Retro-chic Tropicola Beach Club is Bali’s Newest Summer Hot Spot

Located in Seminyak, the 7,000-square-meter beach club boasts sun-soaking spots by the pool and piña colada cocktails.

Photogenic grid-lined walls, swimming pools dressed in sunny, primary colors, and endless rounds of piña coladas make for the perfect summer getaway.

We’re talking about the newly opened Tropicola Beach Club in Bali, the latest creation from the team behind Motel Mexicola in Bali and Bucket List in Bondi Beach.

Located on Seminyak’s sweeping stretch of golden sand, the retro-chic beach club references nostalgic places both real and imagined.

The aesthetic here is a modern take on the beach clubs of Miami, Palm Springs, and Tulum in their yesteryears, with a splash of unapologetically bright colors and clean, graphic lines reminiscent of the ’80s Memphis design movement.

Here, guests will find a beach club, as well as a soon-to-open restaurant, rooftop bar, and hotel; all dressed in technicolored hues on a 7,000-square-meter expanse.

Fans of Mexicola’s tacos and taquitos will be pleased to know that chef Steven Skelly will also be taking the reins at Tropicola’s kitchen.

The menu at the latter leans towards Mediterranean-style cuisine, ranging from woodfired meats to fresh seafood and grilled vegetables. Light enough for seaside grazing, the dishes will highlight the best of local produce.

Over the course of the following year, the beach club will welcome a 60-room hotel, which will be blessed with stunning views stretching from the Bukit Peninsula all the way to Tanah Lot.

And if all that’s not enough reason to pay Tropicola a visit, complimentary sunset drinks (a signature ritual here) served by staff in crisp white and red uniforms certainly will be.

Must-tries include the Tropicolada, a piña colada crafted with jackfruit instead of pineapple, and the beach club’s very own espresso martini made using arak (a homegrown Indonesian coconut-based liquor)-infused with Kintamani coffee beans and mandarin peel.
