The Mozaic Beach Club on the beach in Batubelig

Seminyak, or better said, Batubelig, has a new hip and totally cool place to hang on the beach for sunset and beyond. It’s top-end and fine-dining all the way. The Mozaic Beach Club, the brainchild of chef Chris Salans and part of the Mozaic Group, has just opened and offers poolside chill-out tapas, lunch on the deck, a fine dining restaurant and so close to the Batubelig Beach you can just about touch it.
FRV Travel had the opportunity to experience the new beach club and restaurant first hand shortly after opening and while it’s still early days and points like service and the dust settling process are still in the making, the first impressions were extremely good. We sat down to a magnificent three course meal on the top level of the restaurant prepared by English Executive Chef James Ephraim (pictured left), who is a four year protégé of master chef and Mozaic Ubud’s head honcho, Chris Salans. The views are stupendous over the beach and crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, and the flavours and presentation of Ephraim’s dishes are equal to match.
The large deck and poolside bar and lounge on the beach level, situated only a few steps away from the new W Retreat, is the ideal design and has made perfect use of the space available. Combining Salans’ culinary genius and hospitality savoir faire, his flair for great service and the expertise of a team he has assembled over the years, the Mozaic Beach Club is set to be the next big thing around the Petitenget/Batubelig end of town. To get there just turn left along the top of the beach past Balisani Suites at the end of Jalan Batubelig.
