Menjangan Dynasty Resort is proud to present its signature Pasir Putih Beach Club & Bar, welcoming walk-in visitors as well as guests of the tented resort at Banyuwedang Bay in North West Bali.
Echoing the sustainable architecture of the Resort’s impressive communal structures, the Beach Club’s restaurant & bar is housed within an open-sided bamboo edifice. Here, a striking framework of bamboo columns and beams creates an interesting play of vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines, which twist, intensify and surprise under the organic curves of the soaring ‘alang-alang’ grass roof. Furnishings also showcase the natural aesthetic beauty of bamboo, introducing hanging lanterns, bamboo chairs and blonde-wood tables with a distressed-antique finish. This simple rustic style has been carefully chosen to ensure that nothing detracts from the spectacular vista of mountains, mangroves, the gentle waters of the bay and Pasir Putih ‘white sand’ Beach.
The casual barefoot elegance spills out on to the sand, offering shady retreats in the form of cosy bamboo cabanas and sun-splashed beanbags on the beach, complemented by ambient music and a blissful, carefree vibe. Adjacent to the bar is a 32.5-square-metre beachside swimming pool fed by an ornamental waterfall. Guests can also enjoy swimming in the calm turquoise sea or have fun kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding, using the facilities of the on-site water sports centre.
Offering all-day dining, the restaurant and its open kitchen features a tempting à la carte menu of Western and Asian cuisine. Beachside delights include salads, soups, design-your-own pasta dishes, grilled chicken, beef tenderloin and classics such as sweet and sour fish, nasi goreng, assorted satay, beef rendang and pad thai. Delicious desserts include a passionfruit and lime crème brûlée. Furthermore, a daily ‘specials’ board enables the chefs to take advantage of the seasonal, fresh local produce, which is purchased in accordance with harvest and market availability.
The easygoing, seaside spirit of Pasir Putih is exemplified with a Beach Club menu of ‘Tapas to Share’ promoting tasty bites such as tiger prawn skewers, barbecue chicken wings, bruschetta, calamari ‘chipirons’, crispy mushrooms, spring rolls and more. A comprehensive drinks list offers fresh juices and detox juice blends, imported spirits, wines by the glass, mocktails and innovatively named cocktails such as ‘Pasir Putih Cobbler’, ‘Menjangan Dynasty Margarita’ and ‘Prince of Pasir Putih’, all of which are served with a smile by a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ team of safari-suited staff.
During the balmy Bali evenings, Pasir Putih takes on a serene persona, enhanced by starlit skies, the warm glow of candles in the sand, the nocturnal sounds of nature and the murmur of the waves. Personalised romantic dinners are a specialty of the Resort, relished by couples and honeymooners who are invited to dine wherever they wish: under the tamarind trees, perhaps, or right beside the water’s edge for an intimate toes-in-the sand experience.
