Dining by candlelight gets the star treatment in Hollywood flicks, but some of us — the early eaters, arsonphobics, and iPhone-ready photographers — prefer to set our gastronomical groove to the beat of a gorgeous sunset. There is nothing like the five-sense experience of soaking in the early evening’s rosy glow, indulging in seasonal mojitos and the sea’s catch of the day while watching the swelling sun dip into the breathtaking surrounding landscape on a hot summer’s night.
And It doesn’t get better than the sunset at Pesta Lobster on the Kisik private jetty at the remote Ayana Resort and Spa in Jimbaran, Bali. To get to this true "toes in the sand"-style eatery, you’ll wind down a path leading to a wooden pier with sunset views that stretch straight into the sea. Enjoy a five-course lobster dinner accompanied by tranquil bamboo xylophone music and you’ll feel like you’re in another world. Head over to Rock Bar for after-dinner drinks.
