One of the best places to go in Bali to watch the sunset is Rock Bar at the Ayana Resort and Spa. After our amazing elephant expedition, the girls and I headed over to Jimbaran to take a gander at what we heard would be the most beautiful sunset ever.
The Ayana Resort and Spa is unbelievably gorgeous…and HUGE! Everywhere you look there are statues of Balinese dancers, stunning landscapes and koi ponds. Since Rock Bar is located literally off of the rocks on the side of the resort, we had to take quite a few stairs to get down to a lift. The lift then takes you down further to the bar. Getting in the long line to get to the restaurant lets you know just how popular this place is. Although we heard from the locals that Rock Bar was a “touristy” place, that was okay with us…after all, we WERE tourists.
Here’s the view from the lift:
I think my jaw may have hit the floor when I saw the view from the lift. This place was SO beautiful! We didn’t know where to start…Do we sit? Do we walk around? Do we get a drink, then sit?! We finally settled on grabbing a seat nearest to the edge of the rocks for maximum sunset watching action! And then the photo shoot began…just as the sun started to set.
It’s almost as if we could hear the moment the sun kissed the ocean, leading up to what was without a doubt the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen:
If you ever find yourself in Bali and you’re looking for something to do, then Rock Bar is definitely worth checking out…never mind what the locals say about it being a touristy place, trust me, you DON’T want to miss out on this place! Until next time!
Where did you see your most beautiful sunset?
