ABOUT US

A goals-worthy squad of Gu girls tripping around Canggu, frozen margarita in one hand, iphone in the other, snapping our daily Gu adventures.

When we're not busily rove reporting about cars tipped off the shortcut, we are enjoying gold leaf facials at Goldust, testing just how cold the Bintangs are at Old Man's or having ATM wars with one very aggressive white goose.. and so is life in the Gu!

New to Canggu? Let us help you find the cushiest villa, locate a dreamy sunset spot, or where to grab a new Gu wardrobe to fit in with the hip crowd at Crate. We got you.

Call Canggu your home? Luckyyyy!
Stay tuned to our Facebook & Instagram feeds to keep up with all our best local tips, or discover new businesses with us using the GUIDE section of our website.

MEET THE SQUAD..

Lani

Editor
Lani is an ex-Real Estate agent who has discovered that life does indeed exist beyond the borders of Sydney's Northern Beaches. (inside joke)
After spending a decade contorting her poor toes into squished mutant shapes, she decided she would kick off her heels in search of any job that had her walking the streets barefoot.
Fast forward four years and she has her feet firmly planted on the ground in Canggu.

She now finds herself somewhat of a crazy cat lady, with tiny orphans crossing her path more often than her little heart can bare. Lani, her famous Bengal tiger-leopard-cat, her bazillion fur foster babies and her one Indonesian Bae are living happily ever after in Pererenan - where she spends her AMs scooting around to live report on everything that's going down in the Gu, and her PMs sharing it all to Gu Guide - shaking kittens off her arms as she types.

This is a girl of balance.
Balancing beers with box fit classes, stress with surf sessions, margaritas with mindfulness,
cakes with kundalini yoga.. And so is life in Canggu.

It was hard work that had her earn her title as GUru of the GU - she's road-tested every pussy accupressure & steaming treatment known to Canggu, she's tasted every cocktail, she's crashed a segway riding through the rice fields.. Nothing is sacred or secret to miss Lani.

Keep up with the Cangg-ashians, with the help of this lady in the know.

Amber

Business Development Manager
After almost 4 years of grinding in the West Australian Pilbra region, living in steel capped boots, high vis uniform and stinky hard hats whilst battling the red dirt dusty storm she decided to trade it all in for the flip flop, sundress and salty air lifestyle.
This spiritual-ass gangsta is now all about the Island problem life. She weaves, she dodges, she frolics and in her down time she participates in pool side tanning and Deus happy hours.

Years ago Amber discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down.. so now she finds herself in Canggu and like most people, hasn't left.

Amber has mastered the art of connection and thats what makes her the best person, on the Island, for the role of Business Development Manager.

Wanna collab with the Gu girls? You've gotta go through Amber first. She's the Gu Guide door b***h of sorts, hunting out the best brands for insta collabs, the hottest bars for our sunset sessions and the best tables for our dinner reviews. If you have a Canggu business, Amber is the girl you want on your WhatsApp faves list.

Molly

Social Media Coordinator
Constantly chasing the tropics, sun-kissed skin and the perfect waves, it only seemed natural that Molly found her way to Bali, and instantly fell in love with the crazy, sexy, cool.. Canggu.

A serendipitous meeting with the Gu's guru Lani resulted in Molly becoming the latest gal to join the Gu Guide squad (yep dreams do come true!) #blessed.

With a fair chunk of her life already dedicated to running Instagram profiles, working in the fashion industry and studying graphic design, she's been recruited to seriously stylise the Gu Guide aesthetics and help us to level up our look.

Joey

Blog feature writer
Don't expect too much yoga and vegan raw cakes from this saucy Swede.. Joey is our dirty blonde, our good time gal, lover of a sexy cocktail in the hippest Canggu hotspots.

When she's not island-hopping with her hunky Aussie surfer boy, you'll find J designing and producing for their own clothing label (#canggustereotypes) no but really.. living that good Gu life.

She's probably been here the longest out of all the Gu girls, and so has done her research. She knows whats HOT vs what's really NOT and isn't afraid to dish all her (dirty) Joey secrets..

This babelicious insider will be taking you guys on a wild ride around Canggu, with some juicy food reviews and coverage of Canggu's best events. The Gu party girl has landed.

Hey – we are Laura & Hayley!

We’re best gal pals who recently coerced one another to quit our full-time corporate lives for a sea change. We’ve been in the Gu for here months and like most who make the jump here, we haven’t looked back.

Apart from being robbed, falling off a scooters in to cow poo and nursing 3 days hangovers, we finally feel like we’ve got our shit together! We’ve mastered getting across Gang Mango and the Canggu Shortcut, avoided a drop in on the Pretty Poison skate bowl, drunk and head first (can’t say we have avoided Sand Bar at 4AM – yes, we’ve seen you there too) and we’ve now got iron stomachs after a few bouts of Bali belly so we can finally eat what we’ve never dared to before.
Yes, the salty life is treating us just fine.

We came here like many others to manufacture some clothing (don’t worry, it’s not swimwear) yet we’ve been distracted by eating and drinking our way through the smorgasbord of warungs, bungkus, cafes and fine dining establishments.

You can find us helping out on the Gu Guide, bringing you our Melbourne perspective of eating, drinking, dining, shopping, sunsetting, gymming, tanning and laundrying all over Canggu .
