Travelogue: Fine Dining at One of Bali’s Finest Resorts

Balinese Adventure Part 31

Michael Taylor’s Balinese Adventure has ended in real time, but it continues in Cyberspace. Today he reminisces about dining at The Mulia, one of Bali’s biggest resorts.

The Mulia, Mulia Resort, and Mulia Villas have a total of 8 food and beverage outlets.

The Cafe is an all-day brasserie, where most hotel guests have breakfast, and that is where I breakfasted on both mornings of my 2 night stay at the hotel.

The breakfast buffets are so extensive, in fact, that you almost need roller skates to get from one end of the room to the other!

There are several different stations serving everything from fresh fruit and homemade yogurt to pastries, cereals, Chinese dim sum, Japanese sushi, Western favourites – the list goes on and on and on.

Serving Cantonese and Sichuanese fare, Table8 is considered one of Bali’s best Chinese restaurants. A tea master helps diners match the right tea with their dishes – sort of the way a sommelier does with wine.

Edogin is a stylish Japanese restaurant serving everything from sushi to teppanyaki.

The Cascade Lounge is the perfect spot to while away the afternoon with a good book. If you haven’t bought one of your own, you can borrow one from the library.

Sky Bar is perfect for afternoon tea or pre-dinner cocktails.

The Mulia Deli offers mouth-watering French pastries, truffles, and gourmet meals to go.

Fine Dining

On my second night I had dinner on the terrace overlooking one of the many swimming pools at Soleil, a sophisticated eatery serving delectable Mediterranean cuisine, which is prepared in an open kitchen.

My wagyu beef was piled high and cooked to perfection.. My dining companion enjoyed his seafood pasta as much as I enjoyed my succulent wagyu beef. The desserts, meanwhile, were pure decadence.

Following dinner, my dining companion and I retired to ZJ’s Bar and Lounge, which attracts an attractive crowd of local hypsters in addition to hotel guests.

The trendy nightclub proved the perfect spot to wind down after a full days’s schedule of kickboxing, aquarobics, swimming, splashing in the surf, sun-bathing, dining, and mojoto-drinking.
