With a name that means traditional Balinese wooden bells used to gather the people in the neighbourhood for special moments and ceremonies, Kulkul beach house recently reopened its doors to welcome guests to an idyllic setting and curated menu. Situated on the pristine white Nusa Dua beach, Kulkul exudes a relaxing ambience, with plush cabanas, 12-metre adults-only swimming pool, and a chill mix of house and Mediterranean music.
This time around, the beach house brings a greater focus on a zero-waste approach to dining and drinking. The all-day menu comprises a wide range of vegetarian and vegan options, on top of the traditional comfort dishes and seafood specialities. Guests can savour casual light bites like the seafood croquettes with beetroot salad and wasabi aioli; the signature About Pumpkin dish; and the smoked salmon macarons with squid ink and sour cream.
The homemade sorbets offer something refreshing with flavours like coconut, raspberry and strawberry. As for the sweet ending, the decadently rich chocolate tart with passionfruit is a must-try. In addition to the scrumptious bites, Kulkul also features a drink menu that highlights creative cocktails that are made with meticulous methods. The bar highlights N20, concocted from locally sourced arak, coffee and honey; and Negritzer with Campari, sweet vermouth, angostura bitters and sparkling wine.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, guests can get lost in the ambience with live DJ performances. Grab your choice of cocktail, lounge around by the pool, while enjoying the ocean view with ambient music and everything great that Kulkul has to offer.
