Om­nia Bali has be­come one of the most pop­u­lar day clubs in Bali. Can you tell us about its unique de­sign and con­cept?

De­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Woha Group and Rock­well Group, Om­nia brings breath­tak­ing views with stun­ning ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails to pro­vide form and op­er­a­tional func­tion. Ev­ery ele­ment of the venue was care­fully thought through from the width of the bar tops, to the place­ment of the daybeds. As this was the first Om­nia Day­club, branch­ing off from our night­clubs and the first of the brand’s move to Asia, we wanted to bring the “wow fac­tor” of Ve­gas en­ter­tain­ment to Bali.

What is your role in the es­tab­lish­ment? Can you tell us about your back­ground?

I am half Fin­nish and half Aus­tralian, how­ever I was raised in Sin­ga­pore and lived there for over 20 years. My fam­ily has been vis­it­ing Bali since the 80s, but I first moved to Bali al­most two years ago with my wife Cyn­thia and chil­dren as the pre-open­ing AGM, and that is my cur­rent role. We do not have an ac­tual gen­eral man­ager at Om­nia, nor Sake no Hana, but we have that re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously worked in night­clubs across the globe from Lon­don, to Sin­ga­pore, to Helsinki and Las Ve­gas, en­ter­tain­ment and hos­pi­tal­ity have been my pas­sion for over 14 years. In Las Ve­gas I worked with Hakkasan Group (Founders of Om­nia Night­club, Hakkasan Night­club and many other venues), so when I was pre­sented the op­tion to re­turn to Asia to open Om­nia Day­club with the group, it was an op­por­tu­nity I could not turn down.

What do you think sets The Cube Bar and Sake no Hana apart from other bars and res­tau­rants on the is­land?

Ma­jes­ti­cally nes­tled in trop­i­cal green­ery on the dra­matic cliffs of Uluwatu, both The Cube at Om­nia Day­club Bali and Sake no Hana of­fer day guests a spec­tac­u­lar ex­pe­ri­ence with a view that dif­fers from the rest of the Is­land. With the finest food, drinks and fa­cil­i­ties in the re­gion, all com­ple­mented by world class DJ en­ter­tain­ment, and with both brands co-ex­ist­ing within the prop­erty, this is def­i­nitely a hotspot for the global party set, bring­ing a new and unique daylife ex­pe­ri­ence.

Om­nia Bali has had some of the world's big­gest DJs per­form on­stage. Who are you bring­ing next and who would you like to see per­form at Om­nia?

Our en­ter­tain­ment line-up is one of our big­gest se­crets, sorry. Our in-house team and in­ter­na­tional teams work tire­lessly to bring the best and lead­ing DJs con­stantly. Although I can­not say who is booked for 2019, I can say that all you have to do is look at our res­i­dent DJ list in Ve­gas and that’s a good in­di­ca­tion.

Ul­ti­mately I would love to see Calvin Har­ris per­form at Om­nia. As one of our Las Ve­gas res­i­dents, I have seen him many times be­fore, but to be able to bring one of elec­tronic mu­sic’s Gods to the Is­land of the Gods would be amaz­ing.

The Hol­i­day Sea­son is fast ap­proach­ing. What are Om­nia Bali's spe­cial Christ­mas and New Year's events and pro­mo­tions?

Over the fes­tive sea­son we are run­ning a Christ­mas in­spired food menu of roast beef and roast pork loin with all the ex­tras. Aside from the food, we be­lieve that our staff are one of the main rea­sons for our suc­cess, so we chal­lenged the bar team to cre­ate five unique Bali Christ­mas cock­tails. Th­ese will be avail­able from De­cem­ber 22 to 26.

New Year’s Eve will be an­other huge pro­duc­tion by Om­nia. Think HUGE fire­works, a top tier sound sys­tem, and a great line-up of artists per­form­ing. DJ Ruckus – whom GQ mag­a­zine called “the most sought-af­ter DJ in the world” will be bring­ing us into 2019 along with some spe­cial guests.

What are the plans for Om­nia Bali in the com­ing year?

We are con­stantly evolv­ing menus, pro­duc­tion, and of course our DJ line-ups – 2019 will have some re­ally ex­cit­ing add-ons in store, but th­ese are all closely guarded se­crets. I can say though that we will have Duke Du­mont on Jan­uary 5, 2019.
