A Gluttonous Moment in Grand Mirage Resort Bali

You have not visited Bali if you have not tasted Balinese cuisine. The hot and salty spices sensation comes with every bite of Bali food. If you are curious enough to taste it, you can join the Balinese Village buffet dinner in a Bali all-inclusive resort, Grand Mirage Resort & Thalasso Bali. Balinese Village buffet dinner is a weekly event presented by this leading resort to introduce Balinese cuisine and art to the guests. What are the special things about this buffet dinner?

Food & Beverages

The dishes are neatly classified to some stalls spreading out on the Rama Stage area: stall for vegetables, soup, suckling pig, and dessert. The food is from the hand of the seasoned Executive Chef, Matthew Wood, and his Indonesian kitchen team who carefully cook based on the original recipe of the dishes. Balinese Chicken soup, vegetable, suckling pig- they will give you the real gastronomic experiences in Bali.

Not only Balinese cuisine, this buffet dinner also offers Indonesian cuisine such as beef rendang, fried rice, and chicken satay. The desserts, local snacks, are exceptional as well.



Everybody is greeted by the woman behind the reception desk of the dinner who he or she has to check the seat numbers with. It is true that Bali is renowned for its friendly people as all the staff there, from reception to cashier, are smiley. Moreover, they are responsive enough to clean the table when you are done with your food and drink.



Taking place in front of an open stage on the seashore of Indian Ocean makes the atmosphere of the buffet dinner more relaxing. The ambiance with the soothing breeze and crushing wave sound around remind everybody that they are on holiday- the time to break all the routines.



Grand Mirage Resort & Thalasso Bali tries to open the guests’ eyes to the art performances in Bali. During the dinner which starts at 7 pm on Saturday, there is a Rindik performance- a group of men playing traditional music instruments that are made from bamboos.

On top of that, the Bali resort presents a traditional Balinese dance, Kecak. It is a performance combining Ramayana story and trance ritual. This art performance was initiated by a German painter, Walter Spies who was inspired by trance ritual in a village. Then he worked together with Balinese dancer to mix it with Ramayana story.

The Balinese Village night in Grand Mirage Resort & Thalasso Bali is designed to depict Bali in a wonderful way. It presents awesome Bali nature, spicy Balinese cuisine, beautiful art performances, and Balinese people kindness.
