    Beautiful, edgy hotel in the heart of Canggu”
    Amazing hotel for a shot term stay. The rooms are decorated in a beautiful, bohemian ethno chic with amazing amenities. Loved the music & art concept as well as the unique roof terrace bar too! Only downfall is the fact that there is no common pool accessible to guests who didn't book the pool suites. With that being said, it's super close to the beach and the Lawn if you wanted to take a dip :)

    Really great place accommodation wise. The only thing that let it down was that service downstairs in restaurant very slow which was frustrating, it was hard to even get acknowledged when you arrived, and when you got up to ask for a menu from the staff they would look like you were interrupting them form their other daily work tasks, but I'm just used to customer service taking priority over back end tasks. Otherwise amazing place

    One of the best hotel experiences, anywhere.”
    The Slow is such a good value for the money— yes, it's more expensive than most places in Canggu but a better quality than most fancy hotels in other countries. The hotel is minimal, well-designed, has kind of a California-vibe, amazing food, and the staff were AMAZING and so friendly and kind.

    The BEST Hotel in Canggu ”
    My fiancee and I had an absolute amazing time at the Slow. First of all, the rooms are like complete works of art when you walk into them. Everything from the furniture to the art to even the minbar have personality that we absolutely loved. In all of our years of travel, the room at the Slow was literally the BEST. Second of all, the food and cocktails they serve in their restaurant was the best we had in all of Bali. Definitely recommend the beef, the colonel fried sanders and kale salad. As for drinks we loved the Rice Goddess. Lastly, the service was just impeccable. Everyone knew our name and treated us like we were one of their own. I even got sick on one of the days and their own staff kept on checking on me (as well as sending me ginger tea) to make sure I recovered. We just loved our stay here and will stay again when we come to Canggu. Love, Dan and Linda

    Some pros and cons”
    For the amount that we’re paying, it comes with some expectation: - clean place, and yet I found hairs in the sofa when first checked in - facilities like maybe pool and gym, but nothing, in fact they did not announce if we could enjoy a special discount in some yoga places in the neighbourhood - anything special that makes the stay memorable, so far nothing The place is nicely designed, with a sustainable principle in mind. I do love many things in it, but it did not make my trip memorable in any way. So..am so sorry that nothing strikes as special there, especially for the price I paid for.

    This was a wonderful spot for us to take it slow, before our reintroduction to the daily grind. The room was magnificent, and being able to join the fun at the bar and pop up gallery space was a treat :) Was a bit rowdy on the Friday night but we can’t complain since we joined in the fun. We’ll be back in the least creepiest way possible!

    modernism nested by the sea”
    It's no wonder The Slow has been nominated for multiple awards. The hotel is very well designed with a modern minimalistic feel using wood to create warmth within it's concrete rooms. The decor is of 1970's rock era with post modernism furniture all done very tastefully. The food and service was exceptional and it's worth just visiting for the food itself.

    The slow is a small hotel a contemporary space designed as a modern hotel located not far from the beach in Canggu. It is seen as a cool hotel modern and hip. The hotel rooms are large creating a sense as if one is in a large apartment rather than in a hotel room. Beautifully decorated with a touch of elegance. I loved the architecture. Polished concrete floors. The concept of the hotel is not for everyone. I was travelling with a friend and her partner they chose to stay near by in a villa called the Theanna with a swimming pool they loved it. My friend’s felt the slow was to cold lacked warmth personality with no sense of traditional Balinese feel to it. The location is popular amongst surfers. The staff where extremely helpful kind and wanting to be of any assistance that they could. I did sometimes find this a little confronting, as I am a very private person. The rooms were spotless. I loved it

    Great retro hotel not far from the beach.”
    Located on the road heading to Old mans surf point. Ideal location with plenty of restaurants nearby. Our room was spacious with polished concrete floor and a timber ceiling. Lucky enough to have one of the rooms with an outside pool which was a great reward after being out all day. The only issue was that we had the room with no sun on the pool. Apart from that we had no issues at all with the hotel

    Great place. Great food. Great design”
    A great place for a couple. We have children 8/4/1 and wouldn’t take them here to stay. Great place to stay a couple of nights to relax. No communal pool was a bit of a bummer and the dog barking at night can be a little disruptive. If you’re wanting a relaxing, quiet place this isn’t the spot for it. We stayed here a couple of nights to hang in the city and then headed to relax and have downtime at The Bvlgari for a couple of nights. The mix of the two is perfect.

    NEVER AGAIN -The Slow took my booking, any my money, but delivered no room ... ”
    I prepaid for 2 nights at The Slow (which looked very nice) in Canggu for a surf weekend. After a long flight and the grueling Bali traffic we arrived. There "Firman", the GM, and "Ivan Kristian", the Stay Curator Manager, pull me aside and say, "we're very sorry, but we don't have a room for you. " I've been traveling for 30 years -- this has really never happened. They tried to send me to a crappy villa further away from the beach with no food and no services. I had to get argumentative before they got me a room at a hotel down the street, which they did. That was Jul 27-29. It's Aug 2, i've received no email, no apology, no communication from these guys whatsoever -- i'm assuming they don't want anyone from HK to show up there for a surf weekend. Do yourself a favor -- avoid this place as a hotel, even if you do drop in to enjoy the food. Wish i could assign zero stars -- because that's what they deserved -- thanks for nothing The Slow.

    Pros - small hotel with only 12 rooms. Extremely well decorated with paintings and photographs in the walls. Staff are excellent and extremely polite. Located about 300m from bath balong beach. Cons - it's a popular hotel and has a fantastic dining restaurant so it does get a little noisy with general noise from the restaurant until about midnight. I don't mind the noise but if you do, this will be a noisy hotel for you. Overall impression is phenomenal. Loved it

    Too noisy ”
    Whilst there are loads of positives to say about the Slow, the negatives of our stay mean we wouldn’t recommend nor stay again. Our room on first floor was huge and beautifully decorated. No outdoor access (balcony/terrace) made the space seem wasted, and drying clothes /swimwear difficult with no air. Perhaps a room with a pool would have been better, though none were available for our stay. Although on the first floor and towards the back of the hotel, the noise in our room was ridiculously loud with lots of noise and dogs barking all throughout the night. To contact staff, we had to do this through WhatsApp. Found this a pain when a quick phone call would have been easier. Overall, staff were nice however due to the noise of the room, it wasn’t the relaxing stay we envisaged.
