Dining

& Bar

All meals at Sungai and Sungai Gold are a lavish, but unpretentious affair. They always exude a sense of occasion with elegant table settings and candlelight at night. The transition from afternoon activities to dinner is marked by the presentation of Sungai canapés for guests – mouth-watering creations that you would expect from a five-star luxury hotel with an internationally-renowned chef, complemented by a broad selection of beverages and cocktails. Lime and cashew blue-eye cod rolls with Chinese black vinegar dipping sauce, Crab, coconut and kaffir lime on betel leaves, Crisp fish, green mango and roasted coconut salad with sweet and sour chilli sauce, Balinese lamb stew with yellow rice, Lemongrass and palm sugar panna cotta with orange and chilli caramel, Coconut jellies with coconut caramel and minted pineapple, to name a few…

The Bar

To offset the exorbitant prices to be found on restaurant wine lists due to the extreme import taxes on wines into Bali, a carefully selected small villa list of well-priced wines is made available to our guests. Some of these include Australian wines bottled in Bali that helps to minimise the taxes. However, we also offer you the opportunity to select from our wholesaler’s broader global range that can be sourced within 24 hours, 6 days a week, at the wholesaler’s rate. Such special orders will be charged to your account immediately, irrespective of whether you consume them all during your stay at the villa or not. An extensive range of cocktails is available from the bar at wholesale prices. Please note that USD10 corkage per bottle will be charged for wines brought in by guests, however, BYO duty free spirits are welcome without corkage for use with mixed drinks from the bar (not for use in cocktails). Please note that there is a 1 litre alcohol limit per adult into Bali.
