Byrd House is a multi-faceted lifestyle destination merging pool club with restaurant and an armful of other amenities that sits perched on the sands of Sanur’s Segara Beach – such a perfect destination to enjoy your beachside brunch. It’s a suavely styled space that promises to tempt revellers of all ages to indulge and rejuvenate by the lapping waves of the seaside.

Bamboo is interwoven throughout the build, including in a uniquely designed roof, to help encourage the feeling of being in a nest.
Dining sits at the heart of the experience here, with a designated duo of eateries; one formal, one more casual depending on the occasion, plus a patisserie, bar, lounge and beachside deck. The main eatery serves up heaped plates of Mediterranean-inspired flavours, with Italian-inspired dishes formed from locally sourced produce – the cuisine may be simple but its artfully executed to ensure the experience is nothing short of gourmet. There’s more casual fare to enjoy too of course, with the second eatery focused on hand-crafted dishes inspired by Indonesia and Japan. And then there’s the patisserie – a casual spot to relax with a quality cup of coffee, various artisan pastries and gelato, all lovingly made in house.
