arsana estate - dining


Our Chef at Arsana Estate is definitely the jewel in our crown. His previous appointments include Executive Chef at the world-renowned 5-star Pan Pacific Hotel, as well as winner of numerous Master Chef Awards in Indonesia and Asia. Guests are encouraged to speak with him with regards meal options, specific dietary requirements and any special requests they may have during their stay. The villa offers a suggestion menu (featuring Indonesian and International dishes) to make ordering easier, but we hope that guests do take advantage of our highly skilled and talented Chef, who brings with him a myriad of dishes from all over the world.

Being in Bali, this is a good opportunity to try favourite Indonesian dishes such as Nasi Goreng (fried rice) Mie Goreng (fried noodles), or Soto Ayam (spicy chicken soup), as well as Nasi Campur – the everyday Balinese meal that can be customised to suit the occasion. Nasi Campur is comprised of rice and a selection of vegetables, meat or fish and other accompaniments that might include egg, tofu, and the fried soybean cakes known as ‘tempe’. Another ‘must try’ is Rendang Daging – a famous Indonesian delicacy created from succulent chunks of beef stewed in coconut cream and spices.

Salads include squid with green mango; grilled prawn with pomelo and apple, and Caesar with grilled chicken, while other Western dishes on the menu include hamburgers, pizzas, pasta, and delights such as grilled tenderloin with asparagus and oyster sauce, or rolled chicken breast stuffed with emmental cheese and cream mushroom sauce. Tapas and snacks include traditional Indonesian Tahu Isi – stuffed tofu, and chicken satay with spicy peanut sauce. Dessert specialities such as watermelon granite with vanilla yogurt, and jackfruit fritters with pineapple sauce (made from estate-grown fruit), are not to be missed. Beverages include freshly squeezed fruit juices, spirits, wines and cocktails.

To get the best out of the kitchen, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before or over breakfast so that the staff can arrange deliveries or do the shopping in a timely fashion during the day.  All groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus a 20% handling fee which is subject to service charge and government tax.  Guests will be requested to provide a float for groceries in advance with the amount dependent on the number of guests. Staff will shop and keep the receipts for your reference.

The Arsana Estate – Tabanan 5 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite Havens

Arsana means ‘flow’ in Sanskrit, and not only does the villa’s name aptly describe the Sungi River that meanders past its lower boundary, but also the way The Arsana Estate’s individual bedroom and living pavilions cascade down the hillside into a valley of birdsong. Scores of eye-catching butterfly and bird species, including kingfishers, flit through the expansive terraced gardens and trees throughout the day, while the cicadas and frogs take over the nightshift with their chirping melodies and bass notes. Indeed, water features large at The Arsana Estate, where ponds, water walls, waterfalls, and an 18 x 8-metre swimming pool with a separate children’s section will refresh, relax and delight villa guests.

The villa’s sleek modern structures, with their ironwood shingle roofs and abundance of glass, reflect the ambiance of the location and the purity of the natural surroundings, while the interiors are characterised with a bold use of colour and super-comfortable furnishings. A fully stocked bar with red lanterns and matching cushioned bar stools is an obvious focal point, as is the home theatre and games room complete with a pool table. Valuable and renowned artworks line much of what solid wall space there is, while the front facade of the living pavilion is an abstract notion of floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows that remain open to the elements. The villa’s five double bedroom suites (all contain annexes suitable for children), each housed in its own private stand-alone pavilion, are spread leisurely across the terraces of the estate.

Fully outfitted for families, with a profusion of kids’ toys, plus games and activities for adults too! This stunning sanctuary with its team of personal butlers, housekeepers and chefs, offers guests nothing but pleasure and relaxation.
