15 July 2012: Mozaic Beach Club opens in Batubelig
The Mozaic Beach Club offers a poolside chill-out tapas, lunch on the deck and a fine dining restaurant all overlooking the ocean within the same premises on Batubelig Beach.
The large deck and poolside bar and lounge, situated only a few steps away from the new W Hotel, is perfectly located for a stunning sunset on one of Bali’s uber-hip South Coast. Combining Salans’ culinary genius and hospitality savoir faire, his flair for great service and the expertise of a team he assembled over the years, Chris Salans creates the perfect synergy with the Mozaic Beach Club. In partnership with some of the industry’s best suppliers and greatest names of excellence like Nayati, Schott Zwiesel, Amefa and Lotus Art de Vivre, The Mozaic Beach Club is opening to great acclaim.
The all day poolside tapas, lunch on the deck, evening dining à la carte or tasting menus and private dining room, are designed around the Mozaic concept of educated and professional service and great food.
