Ayana Resort and Spa Bali in Bali, Indonesia has reopened remodeled Damar Terrace restaurant designed by Japanese designer Yasuhiro Koichi.
Koichi of Japanese design firm Design Studio Spin has combined comfort with modern Asian decor at Damar Terrace. Koichi has remodeled the space by blending traditional materials, motifs and colors, set off by avant-garde lighting and clean modern lines. Lotus ponds are featured in the interior offering a serene atmosphere.
Damar Terrace restaurant features central thatch-roof bale with a large carved wooden dragon suspended above a bar made from recycled ship wood. Another bale expands to the pond with plush day-beds that offers a floating experience. Each day-bed is separated by wooden partitions offering intimate ambiance to guests. The restaurant is illuminated by glass lamps designed by Japanese glass artist Seiki Torige.
Damar Terrace renovation is the latest in a series of upgrades to Ayana’s restaurants and lounges since the rebranding in April 2009. Ayana Resort and Spa Bali was awarded Asia’s Leading Luxury Resort at the World Travel Awards 2009, just months after rebranding. Formerly Ritz-Carlton Bali, Ayana was rebranded on April 1, 2009 after a management change initiated by the owner.
