TT Beach Club
Experience TT Beach Club at its Best – TT Beach Club consistently proves its position as ‘The Best Beach Club in Bali’. With the charm of Melasti Beach, on the cool southern shores of Bali, and the shimmer of white sands, TT Beach Club also presents the marvel of a soaring infinity pool. This pool sets the stage for TT Beach Club’s series of spectacular ‘Legendary Pool Parties’, every Friday through to Sunday. These are: “Sea and She” every Friday, with “Fluorescent” shining every Saturday, and the “Saxofoam” party bubbles away every Sunday.
In addition TT Beach Club welcomes you to “Sandikala Majestic”, held each and every Thursday. As the sun goes down Balinese artists perform traditional dances as an incredible addition to your experience of their TT Beach Club Sunset Sessions!
Another item of pride in the TT stable is the selection of TT Beach Club’s signature cocktails. Pisang Rai and Smoke Rosemary Hibiscus are must-try cocktails, only available at the TT Beach Club. And to spoil your taste buds the Bifuteki Wagyu comes highly recommended, all served by a gracious TT Team member. The beauty of Melasti Beach with the best signature cocktails and excellent food, alongside exciting pool parties and first class hospitality, will complete your best beach club experience in Bali!
Le Club 22 at Karma Kandara
The amount of cocktail havens hosted by the illustrious Karma Kandara continues to grow, with the Uluwatu-based resort hosting a trio of vibrant new bars for its guests. The popular Bukit Peninsula getaway recently welcomed the beachside haunt, Le Club 22, an elevated drinks and dining space with views out over the reefs below. But even more recently, it has also added to its collection of drinking dens twice over, with a duo of new bars based on the white sands of Uluwatu.
On the waterfront sits the Tiki Bar, this casual establishment has been crafted in honour of Bali’s famous beach barbecues. This is not your traditional waterside affair, but a more refined take the traditional BBQ, where the bar may be built in typical Balinese style right on the water’s edge. But here at Tiki, the curated collection of cocktails and snacks is anything but traditional. Picture all-day dining cooked using the handcrafted Komodo Kamado Grill on site, plating up dishes like wood-fired pizzas, and rock lobster rica rica. Partner your lunch with an array of Indonesian-inspired cocktails like the Puka Colada (dark rum, spiced rum, pandan syrup, coconut cream, cinnamon, orange pineapple, Angostura bitters) and don’t forget to taste the Karma Spritz (Aperol, blood orange, soda and sparkling wine).
And soon, Karma Beach Bali will also welcome the Phoenix Bar. Named in ode to a ‘rising from the ashes’ this new haunt will feature mixologist collaborations and host a rotating line-up of DJs to be enjoyed all week long.
