It’s going to be an extra cosy Christmas in Ubud this season, as The Suku Bali presents their specially prepared culinary offerings, including a very cheeky afternoon tea experience, Christmas-inspired cocktails and celebratory feasts!

One of Ubud’s newest hotspots, The Suku Bali is a unique venue comprised of an expansive living garden, a stylish-yet-laidback lounge and a homely indoor restaurant. Since they opened back in October, they’ve hosted various community events and gatherings, with local empowerment being one of the restaurant’s core values. This value extends into their food and drinks menu as they source directly from local farmers, even growing a lot of their produce in their backyard, connecting diners directly with the source of their food.

This Christmas season, this snug dining destination on the foothills of Ubud has created an array of festive experiences leading up to Christmas Day, with meals and deals to be enjoyed with family and friends.
