The Rock Bar Ayana Bali is located along the 1.3 kilometer coastline of AYANA Resort and Spa Bali, a 77-hectare property that features 78 private luxury villas and a 290-room hotel. It is it known as one of the world best bar’s.
Descent to the bar is via an inclinator that traverses the cliff-face, giving you a bird’s eye view before you officially arrive to take your seat for the dazzling ‘aquatic fireworks’, a result of crashing waves coming off a 100m-long coral reef at high tide. Either side of the main rock extending along the beach, wooden deck areas provide additional viewing points, one of which is accessed via a natural cave.
Signature cocktails designed by international bar consultant Sebastien Bonnefoi use only the highest-quality imported liquors blended with local fruits, herbs and spices to complement the natural setting. The entertainment line-up is just as inspiring. Live bands provide magical acoustic performances from their open-air stage amongst the rocks; gigs have included Third Eye Blind, Indonesia’s own Superman Is Dead, and grassroots acts from Australia and the USA. Resident music director Martin East leads a stellar DJ line-up spinning Balaeric, Nu-Disco, Deep House, and Chill Out beats every sunset and late-nights on weekends. Guest DJs have included Indonesia’s #1 DJ/producer, Riri Mestica, as well as international names like Andy Caldwell and Bruno From Ibiza.
ROCK STAR TIPS: Sunset is the busiest time and there is often a queue at the inclinator; in-house guests of AYANA enjoy VIP service with priority access to skip the queue. Night-time is just as magical but in a more intimate, sensual way, with twinkling stars above, spot-lit ocean and cooler night air. A dress code applies, requiring smart attire. No singlets or boardshorts, and no alcohol-branded attire are permitted.
