Nestled against the shores of Kuta Beach, Hard Rock Hotel Bali sits on an impressive three-hectare property right in the heart of Bali’s entertainment and shopping district.
Offering Hard Rock’s signature of limitless energy, unparalleled creativity and quality service, Hard Rock Hotel Bali is a perfect place for couples to romance themselves silly on an island paradise, all the while soaking up a relaxed atmosphere that celebrates 40 years of rock and roll culture.
Each day guests are greeted with a welcoming wink by friendly staff who bid you adieu by chirping “have a rockin day!” True music fans can be found wandering the hotel’s main entrance as the walls around Centerstage Bar are adorned with notable memorabilia such as Gloria Estefan’s dress from her Live For Loving You video, Lenny Kravitz’s leather covered guitar, a signed hat by Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, a belt worn by Michael Jackson on his Bad Tour and artsy trinkets from the likes of Elton John and The Beatles.
The Hard Rock Hotel Bali features 418 tribute rooms and suites fit for a rock star. The walls are adorned with images, memorabilia and icons reflecting the revolution that changed the face of music, fashion and arts, celebrating artistes from the 50’s to late 90’s.
Suite amenities include plush king sized bed, relaxing lounge, oversized bath and shower, mini bar, espresso machine, Bose Bluetooth Speaker and IPTV Entertainment System with free movies on demand. Honeymooners step into their suite with a wow, greeted by a bedspread topped with a heart made of rose petals and swoon-worthy bouquet.
If you’re looking to rest and relax with your lover skip down to the Rock Spa for the wildly romantic Couples Indulgence. The unforgettable 150 minute therapy features a relaxing 90 minute Balinese massage, 40 minute body scrub and calming 20 minute aroma bath where you’ll float together in a tub with rose petals and orchids while sipping on sweet ginger honey tea.
Lounge lizards love the Hard Rock’s lagoon-like pool, the largest free-form swimming pool in Kuta. Featuring a unique Sand Island, it is a sunbathing paradise which also serves as a stage for outdoor performances and volleyball matches.
There are 22 poolside cabanas available that provide a cool, private retreat from the sun. Equipped with tables, chairs and day-beds, the cabanas also allow you to order cocktails, beer and wine served from Splash Bistro…a perfect thirst quenching for the sweet snacks provided in your complimentary picnic basket.
If you’re the sort of couple that loves to play dress up be sure to book a Paparazzi Photoshoot. You’ll be assigned your own private photographer for an hour who can shoot you by the hotel’s iconic Rocking Guitar sculpture, a romantic moment at sunset, or my favourite, a traditional Balinese wedding costume. I highly suggest the latter as it’s seriously fun to skip around town dressed like King and Queen. The best spot on the property to shoot your royal lewk is at the Balinese Temple at the far end of the lagoon.
A stone’s throw away from the beach, Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver is the hotel’s best spot to enjoy a romantic dinner. The restaurant is rustic with a Jamie twist and echoes Bali’s history, featuring inspiring work by local artists. From the sunny street-facing terrace to the large bar and bustling open kitchen, it’s one of Kuta’s most buzzed about restaurants. If you need a beach break chow down on a spicy sausage post-surf pizza, plump pumpkin stuffed ravioli or share Jamie’s classic meat plank topped with fennel salami, mortadella, bresaola, mini mozzarella, pickles, olives and crunchy rainbow slaw.
If you’re the sort of gent that likes to surprise your sweetheart, keep your Cabana Romantic Dinner booking a secret. After enjoying a cocktail at sunset skip down to a choir of cabana’s and wow your special little someone with a fine feast perched over the pool. You’ll arrive to a petite space romantically decorated with a series of rose petal hearts which set a perfect mood for a finger-licking-good set menu featuring Ahi Tuna with Avocado, Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella with Pesto, Char Grilled Australian Beef Sirloin and sweet Strawberry Shortcake.
At night live music fans gather at Centerstage, the hotels lively lobby bar which features a large central bar that incorporates a performance stage where local bands rock out each evening. Complete with stage rigging, concert lighting, TV monitors and a huge video screen, all surrounded by Hard Rock memorabilia. The energetic bar boasts a million dollar audio visual system which packs a 100,000 watt charge into the live performance every night.
