When it comes to weekends in Bali, nothing tempts more than a long, leisurely brunch. With grand feasts followed by a sun-soaked lounge by the pool, a Bali-style brunch is hard to beat.

Bali’s Longest Brunch

Settle in, ladies and gentlemen, because this is going to be an experience. Sundara Bali’s signature ‘Bali’s Longest Brunch’ invites you for 6 hours of swimming, sipping and savouring on the Jimbaran beachfront.

Your Sunday brunch journey starts at 11am, when the sun is high in the sky, enticing you to start off with a cool dip in the 57-metre infinity pool looking out over Jimbaran Bay. This brunch experience is all about freshly prepared dishes, with a selection of unlimited tapas-style plates of different cuisines presented by different chefs. Relish in a mixture of Modern Australian, Indian, Balinese and Modern Asian cuisine, from three different menus: Entrees to Share, Hot Sharing Style and Dessert Creations. This brunch is perfect for those who love to take their time and luxuriate as they bite and sip with live music in the background. Families coming to Sundara can take advantage of the kids club as well, allowing parents to really kick back. Free flow beverage packages are available.

A Barbecue Brunch

For many, Sundays are all about family and nothing says family days more than a barbecue brunch with the gang! Azul Beach Club, a gem along Legian Beach, presents their very own take on a Sunday barbecue for brunch.

A three-storey, all-bamboo structure, Azul Beach Club is difficult to miss on the Legian beachfront! Providing a truly tropical atmosphere, including specialty ‘Tiki’ cocktails’, this beach view venue is all about island living. On Sundays, they really pick things up, as their incredibly priced brunch invites you to enjoy all-you-can-eat smokehouse specials. For the meat-lovers out there, get ready to dig into a variety of fresh seafood, roasted lamb leg, garlic roasted beef rump, whole chickens, and BBQ baby pork ribs. Accompanying this menu of meat, are sides, vegetables, house salads and a la carte desserts. You can beat the heat mid-brunch with a quick dip in the Azul swimming pool (free access for brunch diners); Azul also organises food-focused activities for the children to keep them entertained. The barbecue keeps on grilling from 12pm to 4pm, but come 2pm Latin tunes chime in and a Salsa session takes place – you’re welcome to show off your moves too! This is accompanied by Azul’s ‘Where’s My Mojito’ for an extra saucy Sunday.
