The World’s Coolest New Bar

Posted in Luxury Hotels, Luxury Lifestyle with tags , , , , , on December 18, 2009 by The Goodie Bag

The world’s coolest new bar has just opened at the ultra-luxe Ayana Resort & Spa in Bali.  To get to the Rock Bar, towering 46 feet above the crashing waves, you have to take a special lift that traverses the face of a dramatic craggy seaside cliff.  There are uninterrupted, 360-degree views on all sides in a setting any Bond villain would love.  Designed by Yasuhiro Koichi of Japan‘s Design Studio SPIN, it’s an enviable feat of engineering, architecture and mixology.  Designed to ensure maximum seclusion for every guest, the Ayana’s 78 free-standing, cliff-top luxury villas are set in traditional Balinese compounds with private pools surrounded by tropical gardens.

Burj Al Arab – Dubai

Upon entering from your private elevator, you’ll see a rotating four-post canopy bed which allows you to keep an eye on every piece of exquisite mahogany furniture in the two-story Royal Suite. But the $19,000 CAD a night accommodation isn’t just for staying in and enjoying your own private cinema or the Hermes bathroom products. If you decide to venture out of your palace, two chauffeurs are waiting with your own Rolls-Royce. There’s also a private helicopter in case you feel like an evening spin over Dubai.
