For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Inside the world’s most picture-perfect restaurant

Restaurant dining isn’t only about the food. It’s also about the view, the ambiance and the service.

TripAdvisor has named Koral Restaurant in Nusa Dua Bali as the world’s most picture-perfect restaurant.

Koral is the signature restaurant at The Apurva Kempinski Bali. This sensational fine dining establishment is nestled inside an aquarium and offers a total sensory experience when you dine.

It draws design inspiration from the tropical characteristics of Bali and the great Majapahit empire, which brought prosperity to all of Indonesia from the 13th to 16th centuries.

The restaurant’s interior features teakwood ceilings and walls made from traditional red clay bricks – the building blocks of the Majapahit empire. Elegant black and white Tegel tiles, popular among the royal court, further add to the sense of historic splendour.

Large windows and an otherworldly glass-roofed tunnel give diners an incredible view of the underwater world where tropical fish swirl in a kaleidoscope of colours.

About Koral

But Koral isn’t just pretty. It also gets five stars from reviewers for its delicate, delicious meals and impeccable service.

Acclaimed head chef Andrea Astone has created an exquisite selection of dishes and cocktails inspired by the indigenous flavours and ingredients of the archipelago.

Seafood features heavily on the menu with many TripAdvisor reviewers recommending the lobster. Guests can also choose red grouper, blue crab, foie gras, wagyu and truffles. Every dish is plated like a work of art.

So too are the cocktails. The Sea Symphony, a blend of Jose Cuervo tequila infused with butterfly pea, triple sec, pineapple juice, moringa juice and agave syrup, is an absolute must-try.
