I was blown away by the voyager. Stayed for 8 days in December and am already hoping to return in June.
First, why Canggu? It's on a great surf beach but enough west of swanky semiyak and touristy kuta to be relaxing. Rice paddies next door, cows in street, mix of local and western spots for food. Easy to get to the bigger towns by scooter.
Now, the place! Voyager has 5 guest suites and each one is beautifully designed and furnished. Very high thatch ceilings with fans, dark wood floors, bamboo ladders, spacious rooms, outdoor showers and tubs give it a Bali feel while elegant furnishings and linens, contemporary art and one-way mirrored glass walls that let you see out to the property are a nod to don's architectural accomplishments around the globe and justin's impeccable sense of design.
The property is neatly organized around a central, communal outdoor living space that includes a gorgeous contemporary pool, a few different areas for lounging or chatting and an open air kitchen and dining area where you can take breakfast. This would be an awesome place to rent out if you were planning a trip with 5 couples or a larger group of friends and in that case, you'd consider hiring a local cook for some of the meals.
Its a short walk to the beach and a short bike ride to surfing. Great spot for coffee that is also a walk away is Deus ex Machina which is awesome and hard to describe - I can't wait for their opening in Los Angeles / Venice Beach this month. For surfing, hire a local guide / driver or if you prefer more instruction, the chillhouse is nearby and very well organized - they will pick up folks from the voyager in the morning to join their excursions.
