Those of us in Bali can now say a proper hej to Swedish meatballs and Scandinavian home goods, as Ikea has officially expanded outside of Java island today with the opening of their fifth Indonesian outlet.

In September, an ongoing renovations project of a Giant supermarket in Kuta gained traction online as numerous hints were dropped that the store was going to be transformed into an Ikea outlet.

The wait/speculation is over with Ikea opening in Bali today. And those of you who are craving those iconic Swedish meatballs or simply can’t resist practical and fairly affordable home goods can head over to the store at Kuta Central Park. 

The outlet opened its doors to the public at noon today, though from tomorrow onwards their operational hours will be from 10am to 9pm. 

The Swedish furniture brand opened their fourth outlet at Jakarta Garden City only in September, with their Bali store opening marking the brand’s debut outside of Java. Following the closure of major supermarket chain Giant across Indonesia earlier this year, PT Hero Supermarket ⁠— which operates both retail businesses in Indonesia ⁠— announced that five of their Giant stores will be transformed into new Ikea stores.
