Belmond Jimbaran Puri, Bali launches new contemporary tasting menus created by executive chef, Adi Wijaya, following his appointment in November 2016. Introducing a rejuvenated dining offering, travellers can experience his skilful contemporary cooking which highlights flavours of the island.
Nelayan Restaurant, located on the white sands of the sheltered Jimbaran bay, launches the Chef’s Dégustation Experience, a menu of blended French, Mediterranean and Asian flavours. Starting with a coconut and turmeric-crusted tuna salad, guests are then served a delicate cognac and lobster bisque with lobster mousse tortellini and a lemongrass foam. The ‘Land and Sea’ main course comprises premium Australian Black Angus beef tenderloin and tiger prawns freshly-caught from Jimbaran Bay, with truffle mousseline potatoes and béarnaise sauce. To end the dinner, guests can savour flavours of Indonesia in a young coconut panna cotta with refreshing raspberry ginger sorbet and passion fruit pulp, followed by coffee or tea and petit fours.
Marking the most romantic day of the calendar during sunset on 14th February, the restaurant invites couples to enjoy a four-course Valentine’s Dinner. At tables strewn with fragrant local flowers and lit by flickering candles, guests will dine on a starter of seared Balinese tuna followed by a wild mushroom consommé, with a choice of either fillet mignon Jaborandi pepper or Tasmanian salmon fillet as a main course. Couples can then sample a rum chocolate espresso bar for dessert before strolling along the sandy bay or moving to the Puri Bar for a nightcap.
A village of Balinese-style cottages and villas each with marble floors, teak wood and high beamed ceilings surrounded by lush gardens, Belmond Jimbaran Puri provides a sanctuary from the outside world for guests to reconnect to what matters most. The beach-side resort invites travellers to discover an authentic taste of local culture during a holiday of relaxation, through complimentary Indonesian language classes or sessions to learn the renowned techniques of Balinese massage.
