Private dining with personal chef - De Suma

Dining

With hundreds of eateries in Seminyak, from casual beach shacks serving nasi goreng and fish satay, to classy fine dining establishments, and everything in between, there is no shortage of dining options when you stay at Villa De Suma.  However, with such lovely surroundings you may prefer to stay at the villa and enjoy the talents of our private chef.  His extensive repertoire includes Asian, Indonesian and Western fare, so you can enjoy a richly flavoured beef rendang, shredded spicy chicken salad, wagyu tenderloin, roasted goats cheese with honey herb dressing, and perhaps finish with a chocolate Pavlova topped with strawberry and mango.  He can also tailor-make dishes to suit any special dietary requirements and offers a customised kids menu.

Fancy an early morning swim followed by a tropical breakfast by the pool?  Or perhaps a seafood and salad lunch delivered straight to your deckchair?  Then cocktails and canapés followed by a barbecue in the garden?  Our chef is particularly proud of his Indonesian Rijstaffel, with eight tasty Indonesian dishes making a memorable feast.  He also offers fun and informative cooking classes.

Meals are prepared from a suggestion menu and need to be ordered in advance to give the chef time to shop.  All groceries and beverages are charged at market price (plus a 20% handling fee which is subject to service and tax at the prevailing rate).

Villa De Suma, Seminyak 4 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite Havens

Translating as ‘flower’ in Sanskrit, stunning Villa De Suma blends old world glamour with modern luxurious comfort.  Hand-picked antiques and ethnic artefacts evoke the magic and the mystery of Indonesia and the Orient, while a team of dedicated staff provide the warm hospitality that Bali is famous for.  Imbued with a charismatic rustic elegance, rich textures are revealed in volcanic lava stone, recycled ironwood pillars, and a magnificent walled garden adorned with staghorn ferns, palms and tropical shrubs.

Located in the heart of lively Seminyak, yet hidden away in a peaceful private estate, Villa De Suma offers the best of both worlds.  It is hard to imagine a better location from which to enjoy all that Seminyak has to offer, from surf beaches to world-class restaurants, beach bars and boutiques.  Yet when its time to chill, just swing back the beautiful antique Chinese doors and retreat into your own private hideaway.  The 12-metre swimming pool surrounded by a wide ironwood deck, sun loungers and lush vertical garden, provides an idyllic setting for lazy sunny days and balmy evenings illuminated by flickering candles and hurricane lanterns. With an iPod dock and Bose speakers to hand, you can choose your own holiday soundtrack.

Four spacious, modern bedrooms are located in two double-storey sleeping pavilions at either end of the pool, making the villa a fair share for groups or families.  The main pavilion is the epitome of tropical living with its whirring fans, fresh coastal breeze and dining table for eight.  A talented private chef is on hand to prepare gourmet meals, seafood barbecues and Indonesian banquets from a suggestion menu, but you may prefer to wander down the lane to sample Eat Street’s eclectic range of restaurants.  Should you wish to explore the island’s mystical volcanoes, picturesque rice fields and fabled temples, Villa De Suma’s friendly manager will be happy to arrange transport or tours.
