  • Ju-Ma-Na Restaurant at Banyan Tree Bali

    Scenic Dining on Bali’s Southernmost Cliff


    Ju-Ma-Na at the Banyan Tree Ungasan pairs fine dining with spectacular views from its lofty 70m-high cliff perch over the Indian Ocean. Sophisticated décor with contemporary art sculptures and rattan chairs adorn its interiors, and large seamless floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows allow great views to accompany the delish French menu with a Japanese twist.

    Comprising a main restaurant and bar, Ju-Ma-Na offers a la carte and degustation menus in a romantic setting on two levels. Its spacious wooden deck is also one of the island’s best chill-out spots for those who enjoy ocean breezes under the stars.

  • Ju-Ma-Na, which is Banyan Tree Ungasan’s premier dining venue, is an electric buggy ride down the resort’s garden-lined paths that follow the undulating landscaping of the Bukit limestone hills. The restaurant sits on the furthest cliff edge, clad in a dominant sandy cream-and-white theme that contrasts with the blue ocean backdrop. Large wooden doors with pearlescent frames open into a foyer where a winding staircase leads you up to an upper level with a bar, lounge and outdoor sky deck hosting glamorous cocktail events and parties.

    Dining tables are positioned on both levels, with the first featuring an open kitchen surrounded by a neat layout of minimalist setups with sea and cockleshell-inspired tableware. Tall ceilings feature a wavy design form and extra large windowpanes give Ju-Ma-Na its outstanding sense of spaciousness. The distant horizon, surf lines and a clean sandy coastline against rock formations are clearly visible through the glass. Inside, the natural ocean sounds are substituted by elegant contemporary lounge music from Ju-Ma-Na’s own soundtrack. Those preferring natural sea breezes and sounds can opt for a private table-for-two at the outer balcony, with even more outstanding views.

    The dining experience here is all about taking it easy and going with your own flow. Before heading to your table, you can begin your evening with pre-dinner signature cocktails on the lofty terrace or at the cosy lounge. Highlights include a chilli martini with curled chilli skin garnishing your martini glass rim, and which tastes as striking as it looks. There’s also the fun to look at lava lamp cocktail – champagne in glass with a bowl of bright strawberry mash and ‘ginger caviar’ that continually swirl with the bubbles after you pour them in. Another quirky creation is the fragrant Ju-Ma-Na Royale, comprising champagne infused with Yuzu essence with a floating red rose petal that adds visual appeal to its delicate scent.

    With a rare and eclectic selection of French cuisine, the presentations are mini-works of art on stylish plates that make us pause to admire. The menu lists gourmet creations based on fresh seafood, meat and vegetarian choices. A recommended starter is the ama ebi tartar with avruga caviar, avocado guacamole and miso dressing. For mains, the wagyu No. 9 Duo is a delicious and filling choice with a grilled striploin and syrah-braised short rib. The 70% valrhona grand cru soft chocolate cake makes for a terrific finale for dessert. At a small corner on the top level is its wine collection boasting fine and rare selections such as Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild, and Château D’Yquem. There are also sets of Moroccan hookahs (or shisha pipes) with fruity-flavoured selections, for those who wish to puff away in style.
