SUNDARA AT FOUR SEASONS RESORT BALI AT JIMBARAN BAY - LONGEST SUNDAY BRUNCH EXPERIENCE

09.55.00

Post-holiday withdrawal is the hardest, but I am more than excited to finally loose my fingers' muscle and share you stories from my latest trip to Bali. It was one of those days where I just wanted to be completely lazy in my villas and do nothing, but I can say that those 4 days were one of the most relaxing and stress-free days I've had almost the entire year. So many of you from Snapchat ask me to do the review of the resort, well I will but give me more time because after the stress-free days now the busy days are here to remind me that I am still alive :) #truthhurts

I am going to start by sharing my fascinating brunch experience at Sundara, which by the way is my current favorite beach club in Jimbaran at the moment. Sundara is owned, managed and located in the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay where I stayed at for two graceful nights. I've heard a good talk about theri Sunday brunch, so that's exactly what I did last Sunday, I guess it was the perfect time to spend a good couple of hours and based on my friends' saying: the food is now better than ever.

Before I start getting into the foodporns, let me show you how gorgeous Sundara looks!

Main entrance. There are several access to enter Sundara, you can go through the main entrance (photo below), through the beach or pedestrian entrance especially if you're the hotel guests
Sundara's outdoor patio - blue sky, gorgeous beach view and all you need is glasses of good cocktails
There were several dining/chilling areas in Sundara, I remember there were two main buildings with the smaller one (near the main entrance) as the more private lounge-style area with a more intimate vibe (and good air-conditioning) where guests were more than welcome to sit around and enjoy the wonderful range cocktails they had on the menu, and as for the larger building, it accommodated a gorgeously decorated dining area and a rather more private area on the second floor with the access to the glorious beach landscape and the Sundara private beach front pool, where yet again, customers are more than welcome to soak in.

I honestly would suggest you guys to come with your friends because it will add more fun to the moment.
The main dining area on the larger building also features an open kitchen and a gorgeous view like this, imagine sitting here for hours.
Poolside cabana for you to chill or take a nap, but if you fancy swimming then don't hesitate to take laps at the 57-metre beach front pool.
Beach vibe: on!
The interior of the smaller building that I mentioned earlier. This was a little more private with this lounge style. Incase you're not aware, Sundara is highly known for its HAPPY HOUR which starts at 5-7 PM daily where you can enjoy the buy one get one promotion.
LONGEST BRUNCH EXPERIENCE (IDR 525k++/pax)
Every Sunday Sundara offers a unique brunch experience you've probably never experienced anywhere else before: six hours of ala-carte brunch with beachfront gazing and grazing accompanied by the unlimited amount of cold, hot and sweet dessert cuisines on small plates. It will probably be your most relaxed brunch as you will not be pressured by the time. It's 6 hours lemme repeat.

Guests will be entertained by the soulful voice of Lydia Rose, I think I was there for almost three hours and her voice was seriously entertaining for the whole time: cuddly soft with a touch of pop and the acoustic songs she sang just sounded so perfect.
Instagenic food before my eyes. I could just upload this to my Instagram.
THE COMPLETE MENU LIST -> HERE
More than 45 menus that you can enjoy for six hours: UNLIMITED.

Ok because there were too many menus that I had, I will do the review generally. I honestly found the quality of the food to be exquisite! None was disappointing to me and I was glad to find that they put good effort in the presentation of the food, and it's proven consistent even after good amount of people having the brunch here as well. It did not take me a lot of time to have my food ready (and I would suggest you to order much in a single order to avoid possible waiting time). Some of my most favorite ones include the Nasi Goreng Quinoa (literally Kampong style fried rice with quinoa seeds replacing what normally is rice), Lombok Oyster Tempura, Salt & Pepper Squid, Swimmer Crab, Chicken Betutu, Soft Shell Crab, Torched Foie Gras, Exotic Fruit Crispy Meringue and Purple Ice.

I also appreciate the fact that they provide information for each menu (represented with single letter) for those who are gluten free, vegans, vegetarian, allergic to nuts, muslim (no pork), or contains alcohol.

There are so many things to love about Sundara and why it is my favorite beach club in Jimbaran at the moment. Good food is the main thing, great cocktail is another specialty. I am pretty familiar with the high price of Four Seasons service, but Sundara offers a quite affordable experience to its guests and not to mention the happy hour so you can defo take advantage of that. Service was friendly and attentive and of course: the location itself! If you were craving for good seafood outside the hotel area, right after having your drinks here over sunset, you can just hop on to your car and take a 5-10 minutes ride to Jimbaran's best seafood places like Menega or James Cafe.

To conclude my experience, definitely one of the most fascinating brunch, it's wide but hassle free and absolutely delicious!
