Guests are invited to an underwater world of bistronomic delights at Koral, the highly-anticipated new aquarium dining experience at The Apurva Kempinski Bali. All of the senses are stimulated at this unique venue, which introduces the underwater dining concept to the Island of the Gods for the very first time.
At Koral, diners will feast on elegant dishes inspired by Indonesian coastal flavours and crafted from local ingredients, at a venue that’s both casual and refined. More than just a restaurant, Koral offers a full bistronomic experience, combining delectable dining, laid-back ambiance and the rarefied atmosphere of an aquarium, accompanied by a hypnotic soundtrack that captures the magic and mystery of life below the waves.
Like the rest of The Apurva Kempinski Bali – which opened in the upmarket Nusa Dua area of Bali in February 2019 – Koral takes design inspiration from the tropical characteristics of Bali and the great Majapahit empire, which brought prosperity to all of Indonesia from the 13th to 16th Centuries.
Inside, teak wood ceilings and walls made from traditional red clay bricks – the building blocks of the Majapahit empire – frame the aquamarine views through the windows and underfoot, elegant black and white tegel tiles popular among the royal court further add to the sense of historic splendour. Beyond the aquarium windows and the otherworldly glass-roofed tunnel, tropical fish swirl in a kaleidoscope of colours, creating a mesmerising backdrop for the spectacular cuisine that awaits.
