Our favourite rooms
Lagoon Pool Residences have direct access to that giant lagoon pool, so you can swim to and from your bedroom. The Uma Pool Residences offer a little more seclusion, and come with their own 10-metre private pool.
The massive lagoon pool is shared between three of the five main buildings; there’s also a tempting al fresco pool at the Beach Club. (Both are family-friendly; one is supervised by a lifeguard.)
The Como hotel group is world-famous for its spas – and Como Uma Canggu’s temple to wellness doesn’t let the side down. Expect eight treatment rooms and a dizzying choice of treatments.
Bring your best bikinis, beach shorts and beach hair.
Como Uma Canggu has a dedicated disabled-access room with an extra-spacious bathroom adapted for wheelchair-users; this room is accessible by lift.
Little Smiths will love it here. Babysitting can be arranged with two hours’ notice; all of the Residences have a kitchenette, making them ideal for families.
