When Bali’s heat has become so unbearable that just standing in the shade makes you melt away, a refreshing ice cream may just be the only remedy! Luckily, Bali has the perfect solution for a quick cool down. We’ve put together a list of tasty gelato, ice cream and frozen yoghurt joints that will help you survive this super summer weather!
1. Mozaic Beach Club
Really, Mozaic Beach Club is the ultimate place to beat the heat. It’s a ‘cool down combo’ in this Batu Belig hotspot: they have an awesome Gelato Secrets Ice Cream Van stationed out front, a lush swimming pool to dip into and a range of amazing cocktails to wash it all down! We suggest booking a daybed and really getting settled in, making the most of sunny weather and beach views.
2. WaLa Gelato
With an array of homemade gelatos, this adorable, retro-style gelato house is a super spot when you’re hitting the shores of Jimbaran. Found in Le Meridien, with an open style and lots of natural light, WaLa gives off that perfect summer vibe. We suggest trying out their espresso flavour and also their delicious eclairs!
There’s nothing cooler (literally and metaphorically) than liquid nitrogen! This ultramodern take on ice cream is nearly alchemy, as fresh eggs, cream and real food ingredients are mixed around in a bowl as the nitrogen is poured on top, freezing the mixture so fast that ice crystals can’t even form. What’s left? An unbelievably smooth result. [Check for their availability before going.
4. Gelato Secrets
The irony thing, Gelato Secrets is no secret anymore – word of their deliciousness has spread! From since they started as a small startup, focusing on fresh, natural ingredients to make their ice cream, Gelato Secrets has expanded to many branches on the island: Petitenget (Seminyak), Ubud and Sanur. With creamy gelato, fresh sorbets, homemade cones, gelato cakes and other sweets on offer, you’ll love jumping into one of their adorable branches.
5. K’dewatan Bakery & Gelato
To quench your thirst for something sweet in this never-ending heat of Bali, K’dewatan Bakery can be found in the Ubud Adventure Centre, just a few kilometers from the heart of Ubud. Tied together with Bali Adventure Tours, it’s the perfect treat after some white water rafting, trekking or cycling. The gelato comes in 15 enticing flavours, some of which come depending on the seasons of the fruits. You can expect different flavours on the shelf weekly. Why not stop for a coffee and stock up on delicious bread whilst you’re at it too.
