As one of Bali’s latest and greatest shopping, dining and entertainment complexes, the Kuta Beachwalk houses numerous tenants, big and small. But one that particularly stands out in its fashion boutique directory is SATU, which has the exquisite collections and latest creations of among Bali’s greatest island-based designers. The elegant boutique is located on the third floor of Beachwalk’s northern dome, one of four massive sections built with a traditional, eco-friendly thatched roof design that has become a distinctive symbol of the shopping destination.
SATU features a layout styled to resemble an emporium, and was conceived as a one-stop place where you could find some of Indonesia’s (especially Bali’s) finest and creative fashion designers. Among the notable names within its vast collection are Ali Charisma, Putu Aliki, Andriana, Oka Diputra and Erika Pena. There’s also Lulu Yasmine and Lily Jean presenting light resort wear, exquisite silver jewellery designs from Tulola and the Uluwatu line of traditional Balinese lace. In one corner there’s the collection of Espen Salberg (the man behind the lilac dress worn by Jennifer Lopez in the tango scene with Richard Gere in Shall We Dance).

The interior design of the boutiques are well executed, comprising recycled materials and white-washed wooden lines in subtle lighting that make browsing through the collection akin to a tour through an art gallery. Among the evening and resort wear, some with quirky and bold designs, don’t miss the interesting batik and ethnic motifs from Milo and Anja Sun Suko. Most items presented are ready to wear, and with so many varieties available, you could always try a bit of mix-and-match on the spot. Jewellery pieces also include, either from the Uluwatu’s own inspired line called Uluwatu Treasures, or Tulola’s heritage designs of exotic sterling silver and gold.
Arriving in from the Kuta heat and after passing by impressive freeform pools, water features and galleries, stepping into this dome is a cool retreat and a cool treat for the eyes – for fashionistas in particular. The whole floor spells ‘window shopping’, filled with outlets from brands the likes of Furla bags, Farah Khan, Hugo Boss, Versace, Armani, Pandora, to designer watches such as Longines and Tissot. Then, not far from the glass doorway, is this expansive boutique, with large lit-up letterings of ‘S-A-T-U’ across its facade.
The designers combined under SATU have also actively organised lively fashion events, such as an ‘Afternoon with SATU’. The event has fashion lovers and Bali socialites from all around the island and the archipelago descend upon Beachwalk and the adjacent Sheraton Lounge, to be served afternoon tea and cocktails, as gorgeous male and female models take to the catwalks. They strut their stuff in SATU's designers’ latest and updated collections, to provide exclusive previews of each designer’s upcoming concepts and designs.
