IN THE HEART OF SEMINYAK
WARUNG JERAMI IS A CHIC, STREET-FRONT EATERY CENTRALLY LOCATED WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO THE BALI DELI IN SEMINYAK, ONE OF BALI’S MOST STYLISH LOCATIONS.
With its showpiece window front on one of the island’s most desirable streets, Warung Jerami is the signature restaurant of Villa Jerami, a contemporary nineteen-villa compound that also features a full-service spa. Offering in-house and walk-in guests a full spectrum of experiences, Villa Jerami offers attractive spa and dining packages designed for spa addicts and foodies alike looking for some much deserved ‘me-time’, a romantic interlude or half-day girls’ getaway.
Attractively priced, half-day packages are inclusive of an al fresco or air-conditioned lunch or dinner indulgence at Warung Jerami, where a Japan-trained Balinese chef prepares both classic Indonesian signature dishes (including sampler feast platters and Ayam Betutu) as well as Western favorites such as delectable BBQ pork ribs and savory seafood delights sourced straight from Bali’s bountiful ocean. Set within a Japanese-inspired minimalist garden, Villa Jerami is the perfect place to treat yourself to a few stolen moments. The restaurant and spa teams have created irresistible packages to include a pampering spa treatment at Jerami Spa, where soothing energy and the sound of flowing water against the spa’s bamboo backsplash create the ultimate recipe for relaxation. Feel yourself unwind as you walk down the spa’s candlelit corridor, leading to an intimate spa setting with six double treatment rooms stocked with locally sourced herbal spa products that include handmade scrubs.
Or if learning something new is on your holiday agenda, take an inside look at Bali’s famous culinary culture by booking one of Warung Jerami’s distinctive cooking classes. Conducted by Chef Suriana, his contagious passion for cooking is a treat for anyone interested in gaining a unique perspective into Balinese cooking styles and daily life. The day begins with an eye-opening trip to a traditional local market where all participants get to bargain for the day’s freshest product. Returning to Villa Jerami before midday, cooking begins in earnest as Chef Suriana guides you through the intricacies of creating spice enhanced flavors. Prepare to learn how to create innovative dishes that include fish curry, shredded spiced beef, chicken satay, fragrant yellow rice and fresh fruit in coconut milk. And don’t forget to enjoy the fruit of your labor as you indulge in a sumptuous lunch together.
Owned by a successful group of Jakartan real estate developers, it is obvious that modern design is top priority. Warung Jerami is accessible from Jalan Kunti, which makes it a sight for sore eyes after a morning of shopping, or from within the manicured grounds of Villa Jerami, tucked discreetly behind living walls. With an impressive variety of one- to three-bedroom pool villas, Villa Jerami is a natural draw for honeymooners and families alike. Fully-appointed kitchens, comfortable bedroom suites with pool views and stylish sun decks create a plush residential atmosphere within Seminyak’s urban surroundings.
The restaurant’s open-air bar and lounge is an inviting and relaxing spot to unwind or wind up for the evening ahead. To hydrate, order the house favorite: an ice cold Strawberry Peach Tale, a heady concoction of frozen strawberries and peaches blended with a sweet touch of peach syrup. During the restaurant’s lively ‘Happy Hour’, innovative cocktail specials and an impressive wine selection are the perfect complement to the hip garden setting. With seating and standing capacity for up to 70 guests, Warung Jerami is the stress-free solution to planning your next private event.
