Everyone knows that Bali has a plethora of amazing places to hide from the sun by chilling out and sipping fabulous cocktails listening to funky music… but how many new ones really stand out from the crowd? Azul Beach Club in Padma, Legian, is one such spot that has been on our radar since opening a few months back and it’s definitely got everything right!
Azul Beach Club Layout
The inviting all-bamboo structure with the thatch-roof domes includes three levels with lounge sections, semi-open dining area and a bar. Each section is overlooking the Indian Ocean, so whatever you choose to do – lounge by the swimming pool, indulge in world-class cocktails at the bar, or savour some of the delish food on offer – you will not miss out on a scenic view with spectacular sunsets as far as the horizon can be. The beach club justifies its name Azul – which means ‘blue’ in Spanish – with its chic bar decorated with blue colours that match the blue skies and blue ocean perfectly.
By day, Azul Beach Club offers a fancy-and-fun hangout with friends (not to mention a cool refuge from the summer heat!), while at night it turns into an elegant dining venue. The vast selection of signature cocktails, prepared by the outstanding mixologist Joseph Boroski, are beyond comparison. Try their very tropical ‘Blue Drink on the Beach’, which includes coconut liquor, rum, and fresh pineapple, and you will instantly feel like you are truly on holiday! Prices for signature cocktails range from IDR85,000 to IDR120,000, which is very reasonable cost comparatively for such a selection of distinctive signatures.
Food Glorious Food
Another star addition, renowned Chef Arief Wicaksono, works miracles in the kitchen. Azul’s ‘farm to fork’ approach focuses on the quality and freshness of food, allowing clients to relish the vast range of innovative dishes. The incredible combination of various international cuisines makes the dining experience in Azul truly exclusive. In the best Spanish tradition, the restaurant also serves tapas from the menu, and this is must-try regardless!
Lounge Beats from DJ’s Every Week
Every Sunday the resident DJ (and frequent live bands) are playing at Azul Beach Club, so do not miss a sure-fire party, whether you have been planning to head for weeks, or just on the spur of the moment.
Azul Beach Club is a new social elite getaway offering high-end services along with a wide array of signature cocktails and innovative food menu. Two superstars with their chef and mixologist gathered under one thatch-roof is a win-win combination. Head to the beach club to cool off from the tropical heat, and stay there until the sunset, sipping a cocktail, savouring tapas and relishing in your Balinese holiday – that’s an order!
