Above Eleven Bali Launches Nine New Island-Inspired Cocktails
One-of-a-kind Nikkei cuisine, rooftop views and a chic cosmopolitan design are the ingredients that have come together to make made Above Eleven Bali popular since it opened.
Sitting atop the Samasta Lifestyle Village in Jimbaran, you can peer out far out over Jimbaran Bay, and out to the distant coastlines of Bali, watching as the planes fly in. A favourite spot for sunsets and dining under the stars, tucking into the Peruvian-Japanese fusion that defines the Nikkei cuisine.
