Bali’s top resort takes dining to the sea

Hannah Edensor

Ocean bars don’t get much better than this, with AYANA Resort and Spa Bali taking its luxe levels up a notch.

In response to the continued international demand for Rock Bar’s sunset views and cheeky cocktails, the venue has launched a whole new stack of seating areas and decks to accommodate up to 650 guests.

Located 14 metres above the Indian Ocean at the base of Jimbaran Bay’s towering cliffs, the expansion added nine new decks to the original footprint, the dramatic design capitalising on Rock Bar’s  natural rock formations and unobstructed ocean views.

Accessible via an over-the-water bridge, the newly elevated Round Deck is located mere steps from Rock Bar’s original glass bar, yet feels like a private island getaway.

The award-winning AYANA Resort and Spa Bali is a world-class destination resort located on 90 hectares of cliff-top land just ten kilometres from Bali airport.

Presenting a truly exclusive oceanfront destination, the new circular venue offers premier seating for up to 18 privileged guests, complemented by 240-degree panoramic views.

Noted as one of ‘30 of the World’s Best Hotel Bars’ by CNN, Rock Bar epitomises AYANA’s cosmopolitan chic lifestyle. In-house guests of AYANA Resort and Spa, The Villas at AYANA Resort and Spa and RIMBA Jimbaran Bali enjoy priority access to Rock Bar’s best sunset viewing spots, while visiting guests are invited to take the complimentary inclinator ride down to the open air venue.

In celebration of Rock Bar’s highly anticipated expansion, select suite and villa guests of AYANA and RIMBA will be treated to an invitation-only breakfast event during their stay.

Weather permitting, ‘Breakfast by the Sea’ will add a new dimension to Rock Bar’s A-list reputation, showcasing a contemporary culinary concept that invites guests to celebrate life to the fullest with a gourmet international or Balinese breakfast, AYANA’s legendary hospitality and one of Bali’s most awe-inspiring oceanfront vistas.

Check out these snaps of the gorgeous Rock Bar offerings. Wish you were there?
