After the huge success of our Rumari and Friends event in January, Raffles Bali is pleased to announce Rumari and Friends Chapter Two on 31 March and 1 April 2023.

Rumari and Friends is a celebration of cultures, evoking a melting pot atmosphere through friendships and the sharing of traditions and flavours. Combining the expertise, ingredients, and personal styles of two world-renowned chefs allows the creation of unique and exclusive gastronomic experiences for our guests.

This collaborative dinner experience is set to be an unforgettable one with Raffles Bali’s Culinary Director Chef Gaetan Biesuz and his incredible culinary team welcoming Chef Ricardo from MONO Hong Kong to their kitchen.

Classically trained in French fine dining, Venezuelan native Chef Ricardo now uses his knowledge and technique to elevate the complex and diverse South American cuisine of his roots in a modern tasting menu at his breakout restaurant MONO. Awarded a Michelin Star and named one of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia by @theworlds50best in 2022, there are surely many more accolades to come in 2023.

From South America to South East Asia, where Chef Gaetan’s passion for the local cuisines shines through in his creative dishes on Rumari’s menu. Sustainability is key in Chef Gaetan’s kitchens, with the majority of ingredients hand-selected from local growers, fishermen, and producers or the resort’s own farm gardens. Expect Rumari and Friends Chapter Two to showcase the absolute finest Indonesian produce and exotic tastes from around the archipelago.

Extraordinary dishes deserve an extraordinary setting with which Rumari never fails to disappoint. The main dining room’s breathtaking ocean views and renowned Jimbaran sunsets create an idyllic backdrop to this exclusive evening. Surrounded by nature, the fruits of the surrounding land on the table, the deep-rooted connection with the island of Bali is discernible.

Fine dining enthusiasts and sustainability connoisseurs alike will be moved by this evening of connection exploration, and innovation within the gastronomic horizon. Rumari continues to delight even the most refined palates of well-travelled connoisseurs on their visit to Raffles Resort Bali.

For over a century Raffles Hotel Singapore has been the epitome of style and class in Singapore. In colonial Singapore the hotel and its famous watering hole, The Long Bar, was one of the most popular spots for Singapore’s expats to socialise and do business over icy cold gin & tonics (to keep malaria away of course).

However, while men drank freely, it was frowned upon for women to be seen drinking alcohol or appearing inebriated. This is where legendary barman Ngiam Tong Boon stepped in to ensure the ladies would not be left glumly to their tea and fruit juices. Being not only a great barman but also a smart businessman, Boon hid gin and cherry brandy in a fruity cocktail for the ladies, and the men in the bar were none the wiser. Hence, The Singapore Sling was born and is now an icon of Raffles Singapore and also a staple on cocktail menus worldwide.

As a nod to the century old Singapore Sling, The Writers Bar at Raffles Bali Resort presents their own signature cocktail, the Bali Sling. The story of its creation is very different from its Singaporean counterpart but no less meaningful. Concocted from gin, Balinese arak infused with blue pea tea, tangy jackfruit, and grenadine, the Bali Sling is truly a reflection of the fertile land of the island and the produce that it nurtures. The magic sights and smells of Bali, from bustling markets, to fragrant frangipani, and vibrant tropical fruits are the inspiration behind this drink that will no doubt become iconic in its own right.

In keeping with the eco-friendly principles of Raffles Bali, almost all of the elements of the Bali Sling are home grown either within the resort, or on the island of Bali. The blue pea flower and jackfruit are handpicked from the resort’s farm gardens, which also supply the kitchens with wonderful fresh produce.

One of the most important elements of the drink is the Balinese arak, a local spirit made from the sap of tapped palm trees or rice. The Dewi Sri brand used at The Writers Bar is a family owned company that has been distilling the local drink since 1968 in the coastal town of Sanur.

Honouring the goddess of rice, fertility, successful harvest, and family prosperity the name Dewi Sri is celebrated in Bali and abroad.

The Bali Sling is not only delicious, but is beautiful to look at. The tall glass topped with a frangipani flower is quintessentially Balinese. Frangipanis grow all over the resort and are a beautifully fragrant flower that is used for Balinese Hindu offerings as well as for decoration. You will also notice that your Bali Sling comes with a cassava starch straw. Raffles Bali has eliminated the use of plastic straws in the resort, instead using locally made products that are 100% biodegradable.

Just as no trip to Singapore is complete without a Singapore Sling at The Long Bar, a Bali Sling at The Writers Bar at Raffles Resort is a must for the full Bali Island experience.

In a celebration of fine dining, world-class wines, and opulent Balinese hospitality the evening of December 3rd saw Culinary Director Chef Gaetan Biesuz and Chef Agung present a lavish 7-course degustation dinner paired with wines from world-renowned Chateau Angélus Vineyard.

This illustrious estate in Saint-Emilion, France has been in the de Boüard de Laforest family since 1782 and through eight generations the prestige of Angélus has been of the utmost importance, ensuring that the name which connotes excellence and timelessness, continues to shine.

In keeping with the exemplary standards of both Rumari and Chateau Angélus, each element of the night was expertly curated by Chef Gaetan and his culinary team. From Rumari’s setting perched over the mesmerising views of Jimbaran Bay that serve to enhance the luxurious experience, to the heritage service and unsurpassed quality of each dish delighting even the most well-travelled culinary aficionados.

True to Rumari’s mission of sustainability 80% of the ingredients used in the night’s menu were procured from within Indonesia. This has been achieved by working hand-in-hand with local producers and growers ensures impeccable quality, local enrichment, and that the freshest ingredients are at hand. Only the finest ingredients from the Indonesian archipelago and select imported elements have been chosen to excite and intrigue the refined palate.

The culinary journey began with sweet amaebi prawns with the bright Asian flavors of coriander, chili, and sweet yellow corn complimented with a Grand Vin Blanc Château Angelus 2020, and continued with locally raised Balinese heritage pig with a modern twist on traditional sambal ijo as an emulsion paired with La Fleur de Boüard 2019. Rougié foie gras was highlighted with kefir lime and fragrant Balinese long pepper and served with Le Carillon de l’Angelus 2015. Buttery Canadian lobster came with green asparagus, red wine buer sauce and Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard 2014, while rich duck was paired with Chateau Angelus 2014. Tender Wagyu beef with mushroom and bone marrow served with Château Angelus 2012 finished the savoury courses.

With the precision and technicality of classical French cooking combined with the Indonesian archipelago’s depth and range of flavours, each course was a masterpiece of innovation. South-East Asian elements including fragrant kefir lime, earthy Balinese long pepper, and rich Papuan vanilla, are designed to layer components on the palate, bringing out each flavour in turn. A number of the most flavourful of ingredients included in Chef Gaetan’s dishes are either unknown by chefs outside of Indonesia or certainly underutilised. Even the most refined palates may find they are captivated by unfamiliar elements.

As the sun dips below the horizon, seemingly diving into the glassy waters of Jimbaran Bay, the enchanting sound of nightly chorus of nocturnal insects and geckos begins. The evening wrapped up with berries from the cool highlands of Bedugul paired with a Taittinger Prelude Grand Crus Brut and petit fours.

This intoxicating mix of the idyllic setting, cuisine that goes beyond the realms of the expected, and world-class wines is truly an experience for the elite epicure.

The traditional dishes of Bali are a huge part of the culture in Indonesia as most of them date back centuries ago, almost as old as the culture itself. Here are Bali’s local cuisines if you want to experience the diverse culture of the city. 

Sate Lilit 

Sate Lilit | Raffles Bali


Bali is known for its grilled meat dish, Sate Lilit. The word “lilit” roughly means “wrap around” wherein the meat is usually wrapped around the skewers. Traditionally, lemongrass stalks are used as skewers instead of bamboo skewers served with satay sauce made of fresh peanut – a must for any true satay fan. The Sate Lilit recipes are dated centuries back and are one of the best-known staples in the city. In Bali, it has been handed down through generations and has become a staple food, too. Indulge in The Writers Bar, one of the Raffles restaurant’s indigenous tapas “Sate Lilit Ikan” from the island-fresh produce of Jimbaran village. 

Babi Guling 

babi guling | raffles bali

In Indonesia, a suckling pig is commonly known as Babi Guling. It is one of Bali’s most famed dishes. The pig is stuffed and infused with a spicy concoction typically including turmeric, coriander seeds, lemongrass, black pepper, and garlic, and traditionally spit-roasted. Pork is then placed on a spit and roasted over an open fire. This Balinese delicacy is usually served during special occasions and formal gatherings, but can often be found in warungs, traditional Indonesian casual eateries. The dish is so popular in Bali that most warungs specialize and serve only Babi Guling as their signature dish.  

Rumari at Raffles Bali creates a rendition of the old-time favorite Babi Guling. You can find it on the Rumari Discovery menu with slow-roasted organic heritage pork from the great partnership with “Black Heritage Pig Farm”, the only self-sustainable, organic Farm in Bali located in Baturiti. The dish is commonly combined with urab pakis salad and aromatic fragrant jus.  

Ayam Betutu 

Ayam Betutu | raffles bali

A Balinese dish, Betutu is a combination of chicken steamed or roasted in a rich curry sauce. It is a popular dish in Bali, Indonesia, due to its high spice and seasoning content – a signature taste of Bali cuisine and a favorite of both locals and tourists. An even spicier version can be made with uncooked onion slices mixed with red chili peppers and coconut oil, making it a must-try for tourists in Bali. 

Tipat Blayag 

Tipat Blayag originated in Penglatan Village, Buleleng Regency. It was seldom prepared to entertain guests who visited the village in ancient times as a traditional dish, but today, it is often hunted by tourists looking for its unique food taste. 

This dish’s ingredients consist of ketupat or tipat in Balinese, vegetables, grated coconut, soybeans, shredded chicken, fried chicken feet, chili sauce, and chicken skin crackers. It can easily be found in North Bali. Savor one of Rumari’s favorite Tipat Blayag during breakfast at Raffles Bali.
