Located 14 meters atop a rock that overlooks the Indian Ocean, Ayana Resort and Spa Baliâ€™s Rock Bar has gained worldwide popularity as one of the island’sÂ go-to destination for a sunset cocktail session since it first opened in 2009. This month, the venue, which has been listed by CNN as one of the worldâ€™s 30 best hotel bars, is addingÂ new seating areas and decks that accommodate 225 more people, taking the total number of guests it can host up to 650.
Rock Barâ€™s original designer, Yasuhiro Koichi, of Japanâ€™s Design Studio SPIN, led the expansion, and made good use of the natural rock formation to create a seaside bar unlike any other. Located just steps awayÂ from the original venue, the designer has built also a unique circular space called the Round Deck, where up to 18 exclusive guests can enjoy a 240-degree panoramic view of the sunset.
