Bali by the Sea

Hale Aina Award: Best Ambience, Gold

Compete with Mother Nature? Not if you're smart. "Our decor is very understated and subdued," says Alicia Antonio, manager of Bali by the Sea, a Gold winner for best ambience. "We don't want to distract from the ocean. It really captivates our diners; people come in to the podium and say, Wow!"

Bali by the Sea makes the most of its oceanfront location, opening at 6:00 p.m. in time for sunset, and offering wide, comfortable chairs so that patrons can relax.

If you haven't been to Bali by the Sea in a while, the winter's a good time. "The sunsets are better now," says Antonio. "Reflections in the ocean are purple, fiery red, blue. It's different every night. I'm in awe, and I see it every day."
