You know how we love shiny new things! And there really are such a lot of hip and fabulous new things hitting the streets of Bali this October. Listen up.
Ultra hip cocktail bar come lounge come venue space, the Kilo team has been busy working its magic in Bali and is putting the finishing touches to the launch of the new Jalan Drupadi space (find them at Honeycombers’ fave villa setup Uma Sapna). Expect a snug space with lots of eco design inspiration from the natural surrounds of Bali, inspired fusion cocktails from the Kilo mixologists, pan Asian/Western cuisine to match the healthy pours, tasty music and a cool unpretentious crowd. We know it’s going to be big.
Creatives, change makers and entrepreneurs unite and have overthrown the old Bali guard at this HQ hangout of free thinking, new business minded individuals down in deepest Canggu. A luxurious two-floored villa has been converted into the ultimate tropical co-working space with swimming pool, for those all important brainstorming sessions and enough quality coffee on hand to fuel the entire R&D team over a Cupertino. Blazing fast Internet and a cool crew make this place an instant success in our books, even though they’re still in their ‘beta stage’ at the moment. Jump online, show some love and sign up.
Limbo Hip at La Finca
Perfectly bridging the gap between sundown and dinner, the boys at La Finca have rolled up their collective Spanish sleeves and are offering a super cool little soiree with 2-for-1 Jose Cuervo shots, ice cold beers, Balearic soul from resident Adrian Giordano and the ubiquitous limbo stick. Deep breath in girls.
Love F Hotel Bali
Love F Hotel Bali
Jalan Legian plays host to the brand new first of a kind Fashion TV Hotel with 200 stylish rooms, two restaurants, a love spa, rooftop swimming pool and, of course, the prereq F Bar and gift shop so you won’t miss an onbeat branded moment. Packages start at just over a mill a night for a dose of kitsch couture F Bali style.
A small store of special things it may be, but it’s big on heart, fashion art and funky knick knack objects of affection from designer brands you’ll not find elsewhere in Bali. Expect to find some quality clothing, accessories and homewares and hold off buying a new pair of shades until you’ve checked out the ultra cool range of handmade Pared Eyewear in store. If only every boutique in Bali was half as tasteful and well thought out as Kiosk.
One part art gallery, one part movie theatre and two parts raw food restaurants, shake well together and you have Ubud’s latest addition to the art scene. Expect lots of underground events, indie movie nights, performances and contemporary art installations in the upcoming months and years. Grand opening is now, be a part of the Paradiso movement and head up there.
Kaiana Salon & Spa
A brand spanking new day spa tucked upstairs at old timers’ fave nosh spot Made’s Warung Legian. This funky bi-level spa space has it going on with three treatment rooms, beauty salon, manicure and pedicure, reflexology and state of the art equipment. What really makes Kaiana special is the personalised service and such gems as the vanilla coconut passion spa package guaranteed to sort you out after a long day’s shopping on the mean streets of Seminyak. Very cool little outfit. See the full story here.
