Vacationers in Bali have a new place to hang out at the first park-themed rooftop bar and restaurant Above Eleven Bali opens at the Movenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali hotel.

Offering a unique Peruvian Japanese menu complemented by striking sunset views over Jimbaran Bay, the new concept restaurant features a quirky maze that leads diners through from the entrance to a generous dining space. A contemporary park vibe then merges with lush greenery and sleek design touches and a choice of indoor and al fresco options for casual drinks and dining.

Complementing the main restaurant, a green garden tunnel opens onto a funky offshoot named Gramercy Park – a chic additional space housing a trendy food-truck style cocktail and spirits bar named after New York’s fashionable upscale restaurant quarter. 

“Movenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali is one of our newest properties in Asia, so we are delighted to be able to extend the guest experience we are renowned for at Above Eleven Bali, said Andrew Langdon, senior vice president Asia and chief development officer, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. 

The kitchen is in hands of Chef Renzo Vachelli offering a choice of authentic Nikkei cuisine to the menu. The dishes come in colourful presentations and exciting flavours that reflect the Japanese influence on Peruvian food culture dating back more than a century. 

Adding to the sophisticated appeal, Above Eleven Bali serves an impressive list of cocktails, some inspired by the Peruvian Japanese menu, others more tropical or classic. Good music is another mainstay with live DJs on rotation every night, as well as occasional special entertainment line-ups. 

“Since the opening of our resort earlier this year, the aim has been always to welcome guests to experience a stay that is fresh, interesting and enjoyable. Above Eleven Bali has all three of these elements rolled into one,” said Mr. Horst Walther-Jones, general manager of Movenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali.
