Launched on 15 June 2017, AYANA invites guests to step back to a more rustic time in Bali’s legendary holiday lifestyle, with the opening of its new 1960s Kuta-styled beach club.
Located on one of Bali’s last remaining hidden white sand beach coves and accessible via AYANA’s 90-hectare estate, Kubu Beach Club’s setting showcases aquamarine waters, dramatic limestone cliffs and intrinsic Balinese architecture inspired by island elements such as shell, wood, bamboo, stone and traditional rooftops made with lontar leafs, similar to the island’s classic palm leaf. The traditional wooden bar is surrounded by memorabilia, while the dried-corn, coconut baskets and sea shells create light-hearted décor.
No good beach club is complete without obligatory sun loungers, and Kubu Beach Club goes one step further by offering guests ocean-facing cabanas and day beds. These spots are the ultimate place to soak up the sun, relax with a cocktail or enjoy a Kuta style massage using natural coconut oil. Guests can also enjoy hair-braiding services or get a temporary tattoo.
Designed to be a main attraction for beachfront relaxing and dining, Kubu Beach Club is available exclusively to in house guests of AYANA Resort and Spa BALI, RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA and The Villas at AYANA. Come dusk, guests will be thrilled by the jaw dropping sunset views on the horizon.
To accompany the traditional design, the kitchen serves up a range of international dishes and local comfort food. Menu items range from hearty favourites such as snapper ceviche and charcoal bun cheese burger, to traditional Balinese dishes including signature rice plates. Guests will also be tempted by the local favourites including Rujak Gula – seasonal fruits marinated with palm sugar and tamarind, and Bakso balung – an oxtail beef meatball soup. The drinks selection includes beers, fresh coconut water and vintage Balinese Tiki cocktails and classic Arak-based cocktails.
Thanks to AYANA’s innovative cliffside inclinator, guests can choose to swap the invigorating 197-step journey for a quick 35-second ride up and down AYANA’s cliff front terrain.
Kubu Beach Club is open every day, except Nyepi, from 9am to 7pm, with lunch service starting at 11am. Welcoming up to 80 guests, Kubu Beach Club is the perfect addition to AYANA’s already impressive facilities.
