Bali is an island paradise. One of the most popular activities for travelers to enjoy is to soak up the sublime sunsets while enjoying a cocktail or three. If you’re planning a trip to Bali, Indonesia and are wondering where the best places are to enjoy an early-evening sun-downer, our Travel Specialist Andhika has shared his ‘Top 3 Bali Beach Bars’.
Finn’s Beach Club at Semara Luxury Villa Resort, Uluwatu
With just seven five-bedroom villas spread over 7.5 hectares of idyllic, manicured gardens, Semara Luxury Villa Resort in Uluwatu is for the select few. Thankfully, access to Finn’s Beach Club is available on a daily basis, allowing you to enjoy the absolute serenity of the exclusive private beach – accessible only by inclinator which transports guests down the sheer limestone cliff face overlooking the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean.
Rock Bar at Ayana Resort and Spa, Jimbaran Bay
OK – pedantically speaking, Rock Bar isn’t a beach bar. As the name suggests, the bar is set on the rocks. To be precise, Rock Bar rests 14-meters above the rocks, ocean and sand of a private beach at the 77-acre Ayana Resort & Spa Bali. With uninterrupted views of the ocean, the glamorous bar is renowned for its outstanding sunset views and delightful – if a tad expensive – cocktails and spirits ‘on the rocks’.
Ku De Ta Bar & Restaurant, Seminyak
A lavish, opulent bar, Ku De Ta Bar has been known for being ‘the’ place to be seen by the Bali elite for the last 13 years since opening in the year 2000. With a terrace that stretches out to touch the sand, Ku De Ta offers a dreamy destination to enjoy drinks at dusk with giant daybeds with comfy, plush cushions to relax and absorb the fabulous sunset.
