I fell in love with Lila Boutik Residence from the moment I spotted the beautiful photos on Airbnb. The 'luxe nomad' in me was instantly enchanted by the interiors, the cute little design touches, the colour palette and, of course, the sparkling pool. And the unicorn pool floatie sealed the deal. Yes, I'm still a little kid at heart! I must say, I had two of my best night's sleep in this gorgeous room and the bathroom was perfect too. A 'luxe yogi' always needs a good place to plug in the ol' hair straightener, am I right?
Just as the pictures described, this was one stylish little BnB, with a Morocca-meets-Ibiza kinda vibe, decorated beautifully by a couple of artist expats (couldn't you guess?). It provided a cool little haven in the middle of Canggu's hippest northern fringe, right next door to Samadi Bali yoga centre, and just a short stroll from eateries like Crate Café, Copenhagen, Bali Buda and Rise & Shine – all of which will serve you up a coconut milk latte and a smoothie bowl to die for!
Of course, you could always just chill by the pool here, which has a cute little kitchen/bar that feels like a tropical cabana where you can order simple treats like coffee, juices and smoothie bowls through the day. Truly, this stay had such a nice vibe, charming hosts and a great position, in a quiet lane beside the rice paddies but still so close to the action. So many stars!
