You can find something that suits everyone’s taste. For guests with a special diet, speak to the chefs at the restaurant and they will do their best to cook you a meal.

A choice of fresh fruit juices are available during breakfast at the buffet area, while complimentary house red, white and rose wines are served during lunch and dinner. Just ask the wait staff for a glass or two!

Our favorite food at the Agung include the pizza, miso soup, Indonesia mee goreng, Babi guling, beef wellington and not forgetting the strong rum & raisin ice cream!

The Deck restaurant serves ala-carte meals and is open for late lunch, dinner, and late dinner. The late lunch and late dinner are the same menu. You can have late lunch at The Deck after completing the check-in process.

The ala carte dinner requires reservations which can be made at reception at least one day before dining, subject to space availability. The restaurant offers a paid option to upgrade your dinner to a lobster dish.

Our favorites are the local dishes – nasi goreng with satay and nasi with beef rendang, available for late lunch or late dinner. The dinner has two menus (1 and 2), served on alternate days. In the event, if you are not full after your meal at The Deck, you can order an extra course from the menu or continue with buffet dinner at Agung Restaurant, subject to the restaurant opening hours.

Kids Friendly

Club Med Bali allows everyone to take a break from their busy lives, even parents! After breakfast, leave your children at the Kids Club and the Club Med GOs will take care of them from morning until evening. The kids club operates more like a daycare, rather than a roster of activities, as it includes all-day care, nap time, food etc. This leaves parents free to relax at the Zen Pool, go for a spa treatment or even learn a new sport!

Kids from 4 months until 17 years are welcomed at the Club Med Bali Kids Club.

  • Baby Club Med, 04 to 23 months – additional cost
  • Petit Club Med, 02 to 03 years – additional cost
  • Mini Club Med, 04 to 11 years – complimentary

The Kid’s Club is complimentary for children aged four to seventeen. While the Baby Club Med and Petit Club Med is a chargeable service. It is recommended to pre-book the Baby Club Med and Petit Club Med service at the time of making your Club Med reservations due to limited space available per day. Club Med keeps the staff to children ratio low so they can provide more attention to the little ones.

In the evenings, Club Med has the “Amazing Family” program where parents can now create holiday memories with their children. Families will take part in fun-filled activities including family yoga, Twister, Jenga, treasure hunt and parties.

The People

What makes Club Med different from the other resorts in Bali, is the people. Everyone at Club Med Bali are warm, friendly, and work hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

During the day, the Club Med Bali GOs are working at one of the activities, boutique or in the restaurant. Come night time, they turn into performers in the theatre shows, leading dances and making sure you have a fun time.

The GOs comprise a wide range of nationalities, working together harmoniously. What this means, you can come from anywhere in the world and there is a high chance someone can speak your language here.

Come as a stranger and leave as friends

Go on a digital detox! Keep your mobile phones and take the opportunity to make friends from all over the world. The Club Med GOs are super friendly, so don’t be surprised if they come and start a conversation with you, or even join you at your table during lunch or dinner. This unique culture is something that I have yet to see in any other resort around the world.
