BALI INTERIORS- LA BRIZA

From the owners of La Favela, La Plancha & La Laguna comes one of their most ambitious projects so far, La Brisa.

BALI INTERIORS- LA BRIZA BALI

A shipwreck-themed beach club that has been styled to perfection. They have taken their time to build this place and it certainly shows. The palm trees that grow through the buildings, and the trees in the garden needed time to take root and grow. If they had been in a hurry, the place would not look nearly half as amazing as it now does.

The amount of detail is beyond insane. Everything has been thought out. I mean everything. The furniture chosen, the colour scheme, the pictures on the walls, the rope that wraps every little piece of cord so that no plastic is seen anywhere. The real shells left around for you to discover with child-like joy. It’s like stepping into Robinson Crusoe story where you can chill, swim, eat and play. They are so good at creating something different, but with so much character, that they should be giving lessons in it!

I couldn’t be happier that it is in my little village of Canggu. Since it has opened, it has been difficult to find me anywhere else, specially as it includes a kid’s playground (winning!), a garden section with cool sofas, and places to eat and hang out…. not to mention the swimming pool and the front veranda overlooking the ocean. The club looks as beautiful during the day as it does at night.

The interiors and exteriors of this place are truly remarkable. Anyone with a love of interiors should check this place out. It’s another must visit when coming to Bali.

CABINA

 

If you had to choose the Instagram capital of the world, it would have to be Bali. No matter where you go, there are people having their photo taken with various backdrops, iconic walls or sipping coconuts and cocktails. And how can you blame them when the interiors and exteriors that keep appearing in Bali are this good! Cabina is about to become the new Instagram sensation, but it's so much more than that. It will be a place of choice not only for its beautiful aesthetics, but also for its incredibly delicious food and great service. Am I being selfish for wanting to keep it a secret?

I’d gone past Cabina a few times and didn’t go in until a couple of weeks after it opened. The white-holed brick wall and rim of cacti are extremely inviting. But I don’t think I was prepared to see such a beautifully designed beach club. Cabina is a mix of Palm Springs and The Slow (hotel in Canggu). The designer and owners of Cabina have put a great deal of thought into everything. From their branding, to food, to decor and, of course, service.

The first time I went to Cabina I went for dinner with quite fussy eaters (no gluten, vegetarian, no dairy, etc etc). Thank goodness they cater for people who can only eat lettus (kidding, not kidding!). My friends were so impressed with the food and so was I. For dessert, we had a sort of deconstructed lemon pie and it was insanely good. I’m still thinking about it weeks later. When I came back to take the photos, I had some delicious breakfast as well. These guys certainly know what they are doing! It’s not easy to find a Beach Club that can do everything so well, but so far they have excelled at everything! Amazing food? Check! Amazing ambience? Check! Amazing service? Check! Amazing music? Check!

And I haven’t even talked about the pool area. The restaurant opens up to a great big swimming pool sitting underneath some huge palm trees with floaties of all kinds, and sun beds to chill out and work on your tan. They also have a small kiddy pool which is great to take the little ones too!
Soon they will be opening a co-working space upstairs. So seriously, can this place get any better? Hurry, go there before the word spreads about this place and the invasion of the insta-bloggers begin!

There are very few places that intrigue me before I go and see them. Panama Kitchen and Pool is one of those places. Their branding is very good and consistent, so I was expecting great things.

 

Well, I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s begin with their food. Everything we ate was not only delicious, but actually it surpassed our expectations. The juices were really yummy, the pulled porked burger was a revelation, and the tacos and their unique version of Fish and Chips were both brilliant!

But what we really need to talk about is how beautiful the place is. While we were there, not to take these photos but to simply enjoy ourselves, there was a line the whole time we were there - I’m not kidding! -  of people waiting to take photos in the very photogenic white Santorini-like building. I don’t blame them! The structure is beautiful and oh so Instagramable! The white concrete with the beautiful staircase (a favourite with the bloggers), and the kitchen window are really stunning and very unique in Bali.

The Pool area is really nicely furnished with a 50’s retro look. Red and white strippy deck seats and teal wooden lounge chairs dressed the garden, giving it a Palm Springs look. The pool has a whole shallow area that’s perfect for kids. Even the shower is beautifully thought out with its round shape of hollow white bricks, it gives privacy to the user but maintains the mid century aesthetic.

And then is the main restaurant area, a white wooden beach shack that even has a front porch. The furnishing of this area is mainly rattan and bamboo stools, chairs and sofas with leafy tropical cushions. The beach shack ceiling has gorgeous huge skylights allowing plenty of light. The inside is minimally decorated with a few colourful prints and large pot plants. The big open windows overlook a manicured garden adding colour to the space.

 

And last but not least, is the actual “shop front” of Panama. I’m not going to lie, it’s a bit strange, as it’s a bar that kind of looks like an ice-cream shop. Yet, after being inside, the front kind of ties all of the mid century elements together: the colours, the vibe and that Palm Springs look that they achieve so successfully. Panama really is not to be missed, but be warned, there may be a line of people trying to get their Instagram portrait inside!
