How do we make a booking?
All enquiries can be made via our contact page
Let us know some date and time options you're available as we may not be able to make your first preference happen due to other bookings.
You'll then be sent a list of questions about your accommodation. It's vital that these are completed in full. We ask for backup Whatsapp numbers, plus staff contact details of your villa to make it as easy as possible for our teams. Bali addresses and locations are often very ambiguous and not in a systematic order, so we need to make sure we're covered with extra details so there is no chance of any mishap on the day of your party.
Once all the details have been returned, you'll have 24 hours to make payment to secure the time and date! Wahlaa....your party is confirmed!
We only take bookings within a 6 months date from your party.
Can we change the start and finish times?
No, I’m afraid the times are set as we have other parties already scheduled around these times. The only way to can change the time is by booking an extra hour of service being booked at the end of your party, meaning your party will be 12 pm- 4 pm or 5 pm - 9 pm
Can our party run after 10 pm?
No, local Banjars (like councils) have strict regulations stating no excess noise is to come from villas after this time. This is the perfect time for you to head out to one of the local bars or beach clubs to continue the party
What areas do you service? (click for maps)
We currently service the following areas of Bali.
In some cases, we may be able to service other areas on a last-minute basis, but this will depend on other bookings we have in our currency service zones. If approved, these parties will be a 4-hour duration at a cost of $50 AUD (500k) per guest
Do I need permission from my villa to host a Cocktail party?
Yes, please make sure that you seek permission for your accommodation before confirming our service! The villas we have hosted so far have been very supportive of the service as not only is it a super fun experience to enhance their guests' Bali adventure, but the service is managed by a professional, responsible, and trained team. The team will make sure their working area is spick and span before leaving the villa creating no additional pressure on villa staff. It's important you seek this permission first, so there are no unexpected issues at the party.
Can you talk to our villa for us?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. If you book a party with us, then the arrangement is between yourself and Cocoloco. Due to the high number of parties, we can not be talking to multiple parties about the details of your party. It's your responsibility to communicate with your villa and provide them with the details they require.
What are the requirements of my villa?
As long as we have a kitchen with bench space to work from and a kitchen sink, then we're good to go!
Can you send us a list of the cocktails you will make us in advance or can we decide the menu for the party?
I’m afraid we can’t do this. Due to the sheer number of parties, we host we're unable to offer menus in advance or have you create them. Our team plan their menus for each party based on the spirits you have purchased as well as what ingredients are seasonally available for them to access. We're certainly happy for you to suggest flavours that you love or don’t love and we will do our best to accommodate, we just can not make any guarantees in advance. We haven’t had a disappointed guest yet!
What alcohol and how much should we buy?
This is the fun part and is totally up to you. We want you to purchase your favourite spirits and then let the team work their magic to create some custom masterpieces that you may never have had before. Our general recommendation is 1 duty-free litre of spirits per two guests, so approximately 500mls per person. So for a group of 8 guests, 4 litres is a perfect amount. If you're not fussed and pretty happy with most cocktails, then the most popular spirits guests tend to purchase are;
Vodka (plain or vanilla)
Can you provide the alcohol for us?
No, unfortunately, we do not provide alcohol. The reason is that we highly encourage you to purchase duty-free spirits in your own country before arriving in Bali. Why is this? Duty-Free spirits have been manufactured internationally and under strict regulations. The government tax that is placed on spirits in Indonesia is very high. This makes it nearly impossible to buy internationally produced spirits in Bali. The drinks served in bars and especially during happy hour in local bars and beach clubs ARE LOCALLY PRODUCED SPIRITS. These are produced in Indonesia and in many cases are not regulated or even produced in safe facilities. Because of this, we see so many cases of methanol poisoning in Bali from people who have consumed cocktails from Bali bars and beach clubs. Because of this, we will ONLY work with your safe duty-free spirits so you and we can be assured you're having a safe experience.
We’ve got some kids attending, can they be involved?
Absolutely! We offer a reduced rate of $10 AUD(100k IDR) per guest who would like to participate and are 15 years or under age. Any guest who is 16 years or above is considered a standard guest. This rate will include a custom Cocoloco Coconut and a selection of mocktails for them to enjoy
Can I pay in cash on the day of my party?
No, all money must be paid and cleared prior to the party. The local staff order and purchase all the items necessary with our suppliers, so it is important your booking is confirmed with full payment prior as security.
How many people do I need to be able to host a Cocoloco Cocktail party?
We have a minimum of 6 guests required to host a party, otherwise, the minimum fee for 6 will apply. Although we can host larger group parties, 20 +, we are more of an intimate private pool party hosts rather than your standard "bartender hire service"

How long does a Cocoloco in Bali Cocktail Party go for?
The standard time is from 12 pm-3 pm or 5 pm-8 pm (3-hour duration). An extra hour can be booked for an extra $5 AUD (50k IDR) per person.
How many cocktails will you make us at our party?
This really depends on your drinking speed, but an average party will have a variety of approximately 6 different cocktail variants per person for a 3-hour party and 8 different variants for a 4-hour party, that's a new one every 30 minutes depending on your drinking speed.
What happens if I need to cancel my party or change the times?
Please refer to our Terms & Conditions When we secure a party for you, we reject other bookings, therefore bookings within 7 days can not be cancelled. We will accommodate changes wherever possible subject to availability. Due to the work that goes into planning a party and the fact we have already engaged and paid staff, no changes can be made within 24 hours of your scheduled party
We want to add an extra person or two on the day. Is this possible?
If you make contact with us earlier enough on the day and we're able to add extra guests, then you'll be required to make the payment immediately for us to update numbers, therefore updating our catering plans. Should extra guests arrive at the party that were un-planned for, but still want to participate, a payment of 300k(or $30 per person) will still be payable to the staff at the time. Unfortunately, we won't have fresh coconuts available for these last-minute guests as these we're part of our original catering plan.
My flight is delayed or cancelled... we can't make our party
Any changes within 48 hours prior to your party cannot be made. We DO NOT advise booking your party on the arrival day into Bali as we have seen too many external factors mean that people have missed their own party. Should your flight be delayed or cancelled and impact your party, then we can supply a receipt that you can submit to your travel insurance to be claimed.
We want to capture photos from the party, can you arrange a photographer?
Yes, we have an amazing photographer in our team with all the latest and greatest equipment and is a huge talent! (He has captured a lot of the photos on our website)
We can arrange for a 2-hour shoot which also includes a bulk edit of the photos and all files sent to you in a Dropbox file 3-5 days after the event.
I’m getting married in Bali, can you guys do the drinks?
We certainly can, but our service is not the standard bar service that you may have in mind. If you're happy with a more casual and relaxed approach then we can certainly assist for a fun night!
Do you work with any caterers?
Our favourite party caterer is Island Graze which provides Bali’s best Grazing Platters and Floating Platters. If you are interested in a Grazing Platter to compliment your party, please let them know you would like to arrange a platter to have at your Cocoloco Cocktail party. Please email; firstname.lastname@example.org
For any other catering requirements, please get in touch with the style of food you are after and we can suggest some of our favourite other caterers pending your needs.
