QuikSkoop™: The Rock Bar

This bar sounds so mythical the first time I heard of its exploits. It’s a bit tricky to find this bar at first because it’s located high on the hills of the shores of a further south of Jimbaran and yet there was only one road leading here. Ah I forgot to spare the story for my next posts in my travel blog : http://daytripswashbuckler.wordpress.com. Visit it from time to time for my travel experience and this one, about Bali, will come soon. Long story short, we took the path just right from the great swimming pool of Ayana Resort, a very prominent and luxurious romantic Bali resort. You should consider coming here even though just for a few hours trip. Next, you’ll see the elevator to the downside of the cliff just beside the chapel. The elevator which I forgot the specific term of it but let’s just call it that way, can only bring up to three persons at one time plus one attendant that operates the machinery.

As you can see on the picture above, we need to queue first just to get down there. You can see The Rock Bar which was built upon a magnificent concept. Open air with a view straight to the sea and with the best view of sunset. You may read later about sunsets in Bali on my visits to Kuta beach and Dreamland in Pecatu.

On the picture down there you can see the vast, beautiful horizon that indulges the visitors of Ayana Resort and in this case, The Rock Bar. Too bad I didn’t get the sunset picture but at least you notice why people keeps on coming there no matter how far the place is.

Since it’s only a bar, they only serve drinks and since I’m not into alcohol, luckily, they have juices and mocktails. I’ll tell you later about the menu but the price range starts from IDR 50,000. It’s pretty expensive for juices or mocktails but that’s what you get from a place as extravagant like this. Mostly, the patrons come from Japan since they really promote a lot about this resort, notably in one of Jakarta office buildings that contains many Japanese companies. There were also, of course, visitors from the West.

The drinks were okay and we’re also provided with snacks. As for the service, they’re very polite and helpful. Not to mention that the waitresses also wear sexy dresses, one thing that makes certain people comfortable. Don’t ask me about it though. LOL.

The ambience also was great. Aside from the sounds of the waves and people chattering, they also play lounge or nu-jazz music which also very in-line with the concept like this. Though that time, a singer played live with only a guitar, happens to be a foreigner too, plays a frustrating ballad songs which reminds me instantly of funerals. Not a good choice indeed. We need a classy music but keep it as subtle as you can because we’re there to have a relaxing evening, Rock Bar.

Surely, this is a place that you must visit. A romantic honeymoon would also be recommended as you can travel around the vast area of the hotel and you’ll be amazed of what they have to offer and surely, making your spouse content though at the cost of your wallet. Haha.. Anyway, I’ll tell you later in my other blog about it, but meanwhile, enjoy the sea, the sunset, and the drinks there!

TGA Milestone: Concerns, Thoughts, and Side Jobs

Hello, my dear readers. I’d like to announce few things regarding my blog. You see, it’s been a while since I last posted something but there are some reasons behind that.

First of all, I’m now really into my new blog which actually hasn’t been yet published on a grand opening scale but you can actually read it a bit in:
>> http://daytripswashbuckler.wordpress.com
or here
>> http://travelpod.com/members/pokamamil

It’s quite a time consuming process and it’s not quite finished yet but you’re very welcomed to visit the sites.

Secondly, I received several concerns about my judgment for every places that I visited especially regarding to the scores. It’s only my thought, but I’m actually considering to drop the scoring since it’s a bit misleading.

Why’s that?

It’s actually because of my nature. I have actually introduced myself and my characters all over my writings but it seems that when it comes to scoring, people still think that either I gave the score too low or they’re discouraged by my scores. Well, the place and the food may be decent for most people, but perhaps I was a bit harsh in judging and that’s making people scared to come to the place. So it’s still a thought, but I’m considering it seriously.

And finally, I wish to also change a bit about the way I’m wrapping my writings. I might add more information there, such as for instance, Recommended Menu or Credit Card Availability or something like that. Plus I’ll improve my posts with links for things I deem necessary.

Perhaps that’s it for now, so please wait for my next posts and of course, I shall return with an improved version and definitely, still harsh as ever.
