KU DÉ TA – spectacular rooftop restaurant, bar, club lounge at Marina Bay Sands
June 2015 Update – KU DE TA has re-branded as CE LA VI
March 21st, 2011
The name KU DÉ TA has over the past decade become synonymous in Asia with exclusive dining and nightlife on the beach front of Bali’s famous Seminyak beach. With the opening last year of KU DÉ TA on the rooftop deck of the spectacular Marina Bay Sands resort and casino complex in Singapore, another iconic location has been added to the lifestyle brand. KU DÉ TA in Singapore, located on the distinctive Skypark , 200 metres high rooftop of the North Tower – comprises an integrated complex of restaurant, bar, club lounge- and swimming pool – offering a unique dining and nightlife entertainment experience.
The outlets at KU DÉ TA include the SKYBAR, situated at the northern most end of the rooftop deck area, and is completely open with 360 degree panoramic views over the Singapore city and coastlines. Large market umbrellas provide some shelter from the tropical sun- and the not infrequent tropical downpours. The mood changes with nightfall as the bar glows with LED lighting effects. The glass enclosed restaurant is adjacent to the SkyBar deck area- and is a good option for those preferring air-conditioned comfort whilst dining. Open all day from breakfast, through lunch and then evening dinner. The kitchen is headed up by award winning chef Dan Segall- whose wide experience in Asia includes opening the famous ZUMA restaurant in Hong Kong. The food style is best described as “modern Asian cuisine” – combining elements of the cuisines of Japan, Bali, Thailand and China. Dishes are designed for sharing and range from bamboo-roasted black cod in red miso, crispy skin bamboo-steamed duck, cape grim 100% grass-fed red & black angus ribeye, and charred bonito tuna tataki. These are complimented by a tempting offering of desserts. A premium selection of wines is available to enjoy with the meals.
Further along from the SkyBar is the main Club Lounge , with private members areas, and the Vue Terrace. Always a popular destination for sunset drinks, the Vue Terrace offers stunning views over the Singapore CBD buildings and far beyond.
The Club Lounge features an indoor circular dance floor and elevated DJ booth, some discreet lounge seating areas and a long curved bar, serving a full range of premium spirits, wines, champagnes, and both classic and signature cocktails are a specialty. International and local DJs provide an eclectic playlist and the club is one of the hottest nightspots in town, with the partying going on late into the nights.
And adjacent to the club lounge is the SkyDeck swimming pool area- here guests can relax throughout the day or night on comfortable daybeds, enjoy a swim in the amazing infinity pool, or just take in the panoramic views. Drinks and light refreshments are served poolside all day.
KU DÉ TA has certainly made an impact on the nightlife scene in Singapore- providing a “must visit” destination for both visitors to Singapore and the local residents. The stunning location, combined with owners experience of operating a successful lifestyle/entertainment complex for over 10 years in Bali, result in a combination of outlets that bring to Singapore a new level of sophisticated and glamorous nightlife.
