Incredible place! The drinks and the view are amazing. The night passes before you as you listen to great music and watch the sunset.

This bar has to be the top 5 Must-See places in entire Bali! Why?

- It is literally located, if not, mounted on a large rock. Thus, the Rock Bar. Have you been to a bar on a rock?
- I recommend to be a hotel guest at Ayana so you can go into the 'priority line' and pass the long waiting line.
- There's a cable car that takes you from the top of the cliff to the bottom that leads to the Rock Bar. This 1-minute ride is another romantic highlight of the Bar.
- Best views around sunset, but the wait in line can be extremely long.
- Night visits were a bliss. We had to come here twice.
- Staff was amazing. They even made a special honeymoon treat - for being a sweet couple? I think it was because I tried my hardest to speak beginner Balinese and Bahasa Indonesia, but who knows? Practice your Indonesian!
- My favorite seats: at the bar! The bar glows and you can get better treatment by being nice to the bartenders and simply having a nice conversation with them.
- Cocktails were about USD 12 a piece. This is comparable to my hometown in Los Angeles. You can't beat this price with a beautiful vantage point of the ocean and the cliff-side.
- There was a long list of cocktails. I ordered my usual favorite, bourbon with mint julep, and loved it.
- If you're an Ayana guest, visit the Infinity Pool that is located next to the Rock Bar. It is a totally missed hidden gem. You can order drinks while you sip in the Inifinity Pool and enjoy the sunset or anytime of the day.
- No reservations taken due to the popular attraction. Be a hotel guest at Ayana and no wait guaranteed.

You should not visit Bali and miss out on a trip to the Rock Bar. It sits on the southern tip of Bali overlooking the Indian Ocean and sunsets are fabulous. I really enjoyed this bar and would say that it is a must see. Fortunately for us, we had friends who were staying at the Ayana so we had absolutely no problem getting in. Couple of tips, get there by 4pm and hopefully its not raining. Bring sun block and shades if you are the sort that need that. Order drinks only with crushed ice in them if not everything will get warm really quickly. I enjoyed the caipirinhas there for most part. Also, Ayana has got special seats available for hotel guests. I would highly recommend that you stay at Ayana on the day that you want to visit because it just makes it worthwhile. No point visiting the rock bar and getting horrible seats on a lower deck with a poor view just because you're not a hotel guest. Best idea, stay there on your first night and move to seminyak for the remaining of your trip to Bali. Oh I also visited Kudeta and trust me Ayana is much much better. Distance between Ayana in Jimbaran and Seminyak is about 1 hour tops.

The drinks are good but the rock bar at Ayana is really about the experience.

We don't drink too much but we quite enjoyed the experience from atop the cliff, it was quite a view too.
