Meet me at the Corduroy

Secluded on a riverbank just moments from famous Echo Beach Canggu, Corduroy pushes pause on the fast pace of life, bringing people together in an intimate, eclectic environment. A former surf lodge creatively reimagined by designer Ozlem Esen, this 9 room boutique hotel references the traditional character of Bali with nods to ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll nights and dreamy Mediterranean days.

Each room is individually adorned with a curated collection of vintage and custom-designed furniture, artworks and books, with river views infusing a sense of sanctuary and calm. Most suites enjoy their own terraces for private relaxation and soaking up the Bali sun.

Unwind in Corduroy’s sublime courtyard garden, relax by the 25 meter emerald pool, mix a cocktail in the alfresco lounge or host dinner on the long dining table under the stars among the mango trees. Immerse yourself in the laidback luxury of Corduroy, a feast for the senses that reframes old-world Bali through a unique designer lens, sheltered yet just moments from the buzz of Canggu.

Ozlem Esen, Owner & Creative Director

“With Corduroy, my ambition was to design a boutique hotel in a league of its own by curating aesthetic and sonic experiences appealing to creatives of all kinds. Visual poetry was the aim – creating spaces like a sculpture, playing on light and shadow, mirroring the light and dark sides of life.

Corduroy draws elements from my background in fashion, music, interiors and art. Every corner tells the story of my past, my family and all my life experiences, from growing up in Sydney and Istanbul to following my heart to Bali and all my travels in between. The vision was to craft a sanctuary like nothing before seen in Bali, with little pockets of artworks, antiques, photos, books and flowers creating interesting vignettes at every turn.

This place is so close to my heart it feels like the mango trees echo my ancestors’ voices and they somehow led me here. It’s not just a hotel – it’s an experience of senses, colours, sounds and stories. No room or wall is the same, making for a visual explosion that I’m excited for all to discover.”
