Finn's Beach Club, Semara Luxury Villa Resort

On the southernmost point of Bali’s beautiful Bukit
Peninsula lies the Semara Luxury Villa Resort boasting stunning views, hill-top
villas and unique, inclinator-access to a pristine, private beach far below.  But between you and me, hotel guests aren’t the
only ones who can enjoy what is likely to be one of the best and most serene
beaches on the island.  Patrons of the
hotel’s restaurant, Finn’s Beach Club, are also welcome to enjoy the beach and
its many amenities. 

Whether you go for a daylong excursion or just a sunset
dinner, time at Finn’s Beach Club will surely be etched in your memory as a
holiday highlight. 
It takes a bit of a commitment to get to Finn’s, but it will
be worth it.  After a drive through the
Bukit to Ungasan and then down winding, village roads, you’ll find yourself at
the breathtaking resort.
When you arrive, you’ll check in at reception and let them
know you’re going to Finn’s.  Day
visitors will be charged Rp 250,000 per adult, but this will be deducted from
your final food and beverage bill (it’s an easy amount to spend). Kids under 12
are free when accompanied by a paying adult. After 5pm, entry is free for all.

A staff member will show you the way to the cobbled-stone
stairway, where you’ll descend a couple of flights, admiring the breathtaking
view of the Indian Ocean before reaching the inclinator.  Once on, go ahead and turn off your cell
phone (there’s no reception on the beach anyway) and let the soft breeze carry
your troubles away.  Don’t worry about
getting a good picture of the inclinator; the friendly operator will offer to
alight once at the bottom, sending you a few feet back up the hill in order to
take the perfect picture of you and your family. 
Step off the inclinator and into the bar area of the
restaurant.  The stone floor and rock
walls are a lovely complement to the bamboo structural beams and thatched roof.  Large Balinese chicken baskets find clever
new life hanging as light shades from the ceiling. The pizza oven on the far
end of the restaurant is cleverly built directly into the limestone cliffs and
covered with stones; the kids are mesmerized as they watch the chef work his
magic.

Find a table and order a nice drink to unwind – how about a
Raspberry Truffle Martini or a Ginger Twist (both Rp14,500)?  The kids love the array of milkshakes (Rp 6,500)
including the Monkey Business made with chocolate ice cream, peanut butter,
banana and milk.

Finn's Beach Club Food and Beverages
The food is pleasing too. 
A variety of pizzas and pastas are available, as are steaks and seafood,
should one want to indulge. Try the Bacon and Brie Panini with Cranberry Sauce
(Rp 12,000) or one of the fresh salads. 
Everyone in your party finds something to satisfy.  Admittedly, the prices are a bit high, but
for a beach this good and a family enjoying themselves this much, it’s worth
it!
After a hearty lunch, you’ll want to spend some time in the
sun.  Beach Club amenities include daybeds
and bales (though Villa guests have priority) and if the mood strikes, you can take
advantage of snorkeling gear, kayaks, beach volleyball and more.  Low tide here presents the opportunity for
the kids to explore the shallow pools while high tide brings jolly, rolling
waves.

Sunset at Finn's Beach Club
After a long day of beach fun, the sunset silhouettes
fisherman casting their nets offshore, a scene indelibly imprinted in your
holiday memories. 
Reason To Go:  Unique
setting, beautiful views, pristine and exclusive beach, fantastic beach amenities.
