The Slow – Canggu

Canggu, Indonesia, From £130


The 12 suites of The Slow aim to redefine the parameters of boutique island luxe. With an acute sensitivity to textures and an irreverence for tradition, both the Pool Suite and The Grand Suite embody the aesthetic of tropical brutalism for which The Slow has become renowned.

The magnitude of void space and industrial elements is softened by indoor greenery and rays of sunlight on cotton curtains. Local artisan-produced furniture and crafts juxtapose audacious art and modernist bathroom facilities.

Design history

The Slow is the brainchild of the fashion rockstars from Ksubi - aka Gareth Moody and George Gorrow. Ksubi denim is a wardrobe staple for many, with their no-fuss tees, dresses and jackets gracing the forms of A-list celebrities around the world. It’s a style that’s carried into the hotel in the design of the building and its interior.

Music in the air

Reverberation Radio is a collaboration between LA band Allah-Las and friends. Their mission is to uncover forgotten obscure pop and instrumental music. The mixes, which they post online, have no decade, culture or country ties. But they seem to intertwine effortlessly. And provide the soundtrack to your adventure.
