, dessert. It’s not to be missed.
7. UpZscale Sky Dining & Bar
The restaurant lies by the poolside and overlooks the Indian Ocean. Different from its sister restaurant that focuses on Cuban Cuisines, UpZscale Sky Dining & Bar offers Asian and International menu. With this more general menu, you can get easy and delicious food options after you finished in the pool, or just finishing great surf sessions. Because of their glass walls, this place became ideal for those looking to have a romantic dinner.
