It was a truly special day, Christmas in Bali at Muntigs Bar & Restaurant at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa. Many guests were away from their families, many with families here on Nusa Lembongan, and from all over the world. From India to South Africa, to Australia, to Canada, to The North Pole, we had a range of personalities and ages joining us coming together for a beautiful lunch under the sun with the impeccable sea and Mount Agung view. On the menu was a decadent three-course meal created by our new Executive Chef, Matthias Beer, and a unique holiday-inspired cocktail feature from our new Bar Manager and creative mixologist, Luca Rossignoli. With traditional Balinese dancing, and even a visit from Santa Claus straight from the North Pole (with a little sun tan!) and a couple of his lucky elves to visit the kids and give presents, it was a heartwarming and very merry day. The weather gods cooperated and delivered blue skies and sunshine, and the local gods delivered a positive special energy; even had the local Balinese staff in the Christmas spirit playing along with the children and guests all in seasonal cheer. Sure the white Christmas is on the other side of the world, but with the photos of yesterday, the smiles and view will make anyone a little envious of the annual Batu Karang Christmas Day lunch….and you know where to find us again next year! We look forward to seeing you again.
