Cocoon Restaurant Bar Beach Club

Having established itself early on as Bali’s go-to destination for specialty events and late night extravaganzas, Cocoon Beach Club is also the island’s culinary oasis for leisurely mornings and satiating afternoons.

Bali is chock full of eclectic restaurants, each one more seductive than the next, Cocoon Beach Club checks all the boxes whether you need a relaxing spot for family Sunday brunch or a spontaneous late afternoon rendez-vous brimming with romance and a decent glass of red.

The last thing a family needs whilst trying to enjoy a relaxed late-morning or early-afternoon meal together is a stuffy, air-conditioned hotel dining room. At Cocoon, classic brunch and Asian-inspired lunch offerings are served daily on an al fresco patio or within the open-air dining room amongst generous banquettes topped with comfortable pillows.

For a sophisticated twist on the early evening sunset, why not spice things up a bit in a chic gazebo or inviting daybed on Cocoon’s legendary poolside deck. Make sure to pack your favourite bathers as Cocoon’s organically shaped swimming pool will surely beckon for a refreshing dip. The relaxing sounds of Morcheeba, Thievery Corporation and Gypsy Kings create an irresistibly romantic mood.

Editor’s Picks: Top New Dishes This Season

Crispy duck has quite the cult following in Bali, but there’s no reason to drive all the way up to Ubud now that Cocoon’s culinary team has upgraded the decadent delight. Chef Nick’s Roasted Crispy Skin Duck is the perfect anecdote following a late night in Seminyak or to satisfy a hankering for Asian-inspired comfort food. Grilled pineapple adds just the right note of sweet while spice lovers will get a kick out of his Thai red curry sauce.

There’s nothing sexier than a trio of Cocoon’s Seared King Scallops served poolside with a glass of something sparkling. Utilising Bali’s abundance of exotic tamarind, colourful dollops of tamarind coulis add a unique island nuance to the classic seafood dish.

Turn the kiddos on to something a little more gourmand than your average pizza. Combining chorizo salami, artichoke, eggplant and feta into wood-fired, thin-crust bliss, Cocoon’s Chorizo Salami is our all-time favourite from the restaurant’s legendary grazing menu.
