Located 14 meters atop a rock that overlooks the Indian Ocean, Ayana Resort and Spa Bali’s Rock Bar has gained worldwide popularity as one of the island’s 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 world’s 30 best hotel bars, is adding new seating areas and decks that accommodate 225 more people, taking the total number of guests it can host up to 650.
Rock Bar’s original designer, Yasuhiro Koichi, of Japan’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 away 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.
