Balinese Crispy Duck; our first fantastic introduction to Botanist Restaurant

After a smooth check-in, we were immediately heralded to Botanist Restaurant for lunch. Located within this serene expanse, not far from the lobby area, the renowned open-air eatery of Blue Karma Dijiwa Ubud offers guests a culinary journey that seamlessly integrates wellness and gastronomic pleasure, focusing on locally sourced superfoods. We started with the Beef Quesadilla with fries—an appetizer with a generous portion, featuring soft and crunchy quesadillas with melted cheese. The Balinese Crispy Duck, served with Sayur Urap, steamed rice, and three kinds of sambal, was fragrant and authentically cooked. The Blue Karma Freshness Mocktail, made with ginger, lemongrass, lime, and honey, complemented our meal perfectly.

Upon completing our delightful lunch, we were escorted to our room, a One Bedroom Villa Garden View aptly named 'Awan'. This stunning wooden cabin, adorned with lavish interior decor, immediately captured our hearts. The spacious and comfortable setting, complete with vintage furnishings and ambient LED lighting, made us feel as if we were resting on a cloud. The room offered sweeping views of lush greenery, seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor living with its large windows, breezy balconies, and semi-outdoor bathrooms. It was the perfect sanctuary to reconnect with nature, guiding us back to our own inner peace and balance.

Immersive ‘Melody Escape’ Dine

The meticulosly authentic Ayam Timbungan

The first evening of our stay unfolded by a special 'Melody Escape' night at Botanist Restaurant. The event featured a live flute performance, where the musician played popular songs in a traditional Balinese flute rendition, casually walked around and interacted with each table to create an immersive and enchanting atmosphere throughout our delightful supper. The star of our dinner was Ayam Timbungan, a traditional Balinese dish from Karangasem village, cooked in bamboo poles. The tender chicken, steamed with Balinese spices and served with steamed vegetables, brown rice, and sambal, was incredibly flavorful and authentic. We also savored the Minty Moringa and Spinach Cream Soup, Body Cleanser juice, and the restaurant's specialty, Incredible Tofu and Moringa.

Day 2: Serenity and Holistic Wellness

We woke up to the serene ambiance of post-rain Ubud, feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. Breakfast at Botanist was a delightful set menu featuring granola with pineapple, papaya, watermelon, yogurt, and honeycomb, alongside Tofu Scramble and Pancakes with Banana.
