One of the well-known luxury resorts in Uluwatu is the Ayana Resort. The friends Matt & Sara that I met in Ubud were staying here so after a day of fun together at The Semara Beach Club they invited me to join them at the hotel’s infamous Rock Bar for sunset drinks followed by a Birthday Dinner for Sara at the Kisik Ocean Front Bar & Grill. These were definitely the most spectacular sunset cocktails I’ve EVER HAD. It’s hard not to be impressed with a bar that you can only get to by gondola (at least going down, exiting was much easier) with spectacular views with the ocean splashing up at you. Be sure to stay after the sun sets as the bar is even cooler when it’s dark and you feel like you’re floating over the ocean Any trip to Bali must include a visit to Ayana’s Rock Bar . Jl.
