Coming to The Sand was a bucket list item for my 2nd Bali trip and it did not disappoint! Delicious cocktails and really great staff! Playtime on the swings and in the water was especially fun, and their legendary puppies are the sweetest ever, even...if you don't have a plate of food on the table!More

We stayed at The Waterfront which was walking distance from The Sand and we ended up going here everyday, sometimes twice a day. The smoothie bowl was delicious so was the mixed juice and other food. Nice music and great service. Great place to relax...and have a bite to eat or awesome cocktail.More

The decor and chilled vibe is great, the tide was out when we went for dinner and drinks so didn't take advantage of the swing/hammocks. The menu is small and offers mainly "normal" food and a few local dishes. We ordered drinks first and waited...quite some time. One was delivered and the other took more time to come. The lady just delivered the drink and left again, even though we were ready to order food. We went up to order instead, no problem at all, but it's confusing if it's table service or not. I ordered the chicken curry, very bland, no flavour or punch. We went to Le Pirate before for drinks, we wish we just stayed there. I never usually leave reviews but feel this place has definitely been way too hyped up on social media and here. Would like to feedback the reality rather than the glammed up Instagram photosMore

We spend one day on Ceningan and we decide to go to this place. The staff was really nice, one of the best of our trip. The food and cocktails were amazing. They have different hammocks and swings on the water to take your picture....Definitely, we recommend this place. Thank you so much !!More

I walk up and down the ceningan stretch as my villa was all the way at the end of ceningan island. The Sand remains the only other place I like to hang out at, other than my awesome villa. They dont play ridiculously loud and...annoying music, which was the biggest attraction. Most other bars were hip hopping and rapping away. And theyre right on the edge of the sand bank that has maximum knee high water when high tide. I loved wading out when the tide was going out in the late afternoon. Walk all the way to the middle of the sand bank and you'll feel the magic. Great service, great food (i had the smashed avo with tomatoes, a strawberry milkshake and a coconut during my visits there). The dogs there are the besssstt say hi to them for me <3More

The atmosphere is nice and quiet, It has a great spot to view the sea and feeling the breeze. I come for brunch and still quite empty so I could enjoy reading the book. But, for the food (I ordered a chicken dish) is too...salty and the veggies aren't fresh. The staff is helpful and friendly!More

The place itself is beautiful. The concept is cute, BUT the staff is unbelievably slow. I have never experienced such a slow-motion like in The Sand. Had to wait for ages for the staff to show up. I ordered frozen daiquiri and it came half...melted, the food was disappointing as well. It is definitely missing a management..More

View from the bar/restaurant is great. Food is good but not reaching Michelin-stars 😉 From 2 to 4 and 6 to 8pm there is happy hour! Enjoy

I love this place so much: from the seating to the music to food to the nice staff to the gorgeous, gorgeous sunset view...this place has it. If you're looking for a chill place to watch the sunset, find yourself a hammock, grab a dragon...colada or a Bintang, and prepare to chill. I went here four times in the four days that I stayed on Nusa Ceningan, and I would happily live here forever if I could. 🙌🏿More
