Pasir Putih Beach Club
Menjangan Dynasty Resort is proud to present its signature ‘Pasir Putih Beach Club & Bar’. Open daily from 6.30am until late, the Beach Club welcomes walk-in visitors as well as guests of the tented resort at Banyuwedang Bay in Northwest Bali.
Echoing the sustainable architecture of the Resort’s impressive communal structures, the Beach Club’s restaurant & bar is housed within an open-sided bamboo edifice. Here, a striking framework of bamboo columns and beams creates an interesting play of vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines, which twist, intensify and surprise under the organic curves of the soaring ‘alang-alang’ grass roof. Furnishings also showcase the natural aesthetic beauty of bamboo, introducing hanging lanterns, bamboo chairs, and blond-wood tables with a distressed-antique finish. This simple rustic style has been carefully chosen to ensure that nothing detracts from the spectacular vista of mountains, mangroves, the gentle waters of the bay, and Pasir Putih ‘white sand’ Beach.
The casual barefoot elegance spills out on to the sand, offering shady retreats in the form of cosy bamboo cabanas and sun-splashed beanbags on the beach, complemented by ambient music and a blissful carefree vibe. Adjacent to the bar is a 32.5 sqm beachside swimming pool fed by an ornamental waterfall. Guests can also enjoy swimming in the calm turquoise sea or have fun kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding, using the facilities of the on-site water sports centre.
Offering all-day dining, the restaurant and its open kitchen is headed by Frenchman, Philippe L’Obry, the Resort’s Food & Beverage Manager, who has created a tempting à la carte menu of Western and Asian cuisine. Beachside delights include salads, soups, design-your-own pasta dishes, grilled chicken, beef tenderloin, and classics such as sweet and sour fish, nasi goreng, assorted satay, beef rendang, and pad thai. Delicious desserts include a passion fruit and lime crème brûlée. Furthermore, a daily ‘specials’ board enables the chefs to take advantage of the seasonal, fresh local produce, which is purchased in accordance with harvest and market availability.
The easygoing, seaside spirit of Pasir Putih is exemplified with a Beach Club menu of ‘Tapas to Share’ promoting tasty bites such as tiger prawn skewers, bbq chicken wings, bruschetta, calamari ‘chipirons’, crispy mushrooms, spring rolls and more. A comprehensive drinks list offers fresh juices and detox juice blends, imported spirits, wines by the glass, mocktails and innovatively-named cocktails such as ‘Pasir Putih Cobbler’, ‘Menjangan Dynasty Margarita’, and ‘Prince of Pasir Putih’, all of which are served with a smile by a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ team of safari-suited staff.
