After walking the Campuan Ridge we decided to check out the new Jungle Fish Restaurant in Ubud. Set on the hillside with this stunning view this classy new place boasts a delicious and eclectic menu. We enjoyed the Pink Panther ( dragonfruit smoothie), choc shakes, Squid, Meatballs, Nuggets and a great fish, fennel and cous cous lunch. We completed the meal with creamy cold icecream and hot chocolate lava cake. You can choose to dine up on the balcony or chill poolside with a more casual bar snack menu. You do need to pay to swim and lounge by the pool bar and your kids will need to be supevised however are more than welcome, with a great kids menu as well. A stunning new place for lunch if you are in Ubud. xxx
Whilst your enjoying the sights of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan perhaps pop on around to The Palms Ceningan. Up the hill, around past the large temples, beyond the markets, over the bridge, past Le Pirates, past the cliff jump, follow the signs and you will end up here. A wide selection on the menu, yummy juices, cold drinks and good nasi goreng. The pool is clear and the view amazing. There is a surf break at the beach below however the waves kind of fat and slow the day we went, alhtough there was a crowd of surfers trying to catch some waves. A beautiful place to spend the afternoon, remember your suncream, hat, towel and thongs as it gets HOT HOT HOT on the deck in full sun ! ENJOY . xxxx
As you can tell by the photos we have been hanging out here a fair bit. The Beach Club at Sandy Bay Nusa Lembongan is a solid, all round place to hang out for breakfast , lunch, dinner, icecreams, cocktails, pool side hangs and I am pretty sure they had a little wine cellar which I will check to see if it was actually a wine shop !). It is a little tricky to find ( not if you follow the signs or get a pick up from your accommodation), however is worth it. Whilst its not a swimming beach at all, it is very beautiful and great for the kids to make race tracks for hermit crabs. You can come just to enjoy the pool /towel and sunlounge for a small fee or the food here for a meal is one of the best on the island. The kids are welcomed with colouring in and a great range of options for them to eat (Beau does love a bit of bacon with his choclate milkshakes ). Worth travelling for perhaps around 15 minutes from the main bay and along the journey you will see one of the largest temples on the island, a bit of the locals farming life and there is actually a really cute boutique just in front, which I will share details of in another post. We can highly recommend The Beach club at Sandy Bay, the prawn pasta was the best I have ever had and the watermelon with vodkas where so good I had to try three of them !!! Yehaaaaaaaa x
Just on the left heading up to Canggu, past the Kerobokan intersection you will find Warung D’ Sawah, set amongst the rice paddies, with loads of grass for children to play, you enter through a beautiful little garden. The food is good with some traditional Indo favourites, the Bebek Goreng ( fried Duck) is really worth a try and I think you will be happy with the prices also.
