An extremely airy hall opening to tropical gardens and the sunset over the sea, The Bale Agung has very high ceilings supported by giant wooden columns inspired by the ceremonial house in a Balinese ancient villa and decorated with beautiful antiques and artworks. A gigantic 4.5 metre high wooden Garuda statue, carbed from a 120-years-old tree trunk, makes this room a stunning venue for a round or long table reception.
A 300-years-old Kang Xi period temple that was almost demolished in the 1990s in Java. It was transported and reconstructed in its entirety at Tugu, and it stands as a symbol of harmony between the ancient Peranakan (Indonesian Chinese) and ancient Balinese culture. This temple is housed in a beautiful red room, displaying a spectacular 18th century statue of the Goddess of Mercy and various other priceless artwork. The Bale Sutra is said to have housed the most beautiful dinners in the country.
Ji Terrace by The Sea
Ji terrace by the sea takes you on a journey to the heart of Indonesia, Japan, India, and Thailand with contemporary & playful Japanese & Asian inspired dishes and a 180 degrees undisturbed view over the sparkling Indian Ocean and Canggu Beach. The food served at Ji terrace by the sea is a modern interpretation of ancient Asian cultures. Whereas the already existing JI at Bale Sutra 1706 celebrates classical Japanese cuisine with fusion from other Asian cultures, we detour from this route at JI Terrace by the Sea. Our team of Japanese & Asian-trained chefs, led by Chef Colin Buchan (previously chef of Gordon Ramsay restaurants in London as well as Jason Atherton’s Pollen in Singapore), had fun experimenting with creating dishes that are global, contemporary & playful. The cocktails take a similar inspiration as the food – with Asian infusions of our premium spirits, the cocktails at Ji Terrace by the Sea are 200% seductive in flavours as well as presentation. On the 2nd and 3rd floor, as the DJ plays seductive tunes from sunset to evening, Ji Terrace by the Sea celebrates Bali beach life to the fullest!
