When I think of Bali, I think about paradise. My idea of island life is definitely one where I bask under the sun while sipping on a freshly squeezed fruit mocktail as I nibble on tapas before refreshing myself in an infinity pool or best yet, the stunning blue waters of the Indian Ocean lying before me. I mean, nothing quite says you’re on holiday like drinking a mojito as you lounge on a sunbed at 1pm, right?

And not that we’re complaining – Bali has seen a rash of new beach clubs, hidden bars, quirky cafes and unique restaurants that are chic and sleek or even rustic and homey. These venues let you party and relax from day to night!

So after several trips gallivanting through the best beach clubs around the island, here’s a well- crafted 4D3N itinerary to party in style and swim to infinity with sherbet-coloured cocktails by your side. Now, here’s how to soak up the inimitable atmosphere of Bali as you hop from one beach club to the next!

You really can’t go wrong with a date at SugarSand. Beautiful al-fresco spaces, mood-setting ambience and breathtaking ocean views (especially at sunset) get things off to a perfect start, before the dishes even begin to arrive.

Head over to this gorgeous beachfront venue located at Hotel Indigo in the heart of Seminyak to celebrate love along with some of the finest food and drinks on the island.

SugarSand has recently undergone a delightful transformation, reimagining its essence with a fresh perspective. The unveiling of a new menu was carefully curated for both lunch and dinner by their Japanese specialty chef, Syamsul Rizal, who added a touch of culinary magic to the ambience.

Embracing an intimate and romantic allure, the dining venue now beckons with Japanese Izakaya-style cuisine in an atmosphere that seamlessly blends sophistication with warmth.

Among the culinary treasures awaiting discovery on their revamped menu, the Yakimeshi Wagyu stands out as a crown jewel. This main course masterpiece tantalises tastebuds with the succulence of Wagyu Beef, the crispiness of garlic, and the harmonious combination of cabbage, shimeji mushroom, corn, edamame, and rice crackers. The menu also boasts an extensive array of maki rolls, each a delightful journey of flavours and textures.

As the sun sets and SugarSand transitions into the evening, the excitement only intensifies with the addition of tantalising wok dishes to the dinner menu.

To conclude the evening on a sweet note, you can revel in the luscious temptation of a matcha sundae or the exquisite indulgence of a yuzu cheese tart along with one of their Japanese-inspired cocktails, right by the pool. How’s this for romance?!

At the restaurant, centuries-old recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation are brought back to life with a modern twist.

Best time to travel to Bali

  • Bali has a reliable, warm and tropical climate all year round, with temperatures averaging from 26°C to 28°C. Locations at high altitude, such as Bedugul, enjoy chillier weather.

  • The dry season is generally from May to September, and the wet season from October to April.

  • Peak season in Bali is from July to August, as well as during Easter holidays, Christmas and New Year.

  • In May, June and September (non-peak period), accommodation is 30% to 50% cheaper than peak season rates. Plus, you still get great dry season weather most of the time.

  • If you enjoy watersports, such as surfing, the waves are great during April and October. While slight rain showers are expected, you’ll also see plenty of sunshine. These are also great months to travel with children as most theme parks and attractions are less crowded, making getting around stress-free!

Note: Nyepi is the day of silence that falls on the Balinese New Year. All attractions will be closed, and everyone observes a day of fasting and silence. It’s an inspiring spectacle to be part of, but please respect the local rules and culture, and stay indoors while remaining quiet.

How many days is enough for Bali?

If you’re travelling from Singapore or Malaysia, the recommended days you should visit here would be about 4-5 days — it’s the perfect amount of time here to get to know what Bali has to offer, and since prices are generally affordable, it wouldn’t be money wasted for a short trip!

But if you’re travelling from elsewhere in Asia (outside Southeast Asia), a week in Bali would be perfect.

For travellers coming from outside of Asia: If you’re coming from Australia, USA or Europe, you might want to stay here for about 8-10 days to fully immerse yourself in Bali’s culture. Try hitting the beach clubs, going for water sports, trekking up Mount Batur or Mount Agung, indulging in gorgeous massages and immersing yourself in Balinese dances and performances!

And don’t forget about the hearty food that Bali has to offer!

Getting around Bali

Since you’re on your first trip to Bali, it’s definitely much more convenient to either stick to the ever-reliable Bluebird taxis, Grab and Go-Jek, or simply opt for reliable car rental options with a driver and/or guide. If you’re absolutely confident about driving in Indonesia, then skip the driver/guide!
