The vibe is right, the gestalt is now … Andrea R. Drops in on a trio of sunset spaces.
KAKI LIMA BY THE SEA
INSPIRED by the traditional “five-legged” food stalls that roll out all across the islands of Indonesia selling traditional dishes, Kaki Lima (as in three
legs rolling, two legs walking) is one of the newest and freshest additions
Operated by Hotel Tugu Bali and located on a green, sloped lawn that reaches all the way to the beach front, with sports equipment and toys available for all guests, big or small, to play with, everyone is sure to have a great time in this colour-dappled, gypsy-inspired venue.
The atmosphere is laid back and cozy, with vibrant, bohemian style decorations, lanterns and big floor pillows to nestle down on as you relax with a nice meal from the caravan-esque barbecue, or drinks together with family or friends.
One of the great things about this beachfront warung and bar is the fact that parents can chill out while the kids are roaming around on the humongous green soccer field-sized lawn without a worry in the world.
And if you’re a music lover, Kaki Lima offers a Gypsy Night every Friday evening, with acoustic music around a big bonfire under the stars, barbecue on the pit and big pitchers of sangria, all surrounded by torches and lanterns and an amazing vibe. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the sun setting on the horizon, with the option to dance your way into the night . . .
The beer is cold, the drinks are delicious and the foods are fresh and super tasty. A wonderful venue for lazy day brunches, after-surf chill outs, parties and full moon dining.

OLD MAN’S BEER GARDEN
THIS retro beachfront beer garden, with its circular bamboo structure and funky mural by the Australian artist Lucas Grogan, is a must try if you are in the Canggu area looking for a nice, relaxing spot for a drink, or a meal with interesting and creative variations on otherwise unremarkable dishes – like the Sky High burgers served on a wooden plate; seafood pastas in different and creative variations; and yummy Indonesian dishes.
Revamped and with a new name, this vibrant meeting place has
become a favourite for afternoon beer session and is also an amazing
venue to enjoy sunset drinks by the ocean, taking in the changing of the
skies as night rolls in.
With a cool and trendy turn on “surf club meets beach bar”, Old Man’s is located in an open-aired and spacious area with super comfy cushions to lounge on and chill with friends for drinks and nibbles. Sit back and relax or dance into the night to the music palyed by the in-house DJ, who is present on any given day, except on weekends when live music rocks the house until late.
Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay’s new and sophisticated restaurant and beachfront bar, Sundara, truly lives up to the meaning of its sanskrit name – “beautiful”. In fact, we daresay it surpasses the expectations of having been given such a name.
With an outstanding and superior selection of international cuisine, and ranked as one of the top restaurants and bars on the island, Sundara has become one of the hottest and hippest additions to the south of Bali and boasts both indoor and outdoor areas for all the more pleasure and fun.
Whether you choose to sit down for a casual lunch, or lounge on the patio, basking in the sunlight by the infinity edge until sunset – with one of their signature cocktails in your hand, of course – or if you enjoy a sophisticated dinner in the restaurant, you will be sure to be treated like royalty.
Executive chef, Greg Bunt, makes sure the menu lives up to its reputation with intricate preparations, unique textures and complex flavours – from refinements of classic favourites to one-of-a-kind signature creations.
And being the international hotspot for innovative cocktails that it is, Sundara’s owners invited Javier de las Muelas – one of the world’s leading mixologists and owner of Barcelona’s Dry Martini – to spend a month at Jimbaran Bay to design recipes and train Sundara staff.
