Pererenan Beach Development Continues

The project to connect Pererenan Beach with Echo Beach continues daily. When I first reported on the development project there were a few dozen massive rocks moving into place.

A couple of months later a walking trail was being formed:

Now there’s red brick finish work underway, and across the large stream you can see the concrete bulwark that will support the future walking bridge:

The future marriage of Echo Beach and Pererenan Beach is a bright one indeed.

If there is one constant here in Bali, it’s that of dynamic change. Trying to capture a particular “neighborhood” is at best a blurry snapshot, as cafes pop up, villas and shops appear, and the landscape is suddenly, almost magically different.

A Cliff, a Club, an amazing Design

A formula for success in the club-making business is:
— find a magnificent cliff that’s not too far away from the crowds
— spend ridiculous amounts of money and time creating an impossible perch for the bar
— don’t cut corners on great sound and lighting systems
— add some chill-out spots
— add a swanky swimming pool
— and then top it all off with awesome food and drink options

The “bar” is set very high in Bali for beach clubs, but bars situated on cliffs are a breed unto themselves.

The newest and perhaps the most outrageous is OMNIA Dayclub Bali.
