Built on a natural cave 14 metres above the Indian Ocean, Rock Bar in Bali has combined the wild natural surroundings of rock and sea with beautifully designed glass that makes the bar top and the walls. The rock where the bar is built is an outcrop on Ayana’s 1.3 metres coastline Kisik Beach.
Rock Bar belongs to Ayana Resort & Spa, which is a 77-hectare property that features 78 private luxury villas and a 290-room hotel. The award winning luxury resort had Japanese designer Yasuhiro Koichi of Japan’s Design Studio SPIN use of his signature style - traditional materials, motifs and colours, which give a minimalist contemporary design that emphasizes the natural beauty of the landscape.
In compliment of the design, Seiki Torige was also invited to be part of the project in designing the bar top for Rock Bar. The bar top was made out of thousands of paper-thin glass ‘canes’, produced one by one and layered one on top of the other for a sparkling effect. This effect is enhanced by the illumination from beneath the bar. The inspiration came from the wild beauty of the ocean’s energy. Seiki described that the waves that breaks upon the rock during high tide is like ‘aquatic fireworks’ while during low tide, the 100 metre long coral reef can be seen from the bar.
The most enchanting experience for being at the bar is the 360 degrees view of every vantage point without any interruption. It is the best place for party as the DJ booth is built among the rocks in front of the bar and the venue is surrounded by Bose outdoor stereo system.
A beautiful venue is always a plus for great drinks. At Rock Bar, the menu’s focus is of liquid variety, with a comprehensive list of classic and contemporary cocktails that makes it popular for a pre- or post-dinner visit. Guests are offered a delectable selection of tapas served on natural stone ‘plates’, to go with the theme of the bar.
