This first of its kind event took place on 10th Novemberat one of the world’s most iconic sunset destinations – Rock Bar at AYANA Resort and Spa BALI. Located on natural rocks 46 feet above the Indian Ocean at the foot of AYANA’s towering cliffs, the innovative open-top bar is Bali’s most glamorous sunset and after-dark destination. On Thursday evening, as the sun melted into the ocean, a group of 30 electrified dancers surprised guests with a secret flash mob style performance. The unsuspecting crowds’ night was brightened by a unique performance in celebration of the start of the #FestiveSeaSun!

“This year we are putting the sea and sun into the festive period,” explains AYANA’s General Manager, Clive Edwards. “We have a great program of festivities at AYANA Resort and Spa BALI and RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA, and we couldn’t think of a better, or more fun way to light up the start of #FestiveSeaSun than with 30 electrified dancers!”

Stretching across Rock Bar, the unique performance was the first of its kind for the Bali bar, which has been awarded a top ten spot in CNN’s ‘World’s 50 Best Beach Bars’. Leading out onto the DJ’s private rock, the mob’s performance continued with rockets, pyrotechnics, a spectacular fireworks and the official lighting of AYANA’s unmissable #FestiveSeaSun signage!


Rock Bar was opened in July 2009 at AYANA Resort and Spa BALI. The bar was designed by Yasuhiro Koichi (Design Studio SPIN, Tokyo), with glass artist Seiki Torige creating the stunning glass features including the bar itself, in which he used thousands of layers of recycled glass canes. Expansions occurred in August 2010 and September 2015.

Designer Koichi’s signature style is evident in the use of traditional materials, motifs and colors, which are given a contemporary feel, with cutting-edge lighting and clean lines. The bar is open to the elements with nothing to block the fresh sea air and the changing colors of the sky above. Jutting from the cliff face, hundreds-of-years-old crystallized rocks add natural glitter to this spectacular venue.

Rock Bar’s wine list features premium labels and an extensive range of top-shelf Aperitifs and Bitters, Sherry and Port, Scotch and Single Malts, Cognac and Liqueurs. The cocktail list includes more than 40 classic and contemporary creations designed by international bar consultant Sebastien Bonnefoi. The Martini selection was devised by Maestro Laval Lim-Hon, who has mixed cocktails during his 30+-year career for celebrities and royalty including Prince Ranier and Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, Liza Minelli, Shirley MacLaine and Clint Eastwood.
