For breakfast we go to the Gaya Fusion restaurant which is such a pleasant walk with all the lush greenery surrounding us! Breakfast is a la carte but it is abundant. It seemed meager at first when we looked at it on the menu, but the portions are generous and the ingredients fresh. So we enjoyed our breakfasts and it was a welcome change from all the hotel buffet breakfasts we’ve had.
You can choose between continental, local (nasi goreng), etc.
I think the only thing we didn’t get to try is the continental breakfast… which seemed too.. um… continental. =P Each free a al carte breakfast comes with juice, coffee and fruits. (Don’t you love the white ceramic plate below?)
In the mornings we see a Balinese woman go around with a platter of offerings on her head go from shrine to shrine. I love seeing this daily profusion of offerings to the gods. It is such a beautiful ritual and brings to mind that this is indeed why Bali is known as “The Island of the Gods.”
The many unseen inhabitants of Bali – gods, ancestors and demons – are treated by the Balinese as honored guests through the daily presentation of offerings (banten) of every imaginable shape, color and substance. These are first and foremost gifts – expressing gratitude to benevolent spirits, and placating mischievous demons to prevent them from disturbing the harmony of life.
Since Gaya is also known for their ceramics, it is only natural for their restaurant to showcase their modern masterpieces in their tableware. It was fun to see that they also use it in their decor (like the bamboo drop lamps) and furniture like the table legs below!
