Maurice Terzini joins the Bali beach club rush

Maurice Terzini's Bali beach club will have an international feel.

Icebergs' Maurice Terzini is joining the push into Bali's burgeoning beach and pool club market, the restaurateur and his partners snapping up a site on the Indonesian holiday island.

"It's just up from Potato Head Beach Club," Terzini says of the location, an area of dark beach sand but a golden mile for profitable beach club ventures.

"It'll open in March or April. We haven't settled on a name but we're looking at something using Beach House."Mrs Sippy in Bali features a luxe design inspired by Mykonos.

He says they'll work initially with an inherited space, but his go-to designer, Italian-based Australian Carl Pickering, will be involved. And former Pier Sydney chef Steve Skelly has been approached to oversee the menu.

"It's a sunset club," Terzini says. "There's always some Italian [to his ventures] but we want it to have an international feel to it."

Terzini follows hot on the heels of Double Bay's Mrs Sippy, which opened a sprawling Bali pool club in April with seating for up to 600 diners.

Bali is quickly becoming the global epicentre for beach and pool clubs. Mrs Sippy, for instance, features a 1000-square-metre pool, a dive tower and a luxe Mediterranean-Mykonos-inspired design.
