After a lot of heart, soul, experience & work, Chef Matthias Beer & Assistant Executive Chef Nyoman Sriadnyana have finally launched the last of the three menus at Muntigs Bar & Restaurant at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa! A completely new set of gastronomical offerings (with a few favourites that we just had to keep!), the chefs rose to the challenge and creativity of a menu completely unique to Nusa Lembongan. Using local fresh ingredients, combined with some imported (such as Wagyu beef), our Breakfast, All-Day Dining, & Dinner menus are ready to try. Combining Western & Asian cuisine, the menu is full of fresh flavours, sweet & savoury, and fusion dishes to exceed your palate expectations. With photo-worthy presentation, your next visit with us will be sure to be something new & different….and just wait for dessert course to top it all off. Please book your table with us, and come in for a beautiful dining experience.
If you haven’t heard about The Howff Whisky, Gin, & Wine Bar at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, now you will know. After a wee bit of Scottish blood, sweat, & tears, the doors finally opened in December, and it has been receiving nothing but spectacular reviews. With those “hard to find” gins & whiskys, with unique & carefully shaken cocktails created by our Italian mixologist, The Howff promises something completely unlike you have ever experienced. With a secret prohibition-style venue set over the rocks, and a view of the surf breaks and the magical Mount Agung, The Howff is truly a venue like no other in the world.
Also complementing the beautiful cocktail and spirits menu is an international tapas menu with fresh land & sea dishes in sweet & savoury flavours. It is common for the guests to visit The Howff & forget where in the world they are, & get lost in the experience of the art of The Howff. With the skilled bartenders and service styled in striking Scottish fashion, the candle-lit atmosphere will be perfect for a pre- or post-dinner drink at Muntigs Bar & Restaurant. Ask for directions to find your way to the bar over the rocks, and transport yourself to somewhere else just for a while.

The Balinese are never short of a ceremony or a celebration, and this coming April 5 marks the start of one of the most important of the Balinese Hindu holidays of the year. At Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, The Deck Cafe & Bar, Muntigs Bar & Restaurant, The Howff Whisky, Gin, & Wine Bar, & Lulur Spa, we are very proud to honour the local traditions of Galungan. Galungan is the festival that celebrates Dharma’s victory over Adharma (good over evil), the time during the 210-day Balinese calendar when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. During the 10 day period, the family must be hospitable to the spirits through rituals of prayers and offerings to welcome the spirits to the material realm. Also lining the streets are the “penjor” (bamboo poles with offerings hanging from the ends).
The festival is marked at the end of the 10 days with Kuningan, when the ancestral spirits leave the Earth on April 15. Galungan and Kuningan on Nusa Lembongan are full of colour, ritual, and celebration, and should you wish to participate in any of the local festivities, please do not hesitate to ask any of our staff on your visit with us. And enjoy!

Sometimes even cocktails need “facelifts” too, just to keep life interesting. But what to do with an old faithful favourite of Muntigs Bar & Restaurant at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa with the Lychee Mojito that was so treasured and loved? The burning question, do we leave well enough alone (if it’s not broken, don’t fix it, right?), or do we go out on a limb to see if we can make it even better than before. Well, with a dash of this, a little more of that, add some house-dried fresh Lembongan coconut for a sprinkle and there we go…. The brand new “Loose Lychees Sink Ships”! It is just. so. fresh… And delicious for those hot days under the Nusa Lembongan sun. Thirst-quenching, just the right balance of sweet, citrus, and notes of lychee, you really are in the perfect place to be drinking something like this. Go on, have a few of these, get the cocktail-fueled conversation going and see where the day or night takes you, sailors!
It is important to change things up, and keep everything interesting. We have been around on Nusa Lembongan for a while now, and have seen a lot of recipes come and go. So at Muntigs Bar & Restaurant at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa we are so happy to introduce our fresh & creative All Day Dining menu! Healthy, fresh, & using the finest of ingredients, the new options are designed to be enjoyed poolside or overlooking the sea for that memorable, satiating, food experience. One of the new favourites on the list is the Baby Octopus Salad. Tossed with fresh lime, garlic, cucumber, tomato, fresh herbs, and a wee side of lightly toasted garlic bread, this salad has every colourful and healthy element one could ask for. With beautiful texture & flavour combinations, you will leave feeling “just right” for that day or night exploring, adventuring, or relaxing – whatever your holiday-heart desires. So please come visit us to experience the new menu our chefs have created, from the sounds of what we have heard from our guests so far, you won’t be disappointed!
