Alternative Beach is the hottest new concept in the Gu; located in the prime spot on the famous Batu Bolong street. It features a restaurant area, a pool with a pool bar, private rooms under the name of Canggu Village Accommodation and the Kosone Hostel.
All rooms have a balcony overlooking the pool and the rice fields. Each bed comes with a private reading light, safe-box and a charger plug. Besides for chilling in the restaurant area downstairs, you can relax on the sofas and hanging chairs on each floor. But with a pool like that, we doubt you’ll send any time out of the water. There is a water-slide from the third floor of the hostel – so you can quite literally slide from your bed right into the pool. There are also a jumping deck, a swing and lots of big, colourful floating pillows for the best pool tanning sessions.
The buffet breakfast is provided every morning or you can enjoy the food in the restaurant area. Including the food, everything around this hostel is super Instagrammable – so bring you friends, jump on those pink floating pillows, take some cool photos, tag us #guguide and the usual ones #balilife #vacayforever #neverleaving and enjoy a pina colada (or three). Oh, yeah, did we forget to mention there are two rooftop hot tubs? Score!
The next best thing about Kosone is it location – it is positioned in the middle of all the Gu hotspots and things happening. Shopping? Love Anchor, Sensatia Botanicals, Wanderlust Swim, Lost in Paradise. They are all just down the road. Hungry? Motion Cafe, In the RAW, Mason, Fishbone Local. We got you! Drinks? Deus, Luigi’s (don’t forget to claim your free cocktail with the Gu Guide app), Lacalita for some mean margaritas, Pablo’s. We could go on and on, but the reality is, you probably won’t even want to leave the pool at Kosone. Have an amazing stay, Gu crew!
