Bali

It’s hard not to feel like all of Bali is a catalyst for mind, body, soul connection, or a narrative homage to Eat, Pray, Love. So much of its heritage and hospitality is built around healing, from the inland jungle of Ubud (which literally means “medicine”) to the coastal cliffside retreats in Ungasan, or the luxe offerings in plush Seminyak. No wonder this magical place is nicknamed the “Island of the Gods.” Here, is a round-up of top picks for those traveling to the island’s adventurous beachside backwaters further west, in up-and-coming Canggu.
