Jimbaran bar and restaurant the Rock Bar

Jimbaran bar and restaurant the Rock Bar is located in the Bali Ayana Resort. On a rock cliff 15-20 metres above the Indian Ocean, this is Bali sunset heaven.

Got something you want to share about your experience at Jimbaran bar and restaurant the Rock BarLeave your comment and rate the Rock Bar at the bottom of this page.

It is named the Rock Bar, obviously, as it is established among the rocks above the sea. The Rock Bar is located along the 1.3 kilometre coastline of Ayana Resort and Spa Bali.

Jimbaran bar and restaurant the Rock Bar has been heralded as one of the world’s best bars by sources including CNN and The New York Times, and in 2011 was voted Bali’s Best Sunset Venue in The Yak magazine readers’s awards, which possibly carries more weight than recommendations by massively bribed travel writers!!

To reach the Jimbaran bar and restaurant the Rock Bar you have to walk towards the foot end of the Ayana Resort hotel area, then through the park, swimming pool and shopping areas and restaurants, and then you have to use a special elevator which takes you down to the Rock Bar.

Designed by Yasuhiro Koichi of Japan’s Design Studio Spin in Tokyo. The bar itself was created by Japanese glass artist Seiki Torige using thousands of layers of recycled glass canes. Stunning.

The main bar on top of the rock is around 200 square metres or so, with an additional 600 square metre or so of surrounding terraces and paved areas. Not really child friendly as the fences on the cliff are pretty flimsy.

Signature cocktails designed by international bar consultant Sebastien Bonnefoi use only the highest-quality imported liquors blended with local fruits, herbs and spices to complement the natural setting.

The Rock bar in Jimbaran is a large place, with seating for around 250 people.

Priority access: In-house guests receive priority access at the inclinator and priority seating at the bar. If you are non-residents of the hotel you have to order at least one drink.

I went there last week with my family. We weren’t hotel guests but we didn’t have to wait too long to get the cable car to the Rock Bar and to get a table.

We ordered rock lobster, spring rolls. Indonesian glazed tamarinds for 95k, mix fries, potato wedges, curly fries and pita chips with hummus, curried mayonnaise and ketchup for 55k and beef chorizo corn dogs sun-dried tomato Hollandais for 70k.

For drinks we had strawberry juice with vanilla for 90k, pina colada at 155k which makes it one of the most expensive pina coladas on Bali, and the watermelon juice for 80k was way over the top. Nice but over the top. Just snobbish.

Sunset is naturally the busiest time, but after dark is just as magical with twinkling stars above and the spot-lit ocean in front, and the cooler night air.

Bali bar and restaurant the Rock Bar is the perfect place to unwind while enjoying amazing views with great food and drinks and cool music.

Resident music director Martin East leads a stellar DJ line-up spinning balaeric, nu-disco, deep house, and chill out tunes. Fantastic and innovative.

Rock Bar is THE glamour bar on the rock.

The Rock Bar at Ayana Resort and Spa Bali is located in Jalan Karang Mas Sejahtera Jimbaran, Bali,Tel: (62) 361 702 222 or  info@ayanaresort.com website

Regular opening hours: 4pm-1am everyday
Please note: the Rock Bar Bali has a dress code. (Phew – no Bintang clothing wearers!!) No singlets or boardshorts, and no alcohol-branded attire (Yes!).

For security reasons, no backpacks or oversized bags are allowed at Rock Bar Bali cliff bar. What you do when you arrive there with your backpack is your business. Maybe you have to leave again??

At least have a cloak room, please. Anyway it is not so much about security but the style they wish to present.
