Su­garSand and Ev­ery­thing Nice

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine -

Af­ter much ex­cite­ment-filled an­tic­i­pa­tion, Su­garSand opened its doors to those look­ing for a re­fresh­ing beach­front des­ti­na­tion. A beach­side bar, restau­rant and so much more, Su­garSand is a strik­ing two-storey struc­ture, right by the al­ways lively Seminyak Beach, serving up mes­meris­ing views of the In­dian Ocean.

The con­tem­po­rary ex­te­rior re­sem­bles a jukung – the lo­cal tra­di­tional fish­ing boat, sym­bol­is­ing the con­nec­tion to the sur­round­ing land and sea. The look doesn't stop at the fa­cade, as the eclec­tic in­te­rior de­sign com­prises an en­chant­ing ca­coph­ony of colours, rein­vent­ing and in­cor­po­rat­ing Ja­panese el­e­ments and draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from Bali's wild na­ture in the de­tails.

A swim­ming pool and pool­side daybeds are avail­able for those seek­ing the ul­ti­mate trop­i­cal life. For the un­matched sen­sa­tion of sand be­tween the toes, head to Su­garSand beach bar and ter­race, and for a more el­e­vated ex­pe­ri­ence of sun­set watch­ing, go di­rectly to the ope­nair roof lounge on the sec­ond floor.

The beach club serves cre­ative Nikkei­in­spired fare, fo­cus­ing on the use of lo­cally sourced in­gre­di­ents from both land and sea. Ex­pect a scrump­tious se­lec­tion of ce­viche, tira­di­tos, sushi, ro­bata grill dishes and more.

On the bev­er­age front is a con­tem­po­rary re-imag­in­ing of cock­tail his­tory and cul­ture. Sip on li­ba­tions the like of which you've ever sipped be­fore, in­clud­ing Ja­pane­sein­spired cock­tails, sake and sochu and an in­trigu­ing se­lec­tion of slow-cooked G&Ts.

Mu­sic is an im­por­tant el­e­ment at Su­garSand, ev­i­dent in the rich reper­toire on spin here, from rare grooves to soul­ful techno, jazzy hip hop to disco – Su­garSand is where the mu­sic never dies.
