Sundara has created quite the buzz this last year as the only proper “beach club” in the Jimbaran Bay area, taking the popular concept to even more sophisticated heights with elegant beachfront dining, a spectacular infinity edge pool and a chic collection of poolside gazebos and loungers.
Perfecting that laid-back, upscale vibe that attracts throngs of jet setters each year to our small island, Sundara’s cuisine is masterminded by a renowned Australian chef and restaurateur who like many of us, moved to Bali for the unmatched lifestyle. With extensive experience throughout Asia, Executive Chef Bunt describes his style as “French-based with Asian overtones, always staying true to classical cooking techniques”. Europe’s most famous bartender and bar owner, Javier de las Muelas of Barcelona’s Dry Martini, created Sundara’s signature cocktail line.
And if that isn’t enough, Tokyo’s most prominent architectural firm, Spin, was commissioned to design the beachfront restaurant. After the sun goes down, an outdoor fire and a live DJ, spinning sultry international tunes, complement al fresco dining. Interior dining rooms feature finely upholstered sofas and custom tableware created by ceramicists at Gaya in Ubud. For private parties, exclusive dining spaces are available overlooking the pool and Jimbaran Bay’s iconic coastline. (www.sundarabali.com; Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran; +62 361 708 333)
