Bali’s Beach Clubs

Post Thumbnail

Bali’s beach clubs are world renowned and it’s not hard to understand why – tropical climes meet world famous DJs in decadent surrounds. The Indonesian island’s southern coastline is studded with chic spots serving cocktails in a beach side setting but there are spots for day time partying across the isle. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the very best of them so that you don’t need to waste a second sipping Piña coladas in sub par settings.

Karma Beach Club

Karma Beach Club is part of the lavish Karma Kandara hotel complex, situated on Bali’s Billionaire Row. However, you needn’t be rolling in money to enjoy this secluded patch of coastline – day guests can ride the cable car down the cliff front for the minimal entry fee of £38 (which comes inclusive of £20 worth of food and drink credit). The fact that the beach is accessed by cable car, and sits within a verdant cove, means that it feels like a private slice of paradise. The vibe is decidedly pared back. There aren’t the blaring beats of some of the bigger beach clubs, and the focus instead is on rest and relaxation. Make use of the complimentary snorkel gear and paddle board hire, and get into that sea! The waves are strong in some of Bali’s most popular resorts so being able to swim in calm seas here really is a treat.

Jungle Fish Bali

Jungle Fish Bali is a beach club without the beach. However, what it lacks in golden sands, it makes up for in jungle settings. Ubud was made famous in the book and film of the same name, Eat Pray Love in which Liz Gilbert attempts to find balance in the new life she’s carved out for herself. However, while the film shows lush rice paddies and tranquil surrounds, the resort has grown into a bustling haven for tourism. This means that visitors will want to carve out some relaxation for themselves, and this beachless beach club offers just that. Entry is cheap at £20, inclusive of £11.50’s worth of food and drink meaning that you don’t need to earn the big bucks to enjoy this special spot. Flop out on a lounger, take a dip in the Insta-famous infinity pool or indulge in a massage for total holiday bliss!

Potato Head Beach Club

Potato Head Beach Club boasts a carefully constructed laid back atmosphere, not similar to that of Glastonbury. We say carefully constructed because no detail is missed at this strangely named beach club in Seminyak – fairy lights wrap their way around tree trunks, and intricate bunting stretches out over the arcing lounge area where daybeds are bedecked in multi-coloured throws (changed for each new guest who flops there) sit, looking out to sea. The cocktail menu here is truly excellent, and fruity numbers are served in conch shells and teapots alike. However, you shouldn’t skip out on food here – there’s a choice between authentic Indonesian cuisine, seafood and pizza, all of which will help you soak up those cocktails while tantalising your taste buds. For the ultimate Potato Head experience, do your research and book a trip to coincide with that of a big name DJ – big hitters like FatBoy Slim have taken to the decks here!

Manarai Beach House

Nusa Dua is home to some of Bali’s most famed beaches – their popularity lies in the soft, white sands that slope gently into turquoise seas. Bali’s volcanic nature means that the majority of its beaches are black sand, which while lovely are less than picture perfect. The Manarai Beach House makes the most of this picturesque setting, with roomy day beds directly on the beach. If you prefer your swimming water to be a little more chlorinated, there are two swimming pools to splash about in! The restaurant here has a focus on fresh, healthy meals and yet there are more calorific treats for those looking to indulge too! The soundtrack here has laid back lounge vibes, meaning that chilling out is the name of the game.

OMNIA Dayclub Bali

OMNIA, on the Bukit Peninsula, is one of Bali’s sleekest beach clubs. It boasts a structure jutting out on stilts on a craggy clifftop with vistas out to sea. As a strictly over 21s venue, you’ll be able to sip your cocktails without any distraction from wayward teens and little ones. There’s a freeform infinity pool offering views out to the Indian Ocean, which breaks far below and a cube-shaped bar surrounded by loungers that juts out on its own, and is sure to grace many an Instagram feed. As part of the Hakkasan group, you can be sure to find great food here too – the Sake no Hana restaurant offers Japanese fare in a smart setting.
