Capella, Bali

Bill Bensley has let his imagination run riot once more at this glamping site in Bali. Inspired by a 19th-century expedition, this grand tour has settled in Ubud. Take the suspension bridge to the Capella camp to discover, brass monkeys crawling across rooftops, a restaurant serving up Balinese black pork and stories and movies around the campfire.
