Meanwhile private afternoon cooking classes is priced at USD 95++ per person.
We will feature a selection of new Spanish wines to Bali. Cava, the traditional Spanish sparkling wine from Barcelona, is made in the same way as Champagne. Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, Rosado and Semi Seco beautifully crafted from local indigenous grapes showing fresh lively fruit flavours, will be also available. Morlanda red wine is a blend of Garnacha and Carinena, aged for at least one year in oak barrels, only produced in good vintages from the oldest plots of our vineyard high in the hills of Priorat, possibly the trendiest Spanish wine growing area at the moment. Valdubon white wine is from Rueda where the local Verdejo grape is partly fermented and aged on lees in the barrel to create a deliciously complex wine that makes an excellent accompaniment to fish and seafood. Valdubon Honoris is our very best wine from Ribera del Duero where the Tempranillo grape produces Spain’s most highly regarded red wine. Honoris is a blend of Tempranillo with a small addition of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 2 years in barrels and several years in bottle before release. A truly exceptional wine.
Painted in an air of sultry Moroccan charm, the Ju-Ma-Na is the perfect vantage point for admiring the natural ebb and tide of the glorious Indian Ocean. With cosmopolitan cocktails and aperitifs, shisha and Arabian-influenced snacks and drinks, Ju-Ma-Na Restaurant is the ideal spot for an evening of relaxation after a bustling day.
