1. Dine and find Nemo at this magical underwater kingdom!: Koral Restaurant at The Apurva Kempinski Bali

Imagine stepping into an Atlantean restaurant, colourful fish all around you, a soft blue glow lighting up your surroundings, and the delicious smell of fresh seafood!

That’s what awaits you as you step into Bali’s first underwater aquarium restaurant (that’s right, just like in the Maldives!). Time to discover The Apurva Kempinski’s little gem – Koral Restaurant, which promises an out-of-this-world dining experience with top-notch food and a stunning view around you!

Now, for a grand affair, why not opt for their four-course dinner so you can sample some of their favourite dishes? Caviar to start with, accompanied by poached clams and if you’re feeling like something a little more refreshing, the next course is a succulent tomato burrata salad (sourced locally from the hills of Bedugul!).

Coming to the main course, get ready for it to tantalise your senses – a stuffed chicken wing paired with potato coconut mousseline, cauliflower cream, and shimeji mushrooms. Finish off your delicious meal with a zesty tangerine tartlet! Make sure to ask for the best wine pairings to really complete your dining experience!

Despite Koral Restaurant being open only during the evening, we highly recommend you to come a little earlier so as to explore the sprawling lands where sits the resort!

Or better yet, sign up for their Sunday Brunchcation at their other dining site – Pala Restaurant! You’ll marvel at its modern architecture, love its beachfront location (and beach club!), and wish you were staying there so you can have fun in each one of its many crystal pools!

2. An abandoned plane in the paddy fields transformed into a restaurant: Keramas Aero Park, Gianyar

There are several abandoned places in Bali. And some of the most absurd of all are the abandoned planes.

And for this one, it’s found in the middle of the paddy fields. Can anything get more ridiculous than this?

Although we have no idea about the origins of the plane, the area is actually a restaurant and bar called ‘Keramas Aero Park’, located not far from the Keramas Beach, which has been regarded as “the next Kuta”.

If you notice that the color of the plane has changed, it’s due to reconstruction that had taken place before the restaurant officially opened its doors to customers. It was originally white with a budget airline logo when it was transferred to the area, while the blue one is the most recent.

20. Hang out in a Garage at Man Shed

This ‘garage’ looks so authentic, you can almost catch the whiff of motor-oil in the air.

??????????

Tables are made from repurposed old Vespas, so you can actually sit as though you’re riding the scooters.

??????????

The quirky wall decor features old license plates, emergency lamps, electrical fan covers, and even – yes we’re serious – mannequins’ torsos.

Since Man Shed’s grand opening in January 2014, people keep coming back because there’s always something new to marvel at.

You’ll see antique motorcycles, Bajajs, and the latest addition – a 1945 HD military bike complete with side-car and a fish tank.

??????????

Check out the lampshades over the bar – they’re actually repurposed helmets!

??????????

And before we forget about food, the menu offers a variety of dishes ranging from chap chai (Chinese style stir-fried mix of veggies) to steak, which are quite good but of course, not exactly your fine dining quality.

No biggies, though, since the highlight is its grungy laidback atmosphere and ice-cold beer.

Have we given you reason enough to visit?
