Beach or Day Clubs have become part and parcel of holidaying in Bali. With their relaxed and trendy vibe travellers from all over the world can’t resist the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the sunshine in style. Here are three of Bali’s Best Beach Clubs (and my favourites) that you can enjoy on your next getaway to Bali.
Omnia Day Club
Omina is a well known day club that is perched high up on the cliff at Uluwatu offering unbelievably stunning views across the Indian ocean. Omnia is the perfect place to take millions of insta pics while lazing by the pool on one of the day beds, within your own VIP cabana or at the famous cube bar.
With its party club feel and its sophisticated surrounds Omnia is the perfect place to listen to the latest DJs. The day club has 3 bars, a casual eats menu which can be enjoyed poolside and is home to Sake no Hana a Japanese restaurant which has the most incredible water views you can ever imagine.
You will pay an entrance fee to get into Omnia and for the use of daybeds or cabanas. It is advised to pre-book if you plan to spend the whole day by the pool. I must tell you though we did find the food and drink prices are on the higher side. So if you’re watching your pennies just stay for a couple of drinks, take some incredible pics and enjoy the view!
Opening Hours: 11 am – 10.30 pm
Feel: Party Vibe
Cost: Entrance fee for weekdays is IDR 200,000 ++ and IDR 250,000 on weekends.
Additional charges apply for daybeds and cabanas

Reef Beach Club
The Apurva Kempinski has created Nusa Dua’s first beach club – Reef Beach Club. Here you can laze by the 42-meter infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean while being waitered on from the comfort of your sunbed or you can enjoy a signature cocktail and something delicious from the talented chefs in the impressive beach club restaurant which is architecturally amazing – be sure to order the mixed grill and satay sticks with a signature cocktail or my favourite a Hendricks G & T with cucumber and lime!
The reason I like the Reef Beach Club is for its relaxed feel and the music playing in the background is loud enough to hear the person next to you. You can enjoy live entertainment most nights and as the beach club forms part of the Kempinski Hotel it feels quite exclusive.
If you are not staying at Kempinski you can purchase a day pass which includes a credit back for food and beverages – but make sure you get in quick as day pass numbers are limited!
Location: The Apurva Kempinski, Nusa Dua
Opening Hours: 10 am -10 pm
Feel: Chic & Relaxed
Cost: Day pass cost IDR 400,000++ with IDR 300,000 food and beverage credit

Sundara Beach Club
Located within the Four Seasons Resort Sundara has views across the picture-perfect Jimbaran Bay. This iconic establishment allows guests to relax in the 57-meter infinity pool or on a double day bed while being looked after poolside with complimentary water, sun cream and delicious treats.
Cabana, sundeck or daybeds do attract a fee that includes a credit back for food and beverages. You will be able to order lunch or cocktails by the pool or up on Sundara’s deck – make sure you try the sangria and satay sticks – Yum!
What I like about Sundara is it offers a “VIP Boarding Lounge Experience” which means you can lounge by the pool until it’s time to fly out! This is a great option if you have a late flight and have to check out of your hotel room. This does, of course, attract a fee that includes a food and beverage credit.
Location: Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay
Opening Hours: From 11 am
Feel: Chic & Relaxed
Cost: Daybed fee based on two people IDR 1,200,000 ++ including food & beverage credit. Cabanas, sundeck and VIP boarding experience incur additional costs
