Those who are regulars to Uluwatu’s dining and drinking scene must be familiar with the picturesque Sunset Cabana Bar at the five-star luxury Alila Villas Uluwatu. Continually spoiling guests with new experiences, the stunning venue elevates the art of drinking with a fresh library of cocktails inventively concocted by the resort’s liquid artisan, Wirawan.
Perched on the clifftop resort with unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean, the echoes of thrashing waves below and the magical Uluwatu sunset to behold, Sunset Cabana Bar has become one of the most iconic destinations in Bali for over a decade. As the primary liquid artist at the esteemed resort, Wirawan aims to provide guests with a multisensory drinking experience with his meticulously crafted creations.
“We want to create a multisensory drinking experience for our guests where all senses will be spoiled. This is reflected in drinks that have been uniquely crafted by Wirawan and presented in a creative way. Prepare to be surprised!” said Hemal Jain, General Manager, Alila Villas Uluwatu.
Wirawan drew inspiration for his signature creations right from the get-go. On his first day at Alila Villas Uluwatu, he spent hours sitting at Sunset Cabana Bar, immersing in the spellbinding views of the ocean vista and imagining himself on a boat deck sailing on an unexpected journey. This, combined with his appreciation for the richness of Indonesian and Balinese culture, resulted in his imaginative creations that will truly delight guests.
