Sometimes you just need an adventure to cleanse the bitter taste of life from your soul. I’ve been sneaking as much as travel time as possible before my university and the real world takes over my life.
La Laguna Bali in Canggu is a tapas bar and restaurant on the secluded, northernmost end of Seminyak, which draws a steady flow of patrons, particularly at sunset time, to its heavily ornamented gardens and a 30m log bridge over a lagoon that leads to the dark sands bordering Berawa and Batubelig. The spot is among the few in Bali that presents a gypsy and boho-chic vibe, with floral spaces and semi-cobbled paths lined with quirky props and bohemian décor in contrasting shades and motifs.
Lovers of things vintage and antique will enjoy all the eye candy La Laguna Bali offers, from the venue’s ornate wooden caravans in its gardens, collection of birds and animals in pens, to the interior seating around its bar with carved wall panels, cushioned metal chairs and multi-coloured furniture. Other alfresco seating options include round patchwork cushions over a lawn and by the lagoon with the bridge in the foreground against rolling surf, while indoor spaces are more subtle.
good times and good friends, all I’ve ever wanted.
