Luna2 Studios, Bali

Named after the first spacecraft to land on the moon in 1959, this Modernist-style 'studiotel' on the west coast of Bali is fittingly cosmic.

In a refreshing departure from the traditional thatched villas and muted tones that abound elsewhere on the island, here stark white surfaces and geometric shapes offer a dazzingly retro vision of the future, while vivid primary-colour pops jostle for attention. Nods to Dutch artist Piet Mondrian feature throughout, and in the 14 studios - each featuring three TVs, an iPad and iPod dock - the palette of black and grey is invigorated by flourishes of bold accent colour, with sophisticated walnut finishes.

Spend your days luxuriating by the multicoloured pool, with its underwater sound system, or enjoy a popcorn-flavoured cocktail and movie in the 16-seat Lunaplex. At night, feast on inventive dishes such as truffled chicken with fiddlehead fern tips, purslane and candyfloss foam in the cheering yellow-painted Orbit restaurant, then descend the spiral staircase to the more understated Pop! bar, where you can revel into the small hours. Soothe sore heads the morning after with a reviving spa treatment or yoga session. – Alix O’Neill

Looks luxurious, but it also looks as if it could be anywhere in the tropics -- doesn't it miss the richness of the culture of Bali?

You know i agree with the other three commentors. i have been to Bali
twice once we stayed at a Ramada but it was done in the Balinese Theme.
The next time in Ubud we stayed in a little Bainese Villa next to a rice
field. Luna2 is nice but it is something you might find outside of the
Art Deco District of South Beach, Fl.
