Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay has introduced Sundara, a new beachfront restaurant.

The name is the Sanskrit word for ‘beautiful’ and according to the hotel, it pays tribute to the “glowing sun that warms this Indian Ocean hotspot”.

According to Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay General Manager, Michael Branham, Sundara offers a perfect mix of five-star flair and relaxed beach-club vibe.

He said with its direct beachfront location and panoramic views of Jimbaran Bay, Sundara provides a sexy and sophisticated hideaway.

“Sundara will become a must-see landmark for all of Bali,” says Michael Branham, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. “We’re creating a very social meeting place that will attract a stylish crowd from well beyond our Resort

“It’s part of our ongoing desire to evolve and deliver an outstanding and exciting experience for our guests.”

Designed by Koichi Yasuhiro from Tokyo’s renowned Design Studio SPIN, the beachfront Sundara features 29,437 square feet (2,923 square metres) on two levels, including a variety of indoor and outdoor settings.

Two soaring Balinese-style pavilions create a distinctive roofline, while inside the décor combines Bali’s unique artistic heritage with an ambiance of relaxed luxury.

Helmed by Executive Chef Greg Bunt and the restaurant’s General Manager Jan-Peer Lehfeldt, Sundara feels modern yet relaxing, cutting edge yet natural.

The menu is eclectic and international. For lunch, guests choose from shared plates of sushi, salads and wood-fired pizzas, served on the open-air rooftop deck with panoramic views. For the afternoon, guests may book a day bed by the infinity edge pool, change into swimsuits and enjoy cocktails and casual cuisine by the water.

In the evening, Sundara transforms into one of Bali’s most sophisticated dining experiences. Guests can expect an abundance of vibrant, innovative and classic flavours, celebrating steak and seafood. Late at night, the beachside mood will be candlelit and sexy with innovative wine and cocktail selections.
