Dine with an Uninterrupted Aquamarine View at Koral at the Apurva Kempinski Bali
The Apurva Kempinski Bali premieres Koral, a new concept of underwater bistronomic dining experience, the first of its kind in Bali
Elevate your dining experience at Koral, Bali’s first-ever aquarium dining experience. Here, guests can indulge on elegant bistronomic dishes inspired by Indonesian coastal flavours at an impressive venue. Koral at the Apurva Kempinski Bali combines delectable dining and casual ambience to create an immersive dining experience, where guests will find all their senses stimulated by exquisite dishes and a hypnotic soundtrack that captures the magic and mystery of the underwater world.
The Apurva Kempinski Bali, which opens its doors earlier this year, has never stopped to provide new innovations for its guests, and Koral is one of them. The overall design of this pioneering restaurant combines the tropical characteristics of Bali and the great Majapahit empire. Interior-wise, Koral is adorned with teak wood ceilings and traditional red clay brick walls, which frame the aquamarine views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, monochrome black and white tegel tiles, which is popular among the royal courts, further adds the sense of historic splendour. On the other side of aquarium windows and glass-roofed tunnel, a bunch of tropical fish swirl in a kaleidoscope of colours, creating a breathtaking underwater view that is a delight to the eye.
The menu at Koral is dominated by fresh seafood and grilled goodness crafted from fresh, local ingredients from the archipelago. Executive Sous Chef Imam Fayumi and his team expertly transform the humble ingredients and favourite local spices into an elegant fine-dining menu. Some of the signature à la carte dishes at Koral are “Tomatoes Bedugul”, a bright and colourful medley of ripe tomatoes and red tomato consommé, with fresh baby vegetables, creamy mozzarella cheese and tomato oil sorbet; “Lump Blue Crab” salad with zingy Granny Smithy apple, crisp jicama and aromatic lemon basil and ginger; and the locally inspired “Prawn & Lime”, which combines stuffed jumbo prawns with spicy dabu-dabu salsa, silky potato gnocchi and spicy tomato and chili sauce.
Elsewhere, Koral also offers a four-course degustation menu, featuring the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients with sommelier-selected wine pairings for the ultimate underwater dining experience. In addition to the stellar collection of premium wines from around the world, Koral also boasts a live cocktail station where talented mixologists are ready to prepare creative concoctions to complement the rich flavour of Asian spices. “Spiced Ink Mojito”, a signature cocktail at Koral, is a heady blend of spiced rum, squid ink mint syrup, lime fruit ginger and kaffir leaves. For more choices of beverages, Koral has a variety of locally inspired house creations, handcrafted bubbly cocktails and a selection of Indonesian craft beers.
Bringing your little ones to the table? No worries, Koral also has a dedicated kids’ menu featuring popular movie characters and an interesting selection of fresh juices and mocktails made from healthy and exotic Indonesian ingredients such as Balinese wild berry, jasmine tea and lavender puree.
