Good for: Romance, Bar scene, Special occasions
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Delivery, Late Night
Description: A must-see for every visitor to Bali, this open-top bar is located on natural rocks 14 meters above the Indian Ocean at the base of AYANA's towering cliffs. Accessed via an inclinator, the Rock Bar is a spectacular feat of architecture and engineering. Inside tip: Sunset views are amazing but the night-time ambience is equally magical and less crowded under a star-lit sky. Don’t forget the Dress Code.

“"Awesome feel at a high price"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Though the place is way too expensive and also there is lot of waiting to get your table especially if one is visiting during sunset view, it is still worth every effort for a feel good experience.
Though we made it to the resort before sunset but since all tables were occupied and were expected to get free only after sunset, we had to wait and watch the sunset from the resort gardens which was beautiful too.
It was only post sunset when people started leaving did we get our turn to get seated. But, it's worth every wait and every penny to enjoy a drink at an amazing high class and stylish Bar. Go for the experience!!

Dear Shubha24,

Thank you for your patience waiting in the queue over the busy sunset period, I am glad that you found Rock Bar to be worth the wait! I personally enjoy Rock Bar by night due to the cooler night-air and less crowded ambience. We provide Priority Access for in-house guests of AYANA Resort and Spa and RIMBA Jimbaran Bali to skip the queue.

Thank you again for visiting us.

Best regards,

Manik Sudharsana

“A Wonderful Birthday experience at both Dava and the Rock Bar ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We booked the Dava -fine dining for dinner for my wife's birthday and arranged to watch the sunset at the Rock Bar about 5pm yesterday . We were blown avay by the amazing facilities the gardens and the extraordinary investment but more importantly by the fantastic staff that looked after us in both venues We were pleasantly surprised as they gave Christine birthday surprises and a little staff sing along at both drinks and then during dinner . So nicely presented by all the staff we were made to feel very special 4 beautiful red roses and a birthday card with personnal greetings from all the staff who met us to top off a little birthday cake and the live band playing our favourite songs WOW A STUNNING NIGHT TO REMEMBER Thanks to all at Ayana we will be back !

“Scenic view, good drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

While staying at Ayana we tried Rock Bar. Because we were guests of the hotel we had no problem to catch a table first row, provided you dine there. O.K. food, good cocktails. Mind that because this place is kind of big attraction it is being flooded by guests from outside before and during sunset.

“Over rated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Heard all about the rock bar and how cool it was. First would not take reservations. So stood in melting heat in line for over a hour. Next get seated and served by incompetent staff. Then paid expensive bill for a lack luster experience. Save your money and go somewhere else. Way more to see in Bali.

Dear ‘Twlu’,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback after visiting Rock Bar.

I do understand your concerns regarding our no-reservations policy as we do provide Priority Access for in-house guests of AYANA and RIMBA hotels. I apologize that after such a long wait, the service was not up to your expectations. I will share your feedback with the team so we can improve our service. I would also like to share with you that we now can take reservations for our Private Deck area which accommodates up to 8 people.

I hope to welcome you back for a better experience in the future, or I suggest an alternative venue for sunset at UNIQUE Rooftop Bar at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali, which does allow reservations and is also open for dinner.

Best regards,

Manik Sudharsana
