A slice of Bali is coming to Dubai as new beachfront restaurant Koko Bay prepares to open its doors.

Inspired by the beaches of Seminyak and Canggu, Koko Bay will bring Bali’s laidback vibes to Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, serving up fresh seafood, sunset DJ sets and a perfect Instagram backdrop.

Outdoors, Koko Bay will offer relaxed vibes with beach beanbags, umbrellas and hammocks. Indoors, expect Balinese touches with plenty of greenery and wicker.

On the menu, guests can expect dishes such as lava prawns, assorted grilled skewers, Hokkaido scallop ceviche with a citrus granita and a selection of maki rolls such as organic quinoa, crispy kale and beetroot. Main courses include nasi goreng, Cantonese-style steamed red snapper, slow cooked beef cheeks, Koko Bay fish and chips, and crispy sea bream with Thai coconut and young peppercorn sauce.

The restaurant’s private beach can also be enjoyed by diners during the day, whether they fancy swinging in its hammocks or taking a dip in the ocean. Lockers and a shower facility are on offer to make it easy for beachgoers to transition from the sand to the restaurant.

Koko Bay will also host a string of guest DJs and live entertainment acts on weekends, taking it from day to night, promising a great spot for sundowners.

Pet owners will be pleased to know that the restaurant is dog-friendly and will even offer feeding bowls.

Koko Bay is set to open its doors at West Beach, Palm Jumeirah on Tuesday, September 1.
