Kamar Kamar is hidden down a quiet side street in North Seminyak, 2.5km from the sweeping Seminyak Beach, which is famous for its world-class surf breaks and legendary sunsets.
Seminyak lays claim to the island’s highest concentration of international fine-dining restaurants, and is also known for its colourful cafes, Euro-style bars, designer boutiques, day spas, beach bars and lively nightspots. Kamar Kamar is 10km from Bali’s international airport, while most of the island’s best-known tourist attractions can be reached on daytrips.
The owner and designer of Kamar Kamar is Indonesian fashion designer, Kiata Kwanda, who graduated from the prestigious ESMOD fashion school in Paris. In Kamar Kamar’s boutique and gallery, Kiata showcases his latest haute couture collection, expressing his individuality and his roots through his use of natural fabrics and his signature colours of white, black and red.
Kafe Kaze is the hotel’s restaurant, bar, and meeting venue, situated on the upper level and offering a menu of Asian dishes including Indonesian specialties as well as some Western favourites. This delightful semi-alfresco space is furnished with antique tea chairs and tables under a soaring red roof dripping in red and black lanterns. Here, an intriguing ensemble of wooden cowbells is harmonised with a rural view of cows grazing in a tree-dotted paddock.
