A dazzling confluence of gorgeous beachfront location and superb cuisine and mixology, Sundara is one of Bali’s preeminent destinations for memorable dining and indulgent beachfront relaxation. Situated within the verdant landscape of the secluded Jimbaran Bay headland occupied by the prestigious Four Seasons Resort Bali, Sundara enjoys both wonderful panoramas across Jimbaran Bay, and a sublime tranquility, comfortably removed from the crowded mainstream tourist beaches of Bali. Since its opening in 2013, Sundara has attracted the appreciation of a discerning clientele, and is consistently ranked among the true gems of Bali’s panoply of excellent restaurants.

Housed within two free-standing Balinese-style pavilions- set on either side of a paved outdoor dining terrace- Sundara also incorporates a boutique beach club facility- an impressively long infinity pool extends across the beach frontage, with built-in comfortable daybeds, private cabanas, and direct access to the beach. The Sundara Bar- a comfortable air conditioned space of relaxed sophistication and accomplished mixology- is housed within one pavilion;  a larger twin level pavilion accommodates a variety of dining spaces and private rooms, plus a second bar set on the upper level open-air balcony.

Open daily from 11:00 am, Sundara serves a light, all-day dining menu, complementing the modern Australian cuisine of grilled seafood and meats that anchors the lunch and dinner menus.

Enticing promotions at Sundara include the popular Sundowners- daily between 5 pm and 7 pm- two for one cocktails- coinciding nicely with the evening sunset. And the signature Sunday Brunch, served every Sunday from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm, offers a generous selection of the restaurants most popular dishes at very approachable prices. Table bookings are definitely recommended- and special events and promotions are  updated in the Sundara Facebook Page.
