The Basket Bali stands out with its extraordinary architecture, resembling a massive basket. Its intricate barong ornaments add a touch of elegance to this public attraction.

Bali is renowned for its numerous tourist destinations, and among them lies a truly unique building that has captured the attention of many—The Basket Bali. It is situated in a prime location, just a 5-minute drive from Bali’s Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport.

The Basket Bali is not your typical store; it is an experiential concept store offering a wide array of distinct Balinese products. Let’s take a closer look at what makes it so special.

Established in 2019, The Basket Bali is famous for its one-of-a-kind giant basket structure, making it a truly remarkable sight in Bali. This four-story building houses various experience areas, fashion products, souvenirs, food establishments, and offices.

Setting itself apart from conventional souvenir centers, The Basket Bali aims to provide visitors with an exciting and immersive experience through thematic areas inspired by Bali’s culture and heritage, all located on the fourth floor.

As visitors ascend to the fourth floor, they are greeted by the Tridatu Bracelet Experience. Tridatu bracelets are traditional Balinese accessories with deep spiritual significance. Here, visitors can find bracelets in various colors, each representing different personality traits.

Moving on, visitors can explore thematic spots such as Jimbaran Beach and Lovina Beach, which showcase iconic sea creatures like dolphins. As they continue their journey, they will encounter the Monkey Forest and Kintamani areas.

For a moment of relaxation amidst stunning scenery, visitors can indulge in the Balinese coffee experience, overlooking breathtaking rice terraces. Energized and refreshed, they can then delve into the world of aesthetics, visiting spots like Chocolate World, where they can explore the art of traditional musical instruments, or the Antun Bridge, where they can feed koi fish. Lastly, a vibrant spot called Candy World awaits, filled with an array of colorful candies.

Beyond the aesthetic spots, The Basket Bali offers a glimpse into Bali’s rich cultural heritage. At Pojok Ayu, visitors can rent and don traditional Balinese attire, capturing memorable photos against the backdrop of ornate pottery installations. They can also engage in pottery painting activities.

What truly sets The Basket Bali apart from other souvenir destinations is its collection of unique, high-quality fashion products. Among its best-selling items is the Solar Active T-shirt, which features contemporary Barong artwork that changes color when exposed to sunlight.

In addition, there is a wide range of stylish and casual beachwear available. The soft materials are perfect for the beach, and some options are even suitable for everyday wear.

If you’re looking for practical Balinese souvenirs, look no further than the Compressed T-shirts. These T-shirts feature Balinese motifs and are packaged in a mini and unique way. When exposed to water, they expand, making them a fun and efficient souvenir option. Plus, their small size means they won’t take up much space in your suitcase.

For a unique fashion souvenir, consider the Glow In The Dark T-shirts and collaborative collections with local artists. These items can be found on the 3rd floor of The Keranjang Bali, where you’ll also discover a beautifully arranged area dedicated to typical Balinese souvenirs. From accessories and sandals to custom surfboards and other interesting local products, you’ll find it all.

In the food section, you can indulge in Bali’s culinary hits. Try the popular milk pie, available in various flavors and at prices that suit your budget. Don’t miss out on the famous banana cake, known for its appetizing aroma and delicious original, chocolate, and cheese flavors. And if you’re looking for more snacks and treats, you’ll find disco nuts, Balinese coffee, Balinese salak, and other local favorites, often with bundling promos that make souvenir shopping economical.

Aside from its unique building design, The Keranjang Bali attracts many people because of its spacious layout, allowing you to explore and learn about Bali. It’s also a great place to bring children for educational tours about Bali. Don’t worry about getting tired while exploring, as The Keranjang Bali provides massage chair facilities for relaxation.

Other public facilities at The Keranjang Bali include places of worship, dining options, and ample parking. And of course, the most exciting moment is the opportunity to take photos at the iconic giant basket building, standing 15.4 meters high and 58 meters wide. Look out for the detailed Karang Boma ornaments on the facade, shaped like bird’s heads. These ornaments are believed to neutralize bad luck and negative energy.

Lastly, it’s worth noting that The Keranjang Bali has two access points, one from the Raya Bypass Road Ngurah Rai and the other from Jalan Raya Kuta. Its strategic location in Kuta makes it easily accessible.

The enchanting Keranjang Bali building serves as an exceptional photo backdrop, while its vibrant collection of souvenirs makes it a hub for unforgettable experiences. It stands as the ultimate shopping destination, ensuring a memorable holiday in Bali.
