The fact that more than 50 per cents of the lifestyle market has shifted to Canggu, South Quay (SQ) at Discovery Shopping Mall is expected to be the newest lifestyle destination in Kuta. South Quay itself is the latest project from PT Bali Utama Cakrawala; a hospitality and lifestyle company in Bali with decades of experience in its field.
The construction on South Quay was actually started in early 2019 and was expected to be completed within this year. Even though the South Quay project was built in the era of the Covid-19 pandemic, PT Bali Utama Cakrawala remains committed to preparing for Bali tourism returns to normal.
SQ will focus on F&B and lifestyle by providing a new spot for hangout which can also be an alternative for those who want to unwind while enjoying the comfortable calm surrounding with a sunset view of Kuta Beach. At the moment, there are 42 tenants in this SQ.
Carnival Lifestyle Market is one of the programmes that will last until 10 March 2021. Wit opening hour from 12PM to 8PM, this programme is dedicated to supporting local brands. In this programme, the management wants to introduce any local tenants with their own market, ranging from fashion, accessories, F&B, hobby, bike, accessories, animals, art, bags, shoes, handmade and many more. The interest of this programme is based on the community who also wants local flagship products to be introduced to the public.
During the current Pandemic, of course, the value of consumption from the community has also decreased slightly with visitors being limited, but the management believes that any products displayed at the Carnival Lifestyle Market Event will get good feedback. Hopefully, this effort will bring opportunities for local industrial development in Bali.
To support tenant activities, the management has prepared running activities, such as: Plant Exhibition & Talkshow (every Saturday & Sunday) and Talents Competition (Coloring, Drawing, K-Pop Dancing, Fashion Show). And to make the guest feel welcome, the management has prepared the Everyday Programme:
- Minimum spending of IDR 1,000,000 (maximum 3 receipts in all DSM tenants) is entitled to IDR 50,000 cashback.
- A minimum shopping of IDR 200,000 is entitled to the all-day FREE parking privilege.
