Food to Tantalise the Tastebuds at Bliss Sanctuary for Women

Bliss Sanctuary for Women is a new Balinese bespoke sanctuary located near Seminyak ; designed specifically to cater for women wanting a relaxing and rejuvenating break.

The first of its kind in Bali, Bliss Sanctuary for Women allows guests to design their own holiday experience. It’s not a retreat with activities planned every day, deadlines to meet, and food monitoring, but a sanctuary in the true sense of the word where each visitor can indulge in food, pampering, local travel experiences , and the real essence of Bali.

Zoë Watson – Founder of Bliss Sanctuary for Women, says the menu on offer at Bliss Sanctuary for Women presents a diverse array of sumptuous Balinese signature dishes for guests to enjoy.

“Food is a key focus at Bliss Sanctuary for Women, as it’s a way for our guests to truly experience the Balinese culture,” says Zoë.

“All meals are cooked Indonesian-style within the villa, with many ingredients grown in our own veggie patch, accompanied by an amazing selection of Balinese fresh food menu choices.”

The extensive breakfast menu is comprised of hot and cold options, including fresh fruit salads, yoghurt, and banana, mango or jackfruit pancakes, classic Balinese dishes such as Nasi Goreng, and chicken and beef sates, and vegetarian dishes to make any mouth water.

Guests have the choice of a buffet or a la carte menu for dinner, featuring authentic steamed banana leaf cooking, delicious vegetarian curries and mixed vegetable salads, and signature seafood dishes such as salt and pepper squid, coconut prawns with mango salsa, and an amazing seafood BBQ.

Bliss Sanctuary for Women even offers a ‘Fab Foodie’ package featuring handpicked cooking schools and food experiences for visitors to enjoy. For food lovers this is the perfect experience to gain insights into Balinese culture first-hand through their much loved food traditions, and how to prepare dishes with Balinese exotic herbs and spices.

“A lot of women find cooking therapeutic and are eager to learn new recipes and cooking styles, so we can arrange cooking classes for our guests to learn the art of Indonesian style cooking, and take a bit of the culture back home with them,” says Zoë.

“But for those wanting a more casual approach, they can take a trip to the local markets, jump in the kitchen, choose their lunch dishes, and learn how to cook them with our lovely cook Alit.”

With no couples, no kids, and only a handful of guests at any one time – Bliss Sanctuary for Women is a haven for those seeking ‘time-out’ from the everyday, and a supportive space to refuel, rejuvenate, and reflect.
