A trip to Bali is filled with lots of food, sun, sand and sea. Personally, it is the perfect location to unwind with the one you love and kick back as you appreciate the company you are with. To complete that perfect romantic adventure, we recommend booking a sunset dinner at one of the many restaurants that provide a view of the ocean. To help narrow down the selection, we picked out three of the most luxurious options that are not only Instagram-worthy but also an ideal location to appreciate the beauty of Bali as you sample its delicious fare.

Kaum – Potato Head Folk

Located in Seminyak, you can choose to enjoy the sunset on one of the daybeds at the Potato Head Beach Club as the sun sets, while sipping a pre-dinner cocktail. After, we recommend you treat your senses to the best that Indonesia has to offer with a meal at Kaum. Located on the second floor and overlooking the beach club, the restaurant will have you head over heels in love with its ambience, service and food. We could gush about the menu here but we would rather let our review of Kaum do all the talking.

Rock Bar — Ayana Resort & Spa

With an unobstructed view of the ocean and the perfect vantage point to catch the sunset, the Rock Bar, in Jimbaran, is another favourite on our list. Providing an unforgettable dining experience, the restaurant serves delicious Mediterranean inspired dishes which we had the pleasure of sampling. We suggest making a reservation at Rock Bar in advance, as the location can be popular with tourists and locals who wish to dine as the waves crash upon the rock formations below.

Woobar — W Hotel Bali 

Also found in Seminyak, is the relaxed watering hole called Woobar. Open daily, guests can opt for a poolside experience or savour the best of its tapas menu, by the beach. The menu is a nice mix of Asian and Western inspired fare such as a cold Vietnamese chicken salad and pulled pork empanadas. Other items on the menu are thin crust pizzas in a variety of flavours including Moroccan lamb and Parma ham with Asian pear. For dessert, one can choose between the Signature W Paletas or Mason Jar Desserts that will certainly be a fitting way to cap off the evening.
