December grand opening for Bali’s Ulu Cliffhouse
Ulu Cliffhouse, the 5000-square-metre clifftop playground nestled in Uluwatu, Bali, is set to have its grand opening on Saturday 2 December 2017 with its unparalleled ocean views, coastal-inspired kitchen creations, and imaginative tropical cocktails.
The Bukit clifftop playground showcases a 25-metre infinity pool, a music recording studio, an art space and food and drinks, from the open-air restaurant to the cliffside rock bar hanging over the waves. Tipping its hat to the surfers’ paradise location in Uluwatu, Ulu Cliffhouse also features a resident surfboard shaper.
Commanding jaw-dropping views of the ocean, Ulu Cliffhouse is set to be home to Bali’s creative crowd, as well as being a space for wanderlusters to unwind or let loose. Designed by Shed London and Bali’s Design Assembly, the beach club draws on the 1950s Palm Springs aesthetic, enhancing its raw environment with modern edges, effortless chic and youthful cheek.
Headed by Peruvian chef Diego Muñoz, who led Astrid & Gaston to #14 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List and now free-rider chef, Ulu Cliffhouse’s culinary offering goes beyond the typical beach club menu by incorporating the influence of Diego’s travels around the world and Bali’s local environment at the same time.
The fresh, fun and locally sourced offerings reflect Diego’s ability to integrate culturally diverse flavours, resulting in a menu that includes a raw bar showcasing his personal take on ceviches, tiraditos and an array of other culinary delights.
The restaurant and the bar, with a capacity of 80 and 100 respectively, house timber and rattan pavilions that provide a soft dappled shade, offering tiered dining with a no-filter-necessary view of the Indian Ocean. Against the backdrop of handcrafted furniture layered with bold tropical prints and pastel hues, guests can opt to unwind over Ulu Cliffhouse’s delicious menu with two cantilevered terraces that flank the cliff edge with shaded deep sun loungers.
Besides offering its own recording studio, Ulu Cliffhouse will also be home to a rotating art space and lifestyle boutique.
Ulu Cliffhouse is created and developed by F&B entrepreneurs – Out & Out Hospitality whose operations span Singapore (Operation Dagger, Oxwell & Co) and Bali (KILN on Petitenget and the new Mandala House).
