Raffles Bali - Farm Terrace

Farm Terrace

Local Cuisine and Cooking Classes

Bali is renowned as an island of incredible greenness. Terraced rice paddies, dense thickets of banana and coconut palms, verdant coffee plantations – all supported by a soil enriched with volcanic ash. Here at Raffles Bali, we respect the island’s agricultural heritage by growing herbs, fruits and vegetables in our garden. At the Farm Terrace, you can select your own ingredients and then learn to prepare them in a cooking or mixology class hosted by our expert chefs and mixologists. When you sit down to sample your creations at the rustic trestle table beneath a pergola entwined with vines, you’ll be getting an authentic taste of Bali.

In addition to professional culinary classes and private dinners, the Farm Terrace also hosts a very special cultural experience for up to six people. It begins in the late afternoon sunshine with a walk along the flower-strewn pathway to the Resort Temple. Arrive in time for a blessing by the local priest, before making your way to the Farm Terrace via the torch-lit path, just in time for sundowners. In the balmy warmth of an evening fragranced with the spicy scent of night-blooming flowers, take your seat for dinner. Each dish and the ingredients that went into it is explained by the chef, giving you a sense of the island’s astonishing natural bounty. In between courses, explore the star-studded night sky with the help of the terrace telescope. Exclusively for Raffles Bali residents only.

Romance By The Water

Perched at the top of the tallest rock on the resort’s golden beach, Purnama sets the stage for an evening of fairy-tale romance. It all begins with an aperitif at Loloan Beach Bar and Grill ahead of a hand-in-hand stroll along the shoreline. The sand is cool and soothing beneath your feet, and the glassy sea reflects the colours of another magnificent Jimbaran sunset. With the show almost over and the first stars appearing in the firmament, torches guide your path towards Purnama.

The bridge across the rocks to the raised platform of the bale glows with light spilled from candle lit. The cent of sandalwood marks your arrival, to be replaced by the soft sighing of the sea. As you take your seats, prepare for a procession of exquisite seafood sourced for your delight and paired with fine white wines. For decades, epicures have travelled to this part of Bali for its ocean bounty, and there is no better way to taste it than here, at a candlelit table set just a few metres above the ink-dark water. Not just for honeymooners, dinner at the Purnama is the perfect way to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary – or for an unforgettable Bali proposal. Exclusively for Raffles Bali residents only.

A Gift From Nature

During the resort’s construction, our builders stumbled upon an unexpected treasure: a natural cave set into the hillside, with stunning views overlooking the green hill surrounding the resort. From the lichen creeping across the uneven rock walls to the fine sand that dusts the floor, the cave has been kept in all its original natural glory, so that you can experience the same thrill of discovery when you come upon it for the first time. The Secret Cave private dining experience begins, like many of Bali’s best cultural rituals, with sunset cocktails. Drinks presented on the top of the cave, with the last rays of sunshine dressing the sky and sea in gold.

With the blessing over and darkness descending, torches light the way to the cave’s entrance. The evening air is laced with sandalwood, and reverberates to the sound of age-old Balinese music. Each course is explained in loving detail by our culinary experts. The curated menu is prepared using seasonal ingredients from the resort garden and local farmers, and accompanied by a selection of whimsically spiced cocktails and fine champagne. An intimate experience that is beyond the expected. The dining experience is exclusively available for Raffles Bali residents only.
