Ku De Ta. Yes, now that this Bali chill out institution has opened a bar and restaurant of the same name atop Singapore’a building a la mod, the Marina Bay Sands, it’s time to revisit its roots and what made the place so well-known in the first place.
Kudeta Bali located in the Seminyak district has much to offer - An astounding view of the sun setting into the ocean, amidst an amber glow arising from the horizon, sexy house music blaring around the compound filled with beautiful people grazing on trendy light bites on sun beds at the deck. They’ve been open since 2000 and it’s changed quite a bit since then. Even my from my first visit in 2005 until now, Ku DeTa has reinvented itself oh so slightly to keep up with the times. And as a trendy hangout, it really fits the brief.
Mimosas and cocktails for the trendy set, completes the experience at the so hip it hurts lounge and beach club.
Noticed how I never mentioned the food? There’s a reason. They are BAD. The sushi/handrolls can take ages. Which is a puzzle. Since they don’t have to cook anything. The pizza is sloppy.
The actual sit down dining area serves better food. But somewhat overpriced for its quality. Something that also rings true for its Singapore counterpart. Well, at least we can say they are consistent?
