For the Gentleman: Sartorial Pleasures in Bali

in Destinations/Shops by

Who said shopping in Bali was just for the ladies? Gentlemen, drop everything and discover sartorial pleasures on the island. It may not be Milan, but trust us—there’s a lot of style on the island.

Here’s our concierge-curated list featuring the best of the best when it comes to shopping for men.



Bali-born menswear brand Tropikal is putting its own unique stamp on style-savvy, travel-friendly beach-casual dressing. They got started in the most practical manner, when its founder couldn’t find high-quality and eco-friendly shirts that lasted more than a few washes. Moreover, they were uncomfortable and grated the skin. The idea of using premium organic bamboo fabric surfaced, and the brand hasn’t looked back since. Naturally eco-friendly, wonderful to wear, resilient, superbly soft and healthy for even the most sensitive skin. “Tropikal is fully committed to being environmentally friendly and support ethical fashion production. We are passionate about our environment and the people who live in it. That’s why we feel our customers deserve to know where their clothes come from, how they’re made and who is making them.” says the founder. “Our products are expertly designed for hot summer & tropical weather – with more comfort, heat regulation and breathability than anything else on the market.”

Signature prints, sustainable natural materials, and clever craftsmanship are the calling cards of this newcomer label. Transparency is key for the brand, which brings together Balinese artists and screen printers to make its Balinese-icon-inspired designs. Tropikal Clothing can be found in selected boutiques in Bali and Lombok, or you can shop and browse their collection online here.


Mr. Ripley

Influenced by the Italian Riviera where its namesake film was set, Mr. Ripley launched this year with a 30-piece collection and a wide colour palette including white, navy, bottle green, melon, jade green and denim. The cut aims to transition from Bali to Rome via NYC, without missing a beat.

From Clothing Store

Find a neat collection of quality cotton T-shirts by the label Atlas. The limited colour range works with everything from shorts or jeans, and even chinos. Think black and white, stone grey, steel blue and a few different types of stripes.

By The Sea 

The famed Balinese fashion house By the Sea has a strong nautical theme for its resort-wear range created by owner/designer Renato Vianna.

A Perfect Day In Ubud

in Culture/Destinations/Dining/Recreation/Shops by

Wherever your villa is in Bali, do make sure you head for the hills and spend at least a day exploring Ubud. This once-sleepy village has grown into a bustling hub of activity since Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love film phenomenon almost a decade ago. Don’t wait for the annual Bali Spirit Festival, Ubud Food Festival and Ubud Writers Festival; you’ll reap rewards with every visit to the island’s acclaimed cultural, creative and spiritual heart. Just ask your villa manager or concierge to organise a car and driver for the day, and then leave bright and early to give yourself as much time as possible to explore at leisure. Here we share a few ideas for your itinerary.

Make your first stop the famed Monkey Forest on the southern edge of Ubud – home to hundreds of long-tailed Macaque monkeys who are as comfortable with selfies as they are cunning/cheeky with stealing bananas (which you can buy at the entrance). It’s a magical place to visit before the crowds descend, as you can soak up the mystical atmosphere of the 14th Century Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, one of three temples within the sanctuary.

From here, it’s a 15-minute stroll up Jalan Monkey Forest to Ubud Art Market – a popular stop for those seeking souvenirs. Small shops line this road, and if you’re feeling peckish, stop at Three Monkeys Café for a late breakfast overlooking a rare central-Ubud rice field – or make a beeline for Jalan Goutama for a huge choice of warungs and world cuisine.

Wander through the market marvelling at the kitsch, collectible and covetable, jostling with the tour group crowds and enjoying the Balinese stallholders banter. (While there, why not pick up a sarong and sash so you can be appropriately attired to allow temple visits during your trip – though you’ll be able to hire these at many of the more popular temples around the island). Then head across the street to the ornate Ubud Royal Palace; the front section is open to the public free of charge, and the traditional ankul ankul gate provides a splendid backdrop for family photos. Even more photogenic is the water garden of Pura Taman Saraswati with its carpet of lotus flowers.
