Buri Rasa offers an element of tranquility and sophistication amid an otherwise chaotic Chaweng.
Ochre-coloured villas with aged wooden carved doors are set in tropical gardens, with dedicated quiet zones around massage salas. Common areas such as the large library room, bar and restaurant have features like black and white photos, huge wooden and brass ceiling fans and whitewashed walls and shutters, creating a colonial feel with old world charm. Accommodation varies in size and price, but all rooms are tastefully furnished with attention to detail, and boast all the amenities one would expect from a resort of this calibre. The spacious open-air bathrooms feel like private spas, with huge rain showers, bathrobes, super-sized fluffy white towels, luxurious body products and natural elements. A black swimming pool is set in a lawned area bordering a good stretch of Chaweng's beach, and is serviced by the beach bar.
