OMNIA DAYCLUB BALI
Jalan Belimbing Sari, Banjar Tambiyak, Desa Pecatu, Uluwatu Bali
Popular Bali surf spot, Uluwatu, is setting the scene for the first OMNIA Dayclub and its resident restaurant, Sake No Hana. The 80-metre venue on a plateau along the cliffs was designed by architect groups, WOHA and Rockwell Group, as a space that redefines next-level luxury. From the cliffside infinity pool, complete with a swim-up bar, to private cabanas and breathtaking art installations, the club oozes five-star charm and indulgence from corner to corner.
A highlight is The Cube: a glittering silver sculpture set against the seemingly endless ocean backdrop that lights up as the night sky falls. The lighting of the installation combines with the natural sunset to produce a picture-perfect end of day scene – no doubt one that will become an Instagram favourite very soon.
These world-class views set the scene for what is expected to be an incredible line-up of talented acts coming to play in OMNIA’s debut season. The clubs rose to fame in the heart of nightclub culture, Las Vegas, in 2015 and have since played host to some of the biggest names in the DJ world and extended their reach with clubs by the same name opening in San Diego, Los Cabos and Jakarta.
The group behind the clubs, Hakkasan Group, boasts close ties with names like Calvin Harris, Kaskade and Martin Garrix – each of whom has played at the Las Vegas club. With this in mind, the selection of musical masterminds to grace OMNIA Dayclub’s stage is highly anticipated. Further details will be released closer to the high season in April.
The centre of the culinary action happens at the club’s all-day dining restaurant, Sake No Hana. The modern Japanese venue is a spin-off of the London restaurant by the same name. Its menu focusses on charcoal grill, toban and kamameshi dishes as well as a sushi and sashimi bar. Perched above the day club, visitors can take a seat in the open-air cage that takes full advantage of the panoramic views across the limestone cliffs and take in the sights and sounds of the party people below. More relaxed dining happens downstairs, where glowing light installations create a warm atmosphere and the minimalist vibe promotes laid-back eating. Alternatively, enjoy a bite to eat from the club menu and indulge poolside.
Sake No Hana’s Executive Chef, Hideki Hiwatashi, has curated a delicious offering that showcases the best of modern Japanese cuisine. Think tuna sashimi followed by 6 kinds of nigari, cod with yuzu chilli cooked over charcoal grill and sukiyaki beef cooked before your eyes at your table. The full all-day menu is yet to be released, so expect to see versatile Japanese dishes to be enjoyed all day long.
OMNIA Dayclub and Sake No Hana restaurant are slated to kick things off early February. Whether you’re a die-hard foodie, a DJ groupie or just love to lounge by the pool and sip cocktails for hours, this is one to keep in mind when planning a trip to Bali.
