This glittering salon, which partially occupies the Kerobokan property of owner Sandra McArthur, is filled with fabulous custom-beaded handiwork. McArthur stocks dresses, suits, and evening gowns embellished with all manner of beading: everything from Swarovski crystals to glass beads and sequins to pearls and seashells. (She can also arrange for custom-beading projects, with a week’s notice.) An international clientele keeps Sandra in their Rolodexes for when they visit the island—and can often be found enjoying afternoon tea with Sandra while trying on her over-the-top party frocks.
Tip: Sandra’s Boudoir can be visited by appointment only—no walk-ins.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
