A multifaceted island stay incorporating boutique accommodation, all-day dining, drinks, art, local culture, and interactive retail, all set on the coast of Canggu, Bali. Sustainability was never an afterthought for The Slow. It was a founding principle that guided the hotel through the early days of sourcing construction materials and curating furniture, well before its floors and the walls had even appeared. The Slow continues to work with the island’s passionate change-makers to make sustainability a core focus of what they do and what others are inspired to do.
