Omnia , Bali, Indonesia
Hakkasan Group’s first rollout of Sin City’s Omnia club has just landed in Bali’s Bukit peninsula, conveniently alongside the first Sake no Hana outside of London. And, even amid the welter of high-end day clubs that have opened around Uluwatu of late, Omnia stands out.
NYC’s Rockwell and Singapore’s WOHA worked side by side on the spectacular clifftop site. Sake no Hana sits poised atop a spectacular double staircase, enfolded in an ironwood lattice. Below, an elegant bar space forms a transition between Japanese culinary precision and the sun, cocktails, day beds and DJs of Omnia proper. Designed with Instagram in mind, the Cube bar mesmerises. Custom glass beads and mirrored steel create a slab of pure form that hovers, transcendent, above the Indian Ocean, capturing and transmuting Bali’s celebrated light.
Set amid lush green wilderness, 100m above Uluwatu’s iconic swells, Omnia may be the group’s first foray into Indonesia, but it won’t be the last. A second site opens in Jakarta later this year with an Omnia nightclub, another Sake no Hana and a Hakkasan restaurant, while a hotel is underway in Uluwatu, too.
