Interview 1 January 2018 with travel journalist Juliet Kinsman

Life under the volcano is normal for most people and we have welcomed many guests back to Bali recently. Our message to those still unsure about visiting Bali is come and visit and explore and relax and enjoy Bali as you wish. Agung volcano is now an active volcano, just like the ones in Hawaii and New Zealand and many other places round the globe. Respect it’s power and it’s beauty.

Where We Are

BALI ASLI is located in Gelumpang village, near the town of Amlapura, Karangasem regency, in the north east of Bali. It is about 2 hours drive from the airport, and 30 minutes from both Candidasa village and Amed village. BALI ASLI is nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, there is not a building to be seen.

The Restaurant

BALI ASLI promotes Balinese cuisine and culture without exploiting it or it’s people. We embrace our community, supporting those who fish, farm and forage in the nearby fields, ocean and jungle. Our menu offers traditional Balinese food using an authentic Balinese style kitchen. We cook on wood-fired, mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine. Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market.

The Cooking School

The cooking school runs unique classes themed on “a day in the life of...” every class includes an adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Whether it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they get home.
