Candlelights & Sunset Views: A Romantic Dinner by the Beach in Kuta (Bali, Indonesia)

When it comes to a romantic dinner that’s different from the typical restaurant dine-ins that you’ve been doing with your loved one, a sunset date by the beach is an affair that’s worth considering!

So if by any chance you’re in Bali, Indonesia for your couples vacation or honeymoon, head over to Kuta at Ma Joly to enjoy an enchanted fine dining that not only offers a scrumptious 6-course dinner under a beautiful tent, but also offers a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean and a beautiful sunset that will be etched to both of your memories forever.

Jonas and I took up the chance to try this romantic setting and it was an experience that we will never forget!

Romantic Dinner at Kuta

This romantic dinner package offers a free pick-up service — a really great inclusion since it took away the hassle of finding a taxi during such a peak hour. By the time that we reached the venue, I kid you not: we were blown away by the glorious scene before us as we got our first glimpse of the tents by the beach!

*In the middle is a designed section that’s originally intended for wedding events, but it could also be a dining spot other than the tents.

We were quickly ushered to our seats and in a couple of minutes, our personal waiter introduced himself to us as he presented a paper that showed the details of our 6-course dinner. This could change depending on the season and availability, but customarily, their romantic dinner menu would look like this:

Pistachio-Salmon Terrine (cucumber salsa, mango emulsion, scallion cream cheese, caviar)

Thick Lobster Bisque (seafood ravioli, tomato confit and fresh herb dill)
Creamy Pumpkin Soup (with shitake mushroom tortellini, crumbled feta cheese)

Poached Prawn with Fresh Tarragon (potato-coriander mayo, jackfruit relish, seaweed with sesame seed dressing)
Duck Confit (baby beetroot, pomelo, cherry tomato, toasted walnut, black olive, organic baby mesclun salad, honey-orange dressing)

Strawberry Sorbet
Lime Sorbet

Seared Beef Tenderloin (mousseline sweet potato, balsamic warm baby vegetables, rosemary flavored beef jus)
Crispy Skin Red Snapper Fillet (green pea puree, angel hair vegetables, mussel-pepper fricassee)

Tiramisu (espresso, mascarpone cream, java coffee ice cream)
Mango Fruit Tart (raspberry coulis, strawberry ice cream, sweet lime skin)

Bali Coffee
Java Highland Tea

While we were enjoying our dinner, we were also enjoying the breathtaking view before us as the sun slowly melted down the horizon…

  3. Wow that looks so amazing and perfect! Definitely an experience you'll never forget!

    1. And an experience that I hope everyone gets to experience ;)

  4. This looks beautiful! I never thought of visiting this place for a getaway but this post has definitely changed that. The food looked amazing also. I am very jealous!

    1. Well, it's never too late to fly to Bali and have experiences like this ;) Hope you get to try this soon!

  5. Beautiful !!! I liked so much, good post :)

    1. Thank you! :D

  6. I would love to do something like this someday with my husband! We went to a sunset feast in Maui, but it was quite busy with too many people.

    1. Oh you will love this place then, there weren't that many people and you have a clear view of the beach and the sunset <3

  7. Such a romantic atmosphere! I'd love to have the same reception if ever someone is going to propose to me!

    1. Then I surely wish the best for you! I think everyone will love a setting like this :D

  8. I've had many a romantic dinner on an island (my husband is from Sardegna and we go there very summer!). I also lived there for four years. Nothing beats the peace and tranquility of being on the beach, and hearing the ocean!

    1. Awww that sounds so dreamy!!! I hope you get to experience one in Bali :D

  9. I have always wanted to have a romantic dinner such as this with candles on the beach. Breathtaking. The closest Ive came close to this is at a restaurant that overlooks the water. This idea is perfect for a romantic memory . The pricing is very inexpensive. So if I ever get to travel there I will look this place up.

    1. Then it's my wish you get to experience it soon! These experiences are always so amazing. <3 They surely make the heart swell for couples.

  10. I'll be honest: I never considered Indonesia as a place with a lot of romantic getaway spots. However, your post has made me second guess myself. That view is absolutely perfect and the meal looks divine.

    1. Well now is the time to think of it, indeed ;) I hope you get to experience this!
