Recently opened in June, with beachfront dining available in August, AYANA takes guests back to a more rustic time in Bali’s legendary holiday lifestyle, with the launch of Kubu Beach Club’s 1960s heritage Bali vibe.
Located on one of Bali’s last remaining hidden white sand beach coves, and accessible only through AYANA’s 90-hectare estate, Kubu Beach Club’s supreme setting showcases aquamarine waters, dramatic limestone cliffs and intrinsic Balinese architecture inspired by island elements such as shell, wood, bamboo, stone and traditional rooftops made with “lontar” leafs, similar to the island’s classic palm leaf. The club is fully appointed with a contemporary wooden deck, comfortable hammocks, Balinese style Lean-to cabana, and natural whole teakwood loungers.
Designed to be a main attraction for beachfront relaxing & dining, Kubu Beach Club is only accessible to in-house guests of AYANA Resort and Spa BALI, RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA and The Villas at AYANA. Tucked away from the hustle of daily life, the club is designed to intertwine lazy days in the sun with fun filled memorable moments for all the family. Come dusk, guests will be thrilled by the flawless sunset views on the horizon.
To accompany the traditional design, the kitchen serves an eclectic range of simple international dishes and local comfort foods. Menu items range from hearty favourites such as snapper ceviche and charcoal bun cheese burger to traditional Balinese dishes including signature rice dishes as well as the well-loved local favorites “Rujak Gula” a seasonal fruits marinated with palm sugar and tamarind, “Bakso balung” an oxtail beef meatball soup and traditional chicken or pork satays. Warm and friendly service goes beyond expectation with a more creative approach that makes guests feel included in the overall experience. The Beach Bar reflects the aesthetic of true Balinese camaraderie, with an endless flow of ice-cold beers, fresh coconut water and vintage Balinese Tiki cocktails and Arak based classic cocktails.
Guests can expect an inside preview into the golden age of Kuta’s bygone era with authentic amenities such as beachside massages performed under the coconut tree using natural coconut oil and a hair-braiding service and temporary tattoos.
Thanks to AYANA’s innovative cliff-side inclinator, recently installed to service Kubu Beach Club, guests can choose to experience the invigorating 197-step journey, or a quick 35-second ride up and down AYANA’s inspiring cliff-front terrain.
Kubu Beach Club is open every day from 9.00am – 7.00pm, with lunch service starting at 11.00am. Families staying at AYANA are welcome to enjoy a delicious and comforting meal with their children. Small groups are encouraged to plan ahead when booking private dining events and beachfront cocktail parties.
With a capacity of up to 80 guests, Kubu Beach Club is the perfect additional to AYANA’s already impressive facilities.
