We had a very deep sleep (you know the kind of sleep that you feel all your bones have sunk into the mattress?) and woke up to a glorious Bali morning!
After much of a struggle, we dragged our reluctant son out of bed (btw, if anyone knows of an effective and pain free way to wake a teenager up in the morning, please write a book about it :) I was curious to verify if the breakfast is really 'out of this world' as everyone had attested to. The set up of Boneka restauarnt has a separate kitchen/buffet area, cheery relaxing dining room and an outdoor terrace, all surrounded by infinity fountains overlooking the hotel ground.
As soon as we settled at our table, there are cheerful servers parading around offering you their fine delicacies du jour and freshly baked pastries. Of course, you can also order from the endless selection on their menu or choose from the cook-to-order buffet area, but why walk when you have everything being brought to your table? Hehe, that's why I got punished with this supersize tummy :) Now, hope you are hungry cause there's a lot of food coming up .....
The vitamin drinks - fresh fruit smoothies, the passion fruit is heavenly!
fresh tuna sashimi
Indonesian rice porridge
assorted dim sum
Indonesian homecooked specialty - personally prepared by the hostess
American steak and eggsmie goreng
fresh fruit crepes
whipped cream waffles
my son's craving for a good ol' chocolate donut
Hehe, we were not that greedy, these were different dishes that we tried over the entire stay. Of course, our growing teenager was not satisfied with just a small breakfast like this, lucky there is a delicatessan inside the hotel serving heavenly pastries and fresh sandwiches to keep his stomach happy between meals.
their cutom order cakes and fine chocolates are absolutely irresistable! there is even a chocolate fountain with fresh strawberries for hotel guests to enjoy.
fresh natural gelato pastrami sandwich
This chocolate cake and cafe latte were sinfully rich! There are jars of these fresh chocolate chips cookies for customers to munch on :)
Yes I hear you, what kind of trip journal is that without any famous sightseeing spots. That'll be next, my Bali - sight ......
