Many people mentioned the wonderful setting here but to be honest, the beach side setting is not unusual as far as beach resorts go. The design of the restaurant is relatively simple and does not have the wow look that comes with a high design/ architecture budget. Pleasant but not spectacular. There is no indoor sitting option here and sometimes I do like to escape into airconditioned comfort. My other favourite restaurant in Bali is Kayuputi at the St Regis, Nusa Dua and Kayuputi wins in the style department.
For me, Breeze at the Samaya is all about the food! And while I had thought of Breeze as a Western restaurant similar to Kayuputi, I found myself ordering Indonesian food here for dinner and lunch. We stayed at the Samaya and also had the breakfasts and afternoon teas at Breeze.
Everything I have tried on the ala carte breakfast menu was nothing short of excellent, including the mie goreng set, croque madame and smoked salmon with scrambled egg. Compared to Semaya Ubud's breakfasts, this was several notches better.
I love the nasi campur and crispy duck meal. Prices are high for Indonesian food but you are getting a much higher quality. After trying the Indonesian food here, I have found other smaller local restaurants to be rather disappointing.
The only disappointment was the afternoon tea set. Compared to the daily afternoon tea at Samaya Ubud, the tea food seemed less exquisite, especially the scones which were strangely cut into halves vertically rather than horizontally. It was still good but just not as good and refined as the similar items served at Samaya Ubud.
I did not try the Western dishes here.
I have now added this to my favourites' list.
