SKAI Beach Club at Padma Resort Legian in Bali is the resort’s main beachfront venue, where you can enjoy stunning sunsets over the Legian surf from various cosy lounging spots indoors and out on a semi-alfresco terrace. Its name is a playful acronym of ‘Sunset, Kocktail, Alfresco and Indulgence’. 

SKAI adds to the small number of beach lounging options on Legian Beach. Here, you can enjoy a refined chill-out ambience with an all-day dining menu as well as signature cocktails served from a strikingly designed bar that's composed of a criss-cross woody trellis and latticework.

The beachfront location ensures great views at any time of day. Even so, the best time to go is surely around sunset. For this, you should try to book one of the white terrazzo pods. Couples can find a cosy and more intimate option at the semi-al fresco lounge, featuring comfy sofas and a wooden panel backdrop with murals of Balinese Legong dancers.

For a truly beachside experience, the poolside lined with parasol-shaded sun loungers is a popular spot. Ask for a pint of "minus 2"’ extra cold beer, or go for one of their signature sangria selections available by the carafe.

Agra-Ria is a truly refreshing blend of wine with basil leaves, orange slices, tangerine juice and soda water. The other 2 are fruity takes on sangria. The watermelon sun-gria, is pleasing to the eyes with its splashes of colour – wine with watermelon juice, vodka, triple sec, and garnished with frozen watermelon cubes, lime, orange and sugar. The fruit sung-gria is a sparkling option, with orange, blueberries and strawberries.

Those feeling peckish will relish in the seasonal delights, and there’s almost always something different on the menu to try out. Popular permanent choices include tequila ceviche of salmon and scallop, or the serving of Mexican cheese and fondue. If you’re really hungry after the dip, you may go for a satisfying SKAI ultimate salad sandwich served with French fries, or sticky pork spare ribs served with baked potatoes and sweet corn.

Live DJs play on most nights, so it's not just a cool place for dining and drinking. The overall setting is fresh and edgy, and its giant-sized mural is a work of art to admire.

While Padma Resort guests enjoy the most convenient and instant access along leafy pathways leading to the beach club right from their own guestrooms and suites, public guests are always welcome.
