We finished our meal with scoops of delicious gelato and a refreshing Berry Peach mocktail.

Day 2: Culinary Delights and Relaxation

Fresh Air and Delightful Breakfast

We woke up to the fresh air of Ubud and headed to KauKau Restaurant for breakfast. With a name inspired by the coconut, a staple ingredient in Bali, KauKau brings elegance to authentic Indonesian dishes with complex seasonings. This all-day dining restaurant with a pleasant open air setting offers a fantastic blend of flavors and cultures, using fresh, local produce. For breakfast, we enjoyed Homemade Granola with Fresh Milk, Pain Au Raisin, Two Eggs Scramble With Chives, Fried Rice with Fried Eggs, Acar pickle, and Crackers (kerupuk), and Bubuh Injin, a traditional Indonesian Organic Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Cream.

Lunch at KauKau was equally delightful. We tried the Chicken Caesar Salad with grilled chicken, crisp romaine lettuce, bacon, creamy Caesar dressing, croutons, and parmigiano reggiano topped with a soft poached egg. The Spaghetti Carbonara, with mushrooms, pork bacon, cream sauce, and baguette croutons, was creamy and flavorful. We also enjoyed a Tropical Treat Smoothie Bowl with mango, banana, strawberry, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds, and Soto Ayam, an Indonesian chicken soup with vermicelli noodles, tomato, boiled egg, ginger and turmeric broth, celery, and crispy shallots. For dessert, we savored a Chocolate Lava Cake with strawberry coulis and vanilla ice cream, accompanied by an Arkara Ginger Spring mocktail, a sweet, sour, and fizzy drink with lychee, ginger, fresh lime juice, and lemonade.

Blissful Treatment

In the afternoon, we treated ourselves to a 60-minute massage at Kamalini Spa, a traditional ‘Rumah Kayu’ (wooden house) that blends seamlessly with nature. The wellness venue offers pure refreshment, a relaxation of the soul, and a journey of revival. Throughout our treatment, we were captivated by the soothing sound of trickling water from the nearby pond and the harmonious choir of insects from the surrounding lush trees and greenery; Ubud vibe at its finest! Inspired by the natural beauty of Bali and its rich cultural traditions, the spa offers a unique health and beauty experience. Here, skilled therapists use natural ingredients found in various indigenous flowers to provide an exceptional wellness treatment. The spa's Balinese Massage treatment works wonders in providing deeply relaxing effects for both our body and mind. The experience was rejuvenating, leaving us feeling refreshed and revitalized.
