As the joyous holiday season approaches, Samsara Ubud has prepared some festive offerings to be savoured with loved ones. The resort’s inspired restaurant, The Kelusa, will host a Christmas Eve Dinner featuring delectable delights like ham and asparagus, salmon and free-range turkey. Meanwhile the Christmas Day Dinner will be a Balinese-themed four-course feast, comprising tuna sambal matah, nasi campur and sticky black rice pudding, and enhanced with a children’s choir performance.
For New Year, The Kelusa invites diners to enjoy the New Year’s Eve Moonlight BBQ, brimming with extensive selections of succulent meat and the freshest seafood. Afterwards, diners can treat themselves to the Moonlight Cinema, while waiting for the big countdown. To rejuvenate yourself after all the festivities, don’t miss the New Year’s Day Brunch on 1st January.
In addition to all the festive happenings, Samsara Ubud has also launched a one-of-a-kind afternoon tea, inspired by the enchanting Balinese culture. Revel in the wide selection of Balinese loose-leaf tea, paired with Balinese-inspired light bites. The sweet selection features pisang goreng, dadar gulung, bubur injin, klepon, wajik and many more, while the savoury snacks include sate lilit, tum ayam and lumpia sayur, among others.
The Balinese afternoon tea is served on a keben (traditional basket) and a dulang (wooden stand board) by the staff dressed in traditional getup at the resort’s Jineng – traditional Balinese gazebo, so you know you’ll experience a true Bali-inspired journey. The afternoon tea is available daily from 2pm to 3.30pm and from 4pm to 5.30pm, and space is limited so reservations are paramount.
