O-CE-N Bali by Outrigger is a breath of fresh design for Bali. There are no kitsch Balinese artifacts, frog ponds or piped music that goes ping-ping-ping-pong. In fact this is one resort that wouldn’t look out of place on Queensland shores.

At first, it’s stark and blindingly white design can be startling. The rooms are also furnished in white, cream and a very pale turquoise. After a day out in the sun especially after a shopping trip along the dirty and dusty streets, this is a resort that is heaven to return to. The clean minimalist design and fabulous air conditioning soon freshens you enough to tackle another shopping expedition in search of the elusively perfect handbag.

The O-CE-N not only offers space and comfort, it is also in an incredible location. Overlooking the hustle and bustle of the beach, it is close to many restaurants, shops and within staggering distance of the popular Double Six nightclub. It’s the perfect resort for families with teenage children but certainly not young children.

The seaside location of O-CE-N Bali has been inspirational in all the design elements resulting in a resort that mirrors the colours and textures of the open ocean while maximizing the astounding views.

O-CE-N Bali by Outrigger has designed 114 superbly appointed apartments from studio style to penthouse split level living, all tastefully designed in cool shades of the beach. All apartments above the second floor
have full view while the second story has discreet, partial views. The fourth and fifth floors are split level penthouses with their own private Jacuzzis and climate appropriate landscaped terraces for garden style entertaining or relaxation.

Each apartment is furnished with custom-made tropical-contemporary style furniture that suits the indoor outdoors climate. Air conditioning is installed throughout the complex, elegant Japanese blinds provide shade and cool during the day while sliding glass panels allow you to enjoy the balmy evening off shore breezes. Each apartment has original contemporary Asian artworks, cool cream marble flooring, a plasma flat screen TV, cable television service and broadband Internet access.

O-CE-N features a modern seafood restaurant – Flying Fish – featuring a spacious dining room and endless views from the terrace. Adjacent is the C Bistro, an al-day dining venue, and the Lounge which opens in the afternoon and is the ideal spot to have a cocktail whilst watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean.
