HQ Beach Club at Grand Inna Kuta Bali
Fun Family Dining and Beachfront Pool Scene in Kuta0
HQ Beach Club at Grand Inna Kuta Bali, also known as 'Headquarters', is a fun beachfront venue fit for holidaying families and friends who require a laidback hangout with a neat pool, beach view and access, and with reasonably priced food and drinks. The beach club is located directly on the Kuta coastline and is hard to miss. It is easily accessible from the art vendor-lined path next to the Balawista lifeguard headquarters and the Kuta Beach Sea Turtle Conservation site.
Right off the beach footpath and a few steps up is a raised platform where the lawn and swimming pool of HQ Beach Club take centre stage. This lap pool is sandwiched between two different restaurant outlets, namely the HQ Food Hall to its north and the HQ Japanese Restaurant at the opposite end. HQ’s main lounge hall situated just after the pool area features a bar surrounded by various seating options. All provide alfresco settings and are well shaded from the heat of the day; a nice retreat, just in case you’ve had enough rays from lying out on the sun beds.

Upon entering HQ Beach Club from the beach, you’ll notice mini blackboards bearing ‘Minus 2 Beers’ in white chalk. A bit of a mystery, as we clarified it actually means ‘minus two degrees Celsius’. But apparently it’s not your average ‘ice-cold beer’. Instead, enjoy the unique taste of an extra cold beer with… crushed ice in your mouth. There’s the omnipresent Bintang and Bali Hai on the list, alongside international regulars of Carlsberg, Heineken and Guiness.
Come sunset time, Headquarter’s special ‘cocktails to match’ range from mojitos to pina coladas. And the signature mixes include the must-try Kaka Tua, which the guys at HQ hilariously list on the menu as “A competition winner! Rum, vodka, apricot brandy, coconut cream, and…, and…” Well, the point is you actually have to try it to see (or rather, taste) it for yourself.
Bites at HQ Beach Club are light and simple. From a variety of salads and even the national dish of ‘gado-gado’ listed under appetizers, the menu is evidently a mix of Asian and Western. Soups comprise the Indonesian favourites of Soto Betawi and Sop Buntut, together with Tom Yum Goong and Chinese clear soup. Kids will love the pastas at only IDR 55,000 per serving, and good to share with family are the calamari, friend wontons, seafood tofus, and veggie or seafood spring rolls, between IDR 32,000 to 46,000.
Mains include Indonesian favourites, from fried duck with traditional sambal matah dip to pan-fried red snapper and salmon teriyaki. For something quick and easy, you can always opt for some good old fish ‘n chips. The HQ Japanese dining menu comprises the typical Japanese favourites of agedashi tofu, wakame and kani salads, miso soups, and modern takes on sushi rolls. Japanese mains comprise teriyakis, Japanese fried rice, and the desserts include ogura or red bean ice cream.
Prices at HQ Beach Club range between IDR 25,000 to IDR 195,000, which is quite competitive for a beach club, making it a great option for laidback holiday fun in Kuta.
