Bail’s shining star
The Bali Oberoi is a corner of beauty and elegance on Kuta beach, where traditional stone buildings and statues of the gods blend together with charming lotus-filled pools and the gentle beauty of the people. It is a world that is very close to paradise, an Eden that invites us to enjoy a life of harmony accompanied by the murmur of the waves.
In the Kura Kura restaurant, the breeze from the sea surrounds the fountain. Placed on the tables are beautiful dishes adorned with elegant combinations: herbed shrimp placed on forks, ready to be lifted into your mouth, gnocchis with shrimp and pesto, tandoori- style lamb chops and rice noodles with a spicy peanut sauce. Chef Martin N. Macleod knows how to combine the flavors of the tropics with Asian savoir faire and the Kura Kura offers a wide selection of exotic dishes that combine Bali seasonings with the refinement of India and the elegance of Europe. This fusion cuisine beckons us to the pleasures of the table and awakens the senses of the guests.
In the garden is the stage of the theater where, accompanied by the Gamelan orchestra, traditional dances are performed in which dragons fight against princes. Tables are set up under the stars for a torchlit dinner, for enjoying the Barong or Râmâyana.
The Kura Kura is one of the most exclusive restaurants in Bali, and its setting is an invitation to believe in the gods. The Bali Oberoi is a marvelous hotel with beautiful rooms and Spa, and dining in the enchanted garden is an exceptional experience for visitors who appreciate good Asian or international cuisine.
