Moment of Perfection
The US-based Hakkasan Group has launched Omnia Dayclub (Tel:(0361) 8482150) in Uluwatu, Bali. The flagship Omnia Nightclub opened in Las Vegas in 2015 and quickly established a reputation as one of the world’s top nightclubs. Omnia Dayclub is the company’s first day club. The venue and its restaurant, Sake no Hana, have been planned to maximise the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean that can be enjoyed from the 80-metre-high plateau. The design was carried out by WOHA, a Singapore- based practice, and Rockwell Group of New York. Sake no Hana is a modern Japanese restaurant with its flagship in London. The restaurant’s philosophy is anchored in the principle of “shu”’; the moment of perfection when everything is at its peak. Framed by nature, the open-air, latticed space of the restaurant perches elegantly above the main lounge. Below the restaurant, infinity pool curves meet ocean views, bungalows with private plunge pools and VIP cabanas tucked behind the DJ booth. The Cube is the venue’s cinematic piece de resistance: a tower of shimmering silver that comes to life after dark.
