We first stayed at the St Regis 4 years ago in a 2 bedroom lagoon access villa. The villa rivaled anything else we have stayed in world wide. We cant always afford to stay here now that the prices have gone up but we always go for one of their amazing breakfasts.
On this last visit, we were trying out the new Sofitel and went to Sunday Brunch at Boneka.
It was fantastic. For around $AUD 59.00 we had the usual special breakfast features including river lobster omelette, wagu steak and eggs, caviar blinis and beautifully prepared and delicious additional buffet options. There are always waiters walking around with tempting trays of yummy morsels. You do not have to get up to the buffet if you dont want to. We do get up and choose but the waiters will fetch anything for you with their great service, big smiles and excellent english.
As part of the cost, they serve the best pre brunch alcholic and non alcholic cocktails we have ever had in Bali or anywhere else for that matter. From 11am to 12pm, the King Cole Bar serves these aperitifs with a live pianist. The signature bloody mary, cosmopolitan, passionfruit crush cocktails were so good, we had to put the brakes on as there would not have been any room for the wonderful food during brunch.
We worked out that back in Australia, the cocktails we enjoyed would have costed more than the Brunch.
So the meal was free really.
If the pre dinner drinks arent enough, you can also buy beverage packages to accompany Brunch. Considering the high tax that the Indonesian government puts on wine, these are quite reasonably priced also.
Many thanks to Doni Frenki, the Manger of Boneka. He always remembers us which is amazing considering how many people must pass through Boneka. Although he is busy, he makes time for a chat towards the end of service.
As you can tell by the review, please do yourself a favour and experience Brunch here and dont forget to get there by 11am for cocktails.
You will love it!!!!
