Description: The Sanskrit word for "beautiful", Sundara pays tribute to the glowing sun that warms Bali's hottest beachfront restaurant and bar. Enjoy a casual lunch of light, shareable cuisine ideal for soaking up the salt-air and panoramic views. Lounge away the afternoon on an ocean-front bale, sun-splashed daybed or table on the open terrace overlooking the 57-meter infinity edge pool, just steps above the surf. For dinner, Sundara transforms into one of Bali's most sophisticated dining experiences, with a Modern Asian-inspired menu that can be served as individual portions or for sharing with a companion or group. After dark, the beachside ambience becomes candlelit and sexy with the island's most tantric avant-garde cocktails.

“Romantic dinning experienced”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

I went there with my husband for romantic dinner on his birthday, first impression was relieved knowing that i did not disappointed him as that was supposed to be a surprise for him. We both love the place as they seated us facing the romantic Jimbaran beach on the evening. Located right in front of Jimbaran beach in the Four Season Hotel this place is worth to check for those of you who seek fine dining experience and happened to live around Jimbaran - Nusa Dua -Pecatu as it wont take you more than half an hour to get here.

However we actually had bad experienced of waiting too long for our main course to be served but the view did help us ease up a bit. And we certain have the manager himself came to us to apologize,fair enough.

The service like any other reviewer wrote here is indeed a bit too attentive i might say, we went there to dine and having quality time together not to be bothered every 5minutes for this and that. They need to give some privacy though.

But overall we both were happy and love the place,the foods,the view and i will highly recommend this place to whoever i know on the island.

“Spectacular pool and service!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Rented a Lounge bed by the pool and enjoyed the day being attended to by amazing staff, such as Manager In Training, Julie from Chicago! My sister from Colorado was visiting me in Western Australia and we flew over to Bali for a couple of days. Sundara has a spectacular ocean front setting with immaculate food and service -- exactly what the Four Seasons is known for!

“Slightly over serviced”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Quite good food, perfect location, staff are rather over-attentive - but maybe this is the Four Seasons style.

“Eat, drink, lounge, swim....sigh”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Sundara is fabulous. New Australian chef doing some lovely food, great wine list and cocktails to die for!
Lounge on the sun deck or around the infinity edge pool right on the beach at Jimbaran during the day, and move to the bar or restaurant as the sun sets. Some lovely touches like free ice cold white chocolate and passionfruit "popsicles" while you lounge daytime and free tapas and pizza slices circulating while you contemplate your next cocktail! Try this as a couple or with a group of friends....
