The Secret Romantic Dinner takes you on a very special and spiritual journey. Transported into the mythical and magical world of Balinese culture this once in a life time experience begins at sunset as you arrive to the holy Dalem Segara one of the most spiritual temples in Bali.
Magical Dinner at the Dalem Segara Temple overlooking Hanging Gardens of Bali
Surrounded by anient architecture in the heart of the temple you will be blessed by the Balinese priest or “Mangku” who performs with you a Balinese Hindu purification ritual.
After this unique experience, in a completely relaxed state you are invited to a specially prepared dining bale over looking the magnificent view of the jungle valley below and the mountains of Bali in the distance.
As the night falls the temple, the bale and the paths leading into the jungle below are lit up with a myriad of twinkling candles. There you will be served refreshing drinks of local fruits and exotic Balinese appetizers.
The “Pièce de résistance” comes next with the serving of a lavish Rijsttafel or Traditional Rice Table. The rijsttafel’s origins date from the colonial Dutch days in Indonesia and was created to celebrate the exotic abundance of local cuisine and as a way of entertaining on a grand scale.
