Beachwalk Gentrifies Kuta Beach

Beachwalk Soft-Opens on Jalan Pantai Kuta, Bali

(5/13/2012) Beachwalk – a Sahid Kuta Lifestyle Resort is coming to life on Kuta’s popular beachfront. Occupying 3.7 hectares of land along a 250-meter stretch of beach-facing Jalan Pantai Kuta, shops and restaurants are now opening on what is destined to become a Mecca for shopping, dining and entertainment in Bali.

The retail and lifestyle centered complex is, according to its developers, architecturally inspired by the gentle contours of the rice terraces. An eco-friendly, low-rise design is characterized by a traditional alang-alang thatched roof, recycled hardwoods, and an open-air walkway - all cooled by natural sea breezes.

Inviting the outdoors inside - energy saving is also achieved through the integration of open spaces filled with tropical plants, a musical fountain and refreshing waterways accented by glass retail pods that blend with the environment. Manicured gardens border alfresco dining decks, while a central stage provides an exciting venue for live performances and special events.

Beachwalk visitors will have a choice of almost 200 sophisticated retail stores and eateries. The shops range from world-renowned designer brands to the trendy local labels, offering merchandise ranging from luxury clothing and accessories, to bohemian beach wear, and a number of stores presenting Balinese arts, crafts and souvenirs. Anchor tenants at the mall include XXI Cineplex – a nationally known theatre chain and SATU, a multi-brand boutique that houses the creations of Bali-based designers. Moeda also offers collections by Bali’s designers.

The Eat & Eat Food Court serves Indonesian classic dishes such as bebek betutu, nasi goreng babat and mie kepiting. Other branded food and beverage outlets include Bali Deli; Kitchenette offering galettes, crêpes and salads; Luna Negra with a menu of delicious Italian cuisine; and Sienna Café operated by Bali’s iconic Ku De Ta.

Other international designer brand shops and F&B outlets that will be introduced to Bali at the new beachwalk are: Armani Jeans, Boss Sports, Furla, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace Jeans, Diva, GAP, Gaudi, Mango, New Look, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius, (X) S, M, L, Y3, The Face Shop, Yves Rocher, Travelogue, Rimowa, Buffalo Wings & Rings, Café Sienna, Coconut Joe’s, Dairy Queen, Fish & Co, Johnny Rockets, Kihana, Luna Negra, Pazia Café, Rollaas Café, Tapeo Tapas Bar, wowcow, ELC, Gingersnaps, Playskool, Staccato, Urban Icon, and Watch World.

Additionally, beachwalk provides a dedicated Kids’ Area – Miniapolis Bali, with its own Play Zone, Amazing Walk, Water Play, and Cheeky Monkey Day Care facility. This area has been designed so children can participate in safe play and supervised activities, while parents have the freedom to shop and dine. Further family attractions include the Cloth Museum by Bin House, while exciting musical fountain show and dance performances can be watched live on the open stage.

Two levels of basement parking space accommodate up to 1,000 cars and 2,000 motorbikes. Other services and facilities at beachwalk include a valet service, a concierge, banks and a moneychanger, a supermarket and a hair salon.
