Sofitel's Legendary Lunch is Back
It started in 2014 and quickly became the island’s Sunday brunch destination of choice including a review by Condé Nast Traveler calling it “one of the top 10 ultimate brunches in the world.”
The venue, Cucina Osteria & Enoteca at the Sofitel resort Nusa Dua is also referred to as “brunch à la Française.” Every Sunday, from 11am – 3pm, the brunch attracts guests (most lounge for the entire four hours) for its own signature “charcuteries,” along with a dizzy array, think cornucopia, of à la carte offerings (chose alcohol or non-alcohol brunch packages).
It’s not just the variety on offer but the quality of epicurean dining in an indoor and outdoor space set by the pool. Brunch à la Française provides dining guests access to the pool and La Villa Des Enfants Kids Club. Oh, and accompanying children under 12 eat for free.
2019 Bali Collection Festival
In its 6th year, the BCF Nusa Dua features an abundance of local art and culture with products from the Bali artisan community, all supported by PT Bali Nusadewa Village. Held on Indonesia’s Independence Day, August 17, the event showcases fashion, live music and a DJ with plenty to see and do. Tourists and Bali residents typically combine the day with beach relaxation and dining.
