Bali’s freshest new beach club opens this weekend!

The team behind Motel Mexicola and Bondi’s Bucket List are serving up Bali’s hippest new venue with the opening of Tropicola this weekend.

The new beach club is being hailed as the perfect spot for “lazy days and fun, balmy nights.” and is situated in a mansion on Seminyak beach set to invoke nostalgia from another era. DSC00173

It’s an 80’s leaning pool club with clean lines, bright colours, cascading plants and an amphitheater shaded towards the beach that showcases views of the ‘golden mile” of Seminyak beach (and beyond) from every vantage point.

Think Miami, Acapulco, Palm Springs, Tulum and Playa Del Carmen woven into a drink and dine beach club unique to Bali.

The team enlisted their good friend James Brown (who designed both Mexicola, Africola and Bucket List in Bondi) to take reference from the team’s travels and create something uniquely their own.

As creative director of the project, his vision was to create an oasis laden with Bougainvillea where you can shade from the Bali sun and watch it work its natural charms over the sea while the gentle smoke of shellfish on the wood fired grill wafts over the turquoise pool and the staff, in crisp red and white, chase back and forth with trays of drinks – a paradise by the sea.

Tropicola Beach Club features three bars that sprawl over multiple levels surrounding two pools. Beverage director, Denny Deluca Del Paso has delivered an inspired drinks list showcasing the breadth of his travels and expertise.

In 2012 he won the coveted World Fair Bartending Tour and has traveled the world performing in master classes and trade shows, balancing the art of entertainment and balanced, good looking drinks.

Not to mention the open kitchen, operated by British born Chef Steve Skelly who is responsible for the award-winning food at Mexicola, Da Maria and Luigi’s Hot Pizza.
