SOS Rooftop Lounge & Bar
This is a stylish and chic place with sensational views. The three or four times I have gone here have always been nothing short of impressive. Something so sophisticated is not so common in Bali.
Service is responsive and punctual, the food is of a high quality and the atmosphere is quite swish. Somewhat surprising is the fact that the crowds vary: sometimes busy with little room to sit and other times a little empty. (Worst case scenario is that you enjoy a fabulous view of the sunset, with delish food and cocktails, then move on to a more “happening” place – there are so many nearby in Seminyak).
The cocktails aren’t the cheapest but who cares when the view and overall ambience is mostly priceless.
If you get peckish, the tapas menu is a little limited but the cocktails are so good you’ll have to remind yourself to slow down – which could be why they deliver complimentary olives and nuts to your table upon arrival, which is a nice touch.
Situated on the 4th floor, rooftop of the Anantara Hotel in Seminyak, this signature lounge is arguably the highest point in Seminyak . It’s highly recommended for sunset drinks or to just enjoy the day or night vista up and down the coastline. No matter what the time, the view is quite breathtaking.
Novel cocktails, tapas, grill and seafood are all served to perfection while guests can recline on oversized daybeds and listen to the latest in DJ choices.
Free WI-FI is available. Prices are expensive for Bali, but still cheaper than Australian prices.

HINT: If you’re travelling as a family leave the kids behind with a babysitter when you visit here because it’s ultra chic and probably not so child-friendly.
HINT 2: Note the opening hours! The first time I attended, the SOS bar was closed as we had arrived too early. No hardship though, we enjoyed a wine or 2 at the poolside bar, ground floor, overlooking the beach. Bliss!!
