It’s a place to rest your bones, stir your senses, and expand your mind.
EAT & DRINK
Eat & Drink at The Slow is a contemporary take on ingredient-focused cooking with an island accent. Chef Shannon Moran draws upon his travels through Europe, South America and Asia to create an ever-changing menu of revamped classics, injecting bold, new exotic flavours, with an emphasis on seasonality, sustainability and sane eating. Fiery tastes honor Moran's desire to cook with open flame. The light and airy restaurant, under a highline of botanical chandeliers, is a magnetic meeting spot with friendly service and a bohemian sensibility. A café by day with private dining during the afternoon and evening, the menu focuses on wood-grilled meats and seafood, local vegetables, farm greens, and field grains. The inventive drinks selection, inspired by mythology and history and designed by London bartender Maya Jaworska, highlights specialty batch spirits, extractions and tonics, with all cocktails pre-batched in-house. A carefully selected wine list presents small growers, regional styles, and quaint vintage wines, encouraging guests to try some of the best old and new world wine the island has to offer. A small collection of local craft beers completes the thirst-quenching offerings. The restaurant connects to Room 13, The Slow’s gallery space, which features a barista station and rotating art collection.
A tropical brutalism aesthetic defines the rooms and surrounds, which feature native wood, perforated partitions, vertical screens, voided space, and inverted gardens. Every room offers floor-to-ceiling windows. Suites have huge signature screens that swivel open and frame views of Canggu beach and neighbouring villages, with glimpses of Bali’s volcanoes in the distance, while intimate Pool Suites are enclosed by lush jungle greenery around a private plunge pool. Local artisan-produced furniture and crafts and natural textures blend with industrial elements and custom pieces and mini bar by Mr. Sid. Suites configure to king or twin beds, and feature a rain shower, complimentary Wi-Fi, and locally made organic bath amenities.

Located at the crossroads of surf breaks, rice paddies, the mystical hills of Ubud, and cosmopolitan Seminyak, guests can choose to peace out or go play.
