1. An all-day date spot – SugarSand at Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach


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?!
