Bejana, the signature restaurant of The Ritz-Carlton, Bali offers an unparalleled dining experience, a culinary journey across the Indonesian archipelago, treating guests to the rich and exotic flavors of authentic island cuisine. Perched high on the limestone cliffs, views are as impressive as the cuisine is tasty with diners enjoying a breathtaking panorama over the sparkling Indian Ocean. Highly acclaimed, Bejana’s most recent accolade was the ‘Luxurious Scenic Setting’ award at the prestigious World Luxury Restaurant Awards in July.
Presenting a unique mix of five-star flair, and relaxed ambience the restaurant was cleverly designed by Burega Farnell, to integrate seamlessly with the limestone cliffs. A blend of traditional and contemporary Balinese design elements influence the interiors, where three distinct levels include the atmospheric Culinary Cave where guests can join fascinating cooking classes, and a stylish dining room with a romantic atmosphere created by intimate tables especially designed for couples. The lower level features an expansive open-air wooden deck, with cozy lounges and casual outdoor seating.
