Bali is one of my all-time favourite places to visit. I've been so many times I've lost count, but I'd say well over 20! One of my favourite parts of Bali recently is all the beach clubs that have popped up. They bring a whole new level of relaxation and luxury to your holiday and they do it so well over there. To help you relax here are the best beach clubs in Bali (as far as I'm concerned anyway!)
The Best Beach Clubs in Bali
These are in no particular order- all the beach clubs have their own unique appeal and I love them all!
Ku De Ta- Seminyak
Probably the original beach club in Bali (well as far as I know) it might not be the fanciest or the most decadent but the prices are great and the location is perfect. They added a pool a few years ago, which I love. It's right on the beach in Seminyak and its all-inclusive breakfast for about $15 is one of the best breakfast deals you'll find. I rock up in the morning, grab a bed (minimum spend 500 000 IDR per person, aka around $50, for a daybed) and then sit down for the breakfast. After breakfast, break out the book, lie by the pool and order food and drinks as you want them. This is my go-to for my first day of my Bali holiday. It gets you straight into holiday mode and kick starts the relaxation perfectly!
If you are going in peak time get there early if you want a bed- it fills up fast. In the late afternoon the music kicks off for sunset drinks and it gets a more party atmosphere so if you're not into that then it's time to head off!
Jungle Fish- Ubud
This is a beach club, with no beach! It's set in the jungle up in Ubud and it's AMAZING! I could have spent days here. It's 75 000 IDR (AUD$7.50 entry) and that gives you a towel as well. Kids under six are free. The menu is fantastic and there is a whole range of lounging options, including in the water. The whole layout is spectacular and worth the drive out to Ubud. Be aware that there are quite a few stairs down though.
They also offer villa accommodation and a day spa if you want to spend some time there.
Sundays Beach Club (Formerly Finn's Beach Club) - Uluwatu
Sundays Beach Club is the newest version of the former Finn's Beach Club in Uluwatu and still one of the best beach clubs in Bali. The original Finn's was damaged in the 2016 storms and it became Sundays. It's a real beach club, right on the beach (no pool). There is food service on the deck or on bean bags on the beach. At high tide, you can swim in the small waves and at low tide, you can snorkel and kayak. They have happy hour, live music and you can have spa treatments as well.
It costs 300 000 IDR (AUD$30) for adults and 50 000 (AUD $5) for children 3-11. Under 3 is free. Take note that access is half inclinator and half very steep cliffside stairs so not great for tiny children.
This is a new addition to the pool club scene and it's pretty spectacular. Multi level infinity pools, with an amazing view and a cave bar underneath. It's up near Ubud, and they offer entry packages that include food and drinks. Entry/ pool access only is 20 000IDR (about $20AUD) and then you can get family packages that include food and drink. For 750 000IDR ($75AUD) you get entry for 2 adults and 2 kids, two pizzas, a bowl of pasta, chicken bites and chips, and a drink each.
El Kabron- Uluwatu
More a cliff club that a beach club, El Kabron is on the cliffs of Uluwatu and to be honest, it's pretty damn spectacular. It's a Spanish restaurant and it feels like you are perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. It's not cheap though. Entry to the Cliff Club is 650 000IDR (AUD$65) and that includes a glass of Chandon and 300 000IDR credit for food and beverages. Children are 250 000IDR (AUD$25). The food at the Cliff Club is tapas style and pretty pricey. The whole experience though is amazing. Its pool, looking over the uninterrupted skyline, is very special and something you won't find in many places.
It's definitely worth a visit and it's just the place to watch the amazing sunset over the water. make sure you book though!
Potato Head- Seminyak
Potato Head is one of the most popular beach clubs in Bali. It's design when you walk in is spectacular and made up of recycled window shutters. You really need to see it. As a disclaimer, it's not really my favourite as a whole as it costs a lot and it's more of a party scene but it's massively popular.
It's set on the beach in Seminyak and it has a pool and beach access. It's free entry but a minimum spend for the daybeds of 500 000IDR (AUD$50) and you can't reserve them so it's first in, best rested! Potato Head is popular so get in early.
Mrs. Sippy- Seminyak
Now, as a disclaimer, I didn't actually get to this one yet but it looks amazing and is the hottest beach club in Bali right now. It has the island's biggest saltwater pool apparently, as well as diving boards. It's more party that relax by the look of it but the perfect place to head for cocktails by the pool with the girls.
Heads up though that it has a large maximum spend for daybeds on the weekend which is why I didn't make it there on my last trip. Mon-Fri the minimum spend is 1million IDR (AUD$100) and on weekends it's 3million IDR (AUD $300). Beds are available from Midday. There are also a bar and dining options.
If you are enjoying a kid-free holiday in Bali make sure you check out things to do in Canggu as well. It's one of my favourite places to relax and has amazing cafes!
