Tented Treat

Commune with nature in the Bill Bensley-designed tented accommodations at Capella Ubud. Built along the principle of ‘minimal intervention’, natural flora was protected during construction of the property, and trees were thoughtfully incorporated in the design. Harvests from the organic garden located in the compounds find their way into the camp’s menu.

Quick Finnish

Only a few hours to spend in Finland? A short walk from Helsinki city center will take you to the Löyly Design Sauna where you can decompress in a series of hot steam and cold plunges in an incredibly designed space. Another place to visit is the Allas Sea Pool, a new spa complex by the Baltic Sea. You won’t have to travel far to sample Finland’s design culture: Flag-carrier Finnair has Iittala tableware and Marimekko amenity kits that you can keep as souvenirs.
