There's nothing more splendid that taking a little refreshment at the end of the day at a beach bar. So it's with some delight to discover Bamboo Bar and Lounge on Mertasari Beach in Sanur. This delightful establishment is part of the Prama Sanur Beach hotel, a hostelry that has graced these shores for almost 40 years. The bamboo construction designed by renowned architect Ibu Wiwik is a perfect structure befitting its absolute beachside location. Light and airy with a spacious central bar that can accommodate up to 50 patrons with seating for another 50 scattered about. The view to the horizon is sublime, especially at sunset; the beer is cold, the snacks tasty and the service impeccable. A large selection of cocktails is on offer with their specialty being their Arak Bamboo cocktail served in a triangular glass that sits comfortably on a bed of ice in a fish bowl-like container. They offer a good range of coffees, teas and liqueurs and their wine selection, if not extensive, is certainly adequate. The Bamboo Bar & lounge is exactly that, a bar and it doesn't pretend to be anything else. Food is rather low on the priority stakes although they do serve a variety of snacks and their pizzas are fresh and tasty.
